NMC urges PM to appoint Chairman for 7th Pay Commission, Merger of DA, 20% Interim Relief etc.
JAMMU: National Mazdoor Conference has asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to immediately appoint the chairman and other members of the 7th Pay Commission and hold discussions with representatives of the Centre and state government employees in this regard.
“National Mazdoor Conference has urged to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to immediately appoint chairman and other members of the 7th Commission and hold discussions with representatives of both Centre and state government employees in this regard as the Central and state government employees and pensioners will be entitled to 7th Pay Commission with effect from January one, 2016,” NCM President Subash Shastri said.
An early notification for appointing chairman and other members of the announced 7th Pay Commission is the need of the hour, as it will have a bearing on about one crore employees and pensioners, both with the Central as well as state governments, Shastri said addressing a NMC workers rally at Rani Park here.
“50 per cent of the DA should be forthwith merged into the basic pay and pension,” he suggested, adding that 20 per cent interim relief should be sanctioned as early as possible in favour of Central and state government employees and pensioners.
The NMC chief also demanded regularization of all daily- rated workers and casual and seasonal labourers engaged in different government departments.
He appealed to the Chief Minister, Finance Minister and Chief Secretary to formulate a comprehensive policy for the regularization of all such workers.
