Dear Madam,

Sub: Oral Evidence of the AIRF before the VII CPC
Ref: Secretary, VII CPC’s letter No.7CPC/158/Meetings/2015 dated 19.03.2015

We are very much thankful to Seventh Central Pay Commission for giving an opportunity to the Constituent Organizations of the National Council(JCM) for Oral Evidence before the Seventh Central Pay Commission, but at the same we submit that, the time allotted is quite short, particularly for the Railways and Defence.
It is worthwhile to mention here that the VI CPC had given us sufficient time to represent 136 categories and 13 lakh Railwaymen, spread throughout the Indian Railways as well as to other Central Government Organizations.

We do hope, the VII CPC will appreciate our viewpoint and allot sufficient time to represent the views of the Central Government employees of different categories.
With regards,
Yours faithfully,
