Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted

Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted

One of the NJCA leader, On Condition of Anonymity, told that the committee constituted to examine the allowance has finalized its reports and submitted it to the Government on 22nd February 2017.

On asking whether the NJCA knew the details of the committee report, he said that they were not provided with the committee report. But the committee has informed them that their demand on allowance would be considered favorably.

Hence it is expected the HRA will be retained in old rates (Sixth CPC rates) from the beginning itself and will be paid in 7th CPC Pay Scale when revised allowances come into effect. However, the news of revised allowances would be implemented with effect from 1.4.2017 is not reliable. NJCA will not accept this and clearly said that it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016 retrospectively.

X cities- 30%
Y cities- 20%
Z cities- 10%

Transport Allowance may be split into two elements as CCA and TA as it was paid in fifth CPC. The Rates will be delinked from DA and will Fixed in slab rates.

The Government will announce its decision over the committee report after the last phase of state elections ie after 8th March 2017.

Subject: – Settlement of the long pending issues and appropriate recommendations on 7th CPC related matters- regarding

Sir,

We have been directed to refer our letter No: AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/417 dated 17th April, 2016 on the subject mentioned above and state that the employees are totally aggrieved for non-settlement of their grievances for more than one and a half years.

Moreover, large numbers of the issues that were discussed in the meeting held between the official side of CGA office and the National Executive of All India Civil Accounts employees Association under your Chairpersonship on 6th November 2015 are yet to be settled. Further, it was stated in the said meeting that the

“Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure has returned the Cadre Review proposal of Group ‘B’ & ‘C’ cadres of CCAS with the remarks that proposal may be re-examined in terms of instructions contained in their O.M. NO. 5(3)/E.III/97 dated 07.01.1999 and No. 7(1)/E.Coord/2014 dated 29.10.2014. DoE has also informed that the revision of pay in respect of Civil Accounts Employees will not be done in isolation and the same may be viewed and examined in the larger context of Organized Accounts Service as a whole. Therefore, the matter will be examined by DoE, MoF, in a holistic manner keeping in view the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission as well. The Association was therefore asked to wait for the 7th Pay Commission recommendation and the decision of the Government.”

But, we would like to bring the following facts to your kind information –

1. Pending implementation of 7CPC recommendations, the Ministry of Finance has accorded approval to the Cadre Review proposals of the Department of Posts.

2. The C&AG has made his recommendations to the Government for cadre review/ cadre restructuring/ amendments in the Recruitment Rules.

Hence, in view of these facts and as per the DOPT instructions, cadre review of the Gr. B & C employees of Civil Accounts Employees, which should have been done much earlier and before the cadre review of the Gr “A” cadres of Civil Accounts organization was done in 2012-13, needs to be initiated immediately in consultation with the Associations.

Apart from the above, the employees and officers of Civil Accounts organization are yet to learn about the recommendations given by the Controller General of Accounts to the Empowered Committee constituted by the Government for implementing the recommendations of 7CPC.

Therefore, for the purpose of review of the status of the issues discussed on 6th November 20159 (including the issue of Cadre Review) and to be appraised about the recommendations given by the Controller General of Accounts to the Empowered Committee constituted, our National Executive Members wish to meet you on 10th June 2016. We shall be thankful if you kindly accept our proposal and make it convenient to meet us on the proposed date. Time of the meeting may kindly be intimated to us at an early date please.

It may kindly be noted that the issues for discussion in the meeting will be the items forwarded by us through our letter dated 17th April, 2016.

 

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully

Subject: – Settlement of the long pending issues and appropriate recommendations on 7th CPC related matters- regarding

Sir,

We have been directed to refer the letters No; AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/ 229-59 dated 09.03.2016 and No: – AICAEA/HQ/A-2/2016/ 271 dated: 10.03.2016 of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and its subsequent letters dated 31.03.2016, 01.04.2016, 08.04.2016 and 12.04.2016 respectively on the subject mentioned above and state that the opportunities of career advancement of different categories of Civil Accounts employees has been halted as no departmental examination was conducted by the Civil Accounts authorities for last one and a half years. Non-conducting of AAO(Civil) examination from the year 2014 onwards alone has virtually created chain linked adverse affect on totality of the Civil Accounts Employees right from MTS to AAO. None of the categories have been getting their legitimately due benefits of promotion and financial upgradations etc. We have already requested to your good self through our earlier correspondences to kindly conduct the examinations at the earliest so that the grievances of the employees in general are resolved.

Apart from the above, we would also like to state that-

1. Among the items discussed in the meeting held between the official side and the National Executives of the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association under your Chairpersonship on 6th November 2015, though favourable actions on some of the issues have been taken, but majority of the issues are yet to be settled which has generated strong resentment among the employees.

2. Endeavour on the part of the office of the Controller General of Accounts to operate a transfer policy for AAOs and local rotational transfer policies for AAO and Accountant/ Senior Accountant transparently were no doubt tremendously appreciated by the employees. But, the employees are totally disappointed due to the fact that, while these policies have been totally diluted and vitiated on account of prejudiced and biased approaches of the heads of Civil Accounts Departments like PCCAs of MHA, CBEC, CBDT, CCA of Ministry of Urban Development and CA of Ministry of WR etc. and also for their unwanted interferences, the Controller General of Accounts is maintaining total indifference against all these and his office is not at all enforcing the policies effectively and uniformly.

Further, due to sustained and united movements of the Central Government Employees, the Government of India has constituted the Empowered Committee under the Chairpersonship of the Cabinet Secretary to Government of India for sorting out the grievances of the employees on the recommendations of 7 CPC. In terms of the directives of the Empowered Committee, the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association alone was asked by your office to make its submission on the 7th CPC related issues. The Association had accordingly submitted its proposals for improvements in recommendations and it was informally informed to the Association that the proposals have been forwarded to the appropriate higher authorities with proper recommendations. Though the Association offered it’s thanks to your office for the favourable action taken but unfortunately, the requests for (1) Providing a copy of the recommendations made and (2) Meeting the joint delegation of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II and All India Association of Pay and Accounts Officers (Civil) on the CPC related matters are yet to be responded by your office.

We hope your kind self would definitely agree with us that the employees are suffering without any fault of theirs and there are valid grounds for them to become restive. Therefore, the specific issues on which the resentment has been precipitated and in support of which issues the members of our Associations shall resort to a day’s protest Dharna on 6th May 2016 are attached herewith in the form of “CHARTER OF DEMANDS” for your kind perusal.

We on behalf the All India Civil Accounts Employees Associations and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II earnestly request you to kindly intervene personally into the undesirable situation created so that grievances of the employees are resolved at the earliest and peace and tranquility prevail in the organization.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully

Enclo as above

7th Pay Commission on pay and pension: Pensioners to Gain the Most

Based on the 7th Pay Commission data, already pension payments account for a third of the government’s wage bill. That is going to rise sharply over the next 10 years.

pensioners-pay-gain-7thCPC

7th Pay Commission – Pensioners to Gain the Most – While the 7th Pay Commission pay scale increase of serving employees is 16%, pensioners will see a 23.63% rise.

7th Pay Commission on pay and pension: Once the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are implemented, the biggest gainers will be pensioners. While the 7th Pay Commission pay scale increase of serving employees is 16%, pensioners will see a 23.63% rise. However, the big gain per se is in allowances, which rise by as much as 63%. Here is an elaboration of the 7th Pay Commission pension recommendations:

Going by the numbers, pension payments could well be the next time-bomb. Based on the 7th Pay Commission data, already pension payments account for a third of the government’s wage bill. That is going to rise sharply over the next 10 years. It is driven by the fact that 9.48 lakh employees accounting for 29% of the 30.32 lakh employees on the rolls now are in the 50-60-year band. By this time in 10 years, that means the government will need to pay for an additional million pensioners. So, the pension bill will continue to rise – with better health, most people live almost 20 years after retirement.

The Urban Development Ministry will see the sharpest fall (61.3%) followed by the Department of Posts (41.6%). However, the Indian Railways will account for half of the retirees (4.94 lakh). Despite the 37.5% fall in employees, the Indian Railways will still have 9.22 lakh employees if no new ones are hired.

This is also due to the fact that there has been no real move to reduce the government employee base over the years. While there are 33 lakh employees now it was 32.74 lakh in 2006 and 32.31 lakh in 2010. The only relief from the pension bomb will come when those employed after 2004 come to retirement age. These people are covered under the National Pension Scheme where the pensions they receive will depend on the payout they make while being employed. However, these employees will reach the retirement age a good 30 years from now. Check out 7th Pay Commission on pay and pension quick calculator below:

Dept. Employees (in lakh) In 50-60- yr group % share
Railways 13.16 4.94 37.54%
MHA 9.8 0.68 6.94%
Defence (civil) 3.98 1.51 37.94%
Posts 1.9 0.79 41.58%
Urban devp 0.31 0.19 61.29%
Atomic energy 0.32 0.11 34.38%
Health 0.21 0.07 33.33%
Accts & audit 0.48 0.16 33.33%
Revenue 0.96 0.33 34.38%
Others 1.86 0.7 37.63%
Total 32.98 9.48 28.74%

7th CPC Recommendations : Upgradation of GP 4200, 4600 and 4800 for the Employees of the Supreme Court

7th CPC Recommendations : Upgradation of GP 4200, 4600 and 4800 for the Employees of the Supreme Court

Officers and Employees of the Supreme Court : Upgradation of Pay in Selected Posts in Existing GP 2800

Upgradation of pay has been sought for the group of posts in the present pay scale with GP 2800 to GP 4200. These include Junior Court Assistant, Chauffer, Special Process Server, Restorer Gr. I /Library Attendant Gr. I/Gestetner Operator Gr. I.

Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission has noted the recommendations made by the Committee of Judges in this regard. The Committee of Judges after examination of demands made has pointed out that in view of basic qualification, nature of duties and degree of efficiency, integrity and confidentiality the post of Junior Court Assistant can be considered for an upgradation in pay.

The Commission further notes that the educational qualifications for direct recruitment to the post of Junior Court Assistant is a degree from a recognised University and knowledge of computer operations with a stipulated typing speed in computers. The information furnished to the Commission with respect to the Recruitment Rules of various posts also indicates that in all other posts carrying a GP 2800 the educational qualifications is lower than graduation and therefore equating Junior Court Assistants with these posts would not be correct. In view of the foregoing the Commission is in agreement with the views of the Committee of Judges. Accordingly, the Commission recommends upgradation in the pay for the post of Junior Court Assistant to GP 4200 from the existing GP 2800.

Upgradation of Pay in Selected Posts in Existing GP 4200

For the group of posts covering Court Assistant, Personal Assistant, Accountant, Cashier, the Association requested pay parity with the holders of analogous/equivalent posts in the High Court of Delhi, who are drawing pay with GP 4600.

Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission has noted the recommendations made by the Committee of Judges in this regard. The Committee of Judges, after examination of demands made, agrees with the recommendation of upgradation in pay to conform to the pay of the holders of analogous posts in the High Court of Delhi.

The Commission recognises that the Supreme Court is at the apex of the hierarchy of Courts in India and hence its personnel should not be disadvantageously placed vis-à-vis the High Court of Delhi.

Accordingly, the Commission recommends upgradation for the post of Court Assistant, Personal Assistant, Accountant and Cashier to GP 4600 from the existing GP 4200.

Upgradation of Pay in Selected Posts in Existing GP 4600

Upgradation of pay has been sought for pay of the group of posts in the present GP 4600 to GP 4800. These include posts of Private Secretary to Additional Registrar, Sr. Personal Assistant, Senior Court Assistant, Court Associate, Editor of Paper books, Assistant Librarian,
Proof Reader, Assistant Accounts Officer (Concurrent Audit) and Building Supervisor. The justification for upgradation is that the holders of analogous posts in the High Court of Delhi are in GP 4800.

Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission has been informed that the Committee of Judges, after examination of demands made, have endorsed the upgradation in pay to conform with the pay of the holders of analogous posts in the High Court of Delhi.

The Commission recognises that the Supreme Court is at the apex of the hierarchy of Courts in India and hence its personnel should not be disadvantageously placed vis-à-vis the High Court of Delhi. Accordingly, the Commission recommends upgradation in the pay for the post of Private Secretary to Additional Registrar, Sr. Personal Assistant, Senior Court Assistant, Court Associate, Editor of Paper Books, Assistant Librarian, Proof Reader, Assistant Accounts Officer (Concurrent Audit) and Building Supervisor to GP 4800 from the existing GP 4600. However on completion of four years approved service further non-functional upgrade to GP 5400 (PB-2) is also recommended for these posts.

The cadre of the Army consists of:
i. Combat Arms (Armoured Corps, Artillery, Infantry and Mechanised Infantry)
ii. Combat Support Arms (Engineers and Signals)
iii. Specialised Cadres (AMC, ADC, RVC, AEC, CMP and APS)
iv. Logistic and Maintenance Services (ASC, AOC, EME and Pioneers).

Air Force : ‘Airmen’ comprise all ranks of combatants other than commissioned officers in the IAF. They perform a variety of functions ranging from aircrew duties on board helicopters and transport aircraft, maintenance of the most sophisticated and complex aircraft, radar, weapons and other equipment, secretariat and administrative duties involving maintenance of accounts of cash and stores, personnel documents, catering, discipline and medical care.

Navy : Every sailor is basically a seaman, irrespective of the branch to which he belongs or his trade specialisation. Seamanship duties comprise ship husbandry, hull maintenance, handling of small arms and ammunition, elementary store keeping, boat handling, firefighting, nuclear, biological and damage control as also first-aid, besides being proficient in a host of other seamanship activities such as anchor-work, rope-work, replenishment of fuel etc.

Skills

Every soldier is allotted a trade which becomes intrinsically linked to his subsequent career progression. There are numerous trades in the Army, Navy and Air Force. These have been grouped in two pay groups X and Y, as detailed in the table below:

Services Total Number of Trades and % age of Total Strength
X Y
Army 28 (2.58%) 96 (97.42%)
Navy 11 (12.00%) 42 (88.00%)
Air Force 23 (47.72%) 28 (52.28%)

The trades grouped under X require higher entry level qualification (Class XII). Entrants in group X also receive more intensive training. As against this entry level qualification for group Y is Class X only and the training.

Comparison of pay determination before and after 7th Pay Commission

Comparison of pay determination before and after 7th Pay Commission

The Shocking fact of Pay hike recommended by 7th Pay Commission

The Pay hike recommended by 7th Pay Commssion has been discribed as Bonanza by Media

Pay commission said 14.29 % Hike in Pay is recommended, Media said central government employees will get 23.55% hike in salary including allowances.

we will find out the real fact about the so called Bonanza..!

whether the Media claims are true or not through a simple calculation…!

The strength of Group C employees in Central Government is 85%. So we must know what the Pay Hike is recommended for them actually.

But Media give more attention to this 15 % because they have been paid more

It doesnt make sense that the Pay hike recommended for remaining 15 % taken into account. Because they are creamy layer of the Government. The Pay Hike for them also will be decided by them. So the take extar care for not giving more to this 85%.

7th CPC recommendation on Pay Hike is mocking rather than encouraging the Central government employees. See the following example

Assume a govt servant has been appointed in GP 1800 on 1st August of 2015 and he has been provided accomadation in Govt Quarters

His Net Pay for the month of January 2016 in Sixth CPC is given below..

Basic Pay Pay = PB Rs.5200 + GP Rs.1800 = Rs.7000/-

Assuming DA 125% as on 31-1-2016 = Rs.8750/

( Since he hs availed Quarter) HRA = Nil

TA = 600 + DA = Rs.1350

Total Gross Pay = Rs. 17100

Deductions

NPS 10% of basic Pay = 70

CGEGIS = 30

Total deductions (700+30) = 730
Net Pay = 17100-730 = 16370

His Revised 7th CPC Pay as on 31-1-2016

Minimum Basic Pay = Rs. 18000/-

DA = Nil
HRA = Nil
TA = Rs. 1350

Total gross pay = Rs.19350

Deductions

NPS = 1800

CGEGIS = 1500

Total deductions = 3300

Net Pay -= 19350-3300 = 16050

Before 7th Pay Commission his Net pay = Rs. 16370
After 7th Pay commission his Net Pay = Rs. 16050

He will be drawing Rs.320 lesser in 7th Pay Commission revised Pay than from his Sixth CPC pay

Anybody acn calculate from the above example that how much percentage of increase this Goup ‘C’ Government servants get from this 7th CPC bonanza ?

7th Pay Commission : LDC – UDC Issue – Government Stand Reiterated

7TH PAY COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION

LDC-UDC ISSUE-GOVERNMENT STAND REITERATED

On the issue of LDC/UDC 7th Pay Commission reiterated the deceiving stand of the Government. Despite of realizing the issue as genuine, Government had not taken a positive decision at their level. The tens of thousands of LDC & UDC, solely responsible for the smooth running of many of the subordinate offices, were hoping that 7th Pay Commission will study the problem faced by them and take a positive decision. Staff Side JCM having convinced the importance of the issue, had also recommended merger & upgradation of the Grade Pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2800. But here we see that 7th Pay Commission has not taken any decision on the issue except giving some confusing and misleading statements to vindicate the stand taken by the Government as true. Extracts of some of their views on LDC UDC issue spread over various chapters of the reports is given below:

Higher GP 2400 to LDC and consequent upgradation of pay for other civilian posts in the Ministerial hierarchy.

11.22.100 The Academy has urged that LDC should be placed in higher GP 2400 as against the existing GP 1900 at par with grade pay of Data Entry Operator (DEO), on the grounds that both LDC and DEO enter service on the basis of same educational qualification i.e., Class XII and that the functions of LDC are more complex than that of a DEO. This issue has been dealt in Chapter 7.7. Recommendations made there would apply in this case also.

11.52.32 They have demanded upgradation in pay of certain category of non-industrial posts viz., LDC, UDC, Accountant, Junior Head Clerk, Head Clerk, Office Superintendent and Assistant Manager (Admin).

Analysis and Recommendations
11.52.33 The Commission has not received the views of the ministry/department on the issue. However, posts like LDC, UDC, Accountant are common to a number of ministries/ departments. Recommendations regarding their pay are contained in Chapter 7.7 and Chapter 11.35. The Commission does not find any justification for increase in pay scale of the other cadres.

But in Chapter 7.7 no direct recommendation except to decline the demand of LBSNAA to increase the promotional quota of MTS to LDC, is visible. The extract of Para 7.7.37 is give below:

Analysis and Recommendations
7.7.37 Looking at the qualification requirements and their job profile, the Commission does not recommend any changes in the pay structure or the promotional prospects of the MTS. Regarding MTS in Delhi Police, the Commission is of the view that since MTS is a common category, any special dispensation to MTS in Delhi Police is not justified. In so far as the MTS of LBSNAA are concerned, the Commission notes as per the recruitment rules for LDC, presently only 5 percent of MTS can get promoted to LDC through limited departmental examination. However, since the government has stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, their demand cannot be accepted.

LDCs
11.35.27 There are demands that 50 percent posts of LDCs be earmarked for filing up by promotion/departmental examination by MTS. It has been argued that the educational qualification for the post of MTS is Class X and they are recruited through SSC for performing the work of Peon, Mali, Cobbler, and Sweeper etc. Since most of the MTS join the post with higher qualification of Higher Secondary and Graduation, there is high rate of attrition in the MTS cadre.

Analysis and Recommendations
11.35.28 As per the recruitment rules for LDC, presently 5 percent of MTS can get promoted to LDC through limited departmental examination. Since government has already stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, this demand cannot be accepted. Moreover enhancement of promotional quota is an administrative matter to be considered by the relevant
administrative ministry.

Between the lines it can be read that the Government prevented the 7th Pay Commission to not consider the LDC/UDC issue positively and reiterated the wrong statement of the Government that that Government of India has stopped direct recruitment of LDC through Staff Selection as its recommendation. But the fact is that Staff Selection Commission is frequently conducting recruitment for the post of LDC and without the permission of the Government how they can done at their own. Combined higher secondary examination for the selection of LDC also has been conducted recently. If we take the intention of Government of phasing out the LDC post as true, then where is the alternative recommendation? Who will do the arduous work done by the young and energetic LDCs in the subordinate offices? It is to be noted that the normal ratio of LDC and UDC in subordinate offices is 5:2 and thus LDCs have been allocated responsible sections and in many smaller offices LDC alone is handling the work of entire Administration.

On the other hand rejecting Central Secretariat Clerical service demand of parity with DEO the commission observes “Even though the entry requirements are similar, historically the pay scales of the two posts have been different. Besides, they comprise two distinct cadres with different set of roles and responsibilities. Hence, the demand for parity of pay of LDC with DEOs cannot be acceded to by the Commission.”(Para 11.35.38).

Our view is that historically these cadres may be different set of roles but the fact is that functions of LDC are more complex than that of DEO and same was brought before the commission by various Associations/Administrative Authorities. Earlier pay Commissions have fixed Pay Scale to DEO considering their work on computer. But today LDCs are more expertise in computer than DEO for doing work in computer, but the demand of parity with DEO is rejected. Extract of Para 11.35.38 is given below:

Central Secretariat Clerical Service
11.35.38 The Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS) consists of the following grades:
i. Upper Division Clerk (GP 2400)
ii. Lower Division Clerk (GP 1900)
LDC and Data Entry Operator (DEO)
11.35.39 It has been demanded that LDC of CSCS drawing pay in GP 1900 be placed in GP 2400 at par with the DEOs on the grounds that post VI CPC, the entry requirements for the two posts is almost similar.

Analysis and Recommendations
11.35.40 Even though the entry requirements are similar, historically the pay scales of the two posts have been different. Besides, they comprise two distinct cadres with different set of roles and responsibilities. Hence, the demand for parity of pay of LDC with DEOs cannot be acceded to by the Commission.

From the above it is clear that Government is adamant on not granting pay scale to LDC & UDCs in subordinate offices at par with the duties assigned to them. Even though the 7th CPC claimed that they have recommended pay scales on the principle of equal pay for equal work, the genuine issue of LDC/UDC is ignored. Thus we are forced to represent against the recommendation to the Government/JCM (Staff Side). All our LDC/UDC friends are requested to raise the issue in their respective Association/Office to force them to represent the issue to the implementation committee for consideration. Also please join all action programmes including strike action, called by the JCM (Staff Side), as published in this web site from time to time, to combat the situation.

7th CPC Pay Fixation with examples

7th CPC Pay Fixation with examples

Pay Fixation in the New Pay Structure : The fitment of each employee in the new pay matrix is proposed to be done by multiplying his/her basic pay on the date of implementation by a factor of 2.57.

The figure so arrived at is to be located in the new pay matrix, in the level that corresponds to the employee’s grade pay on the date of implementation, except in cases where the Commission has recommended a change in the existing grade pay. If the identical figure is not available in the given level, the next higher figure closest to it would be the new pay of the concerned employee. A couple of examples are detailed below to make the process amply clear.

The pay in the new pay matrix is to be fixed in the following manner:

Step 1: Identify Basic Pay (Pay in the pay band plus Grade Pay) drawn by an employee as on the date of implementation. This figure is ‘A’.

Step 2: Multiply ‘A’ with 2.57, round-off to the nearest rupee, and obtain result ‘B’.

Step 3: The figure so arrived at, i.e., ‘B’ or the next higher figure closest to it in the Level assigned to his/her grade pay, will be the new pay in the new pay matrix. In case the value of ‘B’ is less than the starting pay of the Level, then the pay will be equal to the starting pay of that level

Example I
i. For example an employee H is presently drawing Basic Pay of Rs.55,040 (Pay in the Pay Band Rs.46340 + Grade Pay Rs.8700 = Rs.55040). After multiplying Rs.55,040 with 2.57, a figure of Rs.1,41,452.80 is arrived at. This is rounded off to Rs.1,41,453.

ii. The level corresponding to GP 8700 is level 13, as may be seen from Table 4, which gives the full correspondence between existing Grade Pay and the new Levels being proposed.

iii. In the column for level 13, the figure closest to Rs.1,41,453 is Rs.1,41,600.

iv. Hence the pay of employee H will be fixed at Rs.1,41,600 in level 13 in the new pay matrix as shown below:

As part of its recommendations if Commission has recommended any upgradation or downgrade in the level of a particular post, the person would be placed in the level corresponding to the newly recommended grade pay.

Example II
i. Take the case of an employee T in GP 4200, drawing pay of Rs.20,000 in PB-2. The Basic Pay is Rs.24,200 (20,000+4200). If there was to be no change in T’s level the pay fixation would have been as explained in Example I above. After multiplying by 2.57, the amount fetched viz., Rs.62,194 would have been located in Level 6 and T’s pay would have been fixed in Level 6 at Rs.62,200.

pay matrix examples-3

ii. However, assuming that the Commission has recommended that the post occupied by T should be placed one level higher in GP 4600. T’s basic pay would then be Rs.24,600 (20000 + 4600). Multiplying this by 2.57 would fetch Rs.63,222.

iii. This value would have to be located in the matrix in Level 7 (the upgraded level of T).

iv. In the column for Level 7 Rs.63,222 lies between 62200 and 64100. Accordingly, the pay of T will be fixed in Level 7 at Rs.64,100.

7th Pay Commission may consider pay ratio of the pay of the bottom paid employees to the pay of the highest paid officials will come down to 1:9 from 1:12

7th pay commission7th Pay Commission – Curtain Raiser –  “The Seventh Pay Commission may consider pay ratio of the pay of the bottom paid employees to the pay of the highest paid officials will come down to 1:9 from 1:12″, sources indicate.

The government constitutes the Pay Commission almost every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often states also implement the panel’s recommendations after some modifications.

Headed by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, the four-member 7th Pay Commission was appointed in February 2014 and the commission will hand over its recommendations to government within December 31, 2015.

Though the Official recommendations are yet to be submitted to the Government, there are many flares going around, some may be true and some may be flaws.

However, at the end of the day, it is the so called ‘sources’ who give some hint. The following is the latest the sources indicate…..

  1. The commission may recommend government to ask Information and Technology department, whether it is possible to have systems in place for monitoring and supervising work being done remotely by disabled and women central government employees.
  2. “As flexi working hours will allow women central government employees to strike a balance between her professional and family responsibility, maintain healthy lifestyles and contribute to parenting well, it is recommended for the same and urge upon the government to work out the modalities in this direction.”
  3. Women employment under central government has been estimated to the tune of 3.37 lakh, which is 10.93 percent of the total regular central government employment, according to census of central government employees as on March 31, 2011.
  4. “We are looking at whether it is technologically possible to allow disabled and women employees for working from home,” said the source. “A need was felt to provide work from home facility to persons with disabilities and women to enable them to effectively discharge their duties.,” he added.
  5. The Pay Commission is likely to recommend increase 40 percent salaries hike of central government employees on average, the full implementation of which would raise the central government spending on salary and allowance Rs 1,00,619 crore.
  6. The commission may recommend Rs 20,000 as salary for those in the bottom grade and maximum Rs 180,000 for Secretary level officers. The sources in the panel said pay parity ratio of mid-level tier officers will be maintained with the bottom grade.
  7. Earlier, all pay commissions had not only recommended for good salary to top central government officials but also considered the disparity ratio between its highest and lowest paid employees.
  8. For instance, in 1948, the post-tax salary of the highest paid government official was Rs 2,263 which was 41 times higher than the Rs 55 paid to the lowest earning employee. With subsequent pay commissions the ratio was reduced to about 1:12 in 2006.
  9. “The Seventh Pay Commission may consider pay ratio of the pay of the bottom paid employees to the pay of the highest paid officials will come down to 1:9 from 1:12″, sources indicate.
  10.  The first pay commission was recommended Rs 55 salary to the lowest earning employee, second Rs 80, third Rs 185, fourth Rs 750, fifth Rs 2550 and sixth Rs 6660.
  11. “However, the Seventh Pay Commission is likely to recommend Rs 20,000 salary for lowest paid employees and Rs.1,80,000 for highest paid officials, “.
  12. Grade Pay was derived from USA and it has increased in prominence in the early 21st century in USA. Federal employees in USA at all levels are paid based on Grade Pays. The six pay commission followed them. A grade pay is a structured pay format where employees are placed at a given pay level based on their level of education and work experience related to the position.
  13. “Central government has 15 grade pays now from Rs 1,800 to Rs 12,000 for job level pay variance of its employees. Generally, multi tasking staff (MTS) and clerical jobs that require formal education, just a high school or higher secondary, who are at are at the lower levels from grade pays 1,800 to 2,000.
  14.  Every employee does not get promotion in time. So, if Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme is not maintained it will be seriously affected,” the sources said.
  15. Accordingly, the sources said the Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme is likely to be kept the current status quo.
  16. Sources say, rather than hiking pay and allowances, the panel is focused on making employees more efficient, modern and valuable. ‘The commission was created to hike salaries and allowances for central government employees but the commission now is actually focused on “efficiency, technology, skills and Pay link with productivity.’
  17. The central government employees federation strongly believe that the 7th pay commission cannot recommend revising the retirement age of central government employees, since it does not fall under the purview of 7th Pay Commission. It is the central Government which makes such decisions. Yes true, but it is under purview, sources indicate.
  18. The Finance ministry has already opened its stand saying, the Seventh Pay Commission will be mindful of the fiscal concerns of the government while giving its report on new pay scales and remunerations for central government employees and pensioners. Sources indicate, hence the Finance ministry has a role to play in the final report of the 7th Pay Commission.
  19. The pay panel will ask the central government to urge the insurance industry to come up with feasible health insurance solution for the central government employees and pensioners. The IRDA, the insurance regulatory body of India, will be compelled to ask the health insurance companies to offer a basic insurance to every central government employee and pensioner.
  20. Health insurance would be available for central government employees and pensioners till death, the insured employees and pensioners will have to pay 50% of the premium from their salaries and pensions and the remaining 50% premium may be paid by the central government.
  21. The CGHS is financed mainly through the Centre’s tax revenues. Though beneficiaries do contribute a share of their wages towards premium, ranging from Rs 600 to Rs 6,000 a year depending on their pay scale, this accounts for just about 5 per cent of the total expenditure. The government shells out the remaining 95 per cent. Now the Government is looking for ways to end the CGHS in its current form and to move to an insurance based health scheme to cut costs.

7th Pay Commission News: Non-secretariat staff upset over pay disparity with secretariat staff

Seventh Pay Commission: Non-secretariat staff upset over pay disparity with secretariat staff


New Delhi: As the Seventh Pay Commission is likely to submit its report on raising the salaries and allowances for central government employees to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley within December, non-central secretariat staff across the country are a seething lot.

In fact, the Assistants and Section Officers get pay grade Rs 4600 and Rs 4800 in central Secretariat service while the Assistants and Section Officers of non-central secretariat service get pay grade Rs 4200 and Rs 4600 respectively. Not only this but also the non-functional pay scale of Rs 15600-39100 (PB-3)+Rs 5400 (Grade Pay) is admissible to the Section Officers of the central Secretariat service on completion of 4 years service in that grade but no such system for the Section Officers of non-central secretariat service and this has led to much heartburn of non-central secretariat staff.

Non-central secretariat staff reiterated their demand to ensure parity with the central Secretariat staff, they seemed unsure about whether or not the Seventh Pay Commission would accept their pay anomalies which, they added, they had demanded such type of pay parity before Sixth Pay Commission also and the commission accepted it but the government didn’t give its nod about it.

Before Sixth Pay Commission implementation, the respective pay scales of Rs 6500-10500 and 5000-8000 existed for Assistants in central Secretariat and non central Secretariat and pay scales 7500-12000 and Rs 6500-10500 existed for Section Officers in central Secretariat and non central Secretariat. The Section Officers in central Secretariat also got the pay scale of Rs.8000-13500 on completion of four years service in the lower scale of 7500-12000 while pay scale of Section Officers of non-central secretariat service was never upgraded in the same post.

A newly recruited Group A officer begins with the pay scale of Rs 15600-39100 (PB-3)+Rs 5400 (Grade Pay) but central Secretariat service staff begin their group A service on the promotion of Under Secretary with the pay scale of Rs 15600-39100 (PB-3)+Rs 6600 (Grade Pay).

Complaints have been raised against the above the anomalies in the Seventh Pay Commission.

Alleging that the central government has taken a number of steps time to time to give higher pay to the central Secretariat service staff at the cost of non-central secretariat service staff.

The non-central secretariat service staff raised their voice to get paid equally as their counterparts central Secretariat staff before Seventh Pay Commission. The Seventh Pay Commission is likely to advice to make a equal in pay disparity with central secretariat staff but it is the big matter, will the government accept it without a question?

A Readers’ concerns of false news about 7th pay commission recommendation

A Readers’ concerns of false news about 7th pay commission recommendation

 

One of our readers Shri.Jai Kishan Desais‘ concerns of false News items posted in media recently about 7th pay commission recommendations is given below..

 

“….The Central Government employees are fed up with the false news items that keep coming about 7th Pay Commission which are published in Dailies and blogs and in Social Media recently. Baseless Predictions, groundless assumptions, imaginary calculators, truth less articles and to this extreme… Dubious Projects are also being published about 7th Pay commission recommendation

 

What is the reason behind these false report keep coming in News Media and Blogs? What is the intention which prompt them to publish these rubbish articles regarding 7th pay commission in their websites?

The intention behind publishing these article is not to give the correct information to central government employees but promoting their websites using the trending news and key words. Among central government employees the attracting word now is 7th pay commission, 7th pay commission pay scale and date of submission of 7th pay commission report.

 

Recently the articles which have been published in some leading news websites showed their lack of knowledge in the matters of service condition of central government employees and 7th pay commission.

The main focus of these articles are attracting people to their website and to increase the ranking in search results. Merely promoting their websites in search results, they started publishing articles which has no value and bearing misleading facts. The same old story repeated in every articles published

 

Recently many articles, which are published in websites about the recommendation of 7th pay commission, are nothing more than gimmicks. One article posted in a blog says ….

 

7th pay commission recommendations for …

 

> Children education Allowance will be Rs.40 to 50

7th Pay Commission may submit its report before 30.9.2015 – DREU

7th Pay Commission may submit its report before 30.9.2015 – DREU

Can We Expect 7th CPC Recommendations soon?

7th CPC may not delay its submission

Though Central Government decided to extend 4 months life of Pay Commission, it appears that it was in the background of negotiations with Armed Forces Veterans for referring OROP issue to CPC. Now in the background of across the table settlement of OROP, Govt too not issued any orders for time extn. CPC Chairman was averse to delaying his report. Comrade R.Elangovan DREU Working President analyses the situation nicely about possibilities of submission before 39.09.2015. I do agree with this assessment. More over the postponement of SCOVA meeting scheduled in September also indicates the probability of submission by end of September. I am reproducing Elangovan’s note for all to study! – KR GS AIPRPA

7TH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION MAY SUBMIT ITS REPORT BEFORE 30TH SEPTEMBER 2015

1. Sri A.K. MATHUR,chairman , 7th cpc told the press on 24th August that he will submit his report before 30th September.

2. Cabinet decided on 26th September to extend the tenure of 7th cpc up to 31-12-2015 which raised the suspicion that the submission of the report may be delayed.

3. But so far, until today, the finance ministry has not issued the extension order by notification.

4. The cabinet decision for extension was taken in the context of one rank one pension issue. The government wanted to refer the issue to 7th cpc. But the veterans did not agree to the suggestion. Now the issue has been settled outside the 7th cpc. Hence the need for the extension becomes unwarranted. It is why i think the finance ministry has not issued the extension order and the term as of now has ended on 27th August. 7th cpc website also has not posted any extension of their tenure as no order exists for that.

5. Now cabinet has taken early decision on 1st july 2015 da so that the 7th cpc can include this da to evolve the formula for revision on 1-1-2016. You are aware that there will be no da on 1-1-2016 either of 6th cpc or of 7th cpc.

6. Government also has indicated the amount what is feasible and desirable to them through Arun jaitely’s medium term expenditure framework statement by suggesting an increase of about Rs 15000 crores which will be 25% of the basic pay. Even for 40% Rs 24000 cr is needed.Our demand is for 152% more over the existing 219%. Any increase can be possible out of the united struggle.Seriously prepare for the united struggle.

7. Under these circumstances i presume the 7th cpc may submit its report before or on 30th September 2015.

R.ELANGOVAN,

10-9-2015 WORKING PRESIDENT, DREU
