Will the 7th CPC fulfil the demands of LDCs and UDCs?

Will the 7th CPC fulfil the demands of LDCs and UDCs?

For a number of years now, especially after the 6th CPC, the problems faced by LDCs and UDCs have started gaining prominence. The unity and sense of purpose among them makes them look all set for the kind of victory that Pharmacists had. Common sense of purpose, unity and dedication sure make success possible!

In order to decrease the number of grades, the 6th Pay Commission combined all the different grades between Grade Pay 1300 to Grade Pay 1800 into a single grade – Grade Pay 1800, thereby wiping out the entire Group ‘D’. As a result, everybody became Group ‘C’ employees. Even those who lacked the minimum education levels, illiterates and everybody else were lumped into Group ‘C’. Their Grade Pay was also raised to Rs. 1800. But, at the same time, employees working as LDCs, who have a minimum educational qualification of Class XII and also possess some technical education, were not given any upgrading. Instead, they now had to share their grade with lesser-qualified former Grade ‘D’ employees.

The next huge trouble originated from the MACP. Those who didn’t get any promotion for years are given career upgradations through MACP. LDCs who didn’t get any promotions for more than 10 years were given their next grade pay, from Rs. 1900, their pay rose to Rs. 2000. The increase of mere Rs. 100 turned out to be a huge disappointment to many. Similarly, those with Grade Pay 2400 were hoping for a jump to Grade Pay 4200, but were instead forced to upgrade with only Grade Pay 2800 as per MACP rules. That anger kept seething too, because the different is 1400.

The most important demand of the LDCs and UDCs is to upgrade the current Pay Scale-Grade Pay.
Grades are decided based on the educational qualification of the employees. An LDC possesses a minimum educational qualification of Class XII and also has some technical qualifications. The basic salary of an LDC is just Rs. 1900 + 5830 = Rs. 7730.00. They want it revised to Rs. 2400 + 7510 = Rs. 9910.

The big question is – will the 7th CPC grant this demand?

Bank employees may come under 7th Pay Commission

Bank staff may come under govt pay panel: Hindustan Times
Even after several rounds of talks between bank employee unions and the Indian Banks Association (IBA), there seems to be no consensus on the quantum of salary hike for over 800,000 employees at different public sector lenders.
While the IBA has indicated that the maximum hike that can be offered to employees is about 11%, unions are demanding a 25% raise.
With the stalemate still continuing, sources said a proposal could also be considered to bring them under the purview of the Seventh Pay Commission, which has already been constituted. A large section of bank employees are, however, unwilling to do the same.
“There needs to be an end to the stalemate and this is an option that has also come up,” an official source who refused to be identified said.
IBA chairman, TM Bhasin, however, told HT that there was no proposal to bring bank employees under the purview of the pay commission. “IBA has no such consideration and no proposal has come to the IBA,” he said.
“There have been some reports of bringing the bank employees under the purview of the pay commission but we are completely opposed to such a move,” said CH Venkatachalam, general secretary, All India Bank Employees Association.
The salary revision of bank employees is due since November 2012.
Unions meanwhile have threatened to go on a strike on November 12. There could even be an indefinite strike thereafter if the issue is not addressed, union representatives said.
A senior bank executive said the issue of wage settlement would have to be sorted at the earliest and the finance ministry could intervene to ensure that the deadlock comes to an end.
“At a time, when the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana is underway and targets have to be met, there is little scope to lose time,” he said.
