The BJP government of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh on Thursday announced a hike of 10 per cent in dearness allowance (DA).

The decision comes as a bonanza for a large number of employees and pensioners ahead of the festive season.

“The decision to hike 10 per cent DA of state government employees and pensioners was taken by the cabinet at its meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan,” Public Relations and Culture Minister Laxmikant Sharma said.

With this 10 per cent hike, the total DA component will be 90 per cent of the basic salary, he said, adding that it would be paid with effect from July 1, 2013.

The DA of Madhya Pradesh government employees will now be almost at par with their Central government counterparts.

Retirement Age may go up 62 Years in view of 7th CPC

7th Pay panel formed, retirement age may go up 62 yrs: Money Control

The award of the seventh pay commission will be implemented from the beginning of 2016 and will benefit nearly 3 million pensioners. But since state governments generally match central wages, the actual beneficiary list stands at over 11 million employees and pensioners.

The national capital, home to a vast majority of central government employees, is headed for elections this November. And so are four other states, followed by the general elections sometime early next year. This, more than anything else, explains the central government’s hurry to promise its employees higher wages.

The award of the seventh pay commission will be implemented from the beginning of 2016 and will benefit nearly 3 million pensioners. But since state governments generally match central wages, the actual beneficiary list stands at over 11 million employees and pensioners. The fact that this award is one more in a long list of expenditure-heavy pre-election programmes, will mean several consequences for India’s finances. Back of envelope calculations suggest that even if the increments in the 6th pay commission were to be matched, the centre’s wage bill could rise by up to Rs 1 lakh crore in 2016. But on the other hand, this payout will spark a surge in consumption starting that year. Why? The sixth pay commission award amounted to around 0.5 percent of GDP and a tidy sum was handed out as arrears in the start of 2008. That extra spending power meant that the ensuing slowdown was mitigated to some extent. This could play out again in 2016.

Meanwhile, CNBC TV18 learns that the proposal to extend the retirement age of central government employees by two years has received fresh impetus. A decision on this could be taken within a week or two, and would be the second major populist decision by the UPA to woo the urban middle class and the powerful government employee mass in Indian society.

Central Union welcomes 7th Pay Comm; seeks revision every 5 yrs

Central Union welcomes 7th Pay Comm; seeks revision every 5 yrs

New Delhi: Trade union representing central government employees today welcomed the announcement to set up the 7th Pay Commission, but demanded that recommendation be implemented with retrospective effect from January 1, 2011.

The government has announced constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission, which will look into the salaries, allowances and pensions of about 80 lakh of its employees and pensioners.
“We welcome the government’s move to set up the 7th Pay Commission but we have a reservation. It should be implemented with effect from January 1, 2011 as in the case of Central PSUs whose employee pay scales are revised every five years,” Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers President K K N Kutty said.

Earlier in the day, Finance Minister P Chidambaram said in a statement that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission and its recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from January 1, 2016.

Kutty said that during the discussion, the Confederation would press for merger of up to 50 percent of dearness allowance with the basic pay, which is a prerequisite for setting up a pay commission.
As per the practice, the dearness allowance is hiked twice in a year by the Central Government to provide relief from inflation to its employees.

This is based on a set formula after factoring in the year-long average of all India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers.

The merger of DA with basic pay helps central government employees as certain allowances are paid as proportion of the basic pay and hence merger results in higher allowances.
