Government to incur additional expenses due to 7th Pay Commission

Government to incur additional expenses due to 7th Pay Commission :

Pay and Allowances of Central Government employees will increase one lakh crore in the current financial year and also projected to increase further due to recommendations of 7th Pay Commission.

“Salary is a big question for even profit-minded private concerns. It is therefore not surprising that the employees of service-oriented Central Government departments are so obsessed about their pays and allowances. For a few central and state government organizations that rake in huge profits, salaries and allowances to their employees is no big issue.”

A report on the spending habits of the middle class was presented in the Parliament yesterday. According to the report presented by the Minister of Finance, Arun Jaitley, “the salary given to Central Government employees in the current financial year will exceed Rs.1 lakh crore.” The amount is expected to rise further after the implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. This could lead to a financial crunch.

According to estimates, there could be an increase of 9.56 percent in the salary allocation for Central Government employees, to Rs.1 lakh 619 crores. In the Financial Year 2016-17, after the implementations of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, it is very likely to increase to 15.79 percent and touch Rs.1.16 lakh crores. During the Financial Year 2017-18, it will further rise to Rs.1.28 lakh crores. Funds for pensioners will increase to Rs.88,521 crores this financial year. During the Financial Year 2016-17, it is expected to be 1.02 lakh crores. By the Financial Year 2017-18, it would be Rs.1.12 lakh crores.

7th Pay Commission is expected to submit its final report including the revised pay and pension structure for Central Government employees and pensioners to the Central Government on in the last week of September.
If everything goes as planned, the 7th Pay Commission recommendations will come into effect from 01.01.2016 onwards.

Meanwhile, there is no doubt in the fact that employees are extremely curious to find out how much their salaries would increase if the new Pay Commission recommendations are implemented.

PM’s address to the nation on 69th Independence Day

PM: The termite of corruption will be rooted out by “Team India.” Government’s initiatives have eliminated corruption in various sectors

PM emphasizes on farmers’ welfare, raising agricultural productivity

PM: OROP accepted “in-principle”, modalities being worked out

PM: Start-Up India, Stand-Up India

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today highlighted the resolve of 125 crore Indians, as “Team India”, to root out corruption, and to make India a developed nation by 2022 – the 75th anniversary of independence.

Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the occasion of India’s 69th Independence Day, the Prime Minister gave a broad overview of the achievements of Team India, over the last 15 months. He said that the unity, simplicity and brotherhood of 125 crore Indians, is the strength of this nation, and casteism and communalism have no place in our society.

The Prime Minister explained how various initiatives of his Government have resulted in removing corruption from different aspects of governance. In this context, he highlighted the auctions of coal, spectrum and FM radio licenses. He mentioned the PAHAL scheme for direct transfer of LPG subsidy, which has resulted in savings of Rs. 15,000 crore. He said the introduction of “neem-coated urea” has helped to end diversion of subsidized urea to non-agricultural purposes. He acknowledged that the common man still faces problems because of corruption. The Prime Minister described corruption as a termite, which needs bitter medicine, with possible side-effects, to cure. Through the various initiatives of the Government, the Prime Minister highlighted how each had contributed to the elimination of middlemen. He said that in the last year, the CBI had registered 1800 cases against corruption, as against 800 in the year before that.

The Prime Minister said important steps had been taken in the drive against black money, and the outflow of unaccounted income to foreign destinations had been checked.

The Prime Minister stressed on the need for farmers’ welfare, and declared that the Ministry of Agriculture would be renamed as the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare. He said that his Government was focusing on raising farm productivity, and providing electricity and irrigation to farmers. He said the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana had been launched with an outlay of Rs. 50,000 crore.

The Prime Minister recalled some of the resolves he had made in his Independence Day address last year. He said the promise of toilets in all schools had been almost fulfilled, with the cooperation of States. He said financial inclusion had received a big boost with the opening of 17 crore bank accounts through the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. He said the Rs. 20,000 crore deposited in the Jan Dhan accounts reflected the “richness of India’s poor” (गरीबों की अमीरी).

The Prime Minister also spoke of the welfare schemes launched by the Union Government, including Atal Pension Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Yojana, and the schemes launched for labour welfare.

Describing children as the greatest brand ambassadors for “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan,” the Prime Minister said this vision had generated great interest for the people of India.

The Prime Minister announced the “Start-Up India” initiative, which would encourage entrepreneurship among the youth of India. He said each of the 1.25 lakh bank branches, should encourage at least one Dalit or Adivasi entrepreneur, and at least one woman entrepreneur. “Start-Up India, Stand-Up India,” the Prime Minister said.

On the long-standing demand from ex-serviceman for One-Rank, One-Pension, the Prime Minister reiterated that the demand had been accepted by the Government “in-principle.” He said the modalities were being worked out with stakeholders, and he was hopeful of a positive outcome.

The Prime Minister reiterated his Government’s resolve to make India a developed nation by 2022, with a house and access to basic services like electricity, to all. He said the Government had resolved to connect with electricity, all the 18,500 villages which still remain without power, within the next 1000 days. He also reiterated his vision for the development of eastern India.

Questioning the practice of “interviews” for recruitments even at relatively junior levels, the Prime Minister called upon concerned departments to end this practice at the earliest, and to promote merit by recruiting only through transparent, online processes.
