The date of effect of allowances.

Comrades,
        The Central Government employees are always be cheated in respect of date of implementation of allowances especially on HRA , from past twenty years it is observed that these allowances are issued from a later date in 5th CPC case it was issued after 20 months , in case of 6th CPC it was issued after 32 months  , in 7th CPC we hoped it will be issued in 7 months , but it was not the case , now it is likely to be issued only after 11 months . There by causing financial loss to the employees, the cost of living index is going up every month, but the allowances especially the HRA is not issued from the date of effect of the pay commission.

The following are the facts :              
 The Fifth Central Pay Commission was set up by the Government of India by Resolution No. 5(12)/E. III/93 dated 9th April, 1994.  The Commission submitted on the 30th January, 1997. The revised allowances, other than dearness allowance, was  effective from 1st day of August, 1997 instead of 1st January 1996. 

 The Government constituted the Sixth Central Pay Commission vide Resolution No. 5/2/2006-E.III(A) dated October 5, 2006. and Gazette Notification for implementation of 6th CPC was issued on 29th August 2008, all allowances were issued effective from 1st August 2008 instead of 1st January 2006.

In a resolution dated 28th February, 2014, Government of India has appointed the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The Gazette Notification for implementation of 7th CPC was issued on 25th July 2016 (without allowances) , all allowances are likely to be issued from 1st December 2016 instead of instead of 1st January 2016 after a committee headed by the Finance Secretary gives its report .

The present HRA and other allowances as per 6th CPC is totally insufficient, the cost of housing has gone up drastically and cost of living has gone up hence urgent need to revise the HRA and other allowances , we hope the Government to review the allowances at the earliest, so that the Central Government employees will get the enhanced allowances especially HRA from 1st July 2016 as per earlier practices.

                                                                  Comradely yours

REPLY OF THE FINANCE MINISTER IN RAJYA SABHA

7th CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION

REPLY OF THE FINANCE MINISTER IN RAJYA SABHA

Dear Comrades,

We are reproducing below the reply given by the Hon’ble Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley in the Rajya Sabha on 19-07-2016 --

The Finance Minister has made it clear that the government is responsive to the concerns of the Employees’ Associations and it would be the endeavor of the Government to ensure that the eventuality of a strike does not arise.”

Regarding increasing of the multiplication factor, the Finance Minister replied that:

“no such proposal is under consideration of the Government, at present

The assurance given to the NJCA leaders by the Group of Ministers (including Finance Minister) on 30-06-2016 is that enhancement in minimum pay and fitment factor (multiplication factor) will be considered favourably by the Government, once the proposal in this regard is submitted to Government by the proposed “High Level Committee” within four months. Hence, the matter will come for the  “consideration” of the Govt. only after submission of the report by the High Level Committee.

In that sense, technically, the reply of the Finance Minister that “at present” there is no such proposal under consideration of the Government, may not be taken in a different manner and we need not jump into the conclusion that multiplication factor will not be increased.

However, giving due importance to the concerns expressed by many of our comrades and grass-root level leaders, the NJCA will discuss this issue shortly and take appropriate decision. NJCA is keenly observing the move of the Govt. and any going back from the assurances given by the Group of Ministers or any betrayal of 33 lakhs Central Govt. Employees and 40 lakhs pensioners by the NDA Govt., shall result in revival of the deferred strike by the NJCA and Government will be solely responsible for all consequences.

The 7th CPC
The union cabinet gave its approval for implementation of the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission on 29th June 2016.
