Press Statement of Confederation regarding the declaration of 7th CPC

 Press Statement of Confederation regarding the declaration of 7th CPC

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
(Central Head Quarters)

Dated – 25.09.2013

PRESS STATEMENT

Central Government has announced the constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has been raising this demand before the Government right from 2011 onwards and has conducted series of agitational programmes including Parliament March and one day nationwide strike on 12th December 2012.

While welcoming the decision of the Government, we are disappointed to note that our demand for five years wage revision w.e.f. 01.01.2011 and merger of DA has not been considered favourably by the Government. When the public sector employees are given five years wage revision and the erosion in real wages has reached an all time high due to steep price rise, grant of five year wage revision to Central Government employees is fully justified. Similarly every time the Government appointed pay commission merger of DA was also granted. This time Government has not acceded the demand for merger of DA with pay now. Thus by appointing pay commission employees will not be getting any financial benefit now. The demand for inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under the purview of the 7th CPC and grant of merger of DA to GDS is also pending.

In view of the above, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers urge upon the Government to consider the above demands also favourably failing which the confederation shall be constrained go for further agitational programmes.

Government to set up first separate pay commission for Indian military: NDTV

New Delhi: India's armed forces are likely to have their own pay panel for the first time since independence.

This comes as the government prepares to set up the seventh Pay Commission to decide on salary hikes for the 50 lakh central government employees, ahead of state polls and national elections due by May. The pay panel's recommendations are expected to be implemented from January 2016.

All three military chiefs had written to the Defence Minister last year, asking for pay parity with civilian employees. The armed forces have also been demanding the one rank one pension and one rank one pay rule.

They are also pushing for fixing rank pay and fixing pay structure for jawans and junior commissioned officers (JCOs).

In June last year, Defence Minister AK Antony had reportedly written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on "growing discontent among the services personnel due to the anomalies in payment and salaries."

Mr Antony had said that service personnel, ex-servicemen and pensioners were "equally agitated" and suggested that corrective action be taken or "things may take a bad turn."

A month later, the PM set up a four-member committee of secretaries, headed by the Cabinet Secretary, to look into the demands. The armed forces had then objected to the absence of military representation on the committee. Later, some of the anomalies were corrected, and the government had promised a separate pay commission for the armed forces.

Government salaries had been substantially hiked under the sixth pay commission headed by Justice BN Srikrishna. The revised pays fixed the salary of the Cabinet Secretary at Rs 90,000 a month and Secretary at Rs 80,000 per month, while making Rs 6,660 as the minimum entry level salary.

Government announces Seventh Pay Commission for central employees

NEW DELHI: Ahead of elections, the government on Wednesday announced constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission, which will go into the salaries, allowances and pensions of about 80 lakh of its employees and pensioners.

"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission. Its recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from January 1, 2016", finance minister P Chidambaram said in a statement.

The setting up of the Commission, whose recommendations will benefit about 50 lakh central government employees, including those in defence and railways, and about 30 lakh pensioners, comes ahead of the assembly elections in 5 states in November and the general elections next year.

The government constitutes Pay Commission almost every ten years to revise the pay scales of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modification.

As the Commission takes about two years to prepare its recommendations, the award of the seventh pay panel is likely to be implemented from January 1, 2016, Chidambaram said.

The Sixth Pay Commission was implemented from January 1, 2006, fifth from January 1, 1996 and fourth from January 1, 1986.

The names of the chairperson and members of the 7th Pay Commission and its terms of reference will be finalized shortly after consultation with major stakeholders, Chidambaram said.

Cong welcomes constitution of 7th Pay Commission

Welcoming the constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission, Congress on Wednesday recalled that the BJP-led NDA government had “rejected” the legitimate formation of the Sixth Pay Commission in 2003.

Party general secretary in-charge for Communication Ajay Maken’s tweets hailing the pay commission came soon after the government announced constitution of the Commission, which will go into the salaries, allowances and pensions of about 80 lakh of its employees and pensioners.

“7th Pay Commission of Govt employees announced. Except for 6th Pay Commission all Pay commissions are set up in 3rd year of a decade....The government should attract best of talents as its employees. Pay Commissions help in attracting and also retaining best available talents,” Mr. Maken commented on the microblogging site Twitter.

He recalled that the NDA government had rejected the Sixth Pay Commission in 2003.

“NDA rejected the legitimate formation of 6th Pay Commission in 2003.Congress setup 6th Pay Commission in 2005, now again the 7th CPC in 2013,” Mr. Maken said.

Announcing the decision earlier, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said in a statement “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission. Its recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from January 1, 2016”.

The setting up of the Commission, whose recommendations will benefit about 50 lakh central government employees, including those in defence and railways, and about 30 lakh pensioners, comes ahead of the Assembly elections in five states in November and the general elections next year.

The government constitutes Pay Commission almost every ten years to revise the pay scales of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modification.

7CPC: Seventh Pay Commission for central government employees announced

The government on Wednesday decided to finally announce the Seventh Pay Commission for central government employees and pensioners.

“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission. Its recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from January 1, 2016″, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said in a statement.

The setting up of the Commission, whose recommendations will benefit about 50 lakh central government employees, including those in defence and railways, and about 30 lakh pensioners, comes ahead of the Assembly elections in 5 states in November and the general elections next year.

The government constitutes Pay Commission almost every ten years to revise the pay scales of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modification.

As the Commission takes about two years to prepare its recommendations, the award of the seventh pay panel is likely to be implemented from January 1, 2016, Chidambaram said.

The sixth Pay Commission was implemented from January 1, 2006, fifth from January 1, 1996 and fourth from January 1, 1986.

The names of the chairperson and members of the 7th Pay Commission and its terms of reference will be finalised shortly after consultation with major stakeholders, Chidambaram said.

Last week, the Union Cabinet had approved a proposal to hike dearness allowance to 90 percent from existing 80 percent.

The increase in DA to 90 percent would result in additional annual expenditure of Rs 10,879 crore.

There would be additional burden of Rs 6,297 crore on exchequer during 2013-14 on account of this hike in DA.
