7th Pay commission faces a thousand challenges

Jaitley, a ray of hope to the Central Government Employees
Seventh pay commission marching towards implication in January 2016, Finance Minister to play a vital role
Tapas Joshi, January 10
New Delhi. New Delhi.
The work of the Seventh Pay commission is still in progress, but this has become a topic of curiosity amidst the Central Government Employees. The Pay commission established in February 2014 has completed a journey of almost one year. It is to be noted that the Seventh Pay commission was established for a period of 15 months, according to which the Pay commission should submit its report before September 2015.
Of all Pay Commissions established till date, the maximum have submitted their reports within a period of 3 years. In spite of the eminent delay in establishment of the Sixth Pay commission, they submitted their report within two years and the government accepted their recommendations without any delay. Technically, the report of the Sixth Pay is believed to be the best report submitted till date as it changed the conventional Pay scales to Pay Band and Grade Pay which was greatly appreciated.
Those who initially criticised the recommendations were also found happy at later stages. There were also a few flaws in the recommendations which still remain intact. The Sixth Pay commission had merged Pay scales to a large extent, this led to a lot of administrative difficulties regarding the performance of grade C employees as this mergence placed many juniors at par in their pay band and grade pay in comparison with their seniors which led to many in-disciplinary issues. This led to unhappiness for some Senior Employees.
Junior employees were happy for a while, but they were permanently deprived from the benefits of Promotion. Similarly, many discrepancies have been noticed in the Sixth Pay Commission and the Pay Commissions before it. The Seventh Pay commission also has a challenge to clear all these discrepancies.
If we consider the Sixth Pay Commission, to a very large extent it has prepared the base for the future Pay Commissions. The Seventh Pay commission practically should have no problem to till the ground given to them by the Sixth Pay Commission, provided they do not have any theoretical objections to the ruleset laid by the Sixth Pay Commission. If the Seventh Pay commission tries not to do anything new, and prepares the fresh Pay scales focusing on clearing the existing shortfalls based on the current inflation and economic norms, the Pay commission can surely prove to be successful to a large extent. If clearing the discrepancies is a Challenge to the Pay Commission, the submission of their Report on time is even a greater challenge.
Whenever it comes to the Seventh Pay commission, it is natural to mention about the Modi Government. In nearly seventh months of Office Holding, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley not only declared Income Tax Exemptions and received the appreciation of employees, but also stated that “If I had more, I would have granted more exemptions” which shows his sympathy towards the working Personnel. It is eminent that the Seventh Pay commission will submit its report by the end of this year.

7th Pay Commission: Four times increase in pay for Central Government Employees expected
Tapas Joshi, New Delhi writes an article about the 7th pay commission pay scale for Central Government employees. We reproduced the article and given under to our readers for easy understanding…
Seventh Pay Commission: Four times increase in pay for Central Government Employees expected.
New Delhi: Tapas Joshi
2016 is a year expected to bring unbound happiness to the Central Government Employees. This year will end a long wait of 10 years, because the recommendations of the Pay Commission will be implemented in January 2016.
The Pay commission was established during the Manmohan Singh Government in February 2014. The deadline for the Pay commission was set to be 15 months. This leads to an expectation for the release of the Pay Commission report by September 2015. If the Memorandum submitted by the Various Employee Organisations is considered, the Pay Commission should provision recommendation for a four-fold increase in the current pay. During its tenure, the Pay Commission will travel to various cities, in addition to meeting the staff of various Employee Organisations. Here it is essential to note that during the sixth pay commission it was recommended to increase the pay of the Central Government Employees three-fold of their current pay.
Primary considerations in Pay Judgement:
The Pay of the Central Government Employees are compared with the Public sector employees such as BHEL, ONGC, etc and also with the Private sector employees. The minimum pay scale of the International Labor Union (ILO) is also considered as a norm. Further, the price of the various daily utility objects is taken into consideration. In the sixth pay commission the Inflation rate as on 01.01.2006 was also considered before putting up recommendations for the fresh Pay scales.
Things to be kept in mind by the Pay commission:
If we talk about the sixth pay commission the ratio of the minimum and maximum Pay was worked around as 1:12 and the minimum pay was decided to be Rs 7100. If in Rs 7100 we include House Rent Allowance, Transport Allowance, Education Allowance etc the figure increases up to Rs 10000.
This time the Dearness Allowance has crossed the figure of 100 percent, and according the Indian Labor Ministry the minimum pay should be Rs 15000 per month. If the inflation and minimum pay are considered, on today’s date the minimum pay should be increased from Rs 7100 to Rs 30000. If in this we include House Rent Allowance, Transport Allowance, Education Allowance etc the figure increases up to Rs 45000.
Thus the Pay of the Central Government Employees is expected to have a four-fold rise. The Central Government Employees are impatiently waiting for 2016, and we are also waiting to see how much do the Pay Commission stand up to the Expectations of the Central Government Employees.

Introduction of postal stamps as RTI fee/cost – seeking comments from public regarding
Government of India

North Block, New Delhi
Dated 14th January, 2015
Subject: Introduction of postal stamps as RTI fee/cost – seeking comments from public regarding
RTI Rules, 2012 prescribe payment of RTI application fee/Cost through four Modes i.e. IPO, Demand Draft, Bankers Cheque and Cash against receipt. Apart from regular modes of payments, Information seekers can use the facility of e-IPO and also use Debit/Credit Card for filing online RTI
2. CIC in its full bench decision in the case No. CIC/BS/C/2013/000149/LS dated 27.08.2013 had inter-alia urged DoPT to consider acceptance of RTI stamps as a mode of payment of RTI Fee and Costs. The issue was examined in consultation with Department of Posts and the latter expressed its inability to print exclusive RTI stamps. Subsequently, Department of Posts recommended use of definitive series of postal stamps which are ubiquitously available in the Post Offices across the country in different denominations. It further added that, the RTI applicants would also need to affix the said stamp(s) on the RTI application. The RTI applicant(s) by putting his signature or thumb impression shall cancel the said postage stamp(s) to prevent it from misuse/re-use.
3. It was decided with the approval of the then MoS (PP) that acceptance of postal stamps as mode of payment of RTI fee and cost would require amendment in the RTI Rules notified on 31.7.2012 only, the recommendations of CIC may be noted and considered as and when amendment to RTI Rules are considered.
4. The CIC in its recent decision dated 12.12.2014 in File No.CIC/SA/C/2014/000038 has again recommended to DoPT to adopt the proposal of the Deptt. of Posts of use of ordinary Postal Stamps for payment of RTI fee.
5. Introduction of Stamps as one of modes of payment for RTI application fee would require amendment to the RTI Rules, 2012. In addition, the following issues need to be sorted out before taking any decision.
i. Use of ordinary postal stamps for the purpose of RTI may lead to accounting problem, as it would not be possible to account amount collected for RTI through ordinary stamps. Section 25(3)(e) of the RTI Act lays down that each public authority is required to communicate to CIC/SIC, as the case may be, the amount of charges collected under this Act for incorporation in their Annual Report.
ii. There is apprehension of misuse of ordinary stamps for the purpose of RTI, in the absence of specific procedure for crossing such stamps.
iii. Whether postal stamps may be considered for initial RTI fees only or for payment of additional fee also.
6. A Committee has been formed to look into the above and other related issues. It has been decided to invite views/suggestions from the citizens in the subject matter, for the consideration of the Committee. The views/suggestions, preferably not exceeding more than one page, may be sent latest by 7.2.2015 through email only to Shri R.K. Girdhar, Under Secretary (RTI), North Block at usrti-doptOmic. in.

Filing of property returns already extended the time limit from 31st December, 2014 to 30th April, 2015.

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashtrpati Bhawan Annexe,
I solicit your kind attention to my letter in No.NC/JCM/2014 dated 16 th December, 2014, wherein we had conveyed the decisions taken at the National Convention of representatives of the organisations participating in the JCM. We are distressed that you have chosen not to respond to our letter till date. We have so far not received any communication from any quarter of the convening of the National Council of the JCM. No effort has also been taken by any Ministry to convene the Departmental Councils.
We have now been given to understand that the Government has taken serious steps to set up a corporation to carry on the functions of the 41 ordnance Factories, presently functioning under the Ministry of Defence. We have also noted that the report of the Committee set up by the Government to corporatize the functions of the Postal Department. The inordinate delay in settling the demands for Interim Relief and Merger of DA is causing distress amongst the Central Government employees. The Railwaymen are particularly agitated over the decision of the Government to induct FDI to the extent of 100% in Railways, which we are aware cannot be done without privatisation of the Railways. The declaration of the Convention, which we had forwarded to you vide our letter cited had amply explained the anguish of the Central Government employees.
In order to register our opposition to the recent decision of the Government to corporatize the functions of the Ordnance factories, we have amended Item No.2 of the charter of demands. We send herewith the revised charter of demands.
The National JCA met today and took note of the silence on the part of the Government to our pleadings. The meeting has, therefore, decided to go ahead with the agitational programmes, the first phase of which will culminate in a massive March to Parliament by Central Government employees on 28th April, 2015. If no settlement is brought about on the 10 point charter of demands, we will be constrained to go for an indefinite strike action, the date of commencement of which will be decided on 28 th April, 2015.

The meeting was chaired by Com. M. Raghavaiah, General Secretary, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen. The meeting made the following observations and took the following decisions:
The Statement made by Shri Narendra Modi, Honourable Prime Minister of the country at Varanasi to the effect that the Railways would not be privatised was misleading and intended to create confusion in the minds of the Railwaymen, especially in the background that the proposal to induct FDI in Railways to the extent of 100% is being pursued vigorously.
The Government has decided to set up a Corporation to carry on the functions of the 41 ordnance factories under the Ministry of Defence.
Except in a few States, the steps required to be taken for form the State level Committees of the JCA have not been undertaken.
In order to expedite the formation of such committee in all States, the NC JCM website will carry the names and addresses of the State leaders of the participating organisations
The Zonal Secretaries of AIRF will be asked to ensure that such committees are formed at all State Capitals before the end of this month and the convention is held on a mutually convenient date for all but before 15th February, 2014.
