Pay Anomaly in respect of Maj Generals and Lt Generals promoted before 01/01/2016

1. Consequent upon implementation of 7th Pay Commission Orders, Maj Generals promoted after 01/01/2016 are drawing more pay than the officers in the same Corps, who were promoted as Maj Generals prior to 01/01/2016. Hence stepping up of pay of Maj Generals promoted prior to 01/01/2016 has been carried out, at par with the pay from the date of promotion of Maj General of that Corps, promoted after 01/01/2016 based on seniority list received from ADGPS . Subsequent increments have been granted thereafter and the pay also revised on promotion to the rank of Lt General, wherever applicable.

2 (a) Consequent upon implementation of 7th Pay Commission Orders, Lt Generals (HAG) promoted after 01/01/2016 are drawing more pay than the Lt Generals (HAG), in same Corps, promoted before 01/01/2016. The case are under examination for stepping up of pay of Lt Generals (HAG) promoted before 01/01/2016, at par with pay from the date of promotion of Lt Generals (HAG), in that Corps, promoted after 01/01/2016.

 Minimum wage and fitment formula hike issues

There are various reports in the news media, print media & social media regarding the hike in the minimum wage of Central Government employees from the existing Rs 18,000/-  to Rs 21,000/- and fitment formula from 2.57 to 3.00, which shall be implemented from 1st January 2018. The same shall be announced in the National Anomaly Committee due on 9th of October.

Comrades, 
We cannot confirm this news, comrades we should concentrate on struggle path as the Confederation has given the series of programs , I hope the Government will implement the hike in minimum wage for CG employees and revise the fitment formula also from the existing 2.57 to 3.00 even though the Staff side JCM has demanded Rs 26,000/ as minimum wage and fitment formula of 3.56 , this hike should be from 1/1/2016 not 1/1/2018 as per media reports.

In fact the Central Government has to take the political decisions on the wage hike , in fact the group of ministers of the Central Government have agreed to raise the minimum wage for CG employees on 30th June 2016 . I hope the commitment of the union minsters shall be honoured now.

Secondly the economy of the country which was going very well during past three years has showed down ward trend in last one year as the GDP which was at 9.1 in 2015-16 has reduced to 5.7 in 2017-18 .The economic activity has to take place, it is also observed during the past one year, in spite of economic recessions, the Government revenue collection has increased considerably. To improve the economic activity of the country and increase the GDP the Central Government should spend its funds which is available with them .

If the Central Government increases the minimum wage and fitment formula for its employees, the Central Government employees gets back 40% of the wage increase through the Income Tax and GST . So hardly a Government servant is left out with 60% wage hike , here also he spends the amount credited to him , as such an economic activity is induced in the public which will help to create more demand and employment activity.

I hope the Central Government takes a political decisions on increase of minimum wage hike and fitment formula for more than one crore employees which will also benefit the public and the CG employees.
