The outcome of announcement on setting up of 7th Pay commission

The outcome of announcement on setting up of 7th Pay commission

The 7th pay commission announcement was really unexpected surprise at this juncture for everyone. At the time of facing financial crisis, no one has expected that the central government would announce its decision on constituting 7th pay commission soon. Really all the central government employees are excited about this when the central government made this announcement. Even all the central government employees’ federations were not aware of this move of the central government in advance.

Though all the trade unions and its federations started adopting resolution on demanding the central government to constitute 7th pay commission in its annual conferences, the federations have no faith on central government would take up this demand seriously. As speculated by news media, there might be some political reasons involved in this decision. But the central government has to fulfill the commitment made by the Finance Minister on 25/9/2013 on the issue of setting up of 7th pay commission. Through this announcement the central government made all the 50 lakh central government employees and 30 lakh pensioners happy. But this is a win-win situation for both, the central government and its employees. Apart from the financial constraint, by announcing 7th pay commission the central government almost settled three core issues of trade unions indirectly. Settled in the term, it has been made that this demand would not be raised again.

1. Merger of 50 % Dearness Allowance with Basic Pay.

After the central government’s approval for setting up of seventh pay commission, this demand would be considered loses its merits. So it is feared that this demand may not be taken up by the government for consideration.

2. The long pending anomalies discussed in the National Anomaly Committee to be settled.

The National Anomaly Committee meeting may not take place anymore, as all the anomalies pending with national anomaly committee would be forwarded to 7th Pay Commission.

3. Strike Ballot on Demands declared by Railway and Defence Federations

After this announcement, the proposed strike ballot may be withdrawn and strike action if any called by federations will be considered as against the interest of central government employees and the nation.

7th Pay Commission – Expectations and Suggestions

7th Pay Commission – Expectations and Suggestions

 We are all aware about the announcement on forming of 7th Pay Commission during the last week. It is our moral responsibility to convey our gratitude to the Central Government and the Unions which were continuously giving voice to this effect. The main reasons for the announcement regarding the forming of 7th Pay Commission as stated are:

The first reason as considered is being the oncoming election in order to take the efforts to obtain the votes. The second reason is to form pay commission every time and by way of allotment of sizable amount for the sake of the same, the problems like inflation are bound to happen in the country. For that, by way of forming of Pay Commission earlier, as stated by the Government, huge amount are being allotted for the sake of the same  in order to avoid the impact at the later stage caused owing to that.

After forming of the 7th Pay Commission, lots of expectations have been created in the minds of Central Government Staff.  When this Committee will be formed? Who are all the people deputed in this Committee? What will be the tentative date of submission of the report by them to the Government? After that, the dream of each and every Government employee would be what will be the quantum of hike? In that, what are all the concessions would be incorporated? Likewise, various questions and expectations would arise in the minds of each and every person.

We are all aware that the contents of the 6th Pay Commission had contained many deficiencies and fulfillments. After the implementation of the 6th Pay Commission, we would have noticed about the problem as ‘one increment’ through National Anomaly was finalized and we have received arrears of amount based on that. We all know that there were many finalized problems of such nature and unsolved problems.

Meanwhile, eagerness is generated in the minds of all the people as to what would be the outcome by forming of 7th Pay Commission. Last AISPIN value and the procedure for calculation of DA as also based on the present price index are not found appropriate. This has been pointed out by the Confederation on many occasions.

The merger of DA with basic pay as adopted in the 5th Pay Commission has not been made applicable in the 6th Pay Commission. Non-merger of 50% DA has formed regret and dissatisfaction on the minds of all the employees.

Likewise, forming of Pay Commission once in every 10 years is considered to be quite a long period. Due to the present alarming increase of price, in order to overcome the economic problems, it is quite obvious for all to expect the consideration of the present Pay Commission about the aspects like pay revision at least once in 5 years. For this sake, efforts to involve in agitations are being announced by the Union at various levels.

Various dreams and expectations would prevail on all as regards the details that would be covered by the Pay Commission. Likewise, some would be worried about the repetition of the problems those were encountered during the 6th Pay Commission in the 7th Pay Commission also.

The Union Cabinet today approved the proposal of the Ministry of Railways for payment of Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days wages for the financial year 2012-13 for all eligible non-gazetted railway employees.

This increase of GTR was 10.13 per cent during 2011-12 as against 2010-11 and 8.71 per cent during 2010-11 as against 2009-10.

The financial implication is estimated to be Rs. 1043.43 crore. The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of PLB to eligible non-gazetted railway employees is Rs. 3500/- per month. The payment of PLB to eligible railway employees is made each year before the Dusshera / Puja holidays. About 12.37 lakh non-gazetted railway employees all over the country are likely to benefit.

Background:

The Railways were the first departmental undertaking of the Government of India where the concept of PLB was introduced. The PLB Scheme for the Railways came into force from 1979-80 onwards and was evolved in consultation with the two recognized federations, that is the All India Railwaymen's Federation and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen. The scheme envisages a review every three years.
