Cabinet approves revised pay scales of teachers and equivalent academic staff in Universities/Colleges & centrally funded technical institutions

7th-CPC-revised-pay-scales-teachers-university

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given its approval for revision of pay scales for about 8 lakh teachers and other equivalent academic staff in higher educational institutions under the purview of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and in Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, following implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission for Central Government employees.

The decision will benefit 7.58 lakh teachers and equivalent academic staff in the 106 Universities / Colleges which are funded by the UGC/MHRD and also 329 Universities which are funded by State Governments and 12,912 Govt. and private aided colleges affiliated to State Public Universities.

In addition, the revised pay package will cover teachers of 119 Centrally Funded Technical Institutions viz. IITs, IISc, IIMs, IISERs, IIITs, NITIE. etc.

The approved pay scales would be applicable from 1.1.2016. The annual Central financial liability on account of this measure would be about Rs. 9,800 crore.

The implementation of this pay revision will enhance the teachers’ pay in the range of Rs. 10,400 and Rs. 49,800 as against the extant entry pay due to the implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission for the pay of teachers. This revision would register an entry pay growth in the range of 22% to 28 %.

For the State Govt. funded institutions, the revised pay scales will require adoption by the respective State Governments.

7th Pay Commission: Government mulling over hike in pay without arrears

7th Pay Commission: Government mulling over hike in pay without arrears

Government is mulling an increase in the hike in pay to central government employees beyond 7th pay commission recommendations, a top Finance Ministry official, who did not wish to be named told The Sen Times here today.

Government will come out with a decision in this regard soon after consulting finance experts and weighing its pros and cons, he said.

Government is now considering to make only pay hike for its employees.

“The financial advisers of the government believe it could be tough to give arrears of the hike in pay as the government has been worried after the April-June GDP growth slipped to a three-year low of 5.7 percent but government believes it will bounce back in the second quarter. Among others, it observed that this year’s fiscal math is already stressed as public spending was front-loaded to offset slower private sector participation and cushion the impact of GST roll-out”, he revealed.

“All round development is possible only hike in basic pay with fitment factor 3.00 and minimum pay will be raised to Rs 21,000,” he said.

The 7th Pay Commission, led by Justice A K Mathur, earlier proposed minimum basic pay from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 per month while the maximum basic pay from Rs 80,000 to Rs 2.5 lakh, which have been paid with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016.

The central government employees unions had expressed their dissatisfaction over the inadequate hike in basic pay in accordance to the pay panel recommendations.

They are demanding for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and the and asked to raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times.

Stating that National Anomaly Committee (NAC) headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has been formed under pressure in September, 2016 to look into pay anomalies arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, the official said, “The NAC meeting is likely to be held in October to confirm to hike the basic pay with fitment factor 3.00.”

Pointing out that the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had promised to hike minimum pay after discussions with all stakeholders, he said, “government has made active efforts to fulfill the same”.

The proposal of hike in pay is likely to be sent to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley from NAC, after which it will be placed before the cabinet. Official believes it will come into effect within January’ 2018.

Where is the Bonus for BSNL employees?

Where is the Bonus for BSNL employees?

Bonus is the deferred wage. There was no Bonus for government employees till 1977. Sustained struggles were fought by the Railways and Central government employees for Bonus, including the historic Railway Strike of 1974. It was only after the Janata Government came in to power that Bonus was granted.

The government has announced Bonus for Railway, Postal and other central establishments for 2017, though it is below the demand of the employees. But BSNL employees, who were central government employees earlier, have not been granted the same so far, despite demand from the unions. The Festival season has started and the delay in announcing the same is unjustified.

We demand the BSNL management to announce the Bonus for employees at the earliest.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2016-17.

The undersigned is directed to convey the sanction of the President to the grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) equivalent to 30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2016-17 to the Central Government employees in Group ‘C’ and all non-gazetted employees in Group B, who are not covered by any Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. The calculation ceiling for payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders shall be monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000/-, as revised w.e.f 01/04/2014 vide OM No.7/4/2014-E.III(A), dated 29th August, 2016. The payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders will also be admissible to the eligible employees of Central Para Military Forces and Armed Forces. The orders will be deemed to be extended to the employees of Union Territory Administration which follow the Central Government pattern of emoluments and are not covered by any other bonus or ex-gratia scheme.

2. The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:-

(i) Only those employees who were in service as on 31.3.2017 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2016-17 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible

To calculate Non- PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for one day, the average emoluments in a year will be divided by 30.4 (average number of days in a month). This will, thereafter, be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

(iii) The casual labour who have worked in offices following a 6 days week for at least 240 days for each year for 3 years or more (206 days in each year for 3 years or more in the case of offices observing 5 day week), will be eligible for this Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) Payment. The amount of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) payable will be (Rs.1200×30/30.4 i,e.Rs.1184 21 (rounded off to Rs.1184/-). in cases where the actual emoluments fall below Rs.1200/- p.m., the amount will be calculated on actual monthly emoluments.

(iv) All payments under these orders will be rounded off to the nearest rupee.

(v) Various points regarding regulation of Ad-hoc I Non- PLB Bonus are given in the Annexure.

3. The expenditure on this account will be debitable to the respective Heads to which the pay and allowances of these employees are debited.

4. The expenditure to be incurred on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) is to be met from within the sanctioned budget provision of concerned Ministries/Departments for the current year.

Central Government Employees getting lack of basic of the actual minimum wage of Rs 26,000

central-government-employees-minimum-wage

QUANTIFICATION OF NEED-BASED MINIMUM WAGE AND NEED FOR REVISION OF MINIMUM WAGE OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

The concept of the Need-Based Minimum Wage has evolved in India after Independence and owes its origin to the Directive Principles of the Indian Constitution and the welfare policy of the Government. Its acceptance in principle connotes a public effort at an institutional determination of wage rates particularly in the industrial sector of the economy. Unfortunately the computation of the need based minimum wage has become a controversial subject in the country. While the concept of what the need based minimum wage should cover is fairly clear and generally accepted by both the employer and employee, its actual assessment into monetary terms has raised endless disputes not alone by the employer.

NEED-BASED MINIMUM WAGE FORMULA:

Minimum wages for the average family will have to be based on requirements of food, clothing, housing and so on. Additional components of expenditure to cover for children’s education, medical treatment, recreation, festivals and ceremonies.

In a vast country such as ours, there are bound to be regional variations in these requirements owing to climatic conditions, food habits, etc. At the same time in order to ensure a degree of uniformity the Conference have adopted a certain norms. The food component carries the largest- proportion of the total cost of living in a working class family. The component’s significance is not only economic but human also. On food depends the health and efficiency of the worker, which is vital to the industrial production. After a protracted discussion the Conference adopted Dr. Aykroyd’s second dietary prescription of the adequate diet level, the other one being the optimum diet level. An optimum diet according to him, is one which ensures the functioning of the various life processes at their very best; whereas an adequate diet maintains these processes but not at their peak levels. The optimum diet would include more of vitamins and less of proteins in its caloric content, while the adequate diet would include more of proteins and less of vitamins.

The Committee on Fair Wages laid down that the standard working class family should be reckoned as one consisting of three consumption units, supported by a single male earner and including his wife and two children below the of age 14 The 15th Session of Indian Labour Conference approved that the wage should cover four categories of needs considered essential for the worker’s well being, viz. food, clothing, housing and miscellaneous. In calculating the minimum wage, the norms for the food category should be based on Dr. W.B. Aykroyd’s formula for an adequate and balanced diet. It thus came about that a wage linked to the needs was suggested as a desirable minimum.

Subsequently, when attempting to implement the recommendations of the conference, almost all the wage fixing authorities including the committees appointed under the Minimum Wages Act, 1948 have invariably faced difficulty in determining: (i) the calorific norm which should form the basis of the diet content (ii) the exact composition of the diet (iii) the qualities of the various items of diet and (iv) availabilities of food commodities consumed by the worker and his pattern of consumption. In this regard the first assault was launched by the II Central Pay Commission (1959), pertaining to the calorific norm as laid down by the 15th Indian Labour Conference. The Indian Labour Conference worked out the three-unit formula, the minimum wage is worked out taking into consideration the calorific value requirements of 2,700 each, certain length of cloth requirement, housing rental value, education and medical expenses etc.

CONCEPT OF LIVING WAGES:

Concept of Living Wages It represents a standard of living which provides not merely for bare physical subsistence but for maintenance of health and decency, a measure of frugal comfort, including education of children, requirement of essential social needs and a measure of insurance against eh more important misfortunes including old age. This is the ideal wages and envisaged in Article 43 of Directive Principles in Part IV of the Constitution. I. L. O. Conventions also provide for living wages.

Living wages is the ideal wages and on the line as stipulated in Article 43 of our Constitution. Wage differentials are necessary part of wage structure if skill formation is to be motivated and productivity is to be achieved but at the same time it should be reasonable.

Hence it is relevant to quote the following observation made by the Kerala High Court in Association of Planters of Kerala v State of Kerala in this regard:  A failure to fix or revise minimum wages was not only a statutory violation but is a breach of fundamental right enshrined in Art. 23 of the Constitution. A duty is cast upon the State by provisions of the Act and Article 23 to fix and revise the minimum rates of wages.

7th CPC REPORT PARA NO 4 HAS ALSO DEALT THE ISSUE OF A NEED-BASED MINIMUM WAGE TAKING INTO THE CONCEPT OF THE FOLLOWING.

a) Normative family is taken to consist of a spouse and two children below the age of 14. With the husband assigned 1 unit, wife, 0.8 unit and two children, 0.6 units each, the minimum wage needs to address 3 consumption units;

b) The food requirement per consumption unit is shown in the Annexure to this chapter. The specifications were derived from the recommendations of

Dr. Wallace Aykroyd, the noted nutritionist, which stated that an average Indian adult engaged in moderate activity should, on a daily basis, consume 2,700 calories comprising 65 grams of protein and around 45-60 grams of fat. Dr Aykroyd had further pointed out that animal proteins, such as milk, eggs, fish, liver and meat, are biologically more efficient than vegetable proteins and suggested that they should form at least one-fifth of the total protein intake

c) The clothing requirements should be based on per capita consumption of 18 yards per annum, which gives 72 yards per annum (5.5 meters per month) for the average worker’s family. The 15th ILC also specified the associated consumption of detergents

d) The prescribed provision of Report of the Seventh CPC 63Index 25 percent to cover education, recreation, ceremonies, festivals and medical expenses has been reduced to 15 percent.

THE THREE-UNIT BASED FORMULA ADOPTED BY THE PAY COMMISSIONS NEEDS A CHANGE TO SIX UNITS DUE TO FOLLOWING FACTORS :

The three-unit based formula to fix minimum wages presently counts only four members of a family ie husband, wife and two children. It has no provision to count dependent parents, if any, or even if there are more than two children.

The three-unit formula gives the husband a full unit, wife 0.8 unit, and 0.6 units for each of the two children.

Now the trade unions and the employees associations are of the opinion that the three-unit system are not sufficient to decide minimum wages because the children continue to stay with the family for longer periods. The two children and wife should be accorded one single unit instead of 0.6 units,” also, marriageable age of a child has also increased and they should also be given full units, the gender equality should also be observed instead of 0.8 units it should be full unit for the spouse.

Hence should be revised to the four unit formula gives the husband a full unit, wife full unit, and full units for each of the two children.

After the 2010 Supreme Court ruling that dependent parents are to be taken care of by children, two more units should be added and the formula be based on six-unit formulae than three.

“The CrPC section 125 and Maintenance of Parents and Senior Citizens Act make it mandatory for an earning member to maintain his parents, failing which he/she may have to face penal consequences. Today, the average life span of a person has increased to 68.3 years compared to that of 41 years in 1957. Hence two additional units have to be added,”

So there is a need to hike number of units from three to six to calculate minimum wages.

OTHER FACTORS AFFECTING OUR WAGES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

1) The 7th CPC has taken into consideration the 15% to cover education, recreation, ceremonies, festivals and medical expenses against 25% prescribed by the Supreme Court. Additional components of expenditure to cover for children’s education, medical treatment, recreation, festivals and ceremonies. This followed from the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Raptakos Brett Vs Workmencase of 1991 for determination of minimum wage of an industrial worker. The Supreme Court had prescribed this amount at 25 percent of the total minimum wage calculated from the first five components.

2) Secondly the prices of essential commodities for calculation of the minimum wage is always a debate , the price essential commodities by the using Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers maintained by Labour Bureau, Shimla and the retail prices are showing different rates , the retail prices of essential commodities are at higher end including that of state Government run co-operative society’s compared to the retail prices maintained by Labour Bureau, Shimla by more than 15%, that is the prices maintained by Labour Bureau, Shimla are lower by more than 15% compared to market prices , the CG employees are deprived of proper minimum wage by an extent of 25% . If proper retail prices are taken into account the minimum wage shall be more than Rs 26,000/- as on 1st Jan 2016.

THE PAYMENT OF WAGES ACT, 1936:

The revision of payment of wages act, 1936 , the Government has raised the monetary limit of wages to Rs. 24000/- per month for the applicability of the Act by issuing the notification .This calculation of Rs 24,000/ is based on Dr. W.B. Aykroyd’s formula. This is done on the basis of figures of the Consumer Expenditure Survey published by the National Sample Survey Organization.

The payment of wages act, 1936 monetary limit of wages to Rs. 24000/- per month is for unskilled worker , if we add Rs 25% for skilled worker , it work out at Rs 30000/- for skilled worker which includes wages and allowances, at present the Central Government employees at the initial stage are paid Rs 23,000/- (Rs 18,000/ as minimum wage and Rs 5,000/ as allowances ), still there is gap of Rs 7,000/ , if the minimum wage of Central Government employees is re fixed at Rs 22,000/ then this gap shall be reduced.

The breakup of the Central Government employee’s salary is as follows.

Non Metro City
Minimum wage Rs 18,000/-
HRA Rs 1800/-
Transport allowances Rs 900/-
Children education allowances Rs 2250/-
Total Salary : Rs 22950/-

The Central Government employees are deprived of the actual minimum wage of Rs 26,000/-. Hence there is a need of revision of minimum wage from Rs 18,000/ as Central Government is a model employer.

Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

7th-CPC-Minimum-Pay

7th CPC Minimum Pay – Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission

Is it really possible to Increase the Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor even 18 Months after the resolution for Implementation of 7th CPC Recommendation issued ?

What is that NCJCM Staff Side really wanted to convey to the Central Government Employees by posting such letters regarding Increasing of Minimum Pay and Improving of Fitment formula.

NCJCM Staff Side is the only hope and Final Destination for Central Government staffs to ask to settle their issues under negotiated settlement. But it seems that the Staff Side is not using this forum effectively to resolve the issues pertaining to the Central Government Employees.

The issues of HRA and Minimum pay are perfect examples of the failure of NCJCM Staff Side.

The central Government employees wouldn’t have faced such huge loss in payment of HRA if the same rate is implemented with effect from the date of Notification i.e 25.7.2016

When the Central Government was not even ready to reinstate the HRA at Sixth CPC rates, how come one expect that the Government will increase the Minimum Pay to Rs. 21000 or fitment factor from 2.57 to 3. Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission.

Dated: September 5, 2017

The Cabinet Secretary,
(Government of India),
Cabinet Secretariat,

Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub:- Long pending issues of the Central Government Employees

Ref.: My earlier letter dated 30.06.2017

I have discussed the issues creating mental agony in the minds of the Central Government Employees many a times and once again want to draw your kind attention for resolution of many long pending demands of the Central Government Employees.

National Pension System (NPS) has been raised by the Staff Side (JCM) many a times, the committee set up by the Government of India for reviewing NPS has also submitted its report, but we are not aware about the outcome of the same. Staff Side(JCM) has been of the firm view that there must be “Guaranteed Pension” for the employees recruited on or after 01.01.2004, and in case of their death/permanent disablement, their families should get Pension as per Old Pension Scheme.

All the Central Government Employees are anxiously waiting for recommendations of the Government of India for increasing Minimum Wage and improving Fitment Formula and inordinate delay in this regard is creating lot of frustration amongst them.

It is, therefore, requested that, you may please intervene in the above-mentioned issues and the same should be resolved in an amicable manner to avoid mental agony of the Central Government Employees.

With Kind Regards!

Sincerely yours

S/d,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary (Staff Side)

7th CPC Minimum Pay from Rs.18000 to Rs.21000 is just a rumour

7th CPC Minimum Pay from Rs.18000 to Rs.21000 is just a rumour

Government plans to increase 7th CPC minimum pay from Rs.18000 to Rs.21000 is just a rumour

Suddenly a news about increasing minimum pay from Rs. 18000 to Rs. 21000 is floating in some websites. All such news items come with the claim of that ‘the sources close to Finance Ministry on condition of anonymity told government Is planning to increase the minimum wage from Rs. 18000 to Rs. 21000. We are also flooded with queries of whether this news is true or false.

As for as we are concerned we came to know that there was no such plan under consideration of central government. Some websites might have posted this news on vested interest or by misunderstanding the amendment made in payment of wages act.

Recently a amendment was made in payment of wages act to increase the wage limit to Rs.24000 for applicability of sub section 6 of section 1 of Payment of wages act 1936. (see the amendment)

This might have been misunderstood by some media that central government is going to increase minimum pay to Rs.21000.

We asked some leaders in NCJCM side, they told that they haven’t any idea about the news and the authenticity of sources of that news.
