7th Pay Commission to submit report on November 19 (Tomorrow 19.30 Hrs.)

“Once every ten years, the salaries and perks of Central Government employees are completely revised. The previous revision was implemented on 01.01.2006. The new set of salaries and benefits will come into effect from 01.01.2016 onwards.”

The 7th Pay Commission, under the chairmanship of Justice A.K.Mathur, will submit its 900-page report to the centre tomorrow at 19.30 Hrs.

A review of the 7th Central Pay Commission :-

25.09.2013 – P. Chidambaram, the then Minister of Finance, made headlines when he announced the proposal to constitute the 7th Pay Commission.

04.02.2014 – The then Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh gave approval for constituting the 7th Pay Commission. Under the chairmanship of Justice A.K.Mathur, a four-member Pay Commission committee was formed (1. Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, Chairman; 2. Vivek Rae, Member; 3. Dr. Rathin Roy, Member; and 4. Mrs. Meena Agarwal, Secretary).

28.02.2014 – The Terms of Reference were issued to the Pay Commission, with the approval of the cabinet.
The Pay Commission was given 18 months time to complete its work. This time around, the commission managed to effectively complete its task, almost on time.

The Pay Commission visited various places in the country to personally inspect the work conditions and gather feedback from the workers associations and representatives.

Opinions were invited from all, and not just the NC JCM Staff Side, Confederations and major employees unions and associations.

The Pay Commission hosted its own website where it regularly updated its progress.

In a section called “Questionnaire,” the commission asked questions to the visitors and gathered online feedback from them.

24.06.2014 – the NC JCM Staff Side presented a Memorandum to the Pay Commission, containing the suggestions and proposed pay structure of nearly 45 lakh employees and also such demands for 50 lakh pensioners.

25.06.2015 – The Pay Commission made an important announcement on its website. It said that task on the report will end very soon and it will be submitted to the government on time.

The report, which was supposed to be submitted in August, was delayed when the Pay Commission, on 27.08.2015, asked for an extension of four months to complete its report.

The OROP protests and Bihar polls are believed to be the reasons for submitting the report much ahead of December. Initially, the Pay Commission was expected to submit its report on November 20 or 23. But, PTI announced yesterday that the report will be submitted on November 19.

And Today the official website of 7th CPC also published the date and time of submission of its report to the Central Government.

Experts and various sources expect 15 to 20 percent hike in the salaries. But, none has explained the basis on which the numbers were arrived at.

The employees are not just curious about the salary hikes. They are interested in other aspects, including Promotions, Retirement Age, DA merger, Increment, Grade Pay, HRA, Bonus, LTC, and the removal of certain pay anomalies of the 6th Pay Commission are some of the expectations.

By evening tomorrow, we will have most of the answers. Let’s all wait!

Report of 7th pay panel may not be having satisfying recommendations

Report of 7th pay panel may not be having satisfying recommendations: GServant Article
 
 
7th pay commission is going to submit its report on 20th November 2015 and 15 % hike is recommended
 
Report from news circle says that 7th pay commission is going to submit its report on 20th November 2015 and 15% hike is recommended
 
After submission, it is believed that the outcome of 7th cpc recommendation will be unexpected and disappointment for bapus as Central Government deliberately influenced the Pay commission to be cautious about upward revision of pay and allowances of govt servants.
 
When the commission itself was ready to submit the report in stipulated time initially, the Central government gave four months extension upto December 2015.
 
 
The reason cited by Federation leaders for the extension was ‘ NDA government didn’t want to put itself in a mess before Bihar Election, because the Recommendation will not fulfil the expectation of Govt servants. The NDA government felt that disappointed central government employees may protest over 7th pay commission recommendation if it does not meet their expectation which , it felt, may reflect in Election Results. So the Central Government decided to postpone the date of submission of the report after the Bihar election.
 
 
But unexpectedly the NDA has failed to yield fruitful results in Bihar election. Now opposite parties found the reason to be united against the NDA Government, since the election result gave them faith and beleif to over power the NDA in coming elections.’
 
 
Further they added, “The winter session of Parliament going to start from 26 November 2015, opposite parties waiting to stall the proceedings of Parliament based on handful of sensitive issues which will be a bitter experience for NDA government.
 
 
So submission of 7th pay commission report before the winter session of parliament may help the govt to divert the attention of media and public from the sensitive issues”.
 
 
The Pay Commission, if it followed the methods adopted by previous pay commissions to compute the increase to be recommended for revision of pay and allowances of government servants, minimum 40% increase can be recommended.
 
 
But According to the Medium-Term Expenditure Framework Statement tabled by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Parliament said
 
“The salary outgo of central government employees will go up by 9.56 per cent to Rs 1,00,619 crore in current fiscal.
The pace will increase further in 2016-17 at 15.79 per cent to Rs 1.16 lakh crore with the likely implementation of the 7th Pay Commission award”
 
So there are two possibilities for calculating Fitment Formula
 
 
1. As per the Finance Minister Statment the increase will be 15 %
 
2. All the Fedrartion demanded for 40 to 60 % hike, but minimum 30 % increase is expected.
 
 
Accordingly The Fitment formula for the above two estimates are worked out below
 
Present DA = 119%
Expected DA from from January 2016 =6%
Total Da =125 %
 
DA has to be neutralised to arrive Revised Pay from 1.1.2016, if so Multiplication factor will be 2.25
 
If 30% increase is recommended-
 
The Fitment formula = 2.25 + (2.25×30/100)  = 2.92
Minimum Basic will be Rs.7000 x 2.92 = Rs.20440
 
If 15% increase is recommended-
 
The Fitment formula = 2.25 + (2.25×15/100)   = 2.58
Minimum Basic will be Rs.7000 X 2.58 = Rs.18060
 
Minimum Pay to be recommended according to the above estimates by 7th Pay commission will be either Rs.20000 or Rs.18000
 
 
How ever both of the above figures will not satisfy the central government employees since the increase is not going to match their expectation. We have to wait to know the exact increase recommended by 7th pay commission till the date of the report is made public.

Minimum train fare to be increased from Rs 5 to Rs 10 at Par with platform ticket

Minimum train fare to be increased from Rs 5 to Rs 10 at Par with platform ticket

New Delhi: The minimum train passenger fare will go up from Rs 5 to Rs 10 as railways has decided to increase the minimum chargeable fare in non-suburban services at par with the platform ticket from November 20.

The platform ticket price was revised from Rs 5 to Rs 10 in April this year as proposed in the rail budget with a view to control the rush on platforms.

However, the objective could not be realised as passengers opted for purchasing the minimum single journey second class tickets priced at Rs 5 in lieu of the platform ticket, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
Therefore, railways have now decided to increase the minimum fare from Rs 5 to Rs 10.

“It will be effective from November 20 to make it at par with the platform ticket charges. It aims at meeting the objective of controlling the rush at platform for the convenience of passengers,” the official said.

To begin with, this will be applicable only to second class non-suburban services only. It is expected that the step will bring down the rush on the platforms to manageable levels, the official added.
