Corporate Governance Initiatives Revamp of the process of selection and appointment of Independent Directors currently underway.

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) A mutually negotiated agreement between the management of the CPSEs and the Government of India/ Holding CPSEs. Dynamic Exercise and Balanced Score Card approach - Financial and Non Financial areas included. Coverage of CPSEs steadily increasing. Commitment & Assistance from Government included Efforts to make MoUs more flexible and incorporate national/international benchmarks and encourage globalization. 18
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) & Sustainability DPE issued the first Guidelines on CSR in April 20 10. Revised DPE guidelines on CSR & Sustainability were effective from April 2013. DPE guidelines have ceased to exist after CSR Rules notified by Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) under Section 135 of Companies Act, 2013 came into effect on 1st April, 2014. CSR Rules are applicable to all companies including CPSE s. Several CPSEs have demanded that DPE should also issue guidelines on CSR & Sustainability within the overall mandate of the Companies Act, 2013. DPE drafted guidelines for CPSEs to supplement CSR Rules. These are under consideration of MCA. 19
Policy on pay scales of Executives & wages of Workmen DPE issues guidelines and renders advice to Ministries / Departments / CPSEs in matters of pay revision of executives and wage settlement of workmen of CPSEs. 97% employees are on Industrial DA pattern of pay scales. Rest are on Central DA pattern of pay scales. 2007 pay revision (for employees on IDA pattern of pay scales) based on the recommendations of the 2nd PRC is in vogue w.e.f. 01.01.2007. Adoption of 2007 pay scales is subject to a CPSE’s ability to afford and sustain the burden of pay revision without budgetary support from Govt. Most CPSEs on IDA pattern pay scales have adopted the 2007 pay scales while 47 CPSEs due to non-affordability are still in 1997 / 1992 / 1987 pay scales. 20
CDA pattern of pay scales (based on Govt’s approval of 6th CPC Report) extended to CPSEs w.e.f. 01.01.2006. Adoption of revised pay scales also based on affordability criterion. Management of CPSEs negotiate the wage structure for the workmen with Trade Unions / Associations. DPE only issues broad guidelines. An important aspect of wage negotiation is to ensure that wage revision for workmen does not come in conflict with the pay revision of executives and non– unionised supervisors. The periodicity of wage settlement (7th Round) for the workmen in CPSEs is for 10 / 5 years. The last wage revision was from 01.01.2012 for five years. 21
