7th CPC notification and struggles

Comrades,

            The Central Government Employees are waiting for the implementation of Seventh Pay Commission. As per the reports received, the 7th Pay Commission Pay recommendations may be notified in June after the model code of conduct of states polls which in place is in place till 21st May 2016, which is being considered as cut off point for the notification of pay commission. To be on safer side, Government most likely will release notification regarding the latest pay commission only after 21st May 2016.

 Implementation cell of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries is examining the grievances of employees. After giving final touch to report, Empowered Committee will send recommendations to PMO for its nod. Once PMO will through the report, it will be placed before the Cabinet for final approval. The whole process will take another three months.

But the larger question remains in the minds of the Central Government Employees, whether the Empowered Committee of Secretaries will consider the demands raised by the Staff side JCM. The Empowered Committee of Secretaries under the chairmanship of the Cabinet Secretary had one round of discussion with the staff side JCM. The Staff side JCM has clearly informed the Empowered Committee of Secretaries that the Central Government Employees are not satisfied with 7th CPC report and wants major changes before implementation of the 7th CPC report by the Central Government. Especially on the minimum wage, fitment formula, pay matrix and allowances.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries was also informed that the Central Government Employees are ready for strike action,  if the demands of the Central Government Employees are not met by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries and the Central Government.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries may call the staff side JCM for more discussions, if the talks fail then the Central Government Employees should prepare for the indefinite strike from July 11th for which the staff side JCM has given the call.

Comrades, these three months are very crucial to the Central Government Employees, we should not relax waiting for the talks with the Central Government, instead prepare for the action for achieving a better wage hike.

Comrades during the 5th CPC we had similar situations,  we had got better wage hike after struggles, similarly this time also the similar situation has arisen due to the lowest pay hike recommended by the 7th CPC and also reduction of the number of allowances.     

Hence Comrades it is high time we educate each and every employee of the Central Government about the 7th CPC wage hike and our demands , this is help us to prepare for struggle and get better wage hike.

                                                 Comradely yours

                                                 (P.S.Prasad)
                                               General Secretary

Dear Sir,
In addition to the various genuine demands raised by you with the Committee of Secretaries, I would like you to bring these 2 important crucial issues before them for implemetation:

1. Retention of 3% increment on basic pay in case of promotion leads to lower financial benefits than the existing benefits:
The financial benefit would be much lower than what a government servant would have got under VI CPC recommendation on promotion, because the existing benefit on promotion carry change in grade pay apart from 3% increase in Pay+Grade Pay. The following illustration shall show the huge difference:

Suppose an employee whose Pay is Rs.10400/- and the Grade pay is Rs. 2800/- totalling to Rs.13200(in the Pay band of 5200-20200), gets his next promotion to the Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- he will be entitled to the following hike in total remuneration under the existing VI CPC recommendation as a result of promotion::
Rs.13200 x 3% increment =Rs.400
Difference in Grade Pay from Rs.2800 to Rs.4200= Rs.1400
Total increase of increment in basic pay and Grade Pay= Rs.1800
D.A. at 125% as on 1/1/2016 on Rs.1800 = Rs.2250
HRA at 30%(assuming X city) on Rs.1800 =Rs.540
Total monetary benefit = Rs.4590/-

Whereas the net monetary benefit under VII CPC recommendation, as a result of promotion in the above case will be much lower than the above illustraion as shown under:
Equivalent Basic Pay for Rs.13200 come to Rs.33900 as per pay matrix
Rs.33900 x 3% increment =Rs.1017(placed at Rs.35,400 as per pay matrix)
Total difference Rs.35400 – Rs33900 =1500
D.A. at 0% as on 1/1/2016 on Rs.1500= 0
HRA at 24%(assuming X city) on Rs.1500 =Rs.360
Total monetary benefit = Rs.1860/-only as against the existing Rs.4590/- leading to shortage of Rs. 2730/- This is a big blunder committed by the VII Pay commission.
Therefore the increment on promotion should be atleast 5 to 6% to bring the benefit of increment on promotion to the existing level. I have not grudge against annual increment as no shortage in monetary benefit is involved.

2. Non recommendation for merger of 50% of D.A. with basic pay when D.A. crosses 50% is a great disappointment:

The long standing demand of the central government employees for merger of 50% D.A with basic was not implemented by the government on the excuse that the VI CPC had not made such a proposal. The VII CPC is totally silent about this aspect. It appears no one has demanded the same before the VII CPC for consideration.
It is quite surprising that such a vital issue of non-recommendation of merger of D.A with basic pay when D.A crosses 50% is not being opposed by any central government associations or pointed out by the the media. Had it been recommended by the VII CPC, the government would have implemented the same and the benefit of hike in salary as a result of merger of D.A with basic when it cross 50%, would be so vast that no government servant would crave for timely setting up of next VIII Central Pay commission.

I hope you will take up the above 2 important issues before the Committee. For further details you can refer to my article 'VII CPC RECOMMENDATIONS ARE FAR BENEFICIAL" which is appearing in various central government portals like govtempdiary, central government employees news & tools, 7th cpc news.in etc.
