Central Government Employees are not yet given the full Benefit of 7th CPC Recommendation


Central Government Employees are not yet given the full Benefit of 7th CPC Recommendation

The actual increase on account of implementation of 7th CPC recommendation is still not fully available to Central govt Staffs.

The recommendation of 7th Pay Commission has been implemented with effect from 1.1.2016 and the revised salary is being paid from this effective date. The Central Government, after implementing the Pay Panel report, hasn’t announce any decision about Allowances even after 12 months, created frustration among central government employees.

The Pay Commission is constituted once in Ten Years to revise the Pay and Allowances and Pension for Govt Servants and Pensioners. Accordingly, the 7th Pay Commission was formed and it submitted its report to the Government on 19-11-2015. The Government Accepted the Report without any major changes and announced on 29.6.2016 that it would be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016.

Since the increase in salary which is paid from 1.1.2016 was very less, it has demolished the expectations of CG Staffs.

Very important aspect in revising Pay and Allowance is House Rent Allowance. The rates of HRA is determined based on the Population of the Cities in which the Govt Servants are working. Accordingly, 10,20 and 30% of Basic Pay is paid as HRA in Sixth CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to revise it as 8%, 16% and 24%.

The Unions and Federations demanded to increase the HRA rates or at least to restore the Sixth CPC rates. Hence the Government has announced that a committee would be constituted to examine the Allowances, until then all the Allowances would be paid in Sixth CPC rates.  As a result of this, HRA is being paid in old rates (Sixth CPC ) along with revised 7th CPC Basic Pay to CG Staffs. Now the CG Staffs have realized that very purpose of forming a high-level committee is not for resolving the issues but it is a delaying tactics.

Consequent to Pay Revision, the major increase in Salary is used to come from HRA only. Though one year is completed after the implementation of 7th CPC recommendation, the Government is delaying to take the decision over allowances. Due to this, the CG staffs are losing monitory benefits considerably

For example ..
The increase in Pay and HRA of a Government servant who is drawing Rs.10000 in pre revised scale is given below …

6th CPC
Basic Pay DA (125%) BP + DA 10% HRA 20% HRA 30% HRA
10000 12500 22500 1000 2000 3000
 7th CPC  
Basic Pay DA (0%) BP + DA 10% HRA 20% HRA 30% HRA
25700 0 25700 2570 5140 7710
3200 1570 3140 4710

If the Monthly salary of Government servant with 10Years of service is Rs.22500, now the Actual increase of his salary is only Rs. 3200. Through this example it is quite obvious that, one can get the real increase in salary only after the HRA is paid in 7th CPC revised rates.

BPMS proposed general pay scale submissed to 7th Pay Commission

BPMS proposed general pay scale submissed to 7th Pay Commission

Proposed General Pay Structure

BPMS proposed the following revised pay structure on the basis of logic as follows:


On the recommendation of Sixth CPC various pay scales of erstwhile Group ‘D’ & Group ‘B’ employees were merged and upgraded but none of the pay scales of Group ‘C’ were merged and upgraded. Hence, we demand that there should be only 03 grade pay each in PB-1 & PB-2 by merging/upgrading

as under:-

Rs. 1900 & Rs. 2000 Merged & Upgraded to Rs. 2400

Rs. 2400 & Rs. 2800 Merged to Rs. 2800

Rs. 4600 & Rs. 4800 Merged to Rs. 4800

The minimum-maximum ratio has been fixed at 1:7

Only Three Pay Bands have been proposed since consequent upon abolition of Group “D” Posts, there now remains only 3 Groups viz : C, B, and A. PB-I is for Group “C”, PB-II is for Group “B” and PB-III is for Group “A”.

A large span has been kept in PB-III to ensure financial movement to HAG slot of Officers who otherwise do not find promotional space in the slot.

General Pool Allotment of Type VIB (C-I) and Type A (C-II) in Delhi to Secretaries and Secretary level officers

Directorate of Estates issued an OM on allotment of VI B [C-1] and VI A[C-11] Quarters to the Secretaries to the GOI and Secretary Equivalent officers. The decisions taken as dealt in this memorandum will come in to force from 01.04.2015.

Government  of India
Ministry  of Urban  Development
Directorate  of Estates

Nirman  Bhawan,
New Delhi-110  108.

Dated the 9th  March, 2015



Subject:    Allotment of Type VI B [C-1] and Type VI A [C-11] houses of General Pool Residential Accommodation  in Delhi to the  Secretaries to the Government of India and  Secretary  equivalent officers and below level officers.

The  undersigned  is directed  to  invite  attention  to  the  Directorate  of Estates instructions/guidelines   issued  vide  O.M.No.12035/9/207-Pol.ll dated 31.1.2013 for allotment  of Type VI 8 [C-1]  houses of General Pool Residential Accommodation  in Delhi among Secretaries, Secretary equivalent officers and Chairmen/Members  of Commissions/Tribunals  in the  ratio of  1: 1: 1 and vide OM No.12035/9/97-Pol.ll(Vol.ll) dated 16.1.2003 for allotment of Type VI A [C-11] houses among Secretaries/Secretary equivalent level officers and Chairmen & Members  of  various  Commissions, Tribunals  etc.  in the  ratio  of  1: 1.  The instructions   issued  vide   O.M.No.12035/9/2007-Pol.ll  dated   11.5.2011 also states that no HAG officer will be allotted Type VI A [C-11]  house or Type VI 8 [C-1] house, if an officer in the apex grade is waiting in other lists.

2. The matter has been reviewed in view of availability of higher types of accommodation  in Commonwealth  Games Village complex  in New Delhi for allotment  and creation of a  separate Chairmen/Members Pool [CM Pool] for Chairmen/Members of Quasi-judicial bodies in Delhi.  The Chairmen/Members of the Commissions/Tribunals  will  be eligible for  residential accommodation from Chairmen/Members [CM] Pool only with effect from 1st April, 2015.

3. Therefore,   it   has  been  decided   by  the   competent   authority   that allotment of Type VI 8 [C-1] houses of General Pool shall be made in the ratio of 1: 1  among the Secretaries to the Government of India & below level officers and Secretary equivalent  officers  and  below  level officers  with  effect from 1st April, 2015.    The allotment of Type VI A [C-11] houses in General Pool shall be made to  officers  waiting  in the  list of  General Pool and earlier  ratio  is dispensed with effect from 1st April, 2015.

4. It has come to notice that apex grade officers have been waiting in one list  of  Type  VI 8  [C-1]  while  HAG level or  below  level  officers  are getting accommodation from other list as sufficient number of apex grade officers are not available from  that  list.   Thus, it has created an anomalous  situation  in allotments of Type VI 8 [C-1] accommodation.

5. The matter has been re-examined by the competent authority and it has been decided that allotments for Type VI B  shall be made to the officers with apex pay scale in the first  instance in these two  categories  irrespective  of availability of units.   Thereafter, the remaining vacancies shall be allotted to Additional  Secretaries to the Government  of  India and Additional  Secretary equivalent level officers, who are not in the apex pay scale, as per the extant ratio.   Moreover, no HAG level officer shall be allotted Type VI B  [C-1]  house while officer with apex pay scale is waiting in any of the lists.

6. This Office Memorandum supersedes O.M.No.12035/9/2007-Pol.ll dated 11.5.2011and O.M.No.12035/9/2007-Pol.ll dated 31.1.2013.

Sl. No. Issue Action taken / Government’s view
1 Demand for regularization as Government servant. Gramin Dak Sevaks, about 2,65,000 in number are a distinct category of employees, who do not form part of the regular civil service. They are governed by a separate set of conduct and engagement rules. They are engaged for 3 to 5 hours in a day. Their livelihood is not solely dependent on the allowances paid by the Postal Department. They are mandatorily required to possess independent sources of income for adequate means of livelihood. They are discharged on attaining the age of 65 years and while in employment are required to have residence mandatorily within the post village/delivery jurisdiction of the post office.

Demand for 50% DA Merger presented to the new government

Demand for 50% DA Merger presented to the new government

It looks as if this time all the Central Government Employees Federations are seriously committed to getting 50% Dearness Allowance added to their basic pay!

All the CG employees federations have strongly made this demand to the newly formed Government at the Centre. They have all explained the reasons and submitted the justification, why they have made this demand and have requested that it be implemented.

The demand was first put forth in the middle of last year. It was hoped that the demand would be implemented before the general elections. Everybody expected an announcement in this regard at the end of the last cabinet meeting that was held on February 28, 2014. The disappointment they felt wouldn’t be easy to forget.

In order to renew this demand and present it to the newly formed government, all the federations have presented memorandums. Mr. Shiva Gopal Mishra, Secretary of National Council JCM Staff Side, has sent a detailed letter to the Government explaining this demand.

One will have to wait and watch if the newly formed government, under the leadership of Modi, accepts this demand of more than 50 lakh employees.
