Government expenditure on Central Government Employees and actual impact on government finances

Government expenditure on CG employees and actual impact on government finances

Comrades,

There are various reports in the media about the impact of the 7th CPC recommendations on the common man and the government resources at large, the reports suggest that additional amount of Rs one lakh crores of public money has been spent for implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations for 35 lakhs central Government employees, Perhaps the strongest criticism of Pay Commission awards is that they play havoc with government finances and also state government demand support to implement the 7th CPC recommendations. At the aggregate level, these concerns are somewhat exaggerated and which is totally wrong.

Let us examine the 7th CPC report vide para no 3.65 and 3.66 and the website of Government of India Ministry of Finance Department of Expenditure Pay Research Unit for Brochure on Pay and Allowances of Central Government Civilian Employees visit website : http://finmin.nic.in/pru/BROCHURE/PayAllowance2013-14E.pdf

7th-cpc-GDP

The 7th CPC report para number 3.65 and 3.66

3.65 The total expenditure on pay and allowances for civil personnel of Central Government in the recent years is brought out in Table 9.

Table 9: Expenditure on Pay and Allowances

7th-cpc-pay-allowance

The Commission has obtained details of expenditure from each ministry/department for up to FY 2012-13. Of the total expenditure on pay and allowances of Rs 1,29,599 crore for the financial year 2012-13.

3.66 The expenditure per capita on pay and allowances for Civil Central Government personnel for FY 2012-13 was Rs 3.92 lakh per annum i.e Rs 32666/- per month.

Add 35% DA for the period 1/4/2013 to 1/1/2016 average salary of Civil Central Government personnel as on 1/1/2016 at 125% DA which works around Rs 37500/- per month (Rs 4.50 lakhs per annum ) without 7th CPC recommendations . ie Rs 1.57,000 crores

Add average 16% wage increase due to 7th CPC which works out to Rs 43500/- per month Rs 5.22 lakhs per annum) with 7th CPC implementation .

Total Expenditure for 35 lakhs for Civil Central Government personnel for FY 2016-17 is around Rs 1,83,000 crores In respect of pensions expenditure for 55 lakhs pensioners amount is around Rs 81,000/ crores as on 1/1/2016. which is against the revenue receipts of Rs 19 lakh crores. The percentage of revenue receipt and wages is just around 13 % of the total revenue is spent on the wages and pension for the Central Government personnel. In fact it is just at 1.3 % of the GDP.

This clearly shows that that the increase in impact for the government of India finances is just below additional Rs 25,000/- crores not additional Rs 1,00,000/- crores as per the media reports.

The 7th CPC recommendations’ impact need not give jitters to the government because the rise in government wages will amount to only 0.4 per cent of GDP.

One more aspect is that technically, the recommendations of a Central Pay Commission are only for Central Government employees and States are not bound to follow suit. Indeed, up to the 1980s, States constituted their own Pay Commissions and prescribed their own pay scales, based upon their fiscal capacity.

Let us not be carried over by the media or press reports, hence we should educate each and every employee for struggle and so that a decent wage hike is achieved.

Comradely yours

(P.S.Prasad)

General Secretary

7TH CPC Will Increase Central Government Pay Only By 15% – Should We Accept?

Big Expectations from 7th CPC and Low possibilities projected by Union Finance Minister!

 

Honourable Finance Minister Shri.Arun Jaitely had spoken about the possible impact of 7th CPC recommedations in Parliament.

 

The Speech is critically reviewed by Comrade Elangovan of DREU.

 

I am reproducting the comments of Comrade Elangovan for the consideration of our members:

 

7TH CPC WILL INCREASE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT PAY ONLY BY 15% – SHOULD WE ACCEPT?

R.ELANGOVAN,
WORKING PRESIDENT, DREU

 

1. The Medium Term Expenditure Framework statement has not yet been uploaded in Finance Ministry’s website.However I have taken the figures provided by print media including The Hindu.As per their statement the expenditure on salaries will rise by 9.56% in the fiscal 2015-16 as a result of 7th CPC implementation over the normal estimated expenditure in the 2015-16 budget to Rs.100619 crores. This means that the expenditure projected was Rs.91,839cr which if increased by 9.56% becomes Rs.100619 crores.

 

2. While going through the earlier framework statements I have come to the conclusion that the ‘salaries’ shown is pay with normal increments plus DA projected.

 

3. As per the estimated strength and provision there of statement laid as part of finance budget,the normal projection as PAY was Rs.60731 cr and so DA is Rs 31,108 as deducted from Rs 91 839 cr.The budget document does not give the DA expenditure separately. It gives the total expenditure on all allowances. I have therefore arrived at the figure based on calculations. However I have sought the expenditure on DA, HRA, and Transport Allowance separately through RTI.

 

4. The increase proposed is Rs.100619 cr from Rs.91,839 cr which means that there will be an increase of Rs.8780 cr. There won’t be any DA after 1-1-2016 up to 31-3-2016 in the fiscal 2015-16.Therefore the whole increase is on basic pay in this fiscal.

 

5. As we have already seen that the basic pay is Rs.60731 cr. the increase of Rs.8780 cr. is over this Rs.60731.This increase is 14.45% only.The expenditure projected for 2016-17 is Rs.1,12,000cr which is Rs.11,400 more over 2015-16 which works out to 11.32%. This is due to Increment, DA,HRA, TRA etc.The projection for 2017-18 is 1,16,000 cr.

 

6. If 40% of Basic Pay is to be given,the increase of expenditure in the fiscal 2015-16 must be Rs. 24000 cr as against the Rs. 8780 cr. The demand of JCM Staff side is that there must be an increase of 371% of basic pay as on 1-1-2016. With the 119% DA we would be drawing 219% already. The real increase demanded is 152% of Basic Pay. So not the 152% or 40% of 5th and 6th CPC is intended to be given to us. Only around 15% is going to be given. As The Terms Of Reference of 7TH CPC directs them to recommend only what is ‘FEASIBLE AND DESIRABLE’ to the Government.Now the Government In Parliament states only 15% is FEASIBLE AND DESIRABLE. ARE WE TO ACCEPT IT.? Some PSUs got 15%. But that is for 5 years. But for Central Government Employees it is for Ten Years. Are We To Accept?

 

7. Pension expenditure for civilian pensioners was estimated to be Rs.27,145cr and defence pension Rs.54,500 cr. The total is Rs.81645 cr. This is expected to go up to Rs.88521 cr, which is an increase of Rs.6876 cr.As there will be no Dearness Relief for the fiscal 2015-16 the increase is to be accounted only to Basic Pension.

 

8. I have sought the expenditure break up for dearness relief under RTI. However the rough calculation shows a near increase of same 15% in Pension.

 

9. The impact of 6th CPC on expenditure as per estimated strength of establishment and provision there of in respect of Central Government civilian employees was as follows:
ARREARS Rs 26084 cr. For three years mostly on Pay and DA regular PAY Increase per annum: Rs 8685 cr. These are actual figures.The 219% ofRs. 8685 cris Rs.19000 cr. EVEN THIS IS NOT GIVEN.

10.We must issue a warning to the government afresh demanding acceptance of our demand.I recall my earlier note where in I had quoted Bibek Debroy’s report that the 7th CPC will not be that destabilising to the Government as that of 6th CPC. GOVERNMENT PROVES THAT.

 Facilities to Employees of BRO

The workforce of Border Roads Organisation (BRO) comprises both of Army and civilian personnel. The Army personnel are governed by their own terms and conditions of service, while the civilian personnel are governed by Central Civil Service Rules and their pay and allowances are regulated pursuant to these rules at par with other Central Government employees.

However, keeping in view the service conditions of BRO, the civilian personnel have been extended some additional facilities such as Mess, Ration, CSD Canteen, Uniform, 60 days Earned Leave in a calendar year, etc., which otherwise are not entitled to other civilian employees of Central Government.

Certain facilities / allowances like retirement age of 60 years, Non-Functional Upgradation, Headquarter Allowance, Special Duty Allowance etc., are applicable for entitled Civilian personnel only and not for Army personnel.

The terms and conditions of the army and civilian personnel in BRO are governed by two different sets of Rules / Regulations; therefore, complete parity among them is not feasible.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Shri Om Birla in Lok Sabha today.
