Comparison of Minimum Pay

Comparison of Minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017.

Pay Commission Objective: It is the endeavour of every pay commission to ensure that the pay and allowances of employees should be ‘fair and reasonable’. The pay structure should also motivate the employees to reasonable levels of performance in the tasks assigned to them, so that the general public derive the benefit of their service as intended.

7th CPC of Central Government: The Central Government has been following the practice of pay revision for employees once in ten years. Pay scales of the Central government employees have been revised with effect from 1.1.2016 based on the report of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The revised minimum pay effective from 01.01.2016 is 2.57 times the pre-revised basic pay. The minimum pay of the central employees has been worked out at Rs.18,000/- per month and represents a real increase of 14.29% of the pre-revised wages. The multiplication factor adopted for revising all the other scales ranges between 2.57 and 2.72 resulting in maximum pay of Rs.2,05,400 corresponding to the highest pre-revised pay scale other than the apex pay scale of Rs.80,000 which is raised to Rs.2,25,000. The Cabinet Secretary’s pay is fixed at Rs.2,50,000.

Employees Associations (Staff side JCM) have also sought minimum pay revision to Rs.26,000 with effect from 01.01.2016.

Pay Revision of various State Governments

Government of Kerala Pay Scales: The revised pay structure introduced by the Government of Kerala witheffect from 1.7.2014 is based on the recommendations of the 10th PayRevision Commission and relates to index level of 239.92 points ofAIACPI (IW). Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 16500/-

The rates of increment range from Rs.500 to Rs.2,400. The payment of DA formula is unaltered and continues to be as per the central government formula to neutralise the price rise over and above the 239.92 points twice in a year.

Andhra Pradesh Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Andhra Pradeshon the basis of the recommendation of 10th Pay Revision Commissionrelates to index level of 220.61 points of AIACPI (IW), Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 13000/-

The HRA ranges from 30% to 12% of basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.20,000 depending upon the classification of places and pay.

Karnataka Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Karnataka on the basis of the recommendation of 6th Pay Revision Commission relates to index level of 276.9 of AIACPI (IW).

(For English version read from page number 135 on wards)

The 6th pay commission appointed by the Karnataka Government recommended a 30% increase in the salaries of around 5,20,000 government employees and 73,000 employees from “aided institutions”.

The revision of pay and pension is to come into effect from 1 July 2017 with benefits paid from 1 April 2018. The Group “D” minimum basic pay is fixed at Rs 17000/-.

Methodology for calculation of minimum wage adopted by Pay commissions both Central and State Pay Commissions

Central pay commissions as well as pay commissions in some states have adopted the approach of determining the minimum pay for employees based on the cost of a minimum acceptable standard of living for a household. This is calculated on the basis of the current prices of daily necessities like food, clothing, housing, etc., for a family of three consumption units typical in the case of young employees starting their careers in government. The normative consumption requirements of the family as adopted in the 15th Indian Labour Conference in 1957 are considered for this purpose. While the minimum pay is thus worked out on the basis of a set of quantitative norms and based on Dr. Wallace Aykroyd’s formula , the maximum pay for employees at the highest levels is to be determined as that required to attract and retain persons of qualifications and skills appropriate for the higher positions in government services.

Comparative picture of pay of Central Government and State Government in regards to minimum wage as on 1.7.2017

Govt. of India
Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 18000/-
DA 5% = Rs 900/-
Total Basic Pay + DA =Rs 18900/-

Andhra Pradesh & Telangana
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 13000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% =Rs 3250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 16250/-
DA @ 24.1% = 3916/-
Total Basic Pay + DA=Rs 20166/-

Kerala
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 16500/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% Rs 4125/-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 20625/-
DA @ 14% = 2887/-
Total Basic Pay + DA= Rs 23512/-

Karnataka
Group “D” Min Basic Pay = Rs 17000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% = Rs 4250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 21250/-
DA = NIL
Total Basic Pay + DA = Rs 21250 /-

Ratios between minimum and maximum pay

The existing ratios between minimum and maximum pay of the central government and the States is as follows:

Government of India 1 :12.5
Andhra Pradesh 1:8.527
Kerala 1 :7
Karnataka 1:8.86

The gap is highest in Central Government should be reduced ratios between minimum and maximum pay to 1: 8

Hence there is need for revision of minimum wage for Central Government employees and also fitment formula on the lines of the State Government Pay Commissions, the State Government economic conditions are not as good as the Central Government still the State Governments are paying more for their employees comparing it to the Central Government, in case of the 7th CPC the Central Government Employees got only 14.29% , the Group “A” and above officers of Central Government got more pay hike due to higher fitment formula of 2.72 . Thus injustice is done for Group “C” and Group “B”.

whereas the Karnataka State Government employees got 30% wage hike , Central Government Employees got only 14.29% wage hike , the uniform multiplication factor should be fixed for the Central Government employees and also Central Government Employees should also get 30% wage hike .

7th Pay Commission implementation to State Government Employees – Minister’s reply in the Parliament

7th Pay Commission implementation to State Government Employees – Minister’s reply in the Parliament

7th Pay Commission implementation – State Government employees are not covered within the terms of reference of the 7th central Pay Commission – Minister’s reply in the Parliament

Smt.Nirmala Sitharaman in a written reply to a Member states that State Government employees are not covered within the terms of reference of the 7th central Pay Commission

While answering to a question in Parliament on 12th August 2014 regarding the employees working in State Government, Ministry of State for Finance Smt.Nirmala Sitharaman said that the State Government employees are not covered within the terms of reference of the 7th central Pay Commission.

She replied in written form to a question asked by a member that service conditions of State Government employees fall within the exclusive domain of respective State Governments. Therefore, State Government employees are not covered within the terms of reference of the 7th central Pay Commission.

Thus, the recommendations of Commission will not directly apply to State Government employees. Accordingly, it is not possible for the Central Government to indicate the financial burden on State Governments, if they decide to adopt the recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of their employees with or without modification.

She also added, the Central Government had sought the views of the State Governments and till the date of the constitution of the 7th Central Pay Commission on 28.2.2014, only 14 States had responded. These State Governments generally mentioned, inter-alia, that adoption of the recommendations of a Central Pay Commission by them in case of State Government employees adds to substantial financial burden

Since the decision to adopt the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in case of the State Government employees will exclusively concern respective State Government, the question of any assistance by the Central Government will not arise. However, the Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission provide, inter-alia, that while making its recommendations, the Commission will also keep in view the likely impact of the recommendations on the finances of the State Governments, which usually adopt the recommendations with some modifications.

7th Pay Commission – Karnataka CM hints at Setting up New Panel

7th Pay Commission – Karnataka CM hints at Setting up New Panel – The comment raised hopes of state government employees who had gone on a day-long strike on June 2 demanding pay parity with Central government staff.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah gave a strong indication to state government employees on Thursday when he hinted at setting up a pay panel to explore the possibility of salary hike that would benefit about 6.40 lakh employees.

“State government employees have been demanding salaries on a par with the Central government staff. The time has come to set up the next pay commission as the Centre is implementing the recommendations of the th pay commission,” Siddaramaiah was quoted as saying by Deccan Herald.

The chief minister spoke on the sidelines of the diamond jubilee celebration of the Karnataka Government Secretariat Employees’ Association (KGSEA) in Bengaluru.

The comment raised hopes of state government employees who had gone on a day-long strike on June 2 demanding pay parity with Central government staff.

“We are happy that the chief minister is keen on setting up a new pay commission. He also promised to look into our grievances,” KGSEA president Mahadevaiah Matapathii said. The last pay commission was set up by the state government five years ago.

Besides salary hike, the employees also want session allowance for all Vidhana Soudha employees and a site for the association’s building.

The 7th Pay Commission’s (CPC) recommendations hiking salary and allowances for Central government employees is a trigger for many state government employees to seek parity with their Central government counterparts.

The central government has accepted the recommendations pertaining to the hike in the salary component, while a decision on allowances is likely by November this year when a committee set up to examine raising allowances submits its report to the finance ministry.

The salary hike for Central government staff has also prompted employees of public sector undertakings (PSUs) to seek a similar hike for which they will be going on strike on September 2 in which state-run banks will also participate. Besides, pay hike, the strike is also in protest against “anti-labour” reforms of the government such as stake sale in PSUs.

After coming to power for the second time, the Mamata Banerjee led government on Friday announced a grant of interim relief to state government employees amounting to 10 percent of their band pay.

“The interim relief is small in nature but the net impact to the state exchequer will be around Rs.3,000 crore,” said Banerjee.

The difference in dearness allowance for state employees compared to their central counterparts stands at 50 percent.

Women employees demand two year leave for raising newborns

Women employees demand two year leave for raising newborns

Like the central government, the female employees of the Tamil Nadu state government have requested the government to give them two years maternity leave to raise their newborns. The proposal was made during the International Women’s Day celebrations.

The International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world to ensure the safety of women. Women must be treated as equals of men at workplace and in the society. Also, selective abortions of female foetuses, and killing of female babies must be stopped.
Women take care of the health of their entire family, but often neglect their own health. Due to lack of proper nutrition, many women suffer from malnutrition and anaemia. Women can be healthy only if they eat well-balanced food. Only then will they be able to give birth to healthy children.

The Tamil Nadu government must, like the Central Government, give two years maternity leave to its female employees so they can raise their newborns.

7th Pay Commission: 3 Service chiefs to convey concerns to Parrikar

7th Pay Commission: 3 Service chiefs to convey concerns to Parrikar

New Delhi: Concerned over the increasing pay disparity between defence personnel and their civilian counterparts, the three Service chiefs will soon meet the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to convey more such “shortcomings” in the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

A notification issued by the state Finance Department today said the whole time state government employees drawing upto 80,000 salary would draw Dearness Allowances at the rate of 75 per cent with effect from January 1, 2016.

There would also be an adhoc increase in the existing wages of daily rated workers under the government with effect from January 1, 2016, the notification said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced the hike in September this year addressing a meeting of the Trinamool Congress affiliated West Bengal State Government Employees Federation.

However, she had said no arrears would be paid.

The state government had last time hiked DA by seven per cent on January 9, 2015.

With this decision, nearly seven lakh state government employees would be benefited, while the ten per cent hike in DA would cost the state exchequer around Rs 2,500 crore annually, state government officials said.

The state government already have set up the sixth pay commission for its employees.

West Bengal Government Sets Up Pay Commission

West Bengal Government Sets Up Pay Commission

 

Kolkata: The West Bengal Government has constituted the 6th Pay Commission for its own staff members and certain other categories of employees in the state to revise their salaries.

 

Economist Abhirup Sarkar, who is a professor of the Indian Statistical Institute, has been appointed chairman of the eight-member Pay Commission, which is scheduled to submit its report within six months.

The state Assembly elections are slated for next year and the setting up of the pay panel was made eight days after the Central Pay Commission submitted its report.

 

A Finance Department resolution yesterday said the decision was taken considering changes taken place in the structure of emoluments of state government employees in several respects since the 5th Pay Commission submitted its report.

 

The Commission will also cover employees of local bodies, panchayats, public undertakings, teaching and non-teaching staff of government aided and sponsored educational institutions.

 

As per its Terms and Reference, the Pay Commission would examine the present structure of pay and conditions of service, among other things.

 

It would examine the existing promotion policies and related issues and suggest suitable changes.

It would also examine various allowances, besides issues relating to retirement benefits.

 

To make recommendations on each of the above, the factors which will be considered included the prevailing pay structure under Central government, PSUs and other state governments, the economic condition of the country and the resources of the state government.

 

The Pay Commission will devise its own procedures and may take help of other departments and make estimate of the cost involved in implementing their recommendations.

 

“The Commission will submit their recommendations as expeditiously as practicable but preferably within a period of six months from the date of order notifying the constitution of the Commission,” the resolution said.

The Pay Commission may submit interim recommendations if found necessary or if so desired by the state government, it added.

Implement 7th Pay Panel, Insist Staff

Implement 7th Pay Panel, Insist Staff

 

As many as two hundred members of the Confederation of Pondicherry State Government Employees Associations were arrested here, on Wednesday, for attempting to picket the Chief Secretariat demanding the implementation of the yet-to-be submitted seventh pay commission’s recommendations with retrospective effect.

 

In the meantime, the confederation leaders urged the Central government to announce an interim relief.

Apart from seeking the implementation of its recommendations from the date of the constitution of the commission, the agitators also put forth a 34-charter of demands that included the filling up of vacancies in all the departments, replacement of the new pension scheme with the old one, setting up of grievance cell in all departments and cadre restructuring to improve chances of promotion for employees.

 

The panel set up on January 1, 2014 by the previous UPA government will take at least 18 to 24 months to submit its final recommendations.

 

Puducherry government has 25,000 employees, who enjoy similar service conditions as that of their Central government counterparts.

 

Earlier, members of the confederation took out a rally. As the police did not allow them to proceed beyond the Head Post office, they began demonstrating then and there. After a while, all the agitators were arrested and removed.

 

The protest was led by Seetharaman. Office bearers of the association C H Balamohanan and Premadasan were among those, who took part in the rally and the subsequent agitation.

 

Meanwhile, the joint action committee members of the municipality and commune panchayat workers associations, affiliated to the AITUC held a demonstration in front of the Local Administration Department demanding the regularisation of the part time and daily rated employees who are working for more than 15 years.

 

They also urged the administration to provide Deepavali bonus for part time employees, and make appointments on compassionate grounds to the relatives of those who died.

 

The joint action committee had planned three phased agitation to press these demands.

 

Wednesday’s first phase agitation was led by AITUC leader V S Abishegam. The second and third phase of the agitation would be held near Raj Nivas here on November 18 and 25 respectively

Maharashtra government hikes coverage amount of group insurance for its employees

Maharashtra government hikes coverage amount of group insurance for its employees

Mumbai: In a landmark decision, the Maharashtra government has decided to increase the coverage amount of its group insurance policy for its employees.

 

The BJP-led government has also decided to allow newly appointed women employees to avail a maternity leave, which was earlier not allowed.

Maharashtra Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said the government has decided to increase the the coverage amount of its group insurance policy from Rs 1,20,000 to Rs 3,60,000 for class III employees.

Whereas for class IV employees, the new insurance coverage will be Rs 2.40 lakh which was earlier Rs 60,000.

“The state employee organisations were demanding to increase the insurance policy coverage and hence the decision was taken,” Mungantiwar told reporters here.

He said that the monthly insurance premium will also increase and will be Rs 360 for class III and Rs 240 for class IV employees.

“The new changes will come in force from January 1, from the day of anniversary of the ‘government employee group insurance scheme’. The difference of the premium amount will be deducted from the salary of employee from November 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015,” Mungantiwar said, adding that the scheme will benefit 4.70 lakh state government employees.

He said the government has also decided to let women employees avail maternity leave, even if they have not completed at-least two years in service, as stipulated earlier.

“Earlier it was mandatory for women employees to have completed two years in government services to avail 180 days of paid maternity leave. Employee who had completed more than a year and less than two years were allowed to take maternity leave, but half their salary was deducted,” Mungantiwar said.

“Now even newly appointed government employees will be allowed to take paid maternity leave,” the minister said.
