Anna Hazare Prepares for Nationwide Protests for OROP

Anna Hazare Prepares for Nationwide Protests for OROP

Anna Hazare has announced that he will soon launch nationwide protests against the Land Acquisition Act and for the implementation of OROP.

The government under Narendra Modi is getting ready to make amendments to the current Land Acquisition Act and implement it. The new Bill was presented in the Parliament and passed. But, the upper house hasn’t yet cleared the Bill due to insufficient majority. The Bill has met with staunch opposition from the opposition parties, including Congress, and social activist Anna Hazare.

Anna Hazare, who shot to fame when he protested against corruption during the Congress regime, is now fighting with the BJP for OROP and against the land acquisition bill. Hazare had interacted with the representatives of ex-servicemen associations and had discussed the OROP issue with them. Former Colonel Dinesh Nain, and Brigadier Kartar Singh had participated in the meeting which took place at Anna Hazare’s hometown of Ralegan Siddhi.

Speaking to the newspersons after the meeting, Hazare said, “BJP, in its election campaign, had assured that it will implement One Rank One Pension if it is voted to power. More than a year has passed since it took over, and nothing has happened. Why is it not showing the same eagerness with which it is trying to implement the Land Acquisition Act, to OROP too?

Stressing both the demands, Hazare has announced that he will launch an indefinite fast from Gandhi Jayanti day (October 2) onwards.

Expected Date for Submission of 7th Pay Commission Report and its important recommendations- Sources

Expected Date for Submission of 7th Pay Commission Report and its important recommendations- Sources

As the 7th pay Commission itself declared that the work of compilation and finalization of the report is underway, it is the time for expecting the date on which the report will be submitted after it is finalized. The stipulated time for submitting the report is 18 months from the date of notification issued. In a resolution dated 28th February, 2014, Government of India has appointed the Seventh Central Pay Commission comprising Justice Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur as Chairman, Shri Vivek Rae as full time Member, Dr. Ratin Roy as part time Member and Smt. Meena Agarwal as Secretary

The 7th pay commission has been given 18 months’ time from date of its constitution to make its recommendation. Hence the tentative date for submission of Report will be 30th August 2015.
The sources close to the 7th Pay Commission, on the condition of anonymity told that the 7th pay Commission Report is almost finalized and the Report is expected to be submitted on or before 14th August 2015. The Leaders representing one of the railway federations in the staff side also confirmed this news.
 According to the Sources the important Points of the Pay Commission’s Recommendations are ..
1. There will be no running Pay band and Grade Pay System
2. The uniform multiplication factor for arriving revised pay will be 2.86
3. The Pay scales will be open ended to avoid stagnation in the scales
4. The Minimum Pay will be Rs. 21000
5. The CCA will be separated into two components as it was in the fifth CPC
6. Percentage of HRA will remain same.
7. The Criteria for retirement age will be either completion of 33 Years of service or at the age of      60  Years whichever is earlier.
8. CGEGIS  Insurance Coverage and Monthly premium  will be increased
9. Classification of Posts will be Modified
10. The 7th Pay Commission recommendation will be implemented with effects from 1.1.2016.
   Further ,the sources told that the Committee of Secretaries will be appointed to study the report and analyze the financial implications upon implementation of 7th pay commission recommendation.  An ally of NCJCM Staff Side told that the Staff Side also will be invited by the third week of September 2015 by this Committee before giving its final nod for approval for this Recommendation.
          It appears that after  three decades the Pay Commission recommendations will come into force on the first day of its due date. Retrospective effect will not be required for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendation, since the notification for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations might be issued on or before 1.1.2016.  So there will be no financial burden for government on spending for payment of Arrears to this effect.
        It is indeed very good news for entire central and some State government employees community. There are expectations on its peak over 7th pay commission recommendation. Whether the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendation fulfill their expectations or not?.  Let’s hope, by the time of next month, everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.
