7th CPC Report: Military Service Pay (MSP) for Defence Forces Personnel

7th CPC Report: Military Service Pay (MSP) for Defence Forces Personnel

The defence forces personnel, in addition to their pay as per the Matrices above, will be entitled to payment of Military Service Pay for all ranks up to and inclusive of Brigadiers and their equivalents. The Commission recommends an MSP for the four categories of Defence forces personnel at Rs.15,500 for the Service Officers, Rs.10,800 for Nursing Officers, Rs.5,200 for JCO/ORs, and Rs.3,600 for Non Combatants (Enrolled) in the Air Force per month. MSP will continue to be reckoned as Basic Pay for purposes of Dearness Allowance, as also in the computation of pension. Military Service Pay will however not be counted for purposes of House Rent Allowance, Composite Transfer Grant and Annual Increment.

Child Care Leave (CCL) for single male parent recommended by 7th Pay Commission report.

Child Care Leave (CCL) for single male parent recommended by 7th Pay Commission report.

New Delhi: The Seventh Pay Commission report has recommended Child Care Leave (CCL) for single male parent, which is currently given to only women employees.

CCL is granted to women employees for a maximum period of two years (730 days) during their entire service for taking care of their minor children (up to eighteen years of age).

The Pay Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, submitted its recommendations to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley yesterday.

“The Commission notes that in the event a male employee is single, the onus of rearing and nurturing the children falls squarely on his shoulders.

“Hence extension of CCL to single male parents is recommended,” the report said.

It also recommended CCL at 100 per cent of the salary for the first 365 days, and 80 per cent of the salary for the next 365 days.

CCL was first introduced by 6th Central Pay Commission.

The report also said there is a “palpable need” to bring in some inhibiting feature so as to ensure that only genuinely affected employees avail of this scheme.

“Towards this end, the Commission recommends that CCL should be granted at 100 per cent of the salary for the first 365 days, but at 80 per cent of the salary for the next 365 days,” the report said.
The report further said that the Commission recognises the additional responsibility on the shoulders of employees who are single mothers.

“Accordingly, it is recommended that for such employees, the conditionality of three spells in a calendar year should be relaxed to six spells in a calendar year,” the 900-page report said.

In making the recommendation, the Commission said it has also kept in mind the fact the concept of a paid (whether 100 per cent or 80 per cent) leave solely for child care for a period of two years, “is a liberal measure unmatched anywhere else”.

7th Pay Commission Basic Pay Calculation Method in brief with illustration

Know Easy steps to Calculate your 7th Pay Commission New Pay Scale

7th Pay commission simplified the calculation for arriving revised Pay through new 7th CPC Pay Metrix
We here illustrate the method through easy 6 Steps to calculate our 7th CPC New Pay and Allowances to know your self

Lat us Assume you are drawing Grade Pay Rs.4200 and Pay in the Band Pay Rs.12110

To calculate your Basic Pay and Allowance follow the steps given below.

Step-I
Calculate your sixth CPC basic Pay
( Grade Pay + Band Pay) = 4200+12110= 16310

Step-II
Multiply the above figure with 7th CPC Fitment Formula 2.57
16310 x 2.57 = 41916.70 . ( Paisa to be rounded off to the nearest Rupee)
The Ans is = Rs.41917

Step-III
Match this Answer with Matrix Table ( Given Below) Figures assigned in Grade Pay column Rs.4200

7th cpc pay


There is no matching figure we arrived above in this matrix, so the closest higher figure assigned in the Grade Pay column can be chosen ie is Rs. 42300

So , Rs 42300 is your New 7th CPC Basic Pay


Step-IV
Identify your HRA [ See : 7th Pay commission recommendation on HRA]
HRA has been revised as 24%, 16% and 8% for 30% , 20% and 10% respectively
So if you are in 30% HRA Bracket, your HRA in 7th CPC is 24% vis versa.
Let us assume now you are in 30% HRA bracket, your revised HRA is 24%
Find the 24% of the Basic Pay = 42300 x 24/100 = 10152
Your HRA is Rs.10152

Step-V
Identify your TPTA (Transport Allowance)
7th CPC Recommends Transport Allowance for three Category of Employees for Two Types of Places
If you are living in A1 and A classified cities (See the List of 19 cities classified as A1 and A cities) you will be entitled to get higher TPTA rates
7th cpc TPTA Transport Allowance
And since your Grade Pay is 4200 you fall in Second category
ie Grade Pay 2000 to 4800 – Rs 3600+DA
Your TPTA is Rs. 3600/- (DA is Nil as on 1.1.2016)


Step-VI

 (Sine DA will be Zero from 1.1.2016 So no need to calculate the DA to calculate 7th Pay and Allowances from 1.1.2016)
Add all the figures
New Basic Pay + HRA+TPTA = 42300+10152+3600 = 56052
Your revised 7th CPC Grass pay as on 1.1.2016 = Rs.56052

(a)       GDS are Extra-Departmental Agents recruited by Department of Posts to serve in rural areas.

(b)       As per the Recruitment Rules the minimum educational qualification for recruitment to this post is class X.

(c)        GDS are required to be on duty only for 4 to 5 hours a day under the terms and conditions of their service.

(d)       The GDS are remunerated with Time Related continuity Allowance (TRCA) on the pattern of pay scales for regular Government employees plus DA on pro-rata basis.

(e)       A GDS must have other means of income independent of his remuneration as a GDS to sustain himself and his family.

Government of India has so far held that GDS is outside the Civil Service of the Union and shall not claim to be at par with the Central Government Employees. The Supreme Court Judgment also states that GDS are only holder of Civil posts but not civilian employees. The Commission endorses this view and therefore has no recommendation with regard to GDS.

7th CPC Pay Fixation with examples

7th CPC Pay Fixation with examples

Pay Fixation in the New Pay Structure : The fitment of each employee in the new pay matrix is proposed to be done by multiplying his/her basic pay on the date of implementation by a factor of 2.57. 

The figure so arrived at is to be located in the new pay matrix, in the level that corresponds to the employee’s grade pay on the date of implementation, except in cases where the Commission has recommended a change in the existing grade pay. If the identical figure is not available in the given level, the next higher figure closest to it would be the new pay of the concerned employee. A couple of examples are detailed below to make the process amply clear.

The pay in the new pay matrix is to be fixed in the following manner:

Step 1: Identify Basic Pay (Pay in the pay band plus Grade Pay) drawn by an employee as on the date of implementation. This figure is ‘A’.

Step 2: Multiply ‘A’ with 2.57, round-off to the nearest rupee, and obtain result ‘B’.

Step 3: The figure so arrived at, i.e., ‘B’ or the next higher figure closest to it in the Level assigned to his/her grade pay, will be the new pay in the new pay matrix. In case the value of ‘B’ is less than the starting pay of the Level, then the pay will be equal to the starting pay of that level

Example I

i. For example an employee H is presently drawing Basic Pay of Rs.55,040 (Pay in the Pay Band Rs.46340 + Grade Pay Rs.8700 = Rs.55040). After multiplying Rs.55,040 with 2.57, a figure of Rs.1,41,452.80 is arrived at. This is rounded off to Rs.1,41,453.

ii. The level corresponding to GP 8700 is level 13, as may be seen from Table 4, which gives the full correspondence between existing Grade Pay and the new Levels being proposed.

iii. In the column for level 13, the figure closest to Rs.1,41,453 is Rs.1,41,600.

iv. Hence the pay of employee H will be fixed at Rs.1,41,600 in level 13 in the new pay matrix as shown below:

Pay Matrix



As part of its recommendations if Commission has recommended any upgradation or downgrade in the level of a particular post, the person would be placed in the level corresponding to the newly recommended grade pay.

Example II

i. Take the case of an employee T in GP 4200, drawing pay of Rs.20,000 in PB-2. The Basic Pay is Rs.24,200 (20,000+4200). If there was to be no change in T’s level the pay fixation would have been as explained in Example I above. After multiplying by 2.57, the amount fetched viz., Rs.62,194 would have been located in Level 6 and T’s pay would have been fixed in Level 6 at Rs.62,200.

Pay Matrix 7th CPC



ii. However, assuming that the Commission has recommended that the post occupied by T should be placed one level higher in GP 4600. T’s basic pay would then be Rs.24,600 (20000 + 4600). Multiplying this by 2.57 would fetch Rs.63,222.

iii. This value would have to be located in the matrix in Level 7 (the upgraded level of T).

iv. In the column for Level 7 Rs.63,222 lies between 62200 and 64100. Accordingly, the pay of T will be fixed in Level 7 at Rs.64,100.

Multiplication Factor / Fitment Formula recommended by 7th Pay Commission

Multiplication Factor / Fitment Formula recommended by 7th Pay Commission

7CPC_fitment-formula-7th-CPC


7th CPC recommended the Multiplication Factor proposed is 2.57

Fitment : The starting point for the first level of the matrix has been set at Rs. 18,000. This corresponds to the starting pay of Rs.7,000, which is the beginning of PB-1 viz., Rs.5,200 + GP 1800, which prevailed on 01.01.2006, the date of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations.

Hence the starting point now proposed is 2.57 times of what was prevailing on 01.01.2006. This fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 on account of DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay. Accordingly, the actual raise/fitment being recommended is 14.29 percent.
