Highlights of Cabinet Decisions on 7th CPC Recommendation

 Press Information Bureau 
Government of India
Cabinet

Cabinet Approves Implementation of the Recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission 

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) on pay and pensionary benefits.   It will come into effect from 01.01.2016.

In the past, the employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations at the time of 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of 6th CPC.  However, this time, 7th CPC recommendations are being implemented within 6 months from the due date.

The Cabinet has also decided that arrears of pay and pensionary benefits will be paid during the current financial year (2016-17) itself, unlike in the past when parts of arrears were paid in the next financial year. 

The recommendations will benefit over 1 crore employees. This includes over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.

Highlights:

1.            The present system of Pay Bands and Grade Pay has been dispensed with and a new Pay Matrix as recommended by the Commission has been approved. The status of the employee, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the Pay Matrix. Separate Pay Matrices have been drawn up for Civilians, Defence Personnel and for Military Nursing Service. The principle and rationale behind these matrices are the same.

2.            All existing levels have been subsumed in the new structure; no new levels have been introduced nor has any level been dispensed with. Index of Rationalisation has been approved for arriving at minimum pay in each Level of the Pay Matrix depending upon the increasing role, responsibility and accountability at each step in the hierarchy.

3.            The minimum pay has been increased from Rs.  7000 to 18000 p.m.  Starting salary of a newly recruited employee at lowest level will now be Rs.  18000 whereas for a freshly recruited Class I officer, it will be Rs.  56100.  This reflects a compression ratio of 1:3.12 signifying that pay of a Class I officer on direct recruitment will be three times the pay of an entrant at lowest level.

4.            For the purpose of revision of pay and pension, a fitment factor of 2.57 will be applied across all Levels in the Pay Matrices.


5.            Rate of increment has been retained at 3 %. This will benefit the employees in future on account of higher basic pay as the annual increments that they earn in future will be 2.57 times than at present.

6.            The Cabinet approved further improvements in the Defence Pay Matrix by enhancing Index of Rationalisation for Level 13A (Brigadier) and providing for additional stages in Level 12A (Lieutenant Colonel), 13 (Colonel) and 13A (Brigadier) in order to bring parity with Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) counterparts at the maximum of the respective Levels.

7.            Some other decisions impacting the employees including Defence & Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel include :

·               Gratuity ceiling enhanced from Rs.  10 to 20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity will increase by 25 % whenever DA rises by 50 %.
·               A common regime for payment of Ex-gratia lump sum compensation for civil and defence forces personnel payable to Next of Kin with the existing rates enhanced from Rs. 10-20 lakh to 25-45 lakh for different categories.
·               Rates of Military Service Pay revised from Rs.  1000, 2000, 4200 & 6000 to 3600, 5200, 10800 & 15500 respectively for various categories of Defence Forces personnel.
·               Terminal gratuity equivalent of 10.5 months of reckonable emoluments for Short Service Commissioned Officers who will be allowed to exit Armed Forces any time between 7 and 10 years of service.
·               Hospital Leave, Special Disability Leave and Sick Leave subsumed into a composite new Leave named ‘Work Related Illness and Injury Leave’ (WRIIL). Full pay and allowances will be granted to all employees during the entire period of hospitalization on account of WRIIL.

8.            The Cabinet also approved the recommendation of the Commission to enhance the ceiling of House Building Advance from Rs.  7.50 lakh to 25 lakh. In order to ensure that no hardship is caused to employees, four interest free advances namely Advances for Medical Treatment, TA on tour/transfer, TA for family of deceased employees and LTC have been retained. All other interest free advances have been abolished.

9.            The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.

10.        The general recommendations of the Commission on pension and related benefits have been approved by the Cabinet. Both the options recommended by the Commission as regards pension revision have been accepted subject to feasibility of their implementation. Revision of pension using the second option based on fitment factor of 2.57 shall be implemented immediately. A Committee is being constituted to address the implementation issues anticipated in the first formulation. The first formulation may be made applicable if its implementation is found feasible after examination by proposed Committee which is to submit its Report within 4 months.

11.        The Commission examined a total of 196 existing Allowances and, by way of rationalization, recommended abolition of 51 Allowances and subsuming of 37 Allowances. Given the significant changes in the existing provisions for Allowances which may have wide ranging implications, the Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances.  The Committee will complete its work in a time bound manner and submit its reports within a period of 4 months. Till a final decision, all existing Allowances will continue to be paid at the existing rates.

12.        The Cabinet also decided to constitute two separate Committees (i) to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of National Pension System (NPS) and (ii) to look into anomalies likely to arise out of implementation of the Commission’s Report.

13.        Apart from the pay, pension and other recommendations approved by the Cabinet, it was decided that the concerned Ministries may examine the issues that are administrative in nature, individual post/ cadre specific and issues in which the Commission has not been able to arrive at a consensus.

14.        As estimated by the 7th CPC, the additional financial impact on account of implementation of all its recommendations in 2016-17 will be Rs. 1,02,100 crore. There will be an additional implication of Rs. 12,133 crore on account of payments of arrears of pay and pension for two months of 2015-16.

Brother,

Sub: 7th CPC Recommendations – reg.

Cabinet’s decision on minimum wage is totally disappointing as no improvement has been made. Equally in multiplier factor, there is no improvement.

As already decided, the JCM constituent organizations will be compelled to go on strike.

NJCA will meet very soon (either today or tomorrow) to take stock of the situation and issue directions.

Yours fraternally,

Dr. Raghavaiah further said that as already decided by the NJCA, Railway employees will go on strike from 6:00 AM of 11th July 2016.

7th Pay Commission – Cabinet Approves 23.6% Overall Pay Hike

7th Pay Commission – Cabinet Approves 23.6% Overall Pay Hike

The Cabinet on Wednesday approved a 23.6 per cent increase in government employees’ overall pay – basic pay plus allowances – as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

There were reports yesterday that the increase would be higher than what the Commission recommended, but that didn’t happen.

The Pay Commission’s recommendations are to be implemented retroactively, from January 1, 2016. The increase in the basic pay is 14.27 per cent and with the hike proposed in allowances, the rise in remunerations comes to 23.6 per cent. The pay hike will benefit 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners .

It’s estimated that the implementation of the new pay scales will put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore annually on the exchequer. That comes to nearly 0.7 per cent of the GDP.

While the 2016-17 budget fiscal didn’t provide an explicit provision for implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, the government had then said that the once-in-a-decade pay hike for government employees has been built in as interim allocation for different ministries. That interim allocation amounts to Rs 70,000 crore

7th CPC News : Minimum Pay could be as high as 20000, 21000, 23500 & 24000

7th CPC News : Minimum Pay could be as high as 20000, 21000, 23500 & 24000

Government likely to give its nod to Seventh Pay Commission Recommendations Tomorrow

According to information, the central cabinet is very likely to give its approval to the recommendations made by the Seventh Pay Commission, during its meeting to be held on June 29.

Finally, after a long wait, there will be some official developments in the much-delayed issue of pay revisions for Central Government employees.

For the past few weeks, there were multiple reports and speculations about the pay revisions. This has also created massive confusion among the employees. With the Seventh Pay Commission recommending a minimum basic pay of Rs.18,000, unconfirmed reports claim that it could be as high as Rs.20,000, 21,000, 23,500, or even Rs.24,000.

Also rampant are false reports on the Fitment Factor calculation methods that are used for revising the salaries. To put an end to this never-ending series of rumours and speculations, official news is expected tomorrow on the developments regarding the Seventh Pay Commission.

It has to be mentioned that a high-level committee, created under the leadership of PK Sinha, has submitted its report to the central government. The Ministry of Finance will choose its course of action based on the recommendations of the report.

All the central government workers union, under the common name of NJCA, have announced nationwide indefinite strike from 11.07.2016 onwards. Also part of this association are the Railway workers’ unions.

Here are some of the announcements that created great expectations among the Central Government employees –

Implementation of 7th CPC : Finance Ministry prepared a Cabinet note based on ECoS Report

Implementation of 7th CPC : Finance Ministry prepared a Cabinet note based on ECoS report – AIDTOA

Based on the ECoS report, the Finance Ministry may be preparing a Cabinet note and the VII CPC issue may come up for approval by the Cabinet as early as June 29.

GOVT SHOULD NOT TAKE THE CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & OFFICERS FOR A RIDE.
CONFRONTATION WILL BECOME INEVITABLE IF UNILATERAL ORDERS ARE ISSUED

It seems that Govt. is not in favour of a negotiated settlement on the 7th CPC related issues. Based on the ECoS report, the Finance Ministry may be preparing a Cabinet note and the issue may come up for approval by the Cabinet as early as June 29.

The Seventh CPC report was submitted on 19th November 2015 after a delay of about 3 months. The Government especially the Finance Minister had assured that the final decision over the report will be taken within 4 months. On 19th June 2016, the delay has crossed seven months. Till date the Govt. has not come forward for a negotiated settlement. Instead, Empowered Committee of Secretaries (ECoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary conducted a meeting with the staff side on 1st March 2016. In the meeting Govt. did not disclose its mind on any of the demands raised by the staff Side in the charter of demands submitted to Govt. Staff Side explained the justification for each demand but official side didn’t make any comment, either positive or negative. The concluding paragraph of the minutes of the meeting reads as follows:

“After hearing the participants, Cabinet Secretary observed that the deliberations have helped ECoS in understanding the major concerns of the staff side and said that all issues have been taken note of. He assured that fair consideration will be given to all points brought out by JCM before taking final views. He further stated that the ECoS needs to examine the Report of the Commission in entirety as well as the issues raised by JCM in consultation with all other stake holders. As such, it may take some time to take a final call on the recommendations of the Commission.”

It may be seen that, neither did the Govt. side made any commitment on any demands, nor did they indicate in the minutes that further discussion will be held with the staff side to arrive at a negotiated settlement on each demands. It seems that the Govt. is moving ahead to issue unilateral orders taking the staff side for a ride.

The JCM staff side Secretary, in his letter dated 2nd May 2016, addressed to Cabinet Secretary, has made the stand of the staff side clear, without any ambiguity. The letter reads as follows:

“I have been directed to draw your attention towards minutes of the Standing Committee of National Council JCM held on 7th May 2008 and our rejoinder submitted to Govt. in the matter of Report of 6th CPC.

You will kindly find that it was not only a general discussion, but also official side explained their views on each and every issue.

I would therefore request your good self to kindly arrange for similar type of meeting for bi-lateral settlement on each of the issues raised by the staff side, NC/JCM before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries.”

Thus the picture is clear now. The Government, it seems, has a hidden agenda to take the staff side for granted without giving any further opportunity for a negotiated settlement. The staff side on the other hand has taken a position that if unilateral orders are issued, without taking the staff side into confidence, the NJCA shall go ahead with the indefinite strike from 11th July 2016 as already informed to the Govt.

The coming days are crucial. If the Govt. adopts delaying tactics or issue unilateral orders rejecting our demands, then confrontation shall become inevitable. The stand taken by the then Nehru Govt. that “Pay Commission report is an award and is not negotiable” has resulted in the historic indefinite strike of 1960, which commenced on July 11th midnight.

Central Government Employees and Officers comprising Railways, Defence, Postal and other Central Government departments are demanding modification in the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commissions including minimum wage and fitment formula. Other demands are scrapping of New Contributory Pension Scheme, No FDI in Railways and Defence, filling up of vacancies, No outsourcing, downsizing, contractorisation and corporatisation etc.

The NJCA & CCGGOO had already given strike notice to Government. As the Government is not ready for a negotiated settlement, the Central Government employees and Officers have to intensify the campaign and preparations and make the strike a total success.

About 33 lakhs Central Government Employees and Officers will participate in the strike. 40 lakhs Central Government Pensioners have declared their solidarity with the strike. Central Trade Unions had also extended their full support. State Government Employees Federations have cautioned the Central Government that they will also be compelled to join the strike if Government refuses to settle the demands relating to 7th CPC recommendations as majority of the state Governments are implementing the Central pay parity to their employees also.

On the one hand NJCA & CCGGOO are fighting for the cause of Central Government Employees and Officers and on the other hand rumour mongers are spreading false news through social media. Rumour mongers are coming out daily with different kind of news and pay scales about 7th Pay Commission. Please don’t believe rumour mongers on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media sources.

There had been no meaningful discussions with the NJCA & CCGGOO so far. The computation of Minimum wage by the 7th CPC deserves to be rejected as the commission has, in a bid to suppress the entitlement doctored the formula itself. The wages of an MTS in civil service, who is a group C employee cannot be less than Rs 26000 on the basis of the formula evolved in 1957 to which the Government is a party. There cannot therefore be any question of reduction in the quantum of minimum wage.

The NPS, which the Government introduced for those joined after 1.1.2004 in Government service has to be construed as a fraud perpetuated and deserves to be abandoned. There cannot be two classes of civil servants in the country; one making contribution but still not getting any assured pension and the other entitled for a statutory defined pension without any contribution. Those who are covered by the NPS in Central Civil Service are now more than 40% of the total personnel. The Government must be bold enough to address this issue.

It is high time, that the Government comes forward, hold meaningful and fruitful discussion with NJCA & CCGGOO and settle the Charter of demands. The continued procrastination is a sure step to confrontation and the Central government employees in the Country will certainly commence the strike action from 11.7.2016.

The entire civil services, which include the Railways, Postal, Defence and all other services of the Government of India, will come to a grinding halt on 11.7.2016.

The Cabinet is likely to take up Seventh Pay Commission Recommendations for Government Employees on June 29.

Cabinet May Decide On 7th Pay Commission On Wednesday

The Cabinet is likely to take up Seventh Pay Commission Recommendations for Government Employees on June 29.

Implementation of new pay scales recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore on the exchequer annually.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had in his Budget for 2016-17 provisioned Rs 70,000 crore towards Seventh Pay Commission awards, which is around 60 per cent of the incremental expenditure on salaries.

The Pay Commission’s recommendations are due from January 1, 2016.

The central government constitutes the pay commission every 10 years to revise the pay scales of its employees. The Commission was set up by the UPA government in February 2014 to revise remuneration of about 48 lakh central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.

7th Pay Commission: Lower Rank Employees to get Highest Percentage Salary Hike

7th Pay Commission: Lower Rank Employees to get Highest Percentage Salary Hike

In a populist move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government is likely to pay highest percentage of salary hike to the lower rank government employees with the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

New Delhi, June 24: Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government is likely to pay highest percentage of salary hike to the lower rank government employees with the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has reportedly asked Cabinet Secretary Pradeep Kumar Sinha led Empowered Committee of Secretaries, that is examining the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, to increase the pay of lower grade employees.

The PMO told the Empowered Committee that the salaries of employees in the lower ranks should rise by the highest percentage, reported The Sen Times. The government decided to give highest percentage salary hike to bottom grades employees and maintain parity of incomes between mid-level tier officers and the bottom grade employees.

Notably, all pay commissions in the past had not only recommended highest percentage of salary hike for top central government officials but also considered the disparity ratio between its highest and lowest paid employees. The ration of highest and lowest paid employees was about 1:12 in 2006.

The 7th Pay Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, had originally proposed hike of 14.27 in basic pay, 23.55 per cent in salary, allowances and pensions. The Empowered Committee of Secretaries has reportedly recommended a whopping 30 per cent hike in government employees’s salary, making the minimum amount Rs 23,500 and the maximum to Rs 3,25,000.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries will submit its final report later this month and the Cabinet will take final call on the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in July. 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners will be benefited from the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission.

How did Media Arrive the 7th CPC Minimum Pay as Rs.23400?

How did Media Arrive the 7th CPC Minimum Pay as Rs.23400?

For the past few days some News Agencies belongs to TV networks are blabbering about 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Implementation.

They repeatedly claimed that Empowered Committee recommends 30% Increase in minimum wage. Thus Minimum Pay will be increased from 18000 to 23400 and highest pay will be increased from 250000 to 325000.

They actually exposing their ignorance by saying 30% increase will increase the Minimum Pay to 23400/-

The 7th CP recommended 14.29 % increase in minimum Pay

The Minimum Pay in Sixth CPC = 7000
Total DA as on 1.1.2016 125% = 8750
Total Pay = 15750
Minimum Pay Recommended by 7th CPC = 18000
Increase Over Sixth CPC Pay = 14.29%

If the Cabinet Committee decides to increase 30% , The Minimum Pay will be Rs. 20475. Rounding of to 1000 may take it to Rs.21000.

How are Some familiar and Established news Media telling that 30% increase will take the Minimum Wage to Rs.23400?

Without knowing the fundamentals of fixing Minimum Pay, they simply calculated 30% increase over Rs.18000 (which already has 14.29% inbuilt increase) and predicted Rs.23400 will be the Minimum Wage. This false news created buss among cg employees. Now everybody talking about Rs.23400 as Minimum Pay.

The NCJCM demanded to fix Rs.26000 as Minimum Wage according to Dr. Akroyd Formula based on the retail prices as on 1.1.2014. This is 65% increase over sixth CPC Minimum Wage +125% DA (7000+8750=15750).

If the government decide to increase the Minimum Wage 30% level, then the Minimum Pay will be Rs.21000 and Fitment factor will be fixed at 3.0.

7th Pay Commission – Recommendation for more Leave and Holidays

7th Pay Commission – Recommendation for more Leave and Holidays

The following paragraphs bring out, the different kinds of holidays and leave admissible, demands received (if any) and views of the 7th Pay Commission on each one of them.

7th Pay Commission – Recommendation for more Leave and Holidays – Presently Central Government offices observe a five-day week which results in 104 holidays every year on account of weekends.

Presently Central Government offices observe a five-day week which results in 104 holidays every year on account of weekends. In addition, there are three National Holidays, fourteen Gazetted Holidays and two Restricted Holidays. Further, civilian government employees are entitled to 8 days’ Casual Leave, 20 days’ Half Pay Leave (commutable to Medical Leave) and 30 days’ Earned Leave. Besides the above, quite a few other types of leave are admissible.

The following paragraphs bring out, the different kinds of holidays and leave admissible, demands received (if any) and views of the 7th Pay Commission on each one of them. Unless otherwise stated, the existing terms and conditions regulating these holidays and leave shall remain unchanged.

Casual Leave (CL)

Casual Leave is granted to enable a government servant to attend to sudden/ unforeseen needs / tasks. Presently 8 days CL is normally granted to a Central Government employee per calendar year. The number goes up to 10 days for Industrial Workers, 20 days for Defence Officers and 30 days for Defence PBORs. Certain other categories of staff, particularly in the Railways, are granted CL ranging from 11 to 13 days in a year. Demands have been made to increase the number of CL to 15 days for Industrial Workers and 12 days for other employees. CAPFs have also sought parity with defence forces in matters of Casual Leave.

Child Adoption Leave

This leave is granted to female employees, with fewer than two surviving children on valid adoption of a child below the age of one year, for a period of 135 days immediately after the date of valid adoption.

Commuted Leave

Presently, Commuted Leave not exceeding half the amount of half-pay leave due can be taken on medical certificate. A demands have been made to do away with the need for medical certificate.

Child Care Leave (CCL) 

Child Care Leave (CCL) is granted to women employees for a maximum period of two years (i.e., 730 days) during their entire service for taking care of their minor children (up to eighteen years of age). There are several demands relating to CCL which include converting the same into “family care” leave, extending the facility to male parents and many representations stressing that it should be extended at least to single male parents. Suggestions have also been received that in cases where the child is differently abled, the clause stipulating that the child should be minor, should be done away with. Single mothers have highlighted their unique problems and requested the Commission for liberalising the grant of CCL. Interestingly, representations have also been made for discontinuance of the CCL, primarily on the grounds that it disrupts office working and also because it promotes gender discrimination.

Earned Leave (EL) or Leave on Average Pay (LAP)

Presently 30 days EL per annum is granted to Civilian employees and 60 days to Defence personnel. EL can be accumulated up to 300 days in addition to the number of days for which encashment has been allowed along with LTC. Suggestions have been made to increase the accumulation to 450 days, allow encashment of 50 percent of the accumulated EL after 20 years of service and delink encashment of leave from LTC.

Paternity Leave

Presently, a male employee with less than two surviving children may be granted Paternity Leave for a period of 15 days during the confinement of his wife, up to 15 days before or six months from the date of delivery of child. Paternity leave may also be granted to a government servant with less than two surviving children on valid adoption of a child below the age of one year, within a period of 6 months from the date of valid adoption. There are demands to increase the period to 30 days.

Maternity Leave

Maternity leave is granted to women government employees–up to 180 days for pregnancy and 45 days in the entire service for miscarriage/abortion. Maternity leave can be combined with any other leave upto two years without medical certificate. The 7th pay Commission has received representations for enhancement of Maternity leave to 240 days with full pay and further 120 days with half pay.

It is noted that Maternity Leave was raised from 135 days to 180 days and ‘period in continuation’ raised from 1 year to 2 years by the VI CPC. No further increase is warranted. Status quo is recommended.

Special Disability Leave

 It is admissible to civilian employees when disabled by injury intentionally or accidentally inflicted or caused by or in consequence of the due performance of official duties or in consequence of official position held. Full pay is admissible for the first 120 days and half pay thereafter. The leave may be combined with any other kind of leave due and admissible, provided the total period of leave does not exceed 24 months.

There are demands to remove the ceiling limit of 24 months–the duration of leave may be left to the discretion of doctor and full pay paid for the entire period.

Here’s how the 7th Pay Commission can Affect your Pay, most likely from August 2016!

Here’s how the 7th Pay Commission can Affect your Pay, most likely from August 2016!

The 7th pay commission has everything to make a central government employee happy and satisfied! The Commission is most likely to decide on a 30% hike on the basic pay. The minimum basic monthly salary recommended by the Commission was Rs 18000 and a 30% hike will make it to Rs 23500!

The 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice AK Mathur (Vivek Rae, retired IAS Officer; Rathin Roy, economist and Meena Agarwal, Secretary of the Commission are some of the other members of the Commission) had submitted its report to the Finance Minister earlier this year in the month of January. The Commission had suggested several recommendations like 23.55% increase in the pay and allowance, 24% hike for pensioners and OROP (One Rank One Pension) for central government employees and paramilitary personnel.

The exact decision of the Commission is impending. The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (13 member secretary level Committee to review the recommendation of the Pay Commission) is likely to make comparisons between the recommendations of the 7th pay commission and the comments from various stakeholders on the 7th Pay Commission. An Implementation Cell has been created in the Finance Ministry to work as the Secretariat of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries.

A Layman’s Guide to Pay Commission

Pay Commission has been set up by the Government of India, since Independence. The Commission is involved in giving recommendations regarding the salary structure of the Central government employees working in the civil and military divisions. Till date seven pay commissions have been set up for the same purpose.

The announcement for the 7th pay Commission was made on 04 February 2014. While Justice AK Mathur was the head of the Commission, other notable members included Vivek Rae, Dr. Rathin Roy and Meena Agarwal.

What will be the lowest and highest basic salary under 7th Pay Commission?

Under 7th Pay Commission the lowest and highest basic salary are Rs 18000 and Rs 250000, respectively. However the 30% hike will round the figures to Rs 23500 and Rs 325000 respectively. The figures reveal the drastic difference between the salary structure of the 7th Pay Commission with that of the 6th Pay Commission.

When is it likely to be implemented?

As mentioned above, the decision regarding implementation of the 30% hike is impending. However as per the latest reports it is likely to be implemented in August 2016.

What are the other salient features of the 7th Pay Commission?

* Annual increment has been hiked to 3%.

* HRA has been increased to 27%, 18% and 9%, if the DA crosses 50%; and further revision to 30%, 20% and 10%, when DA crosses 100%.

* Introduction of Health Insurance Scheme replacing the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS).

* Introduction of OROP pension scheme for defence personnel

* Child Care Leave to be granted at 100% of salary for first 365 days and at 80% for next 365 days. CCL to be granted for single male parents.

The 7th Pay Commission is going to benefit near about 45 lakh Central government employees and almost 52 lakh pensioners.

Most Important Demand is that of the CG Employees is the Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula – P.S.Prasad

Most Important Demand is that of the CG Employees is the Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula – P.S.Prasad

“The formal announcement by the of the 7th CPC acceptance is likely to be made by the Government just before the 11th July strike by the CG employees indicating the actual minimum wage and fitment formula.”

7th CPC latest

Comrades,

The empowered committee of Secretaries headed by the Cabinet Secretary had discussion from past five months on the charter of demands raised by the staff side, The finance ministry is working out the financial implications arising out of the improved recommendations of the 7th CPC especially on the minimum wage and fitment formula being improved, granting two increment on promotion and having annual increment on 1st Jan and 1st July instead of just on 1st July. This will benefit a lot of persons on promotion. The other aspect is considering grant of advances, which the 7th CPC has recommended for abolition.

The formal announcement by the of the 7th CPC acceptance is likely to be made by the Government just before the 11th July strike by the CG employees indicating the actual minimum wage and fitment formula.

The cabinet Secretary will present the view of the empowered committee of Secretaries before the Union Cabinet meeting based upon the principle adopted in actual calculation of the minimum wage and fitment formula. The 7th CPC had adopted the Dr Aykroyd formula minimum wage is calculated on the basis of the 15th ILC norms. But erred in many aspects for example the average of prices of last 12 months was taken, The housing weight age , education weight age etc . The prices of essential items are rising from past many years, even in last six months the retail inflation is rising above 5.4%.

Secondly the prices quoted by the GOVERNMENT OF INDIA MINISTRY OF LABOUR & EMPLOYMENT LABOUR BUREAU CLEREMONV, SHIMLAHttp://Labourbureaunew.Gov.In/ , the Director of Economic & statics , Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi & the retail market prices are varying .

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the LABOUR & EMPLOYMENT LABOUR BUREAU taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 21,000 / and fitment formula works to 3.00. This will result in 34% wage hike without allowances.

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the Director of Economic & statics , Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 23,000 / and fitment formula works to 3.30. This will result in 50% wage hike without allowances.

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the retail market taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 28,000 / and fitment formula works to 4.00. This will result in 70% wage hike without allowances.

The most important demand is that of the CG employees is the minimum wage and fitment formula.

The Staff side had demand of minimum wage of Rs 26000/- & fitment formula of 3.71. Against this the 7th CPC had recommended minimum wage of Rs 18000/- & fitment formula of 2.57. The 7th CPC recommendations has provided only at 14% wage hike at Group “C” level it is only ranging from Rs 2240/- to Rs 3500/- increase per month, and at Group “B” level ranging from Rs 4000/- to Rs 6500/- increase per month. After deductions & income tax the net increase will be just from Rs 500/- to Rs 3000/- only.

This increase is lowest by any pay commission, hence vast changes are required as the prices of essential commodities have gone up and also the inflation rate has gone up.

Comrades it is the time to struggle, we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we should get at least 50 % wage hike without allowances, as allowances are not taken into pension benefit.

Only struggle will get us benefit. Please don’t believe on rumours. Now it is now or never.

Comradely yours

(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

Indefinite Strike Called by NJCA from July 11th will play a vital role to determine the fate of the 7th Pay Commission

Indefinite Strike Called by NJCA from July 11th will play a vital role to determine the fate of the 7th Pay Commission

Govt has to decide on 7th Pay Commission before Indefinite Strike

The Indefinite Strike Called by National Joint Council of Action from July 11th will play a vital role to determine the fate of the 7th Pay Commission. The amount of pressure exerted on the Government through this agitation may change the Govt Views over Pay Commission.

It is evident that the present NDA Government is not in favour of Bapus. And the Public opinion about Government Employee’s attitude and work Culture is too not in favour of CG Employees. So it is now the unity among Central Staffs and their undisputed faith over Unions, Staff Associations and Federations only will get them expected results.

At this juncture, somehow, the call for Indefinite Strike is a timely decision taken by NJCA and it is the only weapon, through which the powerless Central Staffs can intimidate the Government to do Justice for them in respect of Pay Revision and Improving Service Conditions.

That is why Federations are keep on telling the CG Staffs to be prepared for Indefinite Strike. They are, however, alarming the affiliated unions to be vigilant about the rumors about 7th Pay Commission. They informed that Social Media and Some News Agencies are publishing the false news which may deteriorate the Spirit of Govt Servants.

The Success rate of agitation Programs to be conducted by NJCA in order to prepare the Central Government Employees for Indefinite Strike will be the Pressure indicator to the Central Government to take decisions on 7th CPC issues and Pending demands prior to the Strike.

The Indefinite Strike is a well-defined and calculated move by NJCA to give the pressure to the Central Government as the Govt is reluctant to address the issues of CG Staffs and implement the 7th CPC recommendations.

It is inevitable to the Government to take decision on 7th Pay Commission before the commencement of Indefinite Strike.

Government Doctors Meet Arun Jaitley, Demand Review of 7th Pay Commission Recommendations

New Delhi: Government doctors have met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and demanded revision of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Representatives of the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA) and JACSDO (Joint Action Council of Service Doctor Organisation) met Mr Jaitley on Monday and put forward their demands saying, the recommendations are “discriminating to doctors”.

“The Minister listened to our issues patiently and attentively. He was appraised especially for NPA issue. He showed his concern about our salary being relatively reduced by 7 CPC.

“He assured us that our representation is being directed to Secretary Expenditure for re-evaluation. He also assured, if any concern still remains pending in the matter of NPA (and other issues), it shall be scrutinised and considered by forthcoming ‘Anomalies Committee’ which shall be appointed hereafter,” said FORDA in a statement issued on Tuesday.

FORDA and JACSDO have strongly been opposing the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and have written to the Prime Minister and Health Minister.

“When the 7th CPC was constituted we doctors were very hopeful that our demands will be looked after, which is increasing Non-Practising Allowance (NPA) to 40 per cent from existent 25 per cent, instead it has been reduced to 20 per cent.

“The basic pay and NPA were merged together while calculating House Rental Allowance (HRA) earlier, but this has now been omitted and HRA will be calculated only with basic pay resulting in less than the desired salary,” said FORDA President Dr Pankaj Solanki.

The doctor’s body also demanded uniform pay scales, night shift allowances which currently exists for nursing staff in government hospitals and the formulation of a uniform central residency scheme for the resident doctors of India.

FORDA is an umbrella organisation of 15,000 resident doctors across 41 government hospitals in the capital.

JACSDO represents 11 organised and unorganised Central Health Services (CHS), Indian Railway Medical Services (IRMS), Indian Ordinance Health Services (IOHS), MCD, NDMC, Delhi administration and ESIC. (PTI)

7th Pay Commission Implementation: Govt says Amount Allocated to Manage Impact

7th Pay Commission Implementation: Govt says Amount Allocated to Manage Impact

Speculations are rife as Centre to take decision on 7th Pay Commision report implementation as around 47 lakh Central Government employees working in various sectors await their salary hike, which will have implications for government finances and inflation.

At a time when there are no conclusive increase in the private sector spending yet and the government also losing the benefits of low oil prices, it is facing a tough challenge in keeping up with the spending in public sector.

Reacting to a query, Finance secretary Ashok Lavasa said that a certain amount has been allocated to manage the impact of the pay commission award. But to speculate whether the amount is adequate enough, would be too early and premature.

Sources say, for this fiscal year the provision for hounouring the pay panel’s award is about Rs 54,000 crore whereas the outgo is estimated to be Rs 74,000 crore. Lavasa refused to comment on that saying no one knows as to what extent the government will accept the 7th Pay Commisions report.
