Kerala raises retirement age from 55 to 56

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Finance Minister K M Mani engaged himself in a
tight-rope walking exercise on Monday as he juggled Kerala’s development
agenda with a revenue deficit that has risen to worrisome levels. But the
biggest take-away from the budget for the politically sensitive state was
the decision to raise the age of retirement for state employees from 55 to
56 years.

Presenting the state budget 2012-13 amidst uproar from the Opposition
benches about the portion pertaining to pension age being leaked to the
media, Mani gave priority to infrastructure development projects. He made
his point with Kochi Metro Rail (Rs 150 crore), High Speed Rail Corridor (Rs
50 crore) and Vizhinjam International Transshipment terminal (Rs 224 crore).
He unfolded a slew of greenfield initiatives in high-tech farming such as
greenhouse (Rs 45 crore), rice bio-park (Rs 10 crore) and coconut bio-park
(Rs 15 crore).

The Finance Minister has proposed to mop up Rs 1,512 crore by taxing tobacco
products, liquor, motor vehicles and plastic bags. He announced a tax sop of
Rs 100 crore mainly for products in health and agriculture sector; the
allocation for various welfare schemes has been increased and asset
development fund for MLAs with Rs 705 crore has been instituted.

The estimated fiscal deficit for 2012-13 stood at Rs 10,727 cr (2.74 pc of
GDP). The revised revenue deficit for 2011-12 stood at Rs 5,658 crore while
the estimated budget deficit for the state for 2012-13 was pegged at Rs
3485.66 crore. In 2011-12 the total revenue receipts stood at Rs 39,401
crore while the expenditure was Rs 45,059 crore. For 2012-13, the budget has
estimated revenue to the tune of Rs 48,120 crore and expenditure at Rs
51,605 crore.

As soon as the budget session of the 13th Assembly began, Opposition Leader
VS Achuthanandan stood up alleging that the state budget was leaked prior to
the presentation in the Assembly and was published in a section of the
newspapers. Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and the rest of the Opposition immediately
joined in, shouting slogans and demanding that the House should adjourn and
discuss the issue.Speaker G Karthikeyan intervened, assuring the Opposition
that the matter would be looked into once the Finance Minister completed the
presentation of the budget. “If it is indeed there in the budget (report in
a section of media) then the House will examine it as per precedents set by
Parliament and the Kerala Assembly,” Karthikeyan said

iii) Our Memorandum No. IRTSA /Memo/11-2011 Date: 2-5-2011 - Reg: Grade Pay  of Tech. Supervisors (Senior Section Engineers & Junior Engineers) on Railways



Respected Sir,


1. We seek your benign intervention on the issue which awaits approval of
Ministry of Finance since long even after numerous representations by us and
a few references by the Ministry of Railways (Railway Board) – resulting in
serious injustice to Junior Engineers (JEs) & Senior Section Engineers (SSEs)
on the Railways – in respect of their Grade Pay after Sixth Pay Commission.




2. Recommendations of the Departmental Anomalies Committee and Priority
Committee of Ministry of Railways to the Ministry of Finance – made in 2009
& reiterated by MOR since then - for upgrading of Grade Pay of Junior
Engineers and Senior Section Engineers of Indian Railways - had not so far
been accepted by the Ministry of Finance Expenditure.



3. Sixth Pay Commission had created serious Anomalies which totally
disturbed horizontal parities and vertical relativities altogether (as shown
in the detailed Memorandums attached herewith).



4. The Pay Commission had totally ignored the duties and responsibilities of
the Technical Supervisors, towards safe and efficient running of Trains
through frontline supervision and management of production, repair,
maintenance and operation on the Indian Railways.



5. We are, therefore, submitting herewith, 2 Memoranda for your kind &
favourable consideration on the following issues – with a request to grant
following Grade Pays to JEs & SSEs on the Railways to restore the horizontal
parity, vertical relativity and in view of the higher entry qualifications,
longer period of training and higher nature of duties & responsibilities
shouldered

by Junior Engineers & Senior Section Engineers on the Railways:



i) Grant of Grade Pay of Rs.4800 in PB-2 to Junior Engineers (JEs) on the
Railways;



ii) Grant of Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-3 to Senior Section Engineers (SSEs)
on Railways.

Hoping for an early favourable decision, thanking you, with Kind regards,




Encls:

i) Memorandum reg Grade Pay of JEs on Railways



ii) Memorandum reg Grade Pay SSEs on Railways



iii) Six Annexure (I to VI)



Yours’ faithfully,

Harchandan Singh,

General Secretary, IRTSA



Copy for information & favourable action to:

i) Member Staff, Railway Board, Rail Bhavan, New Delhi

ii) Secretary (Establishment), Railway Board, Rail Bhavan, New Delhi
