7th Pay Commission Minimum Pay Calculation: Comparison of Methodology for calculation of minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017

7th Pay Commission Minimum Pay Calculation: Comparison of Methodology for calculation of minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017

7th-Pay-Commission-Minimum-Pay-Calculation

Comparison of Minimum Pay

Comparison of Minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017.

Pay Commission Objective: It is the endeavour of every pay commission to ensure that the pay and allowances of employees should be ‘fair and reasonable’. The pay structure should also motivate the employees to reasonable levels of performance in the tasks assigned to them, so that the general public derive the benefit of their service as intended.

7th CPC of Central Government: The Central Government has been following the practice of pay revision for employees once in ten years. Pay scales of the Central government employees have been revised with effect from 1.1.2016 based on the report of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The revised minimum pay effective from 01.01.2016 is 2.57 times the pre-revised basic pay. The minimum pay of the central employees has been worked out at Rs.18,000/- per month and represents a real increase of 14.29% of the pre-revised wages. The multiplication factor adopted for revising all the other scales ranges between 2.57 and 2.72 resulting in maximum pay of Rs.2,05,400 corresponding to the highest pre-revised pay scale other than the apex pay scale of Rs.80,000 which is raised to Rs.2,25,000. The Cabinet Secretary’s pay is fixed at Rs.2,50,000.

Employees Associations (Staff side JCM) have also sought minimum pay revision to Rs.26,000 with effect from 01.01.2016.

Pay Revision of various State Governments

Government of Kerala Pay Scales: The revised pay structure introduced by the Government of Kerala witheffect from 1.7.2014 is based on the recommendations of the 10th PayRevision Commission and relates to index level of 239.92 points ofAIACPI (IW). Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 16500/-

The rates of increment range from Rs.500 to Rs.2,400. The payment of DA formula is unaltered and continues to be as per the central government formula to neutralise the price rise over and above the 239.92 points twice in a year.

Andhra Pradesh Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Andhra Pradeshon the basis of the recommendation of 10th Pay Revision Commissionrelates to index level of 220.61 points of AIACPI (IW), Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 13000/-

The HRA ranges from 30% to 12% of basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.20,000 depending upon the classification of places and pay.

Karnataka Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Karnataka on the basis of the recommendation of 6th Pay Revision Commission relates to index level of 276.9 of AIACPI (IW).

Costs of consumable items obtained from the Department of Economics & Statistics, Government of Karnataka are utilised for their calculation.

CLICK HERE FOR REPORT 
http://www.finance.kar.nic.in/6thPay/6thPayComReport.pdf

(For English version read from page number 135 on wards)

The 6th pay commission appointed by the Karnataka Government recommended a 30% increase in the salaries of around 5,20,000 government employees and 73,000 employees from “aided institutions”.

The revision of pay and pension is to come into effect from 1 July 2017 with benefits paid from 1 April 2018. The Group “D” minimum basic pay is fixed at Rs 17000/-.

Methodology for calculation of minimum wage adopted by Pay commissions both Central and State Pay Commissions

Central pay commissions as well as pay commissions in some states have adopted the approach of determining the minimum pay for employees based on the cost of a minimum acceptable standard of living for a household. This is calculated on the basis of the current prices of daily necessities like food, clothing, housing, etc., for a family of three consumption units typical in the case of young employees starting their careers in government. The normative consumption requirements of the family as adopted in the 15th Indian Labour Conference in 1957 are considered for this purpose. While the minimum pay is thus worked out on the basis of a set of quantitative norms and based on Dr. Wallace Aykroyd’s formula , the maximum pay for employees at the highest levels is to be determined as that required to attract and retain persons of qualifications and skills appropriate for the higher positions in government services.

Comparative picture of pay of Central Government and State Government in regards to minimum wage as on 1.7.2017

Govt. of India
Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 18000/-
DA 5% = Rs 900/-
Total Basic Pay + DA =Rs 18900/-

Andhra Pradesh & Telangana
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 13000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% =Rs 3250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 16250/-
DA @ 24.1% = 3916/-
Total Basic Pay + DA=Rs 20166/-

Kerala
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 16500/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% Rs 4125/-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 20625/-
DA @ 14% = 2887/-
Total Basic Pay + DA= Rs 23512/-

Karnataka
Group “D” Min Basic Pay = Rs 17000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% = Rs 4250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 21250/-
DA = NIL
Total Basic Pay + DA = Rs 21250 /-

Ratios between minimum and maximum pay

The existing ratios between minimum and maximum pay of the central government and the States is as follows:

Government of India 1 :12.5
Andhra Pradesh 1:8.527
Kerala 1 :7
Karnataka 1:8.86

The gap is highest in Central Government should be reduced ratios between minimum and maximum pay to 1: 8

Hence there is need for revision of minimum wage for Central Government employees and also fitment formula on the lines of the State Government Pay Commissions, the State Government economic conditions are not as good as the Central Government still the State Governments are paying more for their employees comparing it to the Central Government, in case of the 7th CPC the Central Government Employees got only 14.29% , the Group “A” and above officers of Central Government got more pay hike due to higher fitment formula of 2.72 . Thus injustice is done for Group “C” and Group “B”.

whereas the Karnataka State Government employees got 30% wage hike , Central Government Employees got only 14.29% wage hike , the uniform multiplication factor should be fixed for the Central Government employees and also Central Government Employees should also get 30% wage hike .

Dated: February 2, 2018

Hon’ble Finance Minister,
Ministry of Finance,
(Government of India),
North Block,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: General Budget 2018-19

We hope that, standard deduction, up to Rs.40,000 in the Budget (2018-19) announcement, was provided to give some relief to the salaried class, but at the same time, there is serious resentment in the salaried class in general and the Central Government Employees in particular because of non-enhancement of limit of the Income Tax.

We were hopeful that, in this budget, the Central Government would provide Income Tax exemption, if not Rupees Five Lakh, definitely Four Lakh, but nothing has been done, which has resulted in desperation in the Government Employees. Moreover, Education Cess has been increased from 3% to 4%, which will further put additional tax burden on the salaried class. In such a situation standard deduction given by the government will definitely not going to help to any salaried employees.

Not only the above, Transport Allowance and Medical Reimbursement, used to exempt earlier, have also been stopped in this budget, has given another blow to the salaried class.

Since there is all-round resentment in the salaried class, it would be in all appropriateness if the Income Tax Exemption is enhanced to minimum Rupees Four Lakh.

Sir, Government Employees are also very eagerly awaiting for improvement in the Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula as well as announcement of the Guaranteed Pension to the employees covered under the National Pension System(NPS). These also need to be given top priority to keep industrial peace among the Government Employees.

It is also requested that, Transport Allowance and Medical Reimbursement, almost exempted from the Income Tax, should also remain exempted from the Income Tax, to give some relief to the government employees in distress.

With Kind Regards

Sincerely yours

Dated 01st February, 2018

Office Memorandum

Sub: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

Consequent upon the issuance of this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 13.07.2017 regarding implementation of recommendations of 7th CPC on Travelling Allowance (TA), various references are being received in this Department seeking clarification regarding admissibility of Daily Allowance (DA) in case Govt. employee avails free boarding and lodging.

2. The 6th CPC had changed the old concept of Daily Allowance by introducing reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges on production of vouchers for the same. Since this was a new concept, therefore, option was given to the employees to choose either the old 5th CPC single rate of DA or the new system of DA based on reimbursement of expenses as per 6th CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to continue the concept of reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges with the exception that vouchers are not required to be produced for Food Bills.

3. The matter regarding admissibility of DA in case of free boarding and lodging, has been considered in this Department. Daily Allowance is given to the Govt. employees as a reimbursement of the expenditure incurred by him on tour for his stay, food and travel at that station. ln case of free boarding and lodging, the Govt. employee, if incurring any expenditure on local travel, can claim the same as per para 2 E (i) and (iii) of the Annexure to 0.M. of even No. dated 13.07.2017. The earlier system of giving 25% of DA is being discontinued. Also, after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, the facility of DA at 5th CPC rates is done away with.

4. This is issued with the approval of Secretary (Expenditure). Hindi version is attached.

Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

NFIR: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC/ (Imp)/2016/R.B./Pt.II

Dated: 29/01/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF- reg.

Ref: (i)NFIR’s PNM item No.13/2017.

(ii)Railway Board’s file No.PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2-RBE No.93/2016 dated 02/08/2016 to GMs etc.,

(iii)NFIR’s letter No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 12/09/2016. 30/09/2016, 15/11/2016 & 28/11/2016.

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the PNM item No.13/2017 relating to upgradation of the following posts in Railways :

nfir-7thCPC-Railways

The subject was discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14.11.2017, consequently the Railway Board had stated as follows:-

“Ministry of Finance to whom the matter was referred to for a decision, as now referred it back to DoP&T. The railways are awaiting decision of the Government on the proposal sent by the Railway Ministry”.

The Federation had however requested the Railway Board to pursue vigorously with the concerned Ministries/Department for obtaining clearance for implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC in toto. Federation is disappointed to state that though more than two months passed, the subject continues to remain pending, leading to staff resentment against casual approach on 7th CPC recommendation.

NFIR therefore urges on the Railway Board to kindly expedite for obtaining clearance for upgrading the posts in the above categories.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah),
General Secretary

Dear Sir,
Sub: Item No. 2,10 and 48 of the Joint Committee of MACP – Agenda items of the Standing Committee:

 

Kindly refer to the above. All the three items, which were discussed together pertains to the date of effect of the MACP Scheme which was introduced by the Government on the basis of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The Staff Side demand to give effect to the revised promotional scheme from the date of the effect, the Report of the Commission itself i.e on 1.1.2006 was unfortunately not accepted by the official side and was not allowed to reach its logical conclusion i.e. either by an agreement or disagreement.

 

We now send herewith copy of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter vide W.P 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017.

 

The Hon’ble apex court has categorically stated that the Govt’s decision to make the scheme effective prospectively was wrong and the scheme has to be implemented with effective from 1.1.2006. We request that the Govt. may issue necessary orders making the MACP Scheme Effective from 1.1.2006 instead of 1.9.2008. While issuing such an order it may also be clarified that the employees who were granted the benefit of ACP between 1.1.2006 to 31.08.2008 are not adversely affected and no recovery is ordered I from them in this connection.

 

Thanking you

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,
Kindly refer to the discussion, the Staff Side had with you on 12.1.2018 in the National Anomaly Committee meeting. During the discussion, over the admissibility or otherwise of the anomaly items, incidentally, we had represented to the request made by us to allow the employees to revise their option once exercised under Rule 6 of the Revised Pay Rules 2016. We send herewith copy of our communications sent to the Secretary Expenditure in this regard.

As has been pointed out by us, in our letter cited, the interpretation of the benefit of option had been at variance with consequent loss of emoluments to the employees. The intention of the Rules are often ambiguous. In similar situation both at the time of 5th CPC and 6th CPC on our request the Govt. had been good enough to permit revision of option. In the case of 6th CPC the Notification was issued in 2008 (in September 2008) and the option was allowed to be revised up to 31/12/2010, giving benefit for all employees who were promoted / granted ACP / MACP or granted increment up to 31/12/2010.

We therefore request you to kindly allow revision of option to switch over to 7th CPC pay scales / pay matrix to be exercised within three months of the issuance of the orders permitting such revision.

Yours faithfully,

Scheme for compassionate appointment – Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection

Compassionate Appointments : Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection – Ministry of Defence

Ministry of Defence
D(Lab)

Sub: Scheme for compassionate appointment – Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection.

The undersigned is directed to say that the Department of Personnel & Training under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions is the nodal department for Government of India’s Scheme for Compassionate Appointments. While considering requests for compassionate appointment, a balanced and objective assessment of financial condition of the families of the applicants has to be made taking into account the assets and liabilities and other relevant factors. The main object of the Scheme is to alleviate the family of the deceased government servant/member of the Armed Forces from indigence and help it get over the emergency. Accordingly, vide Ministry of Defence I.D. No.271/93/D(Lab) dated 2.11.93, Ministry of Defence had developed a 100-point weightage system containing various parameters/attributes to decide the most deserving cases amongst the large number of applicants. The weightage system was revised in 2001 vide Ministry of Defence ID No. 19(4)/824-99/1998-D(Lab) dated 9.3.2001. Consequent upon implementation of the 6th CPC Report, parameters of all these attributes were further revised in 2010 vide MoD note No.19(3)/2009/D(Lab) dated 22.1.2010 and 14.5.2010. Presently, the attributes on 100-point scale are – Quantum of Family Pension (20 points); Terminal Benefits (10 points); Monthly income of family from other sources (05 points); Movable/immovable property held by the family (10 points); No. of dependents (15 points), No. of unmarried daughters (15 points); No. of minor children (15 points) and Left over service (10 points). As per the practice, compassionate appointment is given to the highest score earner.

2. Now, consequent. upon implementation of the 7th CPC pay structure, the financial parameters are required to be revised again. Certain organisations/ formations under Ministry of Defence have been requesting for revision of relative merit points and procedure for selecting the most indigent applicant(s) for compassionate appointment after death/medically boarding- out of the Government servant/member of the Armed Forces on whose income the family was wholly dependent.

3. As per 7th CPC structure, the minimum pension stands revised from if 3,500 pm. (as per 6th CPC) to 1 9,000 p.m. which approximately comes out to be 2.57 times the old pension. The Govt. of India have also approved this factor of 2.57 for working oUt revised pay, based on which DCRG, Family Pension and Leave encashment are calculated. Accordingly, the monetary parameters/attributes such as Family Pension, Terminal Benefits, Monthly income of earning member(s) and income from property and latest market value of the Movable/Immovable property have been revised by the multiplying the fitment factor of 2.57 or so, for arriving at the present-day weightage points. However, other non-monetary parameters/attributes viz. No. of Dependents, No. of Unmarried Daughters, No. of Minor Children and Leftover Service have been kept unchanged.

4. Accordingly, with the approval of the competent authority, various parameters on the loo-point scale of weightage system stand revised as under with immediate effect:-

(a) Basic Family Pension 1 Monthly Amount received under National Pension System

(20 points)

(b) Lump sum amount received by the family on death of Govt. servant (i.e. DCR Gratuity, GPF/PPF A/c balance, Leave Encashment, CGEGIS, LIC/PLI etc.) Lump sum Amount received under NPS etc.

(10 points)

(c) Annual income from movable/immovable property as well as Annual income earned by other member(s) of the family

(05 points)

(d) Movable/immovable property of the family (Latest Market Value) including Fixed Deposit/Bank balance etc. but excluding the lump sum amount received as mentioned in (b) above

(10 points)

(e) No. of dependents

(15 points)

(f) No. of unmarried daughters

(15 points)

(g) No. of minor children

(15 points)

(h) Left over service

(10 points)

(Total 100 points)

5. The revised guidelines will take place with immediate effect. However, cases already considered by the Boards of Officers constituted for considering requests for compassionate appointment as per the previous guidelines need not be re-opened.

6. However, for considering belated requests for compassionate appointment where the death/disablement of Govt. servant/member of Armed Forces took place long ago, weightage points towards ‘Terminal Benefits’ may be awarded in the following manner:-

(a) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred prior to 9.3.2001, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 2.11.1993 will be applicable;

(b) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 9.3.2001 till 21.1.2010, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 9.3.2001 will be applicable; and

(c) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 22.1.2010 till 31.12.2015, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 22.1.2010 will be applicable.

7. All the concerned are advised to strictly follow these weightage points and guidelines keeping in view the instructions issued by the DoP&T/MoD, from time to time for assessing comparative merit of the applicants for compassionate appointment.
