How could I know my GPF account details at this site

Still there is no provision for checking of GPF account details online. You will get it yearly through your DDO. However regarding any missing credits or anomalies you can visit the Accountant General Office at Kiran Shankar Roy Road with your GPF A/c no.

Whether there is any provision for WB govt employee to have mutual transfer? If possible then pls tell me in which ground it will be possible? I ll remain grateful to you. Thank You. From Tuhin Mohanta, S.A.E, I & W Dte.

As far as my knowledge goes, there is no instance of mutual transfer in West Bengal Service Rules and also there is no Govt. order regarding the same. However two S.A.E.s can apply through proper channel to the Addl. Chief Engineer for mutual transfer.
Addl. Chief Engineer may issue transfer order if both of them have not served previously to their desired place of posting, at least during the preceding five years. If both the husband and wife are Govt. employees, effort should be made to keep them in the same place as far as practicable or in places where they may serve without being separated.

I am a MO (medical officer) posted at BPHC (block primary health centre)at Birbhum district from 01.06.2011. There are only TWO doctor’s quarters. There is another MO and a BMOH (block medical officer of health) residing in those two doctor’s quarters. I start residing in a spayer room of other MO with his permission and drawing HRA. I posted as vice of existing BMOH. In month of july, 2011, another MO take charge of BMOH in place of our existing-BMOH, as existing BMOH went for his higher study. New BMOH is from local area (15 km away from hospital). He does not want to take quarter and want to draw HRA; and he want to allot the ex-BMOH’s quarter to me. But I and other MO has no problem in sharing a quarter; and we want new BMOH stay with us in hospital premises. Also as far I know, BMOH must stay in hospital premises.
My question is: Q.1) Whether residential quarter is mandatory in West Bengal Govt service if quarter is available?, Q.2) Whether BMOH can allot EX-BMOH’s quarter in my name without my wish as I am posted in VICE of Ex-BMOH?. Q.3) Whether new BMOH can stay in his home 15 km away from hospital?

Q1. If a quarter is an ear marked quarter for BMOH, then the new BMOH must occupy his quarter. No MO or VICE can occupy the same until written order of the competent authority. Q2. No. He cannot. You have every right not to stay at BMOH quarter. You may opt for rented accommodation also within 8 km radius of your head quarter. Q3. Please go through the following rules:-WBSR – I, Rule 29
Headquarters terra definedThe headquarters of a Government employee shall be in such place as the Head of a Department may prescribe and are in the absence of any orders to the contrary, the station where the records of his office are kept.WBSR – I, Rule 29A
Obligation to stay at Head-quarterA Government employee should ordinarily reside at the Headquarters of the Station to which he is for the time being posted. He may, however, be permitted by the head of his office, for sufficient reasons, such as difficulties in securing accommodation at headquarters and for other good reasons, to reside outside his headquarters, provided that his normal official duties do not suffer thereby. In such cases, however, the Government employee concerned shall intimate in writing his place of residence to the head of his office, who may however, require him to stay at his headquarters at any time and for any period if it is considered necessary in public interest. P.S. You are also VICE of new BMOH.

Is there any rule or order in WB about the transfer policy for husband/ wife when both of them are working? husband is working in transferable govt service and wife is working in non transferable govt aided school.

No, there is no such govt. order. However the transfer policy may vary department wise. Department considers carefully such that husband and wife, when both of them are govt. employee, serve without being separated. Head of the department issues such type of transfer orders.

can I have treasury order for availing travelling concession on behalf of CL

While on leave an employee may avail travel concession once in a year.
As per WBSR Rule 167, Casual leave is not recognized as leave.
Hence travel concession is not generally granted in case of CL. It is applicable for EL/ HPL.
Do you want related TR Form? P.S. For Central Govt. Employees LTC is also applicable for CL.

Any immediate action/ plan of the Govt. are not known regarding the future of RNTCP staffs. Probably this will be continued for more phases.

Dear Sir, I am an assistant teacher of a High Mdrasah (H.S.). I have joined to this Madrasah on 26/08/2010, in Honours Post by MSC. Before this I was an assistant teacher of a High School in pass vacancy. There I joined on 29/09/2008 by SSC. Now I want to know (i) will my service continue from there ? (ii) can I get previous increment ? (iii) how G.P.F. will deduct though I have not paid from Aug’10 to July’2011 ? (iv) am I able to sit for next SSC exam. ?

Your service will be continued if you able to collect following documents from your past school by appropriate authority and submit the same to the new employer.
1. Work Experience Certificate.
2. No Objection Certificate.
3. Last Pay Certificate.
You are eligible to get previous increments accordingly. I think you do not have GPF A/c still now. This is a bad not to have GPF A/c for more than 1 year of service. It must be opened within a year and start subscription accordingly. So better you start your subscription at earliest, possibly from this month. If you already have a GPF A/c and you have intermittent subscription then the case is a bit complicated. Please let me know whether you have GPF A/c or not. So that I can assist you further. You can not appear for SSC within 3 years.
If your qualification is added then for the next level you can surely appear for the same. No problem.

Sir, I am a beneficiary under the west Bengal Heath Scheme 2009. Recently my wife treated at empanelled Nursing Home under the scheme as indoor patient. At the time of discharging the patient all dues including medicine have been paid to the N. home authority. But the Nursing Home Authority is not handing over the treatment charges bill and form “D” along with date wise break up according to rules No-12 para 3(e) of the said scheme for reimbursement of claim. I have requested them verbally in several times to follow the same properly, but they are ignoring it every time. Under the circumstances what shall I do? Plz. proper guidance is solicited in this respect.

As per Rule 14.1 of Agreement of West Bengal Health Scheme 2008, “All bills and papers related to the beneficiaries’ treatment shall be handed over in original along with the necessary counter signatures by the authorised persons.”
As per Rule 15.1, “If any dispute or difference of any kind whatsoever (the decision whereof is not herein otherwise provided for) shall arise between the Authority of the WBHS 2008 and the Hospital/ Diagnostic Centre upon or in relation to or in connection with or arising out of the Agreement, shall be referred to for arbitration by the Director of Medical Education, West Bengal, who shall give written award of his decision to the Parties. The decision of the Director of Medical Education, West Bengal shall be final and binding. The provisions of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (26 of 1996) shall apply to the arbitration proceedings. The venue of the arbitration proceedings shall be at Kolkata.” So just start a discussion with the Nursing Home authority that you are going to act as per the said rule and going to take legal action. Always keep received copy of your application as a proof.

Thank you for response. In this context your kind attention is being drawn that the Nursing Home authority is not handing over the final bills which should made according to the procedure mentioned in the Col No 12(claim and reimbursement…) para 3(e)of the same scheme as published in the Kolkata gazette on Sept.19,2008. The N. Home. Autho. has handed over an Invoice (Not Bill) as a “indoor treatment charges summery” only, no date wise break up of all the investigation charges, consultation fees etc, no necessary certificate are embossed as per norms therein clearly not only that no essentially certificate (in form “D”)is enclosed therewith which is necessary for submitting along with Form “C” to the Head of the Office and also treasury for reimbursement. After repeatedly request they are not motivated/ activated in this regard, I think, as they have got payment fully before discharge my patient so they have no responsibility to do it properly. As a result being a legal beneficiary of the scheme i am depriving and loosing economically for the callousness such type of empanelled N. Home under Govt. of W.B.H.S-2008 Please guide, where i shall get proper justice.

You can visit Medical Cell at Writers’ Buildings and state your sufferings. They may guide you for future action. West Bengal Health Scheme is no doubt a noble step of the Govt. However, as a whole, I am not satisfied with the understandings of the dealing assistants of the cases. You have to overcome lots of hurdles for reimbursement. Write application to the Nursing Home Authority and get a received copy. If they do not want to receive it, then mail it by post with A.D. Give reminder. Collect documents in favour of you. Do not be upset, you will get reimbursement someday definitely. It will take time.

I am an Asst. teacher of a state- aided school (appointed by SSC). I was on maternity leave from 03.01.2011.When the order enhancing the leave to 180 days by the state Govt dtd 14.02.2011 was passed, my school rejected my prayer for extension of the leave citing that this order does not cover us . subsequently my 135 days, as per earlier norms ended on 17th may and I resumed my duties on 18th may; subsequently the order dtd 3rd june 2011 was passed by WBBSE and when I again approached the school, they again rejected my petition saying that since i have joined, I am no longer eligible for the leave

I am a Typist-Copyist. Serving more than 18 years of West Bengal Govt. Service. My officers ask me if there is any GO to give me opportunity from TC to UD. Please Help me.

There is a G.O. for the Typists for changing Cadre to L.D. Clerk in the same pay scale, but not U.D. Post. However seniority will be lost in changing cadre. In this regard I personally suggest not to change cadre as service is more than 18 years. No monetary gain will be achieved; instead you may suffer a loss.

2. Is it mandatory for the person taking the EL to provide “I AGREE” from another staff, written on the EL form,
3. How many days prior to the leave should the EL form be submitted.

W.B. Form No. 2395 is the EL application form for Gazetted/ Non-Gazetted employee. Please see here. Leave cannot be claimed as of right. Leave sanctioning authority if satisfied and can make alternative arrangement for the person applied for leave, so that Govt. duty may not suffer, then leave is granted.

I am a lecturer in Govt. Polytechnic. My carrier advancement should under AICTE norms. The CAS is not awarded in due time though I fulfilled all the conditions. It is pending for several years Can I claim interest for that period. If yes what is rate of interest.

Interest will not be paid.

I have joined WBPSC in a PHC in 16th of May 2011.But still I haven’t received my salary for the last 15days of May. Whenever I enquired about it in my hospital office they say that allotment has not come. How can I get my pending salary at the earliest?

You will definitely get the salary before March 2012. So, have some more patience as the authority told about insufficient fund. I hope your pay bill in separate has already been submitted in due time to the Treasury from the authority.

May I get special leave to attend national/ international science conferences arranged by DAE or SOLID STATE IONICS for five to seven days?

As far as my knowledge goes, existing rules do not provide study leave/ special casual leave in such cases. However, departmental secretary/ head of the deptt. may grant special leave in this regard.

Can u pl let me know the latest order stating the conditions under which a state govt employee can apply for either a temp or a non ref adv from respective GPF account?

Here is a post which is written based on latest GO: GPF Rules.

I had sent the required documents through DI, Darjeeling for the RECAST of my pension vide memo no. 735/PE-11 DT. 11/04/11. However there has been no recast as such till date. Hence I just wanted to know the details of the same. My name is Krishna Pradhan, and my PPO no. is DJL/S/P/5609.

Dear Mr. Pradhan, if you let me know your date of birth i could give you your pension application status from this link. please find yourself in the link provided. Please call: Pension Payment Order (PPO) Processing Status Query @ 033-23371718 (Primary Cases).

Dear Mr. Mandal, there is no specific GO for the para teachers at present. i like to share this news for para teachers. As C.M. said, “So we have decided to bring all of them under the school education.”, then everything will be open and transparent.

The Govt. has amended the parents whose monthly income does not exceed Rs.3500/- they are entitled to beneficiary dependent members of the family of an employee, Kindly let me know whether the dependent unmarried sisters are also entitled to get the same benefit of the members of beneficiary dependent members of the family of an employee in connection with West Bengal Health Scheme, 2008. For availing the medical facility under WBHS.08 unmarried sisters shall be deemed to be dependent on the Govt. employee if they are normally residing with him their income from all sources does not exceed Rs.1500/-.Kindly confirm whether unmarried sisters are entitled to benefit of members of beneficiary dependent members of the scheme, as she has income 2500/- per month.
Samir Talukdar

In Notification No. 6722-F dated 09.07.2009, dependent member of the family of an employee is defined. As per Notification No. 10531-F(MED) dated 10.11.2010, monthly income of only parents, considered to be dependent is increased to Rs. 3500/-. Dependent Unmarried sister included as beneficiary. If monthly income is Rs. 2500/-, then she is independent.

Each year GO is published for arrear pay. This time the GO is to pay only 50% of arrear; this GO did not consider the exceptions, like as you said. It only says to pay 50% arrear now, “and the remaining 50% of the third instalment of arrear will be decided later.”

…related to condemnation of govt vehicles.

Here is the orders:
a) Revised guidelines determining regarding normal life of state government vehicles to be taken into consideration before condemnation and disposal vide Memo No. 5077-WT/TR/O/2M-12/2003 dated 16-11-2004.
b) Revised guidelines determining procedures for condemnation and disposal of state Government vehicles is issued in suppression of all previous orders vide Memo No. 5193-WT/TR/O/2M-12/2003 dated 24/29-11-2004.

If a govt. employee has got no promotion during his service life can he get higher grade pay in his all three CAS benefit i.e. 8 yrs, 16 yrs & 25 yrs. can he move to upper promotional scale.

On behalf of my wife I want to know about House Rent rules in West Bengal Health & family welfare department.
My wife working as a PHN (Gr.II) in Natabari Block Primary Health Centre, Cooch Behar Dist.
My question is:-
(1) The office establishment forcing to stay in quarter and deducted her HRA from the current month.
(2) She submitted a prayer for not to deduct her HRA reason for as far as her knowledge that in her head of the account there is not EARMARKED QUARTER FOR (PHN)
(3) But Office establishment could not respond her and deduct her HRA.
(4) She shown ROPA 2009 guideline that earmarked quarter is must to deduct but not respond.
So, I very much eager to know what is the latest guide in WBHEALTH for deduct HRA.
Is there any order to stop HRA deduction?
PLEASE sir, I need your guidance

What is the distance of her office and residence? Following guidelines are available from WBSR regarding obligation to stay in head quarter. WBSR – I, Rule 29
Headquarters terra defined The headquarters of a Government employee shall be in such place as the Head of a Department may prescribe and are in the absence of any orders to the contrary, the station where the records of his office are kept. WBSR – I, Rule 29A
Obligation to stay at Head-quarter A Government employee should ordinarily reside at the Headquarters of the Station to which he is for the time being posted. He may, however, be permitted by the head of his office, for sufficient reasons, such as difficulties in securing accommodation at headquarters and for other good reasons, to reside outside his headquarters, provided that his normal official duties do not suffer thereby. In such cases, however, the Government employee concerned shall intimate in writing his place of residence to the head of his office, who may however, require him to stay at his headquarters at any time and for any period if it is considered necessary in public interest.

But sir if the earmarked quarter is not present for the particular post (PHN-Gr-II)in this office head.
Then office will have any right to deduct her HRA from her salary?

If head of the office requires that the employee under his control stay at head quarter in the interest of public service then the employee have to obey the decision.
If there is no ear marked quarter for the particular post of the employee, he/ she can take private/ rented accommodation. In that case full HRA is admissible; there is no obligation to stay at Govt. accommodation.
There is no such order you asked for.

What is the system of departmental promotion of qualified group d employee of health department?

There is no such G.O. regarding promotion of qualified Gr. D employees. As usual 8-16-25 years benefit is admissible.

Pls. let me know about how much money a Govt. aided school can collect from a student during his/her admission.

As per rule 13(2) of “The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009″, No capitation fee during admission is allowed. It is a punishable offence and a fine up to ten times charged up on school.

They stay separately and the distance in between in aprox. 377 km. neither of them enjoys any accommodation provided or owned by the college/school authorities, universities or govt. authorities. my question is are they eligible to draw the full amount of HRA separately? Please also mention the G.O related.

As per G.O. No. 1691-F dated 23/02/2009, Rule 11, the ceiling of HRA to be drawn by husband and wife together is Rs. 6000/- per month. However, there is provision for prayer to draw HRA separately for the above case; let me know whether HRA together exceeds 6000/- or not, then the process may be discussed further at this forum.

As per WBSR, Study Leave may be granted on the following conditions:
a. For the purpose of definite advantage to Government in the interest of public and is related to sphere of his duties.
b. The Govt. employee should submit a report on the work done by him during the period of study leave.
c. The study leave should not be granted unless study/ training shall be of definite advantage from the point of view of public interest.
d. The said leave is admissible to the Govt. employee who has rendered not less than five years service.
e. The said leave is not admissible to the Govt. employee who will retire within three years of return from study leave. So, in your case, I think, you will not get Study Leave.

It has no effect with the Pensionary benefits as well.

I have a flat at premises No.52/A, Feeder Road, Belghoria, Kolkata-700056 under Kamarhati Municipality Ward No.17 Holding No.894. In respect of the above flat I had submitted a Mutation application for mutation of title/name to the Kamarhati Municipality more than a year ago with all the necessary documents. The application was processed in the Board meeting as well as recommended by the ward councillor. In spite of all this the municipality is with-holding my mutation for not paying a donation amount of Rs 12000/-,i.e. @1% of Deed value.
In the above context I wanted to know the specific provisions of Municipal law or any resolution adopted by the Municipal Board in this regard under which such demands can be made by the municipality. The municipality is stubbornly refusing to entertain my application for mutation without the receipt of the donation amount of over Rs.12000/-. In this regard I had also written to the Chief Minister, but the reply is still awaited.
A reply in this regard is requested from you at the earliest.Sender: Kanak Bhowmick.

Dear Sir, in 1988, DSE, WB sanctioned a post of Assistant Teacher with specific academic qualification of graduation with Geography as combination subject in Social Science group. Incumbent selected is a Graduate in B.Com with no combination subject as Geography. After that, he obtained spl hons in Accountancy. He was selected to the post and was allowed with hons. scale of pay w.e.f. his dt of appointment. DSE could find out the blunder in 2005 & ordered to withdraw his hons scale of pay. He complied with the order of DSE,WB in 2005,September. DI/S,SE, North 24 Pgs, in terms of the order of DSE, Wb, ordered the Teacher to pay back the overdrawn salary towards hons scale of pay. The Teacher filed a writ before the Hon’ble High Court, Calcutta for quashing the Orders of DSE,WB and DI/S,SE, North 24 Parganas whereupon The Court granted an order of Stay of operation of the said Orders and he was paid lacs of money in 2009 as salary under Hons. scale of pay w.e.f. 1998 under revised order of pay & allowances while the ground reality is that the school concerned got upgrade to X class High school where also no subject is taught as Accountancy. Thus, not only a huge amount of money is just drained of the Govt but also, due to having no teacher in Geography in school, students are suffering a lot, particularly of class IX,X. Govt. of west Bengal, particularly the Education Department may note that the WP No.17208(W) of 2007 with CPAN 291 of 2007 (Sudip Bose -VS-State of WB & Ors)is still to be contested appropriately for justice to the Order(s) of DSE,WB,and DI/S.SE, North 24 Pgs for the interest of huge wastage of Govt. Fund & school concerned.
