Impact of 7th Pay Commission only 25K crore and not 100K crore – Confederation

Impact of 7th Pay Commission only 25K crore and not 100K crore – Confederation

Central Government Employees of Karnataka State has expressed its views that Government of India has to spend an additional Rs.25,000/- crores and not Rs.1,00,000/- crores as a result of implementation of 7th Pay Commission contrary to media reports. This will amount to 0.4 per cent of GDP.

Expenditure towards Salary of Central Government Employees on implementation of 7th Pay Commission will be around 25000 Cr and not Rs.1 lakh Crore as projected by media reports says Confederation
Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, Karnataka State has come up with a detailed report on actual expenditure involved out of 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
Comrades,
There are various reports in the media about the impact of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on the common man and the government resources at large, the reports suggest that amount of Rs.one lakh crores of public money has been spent for implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for 35 lakhs central Government employees, Perhaps the strongest criticism of Pay Commission awards is that they play havoc with government finances and also state government demand support to implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. At the aggregate level, these concerns are somewhat exaggerated and which is totally wrong.

Let us examine the 7th Pay Commission report vide para no 3.65 and 3.66 and the website of Government of India Ministry of Finance Department of Expenditure Pay Research Unit for Brochure on Pay and Allowances of Central Government Civilian Employees visit website PayAllowance2013-14



The 7th Pay Commission report para number 3.65 and 3.66
3.65 The total expenditure on pay and allowances for civil personnel of Central Government in the recent years is brought out in Table 9.

The 7th Pay Commission report para number 3.65 and 3.66

3.65 The total expenditure on pay and allowances for civil personnel of Central Government in the recent years is brought out in Table 9.

Table 9: Expenditure on Pay and Allowances

3.66 The expenditure per capita on pay and allowances for Civil Central Government personnel for FY 2012-13 was Rs..3.92 lakh per annum i.e Rs..32666/- per month.

Add 35% DA for the period 1/4/2013 to 1/1/2016 average salary of Civil Central Government personnel as on 1/1/2016 at 125% DA which works around Rs.37500/- per month (Rs.4.50 lakhs per annum ) without 7th CPC recommendations . i.e., Rs..1.57,000 crores.

Add average 16% wage increase due to 7th Pay Commission which works out to Rs 43500/- per month (Rs.5.22 lakhs per annum) with 7th Pay Commission implementation .

Total Expenditure for 35 lakhs for Civil Central Government personnel for FY 2016-17 is around Rs..1,83,000 crores In respect of pensions expenditure for 55 lakhs pensioners amount is around Rs..81,000/ crores as on 1/1/2016. which is against the revenue receipts of Rs..19 lakh crores. The percentage of revenue receipt and wages is just around 13% of the total revenue is spent on the wages and pension for the Central Government personnel. In fact it is just at 1.3% of the GDP.

This clearly shows that that the increase in impact for the government of India finances is just additional Rs..25,000/- crores not additional Rs..1,00,000/- crores as per the media reports.

The 7th Pay Commission recommendations’ impact need not give jitters to the government because the rise in government wages will amount to only 0.4 per cent of GDP.

One more aspect is that technically, the recommendations of a Central Pay Commission are only for Central Government employees and States are not bound to follow suit. Indeed, up to the 1980s, States constituted their own Pay Commissions and prescribed their own pay scales, based upon their fiscal capacity.

Let us not be carried over by the media or press reports, hence we should educate each and every employee for struggle and so that a decent wage hike is achieved.
Comradely yours

Central Government Staff stir over pay anomalies from June 9

Central Government Staff stir over pay anomalies from June 9

KKN Kutty, national president of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, today said the employees of the Central government would stage a demonstration from June 9 onwards in case the “shortcomings in the seventh pay commission recommendations” were not rectified.

Kutty, while talking to media persons on the sidelines of the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016 in Dehradun, said the seventh pay commission had recommended Rs 18,000 per month as minimum wage whereas it should be Rs 26,000 per month. “Thirty five to 40 per cent positions are vacant in the Central government departments which must be filled at the earliest,” he said while criticizing the government for its outsourcing policy.

“Several issues are there which should be resolved. We have asked the Centre to hold talks with us before June 9, otherwise we will be forced to launch an agitation,” he said. He said it was wrong to link government employees with corruption. “It is in society and there should be a mechanism to check it,” he asserted.
Earlier, while addressing the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016, Kutty called upon the Central government employees to work unitedly towards ensuring justice for them.

Another speaker, Venkatesh Ramakrishnan, said the liberalization policies followed by the rise of communalism in the country had adversely affected the working class. He said the Central government employees were facing challenging times as they were being neglected.

7th Pay Commission Recommendations may be revised upwards by Committee of Secretaries appointed by Government

It is expected that decision of Committee of Secretaries on 7th Pay Commission recommendations would be submitted in the month of June 2016

7th Pay Commission Recommendations may be revised upwards by Committee of Secretaries appointed by Government.

Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha who is heading the Empowered Committee or Secretaries group is likely to hand over a report on the revised pay structures of 7th pay commission recommendations to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley by the end of next month.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said government had requisite fund to implement 7th pay commission award. Cabinet Secretary Sinha will finally make his appearance before the the Empowered Committee or Secretaries group on June 11 to make a proposal on the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission before cabinet nod.

Committee’s decisions on 7th Pay Commission Recommendations is expected to be submitted by June .  The same will be placed before the Cabinet after the finance ministry’s review. We don’t think it will take more time for Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s consideration and the new pay structures will be implemented from July after cabinet nod,” said a top official from the Finance Ministry who did not wish to be named.

The 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice A K Mathur submitted the report on November 19. It had proposed the highest salary at Rs 250,000 and the lowest at Rs 18,000. The commission also recommended 14.27 per cent increase in basic pay, 23.55% overall increase in salary, allowances and pensions.

The increase in allowances has been recommended to the extent of 63% while pension has  been proposed to be raised by 24%. Finance Minister Jaitley is likely to agree with the Secretaries group. “I think it should not be touched again,” the official said. Once the new structure is implemented, salaries of around 48 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners will rise by 30 percent. The Finance Minister already said the 7th pay commission award would not make the commodity prices to go up.

The central government employees and pensioners will also spend more money on a variety of goods after receiving the 7th Commission award with arrears from January 2016. “This means higher consumption similar to what happened in the past. But the previous two Pay Commission awards came with a lag of two years. So the arrears were large.

This time, it will not be so,” says Pronab Sen, former Chief Statistician, government of India and now Country Director, International Growth Centre, a think tank based at LSE, run in partnership with University of Oxford.

The official also agrees with Sen and said there was no possibility of any impact of the report on the market at this stage of implementation as there were no impacts when the Pay Commission had first submitted the report. The government formed a 13 member secretary-level Empowered Committee or Secretaries group headed by Sinha in January to review the report of the 7th Pay Commission before cabinet nod. The 7th pay commission was set up by the UPA government in February 2014. It submitted the report after around 22 months. After getting the 7th pay commission report, the finance minister Jaitley while introducing the Seventh Pay Commission report on November 19, already said that the final decisions on the Seventh Pay Commission report took five and a half months including the process of Secretaries group. Finance Minister also said, government had requisite fund to implement it.


The secretary group is likely to propose pay structure of minimum at Rs 21,000 and the maximum at Rs 2,70,000 Accordingly, the Secretaries group is likely to reach the conclusion to propose 30 percent basic pay raise instead of 14.27 per cent, which was recommended by 7th Pay Commission.

They are also mulling for doubling of existing rates of such allowances and advances, which has been recommended for abolition by the 7th Pay Commission, sources said.
