Finance Ministry has not issued orders extending the 7th CPC benefit to employees of Autonomous bodies and Board


Finance Ministry has not issued orders extending the 7th CPC benefit to employees of Autonomous bodies and Board

AVOID INORDINATE DELAY IN EXTENDING THE BENEFITS OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016 TO THE EMPLOYEES OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AUTONOMOUS BODIES AND BOARDS CONSTITUTED STATUTORILY

The benefits of the 7th CPC has not yet been extended to the personnel working under : autonomous bodies and Boards, though it was constituted statutorily. During the previous wage revisions, they have been allowed to enjoy the benefits within one month of release of the Government Notification on Revised Pay Rules.

Employees and Pensioners of more than 600 Autonomous bodies and Boards etc. are eagerly waiting for the last more than two months, for revised pay structure implementation in their respective institutions.

Like most of the Central Government departments, since most of the autonomous bodies and Boards did not have much fund to spare for payment of revision of pay hike, they have to depend upon their Ministries concerned. In the case of Ministries also, the budget allotment is not sufficient to meet its own needs satisfactorily and are starving. It is in this background the Finance Ministry's stand becomes crucial. During 6th CPC, the Finance Ministry has given clearance without much delay. The present delay has become a cause of concern for the employees and pensioners.

Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers has already taken up their case with the Government, but till this date the Finance Ministry has not issued orders extending the 7th CPC benefit to employees of Autonomous bodies and Board. The Confederation urges upon the Central Government to expedite action in this regard and to end the uncertainty and anxiety among a large section of employees and pensioners.

7th Pay Commission: Central Govt employees to discuss allowances on October 24 and 25


The finance ministry had recently issued a notification abolishing seven allowances as proposed by the 7th Central Pay Commission.

The Central government employees are apparently upset with the Narendra Modi government abolishing seven allowances hitherto paid to them, and are planning to discuss the issue in about 10 days. It may be recalled that the union finance ministry had issued a notification recently announcing the abolishment of seven allowances as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC).

The Confederation of Central Government Employees said that a meeting scheduled on Thursday (October 13) to take up the issue between the secretary (personnel), government of India and the Staff Side, National Council JCM, will now be held on October 25.

"I am directed to inform you that, the meeting under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Personnel) with the Staff Side, National Council JCM, to firm-up views of the Staff Side (JCM) on various allowances pertaining to DoP&T and also meeting of the Standing Committee, which were scheduled to be held on 13.10.2016 have been postponed.

"They will now be held at 3.00 p.m and 4.30 p.m respectively on 25.10.2016 vide Dy. Secretary (JCA) letter No. 6/8/2016-JCA 2 dated 5.10.2016 (already mail on 10.10.2016)," the Confederation of Central Government Employees said in a communication addressed to Standing Committee Members of the National Council (Staff Side) JCM.

A day prior to that, an Internal Meeting of the Standing Committee Members of the National Council (Staff Side) JCM will be held in New Delhi to discuss the matter, the Confederation of Central Government Employees said.

The abolished allowances include festival advance, bicycle advance and advance of leave salary among others, while those that have been retained are advances for medical treatment, travelling allowance for family of deceased, travelling allowance on tour or transfer and leave travel concession (LTC).
In its report, the pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others after examining 196 allowances.

A study by Tata Strategic Management Group had estimated the quantum of allowances at Rs. 34,000 crore. This could change if the committee differs from the hike proposed by the 7th CPC.

The recommendations of the 7th CPC cover 47 lakh Central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.

Armed Forces to get 10% Arrears before October 30 : The defence ministry has said a pending issuance of the pay commission notification has been sanctioned by the president on ad-hoc basis


Armed Forces to get 10% Arrears before October 30 : The defence ministry has said a pending issuance of the pay commission notification has been sanctioned by the president on ad-hoc basis.

Even as the Central government and the three armed forces chiefs are trying to sort out a dispute over the new pay grades for the army, navy and the air force, the central government has planned a temporary payment for the armed forces.

The defence ministry has said a “pending issuance” of the pay commission notification has been sanctioned by the president on ad-hoc basis. The arrears will be 10 percent of the current pay drawn by the soldiers, which would be calculated from January 2016.

This means all the soldiers are set to receive roughly one month’s salary. The government is trying to ensure that the arrears are reflected in salary slips before October 30 (Diwali).

According to media reports, the army, navy, and the air force personnel (unlike the civil service) have neither received their arrears arising out of the pay-commission order, nor have their new salary scales come into force. The delay is due to the three service chiefs’ intervention seeking correction in the anomalies in the compensation structure for the forces.

The service chiefs have said that the services will not implement the pay commission’s recommendations until and unless the anomalies, which include those related to disability and pay pensions, are resolved.
In other news, the government on Monday refuted media reports, which suggested that the disability pension scheme for the armed forces had been cut. Government sources cited by a leading daily claimed that the disability pension for sepoys had increased by Rs 2,700 per month, for havaldars by Rs 1,450 per month and for naiks by Rs 2,300 per month post the implementation of the 7th pay commission.

Media reports indicated that the government has notified of a new set of rules for granting disability pensions to the armed forces. The new pension calculation method replaces the decade-old system put in place by the sixth pay commission (CPC) according to which, the pensions arising by disability aggravated by military services/wars were calculated on percentage basis on the last pay drawn.

7th Pay Commission : Central Government Employees Fed up : As Govt Crawls on Allowances, Wage Revision Issues

7th Pay Commission : Central Government Employees Fed up : As Govt Crawls on Allowances, Wage Revision Issues

Once again Central government employees are ready to take on the government and are preparing to strike work as government remains slow in revising the 7th Pay Commission's recommendations on allowances, minimum wage and fitment formula.

The government employees are ruing the fact that no decision has taken place on Allowances so far. The Secretary ( Personnel) was to have a meeting with the Secretary, Staff Side, on October 13, to firm up the view on various allowances pertaining to Department of Personnel & Training. The meeting has been postponed to October 25.

It was expected that the recommendations of allowance committee will be made in October 2016 , with the postponement of meetings now we can expect the allowances committee to submit its report in November 2016. said the Confederation of Central Government Employee and Workers of Karnataka State.

The employees are also complaining that the government has so far not set up the high level committee on minimum wage, fitment formula revision and other main demands of central government employees as assured by Cabinet Ministers in July 2016.

When central government employees rejected the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations and threatened to strike work, government,announced to set up a high level committee within a period of four months, and look into the issue of wage revision.

The Central Government has shown urgency in issuing orders on advances, but the same urgency is not shown in case of issue of orders on allowances and revision of minimum wage, fitment formula which will benefit lakhs of Central Government employees, added the confederation.

The employees are planning to carry out demonstrations on October 20 and once again try to reach out to the Prime Minster, Home Minister, Finance Minister and all Department heads. The employees are willing to strike work post December 15, if their demands remain ignored.
