Subject: Alleged discrimination in the matter of pay fixation of Ex-servicemen re-employed in Public Sector Banks.

I am directed to refer to your letter No. HR&IR/KSC/G0VT158917746, dated 27th August, 2013sending therewith ‘Draft Guidelines regarding pay fixation of ex-serivicemen/Ex-ECOs/SSCOs in a uniform way to avoid disparity in pay fixation across Public Sector banks and to say that draft guidelines generaOy appear in order.
2. However, before issue of these guidelines to all Public Sector Banks, it is desirable to; ensure that no decision is contradictory to established government policy and that none of these are violative of Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) or Ministry of. Defence (MoD) instructions on this subject. Therefore, adding a supporting clause below each decision clarifying- “These provisions have been drawn in terms of Gol, DOP&T’s OM/MoD/DFS lefter No dated “would be in the fitness of things. For example,-“Definition of ‘Pre-retirement Pay’ is as per MoD’s letter No. 1169/2008/D(Day/Service) dated 24th July, 2009”.

3. Further, the fact whether additional increments to ex-servicemen for acquiring graduation would also be available or not to those who are awarded ‘Certificate equivalent to Graduation’ by their previous employer also needs to be clarified. Proposed revised guidelines should also include a para clarifying the concept of ‘not reckoning ‘MSP’ and `X-pay’ for the purpose of pay fixation in respect of those Ex-servicemen who have retired from the armed forces and re-employees in PSBs on OF after 1.1.2006′.
4. The date; of implementation of these guidelines, prospective or retrospective and the mode of tackling effect of financial implications, if any also needs to be clarified.
5. Keeping in view above suggestions, kindly issue necessary guidelines at the earliest.
Yours faithfully,
(J.S. Phaugat) 
Under Secretary(Wel.)

  • Sir

    I would like to bring to your kind notice apathy of few exservicemen who retired from army prior to 1.1.2006 and re-employed after 1.1.2006, neither the got retirement benefits of 6th pay commission nor in re-fixaction inspite of clear order vide DOPT dated 5th April 2010 Para 3(v) which clearly states that their pay should be fixed notionaly according to 6th pay commission on re-employment. Every body knows such ex-servicemen are handful in public sector banks since their counterparts in other govt jobs have fixed their pay according to above dopt.

    so is there any dignitory who can listen their apathy and solve their problem?
