Comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government

LDC-UDC ISSUE:
The comments of Shri George Antony, Kalpakkam on the Memorandum submitted to the 7th Pay Commission by this Association is given below: Shri Antony has made a comparative study on the pay scales of LDC & UDCs of Kerala State and Central Government wherein it has seen that the LDC/UDC posted in Central Government are being paid much less pay than the pay of LDC/UDC of Kerala State.

All our friends are requested to send useful material in support of the demands put up by us to the 7th CPC to this Association so that the same may be used during oral evidence.

TKR Pillai

I have gone through your memorandum to 7th CPC. After analyzing the past pay commissions and various state government pay commissions, I have observed some facts which I would like to share with you. This may be useful for your meeting with 7th CPC in the nearby future. The observations are listed below for your consideration. 1) There is a general conception that central gov. employee’s pay is more than state gov. employee’s pay. But this is not true in many cases. Kerala gov. employee’s pay is more than central gov. employee’s pay in many equivalent posts like LDC, UDC etc.

Representation of Bank and Insurance Employees

The Government has received representation/memorandum from employees of nationalized banks and Government Insurance Companies regarding their salaries, pension and other emoluments due to the employees/officers.

The wage revision exercise in respect of employees of PSBs is undertaken through a bipartite negotiation process between Indian Banks’ Association (IBA), representing management of banks who have mandated it to negotiate on their behalf and the Unions/Associations of bank employees. The last meeting between IBA and Unions/Associations took place on 13.6.2014.

In respect of the current wage revision of insurance companies, Central Government has already requested Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) and General Insurers’ (Public Sector) Association of India (GIPSA), coordination body of four public sector general insurance companies and General Insurance Corporation (GIC) to start wage revision consultation with their employee’s unions/associations. This information was given by the Minister of State for Finance, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
