7th Pay Commission: Resentment over non-formation of High Level Committee


7th Pay Commission: Resentment over non-formation of High Level Committee

New Delhi: The central government employees union expressed its resentment over the non-formation of High Level Committee for reviewing the minimum pay and allowances.

The National Joint Council Action (NJCA), a confederation of 3.3 million central government employees, has been one of the most vocal protesters of increasing minimum pay Rs 18,000 since the the government implemented minimum pay from Rs 7000 to Rs 18,000.

The Central government employees’ Unions had been pressing for fixing “anomalies” in the pay scale. They were demanding minimum pay Rs. 26,000 instead of Rs 18,000 with 3.68 fitment factor, day after the cabinet approval the 7th pay commission recommendations. The cabinet approved it on June 29.

The Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu then stepped in and assured the unions leaders “the issues raised by them would be considered by the High Level Committee, which will soon be set up and the government will take steps accordingly.”

The unions leaders said, “three and half months was passed, no High Level Committee has been formed while The Finance Ministry issued a press statement in this regard on July 7, confirming the assurance and stated that a High Level Committee will be constituted. The above ministers also assured that the favourable decision will be taken within four months.”

The Central government employees Unions not only demanded hiking in pay scales but also asked the other anomalies in 7th pay commission recommendations like abolition of some allowances that should be fixed.
The government hasn’t honour its group of ministers assurance till date, so the central government employees unions say they must lead their march to Parliament on December 15.

The leaders of the central government employees unions have also called on all employees to join the march in demand of hike in minimum pay and other demands.
