"Presently, we consider the interim report as essential due to the important reasons given below:1. The 50% DA merger that was allowed in the 5th Pay Commission is not made available now for Central Government employees after 6th CPC report was implemented.2. Also the inflation rate is the range of 7 to 11 % in last 8 years is very high.” The actual price rise is more than 200% and DA we got as on 1/1/14 is 100%. we are not fully compensated by DA , what should have been 100% neutralization, now it is just 50% neutralization of price rise. Price rise is happening in every sector not only in food items, the rise is more in housing & service sector.
“h) To recommend the date of effect of its recommendations on all the above.
The Commission will make its recommendations within 18 months of the date of its constitution. It may consider, if necessary, sending interim reports on any of the matters as and when the recommendations are finalised.″
