Mixed Responses when Sixth pay commission report submitted to Finance Minister

There will be same response after the Report of 7th pay commission submitted to Finance Minister

Today the 7th pay commission going to submit its recommendations to Finance Minister Shri.Arun 19.30 PM

Our waiting for knowing the 7th pay commission recommendation on pay and allowances will come to an end this evening. After that we will be hearing mixed responses from various quarters. If it gives satisfaction to one side and the same will be disappointment to other side.

When sixth pay commission submitted its report to the then Finance minister Mr.P.Chidambaram, many trade unions were not satisfied over the recommendation of sixth pay commission.

After presenting the report to Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, Mr. Justice Srikrishna said: “I have recommended something which is good for the nation … the average hike will be 40 per cent.”

The Hindu daily , dated 25-3-2008, has published various reports about the sixth pay commission recommendation. It described recommendation with a title “Bonanza for Central government staff”

♦ Commission recommends 40% hike in salary

NEW DELHI: In a major post-Holi bonanza, the Sixth Pay Commission on Monday recommended an average 40 per cent increase in the salary of over 40 lakh Central government employees and a doubling of most of their allowances that would impose a burden of Rs. 12,561 crore on the exchequer in 2008-09.

Resentment among CG employees Federation over recommendation of sixth pay commission also were reported in Hindu dated 25-3-2008

♦ The Centre of Indian Trade Unions has described the Pay Commission recommendations as “arbitrary, discriminatory and disappointing.”

♦ In a statement issued here on Monday, CITU president M. K. Pandhe said that against the demand of Rs. 10,000 as the minimum wage computed on the basis of the 15th Indian Labour Conference recommendations, the Commission has recommended only a paltry Rs. 5,740, while the maximum has been fixed at Rs. 90,000.

♦ The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers has described the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations as “totally unacceptable” and decided to stage a protest here on Wednesday to “fight for a decent wage settlement.”

♦ In a statement issued here on Tuesday, the Confederation drew attention to the recommendations that were made by them but rejected by the Commission, including fixing the minimum wage at Rs 10,000 a month. The minimum wage recommended in the report was even less than what was suggested in the previous Pay Commission, the statement said.

♦ South Central Railway Mazdoor Union secretary C. Ramakrishnama Charyulu on Monday said that the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations had disappointed all the Central Government employees. He said the pay hike recommended by the commission was nothing but pittance.

After submission of the 7th pay commission report we may hear same words but through others voice. Because the leaders might have been changed but voice will be the same . But as we said earlier the recommendation to be submitted today is not final verdict since it is subject to change. Because before 7th cpc report goes to cabinet approval it has to cross various hurdles.

The news created buzz over internet and government staffs expectation went sky high because of many reasons.

All the central government employees very keen to know the 7th Pay Commission recommendation on the following important matters.

1.Amount of Increase in Basic Pay : There were many news and roumers circulated about the amount of Increase over Basic Pay. It is now expected 15 to 30 % increase will be there in the recommendations of Pay commission.

2. 7th CPC Pay Structure: Whether existing system [Pay Band and Grade Pay] continues or not ?.
Federations claimed that pay commission accepted to drop the Grade Pay and Pay band System and old Pay Scale system with open ended Pay scale would be recommended. This would be a critical decision as both the systems has its own advantages and dis advantages.

3.Annual Increment : How much it will be granted?
At least 5% of the Basic Pay has been expected as annual increment in 7th Pay commission. Some doubts are there that Performance based Increment and Promotion will be recommended by the Pay commission. But it is not feasible for implementing this proposal in Govt Sector.

4. MACP in 7th Pay commission : Federation demanded 5 MACP to be ensured in ones career. But it expected 4 MACP s will be granted. But the main plea of Central government Federation is MACP should be granted on Promotion hierarchy instead of Grade pay hierarchy.

5.Pay Fixation on Promotion : In the existing system it is reported that Pay fixation on promotion created anomaly and and it lead to Junior gets higher Pay than Senior Govt servants. There should be definite Pay Scale and Pay for respective promotion is expected with the benefit of 10% increment on pay fixation

6. House Rent Allowance
NCJCM Proposal demanded 60%,40% and 20% of HRA instead of 30%,20% and 10%. But it is not known how much the 7th pay commission decided to grant on HRA

7. Dearness Allowance
DA Calculation will be revised and it is expected the pay commission to recommend merger of dearness Allowance whenever DA reaches 50%

8. All other Allowances
All the other allowances including CCA, TA to be proportionate to the amount of increase in rate of Dearness Allowance.

All the above matters will be cleared by this evening and let us wait for 8 more hours to know the all the information. But whatever it is recommended in the 7th pay commission report is not final and it is subject to modification based on the impact and objections and responses both sides from central government and government servants, unions and Federations.
