Three types of Consumer Price Index Numbers maintained by Labour Bureau

Calculation of CPI

The Labour Bureau has been compiling and maintaining three different series of Consumer Price Index numbers viz. (i) Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) on base 2001=100, (ii) Consumer Price Index Numbers for Agricultural Labourer on base 1986-87=100, (iii) Consumer Price Index Numbers for Rural Labourer on base 1986-87=100.
These index numbers measure a temporal change in prices of fixed basket of goods and services consumed by the target groups and are compiled on the basis of the prices of selected goods and services which are collected every week/month and the weights assigned to them. Weights to the selected items are assigned on the basis of the expenditure incurred on them as revealed by the surveys conducted for the purposes.
The index numbers for centre/state are compiled in several stages i.e. Sub-group, Group and General level. These centre/state level indices are then weighed to work out all-India indices.

The weights (Group / Sub-group wise) under  Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers on base 2001=100 and Consumer Price Index Numbers for Agricultural Labourer / Rural Labourer on base 1986-87=100 are given at Annexure.
The services like education, health/medicine, transportation are included in the compilation of all three Consumer Price Index Numbers. The details of the weights assigned to services like education, health/medicine, transportation, etc. are given in Annexure.

There is substantial increase in the weights attached to services like education, health/medicine, transportation in successive series of Consumer Price Index number for Industrial Workers which is revealed from the statement given below:
1. Consumer Price Index numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001=100
Percentage increase / decrease
Base 1982=100 Base 2001=100
Medical Care
Education, Recreation & Amusement
Transport & Communication
Personal Care & Effects

2.  For Consumer Price Index Numbers for Agricultural Labourer / Rural Labourer on base 1986-87=100, there was no separate sub-groups in respect of Education, Health / Medicine and Transportation in the previous series i.e. 1960-61=100. However, the weights assigned to them during the current series i.e. 1986-87=100 are as under:

Medical Care 4.38 4.23
Education, Recreation & Amusement 0.94 0.99
Transport & Communication 1.67 1.80
Personal Care & Effects 2.04 2.28

The Union Labour & Employment Minister Shri Mallikarjun Kharge gave this information in a written reply  on 27th August, 2012.

Tenure posting of officials in single handed & double handed post offices

No. 8-4/2005-INV                                                                                                                Dated: 05-12-2012


All Heads of Circles / Regional PMsG

Sub: Tenure posting of officials in single handed & double handed post offices- Preventive Vigilance Measure.

Sir/ Madam,

            Instructions were issued vide this office letter dated 22-09-2005 to the effect that officials who had been posted as SPM/ PA in a single handed or double handed post office irrespective of period of posting/ completion of tenure should not be posted back to the same office after a break. It was suggested that officials in single handed or double handed post office can have only one posting in the same single/ double handed PO during their service period. However, only in respect of double handed post offices the CPMG/ PMG were given the discretion to personally relax this provision in specific cases, if warranted by exceptional administrative exigencies. This was done as a preventive vigilance measure and to have better administrative management and control of single/ double handed offices.
2. Subsequently , power to relax the aforesaid stipulations vested with the Chie PMG/ Regional PMG in respect of double handed SOs, was extended in respect of single handed post offices also vide Directorate letter of even no. dated 12-01-2012.
3. It has now been decided that the aforesaid powers vested with the Chief PMG/ Regional PMG in respect of single handed and double handed post offices to consider an official, who had earlier served in the single / double handed office to be posted back to the same office or other single and double handed office in the Division, will henceforth be exercised by the Divisional Heads subject to the following conditions:
i) The Divisional Head will satisfy himself/ herself about the antecedents and character of the officials for whom the proviso are being relaxed; and a note to this effect will be given in the file.
ii) No official will be posted back to the same single handed/ double handed post offices on transfer / deputation or otherwise before a break of full tenure period.
iii) Information about cases of relaxation so exercised by the Divisional Head will be communicated to the Regional PMG/ Chief PMG as the case may be, in a half yearly statement.
4. This issues with the approval of Secretary (Posts).

                                                                                                Yours sincerely,   

                                                                                                ( Som Nath Chuchra )

Dear Sir,
Sub: Grant of Child Care Leave without any reason.
The undersigned is directed to refer to your letter No. 1/5(f) dated 14.11.2012 and to state that as per the extant instructions contained in Board’s letter dated 23.10.2008 and 12.12.2008, woman railway employees having minor children may be granted Child Care Leave by an authority competent to grant leave for a maximum period of two years (i.e.730 days) during their entire service for taking care of upto two children whether for rearing or to look after any of their needs like examination, sickness etc. and that Child Care Leave cannot be demanded as a matter of right.

Therefore, in order to enable the competent authority to decide on the application for CCL, reasons have to be mentioned and this condition cannot be dispensed with. Moreover, DOP&T has issued instructions in 
this regard which have been adopted in toto for the female railway employees. In the circumstances, Ministry of Railways also cannot unilaterally alter the purpose for which Child Care Leave is introduced to female railway employees.
In light of this, the demand is not feasible for acceptance.
Yours faithfully 
for Secretary, Railway Board.

5. In cases of conservative treatment, where there is no CGHS package rate, the above mentioned items are admissible – items wise at CGHS rates or as per AIIMS rates (if there is no CGHS rate) or as per actual (if there is no CGHS / AIIMS rate) for any item.

6. Package rates envisage up to a maximum duration of indoor treatment as follows:

Therefore, it is not possible to indicate a comprehensive list of items, which are not admissible. However, the following items are not admissible for the purpose of reimbursement under CGHS:
