7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees

7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees

New Delhi: After long wait, the 7th Pay Commission award has been fully implemented including allowances, which has been implemented from July 1, it has increased new hopes among the central government employees that their allowances has been hiked.

The Union Cabinet cleared the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension on June 29 and government notified higher allowances on July 7, 2017 for its 4.8 million employees and 5.2 million pensioners, in a bid to ease the inflationary pressure.

“Allowances contribute 63 percent in the pay hike recommendation. The allowances which the commission proposed is very substantial. So, the central government employees now not only get 14.28 per cent hike in pay but also to get new allowances, which providing for full compensation to the central government employees,” a top Finance Ministry’s official told.

Government jobs in India have been less rewarding in terms of pay and allowances. Apart from a sense of job security and perceived power, most of the employees have to struggle to make ends meet with the cost of living going up every year.

The central government employees are seeing inflation catch up with their pay rises as the cost of living rises faster despite of government figure.

With the current basic pay hike and steep inflation, it is not possible for central government employees to make ends meet. It is also impossible to sustain with their current basic pay without hike in allowances. Inflation has climbed steadily over the past few years, which the new allowances will help to compensate.

Accordingly, the new allowances will hopefully attract central government employees to live with dignity and the quality of service delivery in central government offices is expected to improve which will in turn contribute to higher productivity and growth for the nation.

The Cabinet Secretary,
(Government of India),
Cabinet Secretariat,
Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of the Committee on Allowances

We are quite thankful that after a long wait the Union Cabinet has given its approval for implementation of recommendations of the Committee on Allowances(Ashok Lavasa Committee) as recommended by the VII CPC.

As you are aware that, during the meeting of the Empowered Committee, held under your Chairmanship, we had requested for its early implementation, but unfortunately a long time has been taken by the said committee for finalizing the allowances.

We are thankful to the Government of India for agreeing in principle for House Rent Allowance @ 10%,20% and 30% to the Central Government Employees working in levels 1 to 3, but depriving other staff, particularly Group ‘C’ staff, which has resulted in lot of discontentment among the Central Government Employees. Staff Side(JCM) is also thankful to the government for reducing 50% Dearness Allowance barrier to 25% for future enhancement of HRA to 09,18 and 27% and restoring 10,20 and 30% on 50% Dearness Allowance, but at the same time would have appreciated if the same formula should have been envisaged for other allowances which are DA indexed.

We are also thankful to the Central Government for revising various allowances, including Breakdown Allowance, Nursing Allowance, Trip Allowance, Additional Allowance, Cycle Allowance, Cash Handling Allowance etc. as also Special Allowance to Trackmen, Section Controllers and Loco Pilot (Goods) and Sr. Passenger Guards and extending Patient Care Allowance to Ministerial Staff working in the hospitals. We also appreciate the government for enhancing the rate of Fixed Medical Allowance from Rs.500 p.m. to Rs.1000 p.m. for the Pensioners. Though it is meager to old-aged pensioners, healthcare and at least Rs.2500 should have been granted.

The date of implementation of the allowances, as announced, w.e.f. 01.07.2017, has created lot of anguish and serious discontentment in the Central Government Employees. We will appreciate if the government considers its implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of VII CPC.

Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula was one of the major demands in our Strike Notice, for which government formed a committee, unfortunately, up-till now nothing substantial has been done in this regard. Staff Side(JCM), therefore, requests that, a meeting should be called and the matter be resolved at an earliest.

The government has also constituted a Committee on National Pension System(NPS) and it was assured to us that, decision in the matter would be taken within four months. Unfortunately, up-till now, this issue remains unresolved. We earnestly hope that, the government will definitely consider the demand of the Staff Side – Guaranteed Minimum Pension for new Pensioners (appointed on or after 01.01.2004) as well as Family Pension at par with Old Pensioners/Family Pensioners.

We always believe in best industrial relations, but to keep industrial peace, we hope, the government will take appropriate steps to resolve the long pending demands of the Central Government Employees at an
earliest.

Comradely yours,

Cabinet’s decision on Allowance to Central Government Employees

Cabinet’s decision on Allowance – Discontentment amongst the Central Govt. Employees: AIDEF writes to JCM for urgent meeting

ALL INDIA DEFENCE EMPLOYEES FEDERATION
“S.M. Joshi Bhavan”, Survey No. 81, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Road, Khadki, Pune – 411003

No.014/1014/NC(JCM)/AIDEF/17

Dated: 30.06.2017

To
Comrade Shiva Gopal Mishra,
Secretary/ Staffside,
National Council (JCM),
13-C, Ferozsha Road, New Delhi.

Subject : Cabinet’s decision on Allowance to central Government Employees.

Dear Comrade,

After the decision taken by the Cabinet on the Lawasa Committee’s recommendation on the CPC Allowances including HRA, there is a total discontentment amongst the Central Govt. Employees. The Govt. assured NJCA that within 4 months they will settle all the 7th CPC related demands. However the Govt. made the Central Govt. Employees to wait for more than an year and ultimately has decided to implement what the 7th CPC has recommended with some minor changes here and there. The demand of the NJCA and Staffside to revise the Allowances from 1/1/2016 has been rejected and Govt. has decided to revise the same only from 01/07/2017, thereby denying the arrears on Allowances to the Central govt. Employees.

The Govt. is remaining silent on the demand of minimum pay, fitment factor and NPS. The Govt has already rejected the option No.1 recommended by Th CPC to the pre-2016 pensioners.

In this situation this Federation is of the view that you may urgently call a meeting of the NJCA or Staff Side to discuss the entire issue and to take decision on future course of action considering the anger, dissatisfaction and discontentment amongst the Central Govt. employees. We hope you will appreciate the seriousness of the situation.

With regards,

Yours Comradely,
S/d,
(C. Sri Kumar)
General Secretary.

Shri Mishra, however, emphasized that, main demand of the Central Government Employees for increasing Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula as well as Guaranteed Minimum Pension for the Central Government Employees, appointed on or after 01.01.2004, should also be considered by the government sympathetically and orders to this effect be issued at an earliest in view of the widespread anxiety and discontentment prevailing among the Central Government Employees.

He appreciated the government for increasing the rate of Fixed Medical Allowance from Rs.500 p.m. to Rs.1000 p.m.

Shri Mishra further said that, Staff Side(JCM) is thankful to the government for increasing various allowances for Nursing Staff and extending Patient Care Allowance to Ministerial Staff working in the hospitals, and at the same time hopeful for increasing the same for other categories of staff also.

Launch Campaign Allowance and Space Technology Allowance

Launch Campaign Allowance and Space Technology Allowance

Allowances to Scientific Departments

i. The recommendations of 7th CPC to abolish Launch Campaign Allowance and Space Technology Allowance has not been accepted. In order to incentivize the supporting employees in Space and Atomic Energy sector, the rate of Launch Campaign and Space Technology Allowance has been increased from ₹7500 per annum to ₹11250 per annum. Professional Update Allowance for non-gazetted employees of Department of Atomic Energy will also continue to be paid at the enhanced rate of ₹11250 per annum.

ii. The 7th CPC had placed Antarctica Allowance, paid to the Scientists and other members undertaking the expedition to Antarctica under the Indian Antarctic programme, in the RH-Max Cell of the R&H Matrix. The rates of the RH-Max Cell recommended by the 7th CPC were less than the existing rates of Antarctica Allowance which is currently paid on per day basis. Considering the specific nature of these expeditions and to provide appropriate increase in rates, Government has decided to keep Antarctica Allowance out of the R&H Matrix and the allowance will continue to be paid on per day basis as per existing practice. The Rates of Antarctica Allowance will go up from ₹1125 per day (Summers) and ₹1688 per day (Winters) to ₹1500 per day (Summers) and ₹2000 per day (Winters).

AIRF: 7th CPC Allowance Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

AIRF

 

No.AIRF/405(VII CPC)(Allowances)

Dated: June 15, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

 

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

Today I met the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, and shown our anguish regarding non-settlement of demands of the Central Government Employees, particularly non-approval of the allowances by the Cabinet.

The Cabinet Secretary assured that, all the things are in the process and most probably would be placed in the next Cabinet meeting.

Normally, Union Cabinet meets on every Wednesday, but this time 21st June, 2017 being “Yoga Day”, this may defer for one or two days, so according to the assurance given by the Cabinet Secretary, we hope that the matter of the allowances would be settled within this month.

We have also come to know from the reliable sources that the Committee on National Pension System(NPS) has also submitted its report and some serious discussion is on for its implementation.

The Cabinet Secretary also assured that he has discussed the issue of “Very Good” benchmark with the CRB as well as Secretary(DoP&T), where he has advised them that the benchmark should be the same as prevalent in the case of promotion; the same should be for MACP also.

This is for your information.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

General Secretary

Government to take final call on allowances by June 1

Government to take final call on allowances by June 1

New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government is likely to take a final decision by June 1 on higher allowances for 4.7 million central government employees.

The assurance was given by the Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha after a meeting with the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is a centralised union of several central government employees unions.

The secretary of the NJCA, Shiv Gopal Mishra met with Sinha and asked the demand of the central government employees on allowances.

“Today I met the Cabinet Secretary and handed him over a copy of our letter regarding inordinate delay in implementation of the report of the Committee on Allowances,” Mishra said.

Sinha told Mishra that the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by him had fixed date of 1st June, 2017 for perusal of the report of the Allowances Committee, and soon after that, the committee will send a memorandum to the Cabinet for nod.

In late June, after implementing the 7th Pay Commission proposals on salary and pension, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had announced the ‘Committee on Allowances’, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to examine the suggestions on allowances. It had time till October to give the report but this got delayed.

The decision on allowances was postponed because the 7th Pay Commission wanted a number of these to be abolished or subsumed. Employee unions were opposed.

The ‘Committee on Allowances’ submitted its report to finance minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

However, the Committee’s report on higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission haven’t made public.

The report on allowances is now examined by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) and after it, it will be placed before the Cabinet.

The central government employees now get all allowances except dearness allowance, according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations until issuing of higher allowances notification.

7th Pay Commission: As Budget session starts tomorrow, all eyes on Arun Jaitley to announce hike in allowances

7th Pay Commission: As Budget session starts tomorrow, all eyes on Arun Jaitley to announce hike in allowances

The Committee on Allowances has already submitted its report to the Finance Ministry in which it has reviewed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission on allowances.

With the second part of the Budget session in Parliament starting on Thursday, all eyes are on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who may just announce a hike in allowances for Central government employees.

The Committee on Allowances has already submitted its report to the Finance Ministry in which it has reviewed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission on allowances.

The Committee under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa is believed to have suggested that the house rent allowance be kept as it is and not brought down as recommended by the Seventh Pay Commission.
The pay hike under the Seventh Pay Commission has been the lowest in the last 70 years and a decrease in allowances is unlikely to go down well with nearly 50 lakh government employees.

THE DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION STORY:

  • With Uttar Pradesh and Manipur voting in the final phase today, the model code of conduct will be lifted by the end of the day. The Narendra Modi government, which could not make any major announcements during the poll season, is expected to speak on the allowances soon.
  • The second part of the Budget session will continue for a month till April 12, and it is widely believed that Arun Jaitley can make an announcement during the session, and employees may start getting revised allowances from the new fiscal in April.
  • On allowances, this pay commission has not had the best news for government employees with the panel recommending axing 53 of the 196 allowances and merging a few others.
  • Following protests by employees, the government formed a committee under Ashok Lavasa to look into the recommendations. The pay commission had suggested bringing down the house rent allowance (HRA) to 24 per cent from 30 per cent of basic pay for metros.
  • While the Committee on Allowances decided against a slash in HRA, reports suggest that it has agreed with Seventh Pay Commission’s recommendation on no hike in transport allowance.
  • To add to the growing resentment among employees, the dearness allowance (DA) is likely to be hiked by just 2 per cent this year. “The dearness allowance as per the agreed formula by the Centre works out to be 2 per cent which would be effective from January 1, 2017,” Confederation of Central Government Employees President K K N Kutty said.
  • Representatives of employees unions are not happy with the hike and said it is not in sync with price rise and inflation. According to some reports, employees union are planning to protest against the “meagre” hike in DA.

Retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances

Cabinet Decision on 7th CPC Allowances only after 11th March 2017

“Retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances – COC Karnataka”.

Allowances

Comrades,
The media is debating that the allowances committee headed by Shri Ashok Lavasa Finance Secretary has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji on 22nd or not. Comrades as you aware that this committee period has expired on 22nd February 2017, the question is that even if it has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji it is confidential document all media creation on the HRA rates are not be believed, the actual truth will be known only after the assembly elections results of five states which will be declared on March 11.

The past experience is that even if the committee decides positively the union cabinet had turn down the recommendations of the committee, hence speculation is not correct, only after the union cabinet approves the recommendations of the committee, the new orders is issued.

The main demands of the CG employees is retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances.

Comrades instead of speculation it would be better we focus on the 16th March 2017 strike, which would put pressure on the Central Government to yield to our charter of demands.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

7th Pay Commission: Government all set to clear revised allowances for central staff from April 1

7th Pay Commission: Government all set to clear revised allowances for central staff from April 1

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended HRA of 24% of the basic pay for those cities with population over 5 million.

New Delhi, Feb 18: The Union Government is all set to clear revised allowances for the central government staff, precisely after a year of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. As per reports, one year after the implementation of the new pay and pension scheme, as recommended by the 7th central pay commission, the central government employees might have something to rejoice about after the assembly elections in 5 states are over. Reportedly, the revised allowances are likely to be effective from April 1. (ALSO READ: Committee on Allowances likely to raise HRA to 30 per cent)

House rent allowances (HRA) accounts for about 60% of the total allowances bill, as The Financial Express stated and according to the revised allowance scheme, the employees, mostly in the metropolitan cities are expected to receive greater HRA than the 7th Pay Commission actually recommended. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended HRA of 24% of the basic pay for those cities with a population over 5 million. But the revised HRA which is being looked at by the Finance Secretary-led panel is 30%. Notably, in the 6th Pay Commission, the HRA was at 30% as well for the cities with more than 5 million people. A draft of the cabinet note for implementation of the revised allowance is expected to be circulated soon.

As per reports, the financial implication of these revised allowances will be in line with the Central Pay Commission’s estimate of around Rs. 29,300 crores, which shall also include the railways, in the first year. The panel led by the Finance secretary is also reviewing the CPC’s recommendation regarding allowances. The pay panel has also recommended scrapping of 52 benefits while merging 36 already existing benefits.

Notably, there has been only an additional allocation of Rs. 4,500 crore in the Budget for allowances and it has been assumed that the Railways will bear Rs 7,600 crore of expenditure. But as per sources stated by FE, still, the additional allocation which will be required from the General Budget could be somewhere around Rs. 17,000 crores.

The Government has, reportedly, enough leg space, thanks to the demonetisation move and the extra taxes the people had to pay under the income disclosure schemes. But according to experts, the Budget assumptions were based on optimistic estimates of nominal GDP growth for financial year 17 (FY17) and thus for FY18.

Many have been complaining about the delay in the decision of allowances to the government employees, with some claiming the formation of the panel led by the Finance Secretary as a delaying tactic itself. But this has helped to boost the spending of the government in various programmes by around Rs. 36,000 crores in FY17.

Allowance Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017

Allowance Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017

Federation Leaders associated with National Council JCM are keep telling that Allowance Committee might submit its report on 20th February 2017. The CG Staff are already very much upset over the Government’s deliberate attempt to delay the payment of Allowances by constituting many committees. Because the payment of revised Allowances is considered will impact the Governments Exchequers.

Lot of Committees formed and Meetings held after the Notification issued for implementation of 7th CPC Recommendations. But there is no any fruitful outcome from these meetings. No sign of making decisions which satisfy the Central government employees.

Had the Allowance like HRA is paid in revised rates from the date of Notification ie 25th July 2016, it seems more beneficial than waiting for the subcommittee reports. Because if revised allowances are not given retrospective effect, it will be a huge loss for Central Government Servants.

Reports suggests that the Allowance Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017 and it will be notified with effect from 1st April 2017. Federation sources told that It is unacceptable and we will fight it out until the revised allowances implemented with effect from 1.1.2016
