7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission Higher allowances

New Delhi: The Union government has dropped higher allowances proposal under the 7th Pay Commission from its today’s cabinet meeting agenda at the last minute, the Finance Ministry officials involved with the process of higher allowances told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

The officials said recommendation of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha on higher allowances, was due to come before the Union cabinet at its meeting today for formal approval.

However, the item was dropped from the agenda at the last minute, as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is on an official visit to South Korea, they added.

However, they said that the Cabinet may decide on 7th pay commission allowances this month.

In June 2016, the Cabinet approved 14% pay and pension hike for central government employees and pensioners under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations with effect from January 1, 2016.

The decision on higher allowances was postponed by the Cabinet on that time because the 7th Pay Commission wanted abolition of 52 allowances and subsuming of another 36 allowances into larger existing ones out of total 196 allowances.

Employee unions were opposed it, which government complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa in June 2016 to review the allowances.

The Committee on Allowances submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The report was then taken up by the Department of Expenditure for examination, following which it was passed on to the Empowered Committee of Secretaries set up to screen the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries was in the process of preparing the Cabinet note on higher allowances, which was completed on June 1.

The central government employees are now getting no new allowances (except Dearness Allowance) with their new pay structure till the cabinet nod.

HUMAN CHAIN OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS

AT ALL IMPORTANT CENTRES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY

MASSIVE PROTEST AGAINST THE BETRAYAL OF THE BJP-LED NDA GOVERNMENT

High Level Committee, assured by the Group of Minsters, not yet constituted. First anniversary of the Hon’ble Cabinet Minister’s assurance will be on 30.06.2017. No increase in Minimum Pay and fitment formula.

7th CPC took 18 + 2 months only for submitting report after examining the entire service conditions, pay scales, allowances, Pensionary benefits of about one crore Employees and Pensioners including military personnel. Allowance Committee took almost 12 months for examining only 52 allowances!! BJP Government is deliberately delaying the revised allowances to deny arrears.

Option-I parity for pensioners recommended by 7th CPC and accepted (??) by cabinet, mercilessly rejected by appointing a feasibility Committee.

NPS Committee is for further strengthening NPS and not for withdrawal of NPS or for guaranteeing minimum pension as 50% of last pay drawn.

MACP promotion denied to thousand of employees by imposing stringent conditions on bench mark.

Gramin Dak Sevak Committee Report submitted to Government on 24.11.2016 (Seven months over) still under process.

Exploitation of casual and contract workers continues. Equal pay for equal work denid.

Autonomous body employees and pensioners cheated by Government by denying their legitimate wage revision and pension revision.

No negotiated settlement on the charter of demands submitted to Government by JCM (staff side) and Confederation.

High Expectation over announcement of 7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect

High Expectation over announcement of 7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect

7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect – Actual report in the current scenario

7th CPC Allowances-central-government-employees

7th CPC Allowances is now become a hottest topic of discussion and most expected matter by Central Staffs. Central Government confirmed officially that the Report of the Allowance Committee is submitted to the Government. Later the Cabinet Secretary told that Allowance Committee Report will be examined by the Expert Committee of Secretaries which was appointed initially to expedite the Recommendations of 7th Pay Commission.

It was said that the Cabinet Secretary Fixed 1st June 2017 for perusal of the report of the Allowances Committee by the Empowered Committee. Whether ECoS has finished its work or not is not known yet.

The Cabinet Committee under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi has met On 7th June 2017. There was lot of expectation on that day that the Cabinet would announce its decision about 7th CPC Allowances. But nothing has been announced so far.

The CG Staff have been frustrated by the Government’s approach towards settling the issue of 7th CPC Allowances. The Government servants are considerably losing monetary benefits they are supposed to get from the implementation of 7th CPC Recommendation. They are expecting the following two things to be decided at the earliest.

The amount of Increase in the Rates and Percentage of Allowances What will be the Date of effect ..?

Delaying the Decision on the above two issues are the main reason for the frustration of Central Government Employees. The Federation are trying their level best to give pressure through agitation program to invite the attention of Central Government to announce the 7th CPC Allowances as soon as possible.

7th Pay Commission: Revised Allowances Likely From July, Says Report

7th Pay Commission

The Lavasa committee has suggested some modifications to 7th pay commissions recommendations on some allowances.
Central government employees are likely to get revised allowances (including HRA) from next month, reported. Revised 7th pay commission related allowances are expected to give a further boost to consumer spending and thus the broader economy, analysts say. The report, citing sources, said that the Cabinet could take up the proposal of 7th pay commission allowances later this month. The Ashok Lavasa committee, which examined the 7th pay commission’s recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister on April 27. An Empowered Committee of Secretaries was set up screen the report and firm up proposals for the Cabinet.

The Lavasa committee suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry said in a statement.

The government had last year accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed Seventh Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension. The 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations relating to allowances were referred to the Ashok Lavasa committee.
The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA or dearness allowance crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when it crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.

7th Pay Commission Allowances related report submitted to Cabinet by Empowered Committee Secretaries

7th Pay Commission Allowances related report submitted to Cabinet by Empowered Committee Secretaries

Highest HRA at 27% as against 30% demanded by Staff Side

7th Pay Commission Allowances

As per Zee Business News report, Empowered Committee of Secretaries has presented its report on 7th Pay Commission Allowances to Cabinet for its approval. It is further reported that Cabinet is likely take crucial decision on this issue involving around 50 lakh Central Government Employees during next Week.

Earlier, the Lavasa Committee appointed by the Govt for examining the Allowances related recommendations of 7th Pay Commission submitted its report to Govt recently. Following the usual procedure of examination by Empowered Committee of Secretaries in the case of Financial decision to be taken by Cabinet, the report relating to 7th Pay Commission allowances was also examined by Empowered Committee.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) has submitted its report on higher allowances like House Rent Allowance (HRA), Dearness Allowance (DA) and Transport Allowance (TA) under 7th Pay Commission (7th CPC) to Union Cabinet, sources told Alok Priyadarshi of Zee News.

However, the demand of the central government employees that HRA of 10%, 20% and 30% on revised 7th CPC Pay based on classes of cities was not considered in favourably, reports Zee News. Instead, Empowered Committee have recommended highest HRA slab ranging between 25%-27% of the basic as against demand of 30%

7th Pay Commission has earlier recommended house rent allowance at the 24%, 16% and 8% of the 7th CPC revised Basic Pay for Class X, Class Y and Class Z cities respectively.

If the report of the Empowered Committee is acceptable to the Cabinet, it more likely that final decision on revision of 7th Pay Commission Allowances will be taken by Cabinet next week.

7th Pay Commission: Latest updates on higher allowance

7th Pay Commission: Latest updates on higher allowance

New Delhi: The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) will finally take up higher allowance report on June 1, said Shiv Gopal Mishra, secretary of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is a centralised union of several central government employees unions, who met the Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha.

The ‘Committee on Allowances’, which examined the 7th pay commission’s recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The committee on allowances has suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry said in a statement.

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

The committee on allowances report is being currently examined by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha set up to screen the 7th pay commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

In June 2016, the government approved 14% pay and pension hike for central government employees and pensioners under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The decision on allowances was postponed at that time because the 7th Pay Commission had recommended abolition of 52 allowances and subsuming of another 36 allowances into larger existing ones out of total 196 allowances. Employee unions were opposed.

Accordingly, the government implemented the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission from January 1, 2016 in respect of basic pay and dearness allowances, other allowances continued to be paid at old rates.

So, the finance minister Jaitley referred allowances to the committee on allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa in June last year.

The 7th Pay Commission also recommended slashing the House Rent Allowance (HRA) from 30, 20 and 10 per cent to 24, 16 and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) demanded the government to implement higher allowances without further delay with effect from January 1, 2016.

The NJCA also demanded HRA at the rate of 30%, 20% and 10% instead of 24, 16 and 8%.

7th Pay Commission: No scope to change in higher allowances

7th Pay Commission: No scope to change in higher allowances

New Delhi: Finance Ministry sources today said on condition of anonymity, there is no scope to change in higher allowances, which were recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

The sources came up with the remark while talking to us about hiking of allowances of all central government employees and officials by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) better than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Those who will hope over these issues will gain nothing but no change in 7th Pay Commission recommendations on allowances are very much hiking possible, they added.

Replying to a question, the sources said, “The demand of central government employees to hike in allowances than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is likely not to be considered by the secretaries panel.”

“The central government finally decided not to give any facility to central government employees better than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Accordingly, the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on pay scales and advances and its implementation have been made forcefully.

Moreover, the government is now engaged in forceful implementation of allowances, which was recommended by the 7th Pay Commission,” the finance ministry sources added.

The sources also said that the quantum of allowances may not vary from those proposed by the 7th Pay Commission as the committee on allowances headed by Finance Secretary stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on allowances.

The Government will not necessarily be bound by the findings of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries on allowances, the sources confirmed.

“The Empowered Committee will make its proposal,” source said. “government will make the decision.”

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) headed by the Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha and after it, it will be placed before the Cabinet.

Shiv Gopal Mishra, secretary of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is a centralised union of several central government employees unions, met with the Cabinet Secretary recently for inordinate delay on implementation of allowances.

The Cabinet Secretary assured Mishra that the Empowered Committee of Secretaries is likely to take a final decision on higher allowances by June 1.

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

Dear Sir,

Sub: Inordinate delay in implementation of the report of the Committee on Allowances

It is a matter of regret that, in spite of all the persuasions made by the Staff Side(JCM) there is inordinate delay in finalization of recommendations of the Ashok Lavasa Committee on Allowances. More than one year and three months have passed after implementation of the report of the VII CPC, but the employees are still getting allowances at the old rates as had been recommended by the VI CPC.

The Committee on Allowances took longer time while finalizing its recommendations, but it is a matter of deep regret that, even after submission of the report by the said committee, the same has not been made available to the Staff Side(JCM), therefore, we do not know what recommendations have been made by the said committee.

Staff Side(JCM), therefore, requests that the recommendations of the Allowances Committee should be made available to the Staff Side(JCM).

Moreover, it would be highly appreciated that, the Allowances should be implemented without any further delay, and the date of the implementation should be w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

With Kind Regards!

Sincerely yours,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
