7th Pay Commission – Government is ready to negotiate on salary increase: Arun Jaitley

7th Pay Commission – Government is ready to negotiate on salary increase: Arun Jaitley, Please read this news paper report published in Hindi Daily:-

Anomaly in Pension Fixation as per Recommendations of 7th Pay Commission

There is an anomaly in pension fixation of pre-2016 pensioners as per 7th CPC recommendations. The 7th CPC has offered two options.

Option I:

Pension calculated by multiplying pension fixed by VI CPC by a multiplying factor of 2.57.

Option II:

Notional pay to be determined by multiplying entry pay under appropriate e Grad Pay and Level taking into consideration number of increments earned in the pay scale from which one retires. 50 % of this notional pay is the pension w.e.f. 1-1-2016.
Whichever pension of Option I and Option II is higher is the pension.


If one gets a promotion to higher post in which he serves for less than one year there is no increment earned. 50% of this notional pay as per Pay Matrix of the VII CPC will be pension w.e.f. 1-1-2016 and this pension under Option II is always and always lower than the Pension under OPTION I. Thus, there is no choice for him.


It is common to observe that most of the pensioners retired on superannuation after serving in a higher post on promotion will be retiring within a year or so and the increments earned by them in that pay scale is nil or meager compared to the increments earned in the immediate lower pay scale from which he was promoted and this fact seems to have been given a goby. Pensioner who does not earn any increments in the pay scale on promotion which may be only an extension of the lower pay scale should have his increments earned in the lower pay scale counted for calculation of the notional pay which is a part and parcel of the pay scale to which he is promoted.

Bunching benefit in Pay Band 1 Grade Pay 1900

Bunching benefit in Pay Band 1 Grade Pay 1900

As per the 7th Pay Commission Report in page 80 para 5.1.36, it has clearly stated that rationalisation has been done with utmost care to ensure minimum bunching at most levels, however if situation does arise whenever more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment equal to 3 percent may be given for every two stages bunched, and pay fixed in the subsequent cell in the pay matrix.

According to the above statement, we have prepared new bunching table. Here we have noticed 2 bunching in Pay Band I Grade Pay 1900,

Example :

For both Basic Pay of Rs. 8990 & Rs.9260 we can see 23800 in the calculation based on 2.57 fixation as per pay matrix. In this case we have to fix the Pay as below

We also updated the bunching benefit in the 7th Pay Commission Calculator for all the grade pay. Information (in Red) will be visible only if your basic pay comes under bunching

Flaws of the 7th Pay Commission report – Have a look on future anomalies

The statistics reveals that there are 88 % of total strength of Government servants are in Group ‘C’ Category.

Obviously those who are representing these 88% at the Forums which are constituted to negotiate with concerned Departments and Government about their issues are capable of weighing the advantages and disadvantages of recommendations of 7th central pay commission.

The Staff Associations and Workers federations are the one who are representing Group C and Group B at various levels of negotiating forums know the plights and facts of government servants more than anybody. They in fact never utter a word of praise on 7th CPC recommendations since the day the report was submitted to the Finance Minister.

National Council JCM and Confederation described it as Retrograde recommendations, unexpected and un acceptable. They declared that all the central government employees are upset and dis satisfied since many of their demands were not considered by 7th pay commission.
  1. Pay Scales and allowances are arrived by multiplying 2.57, just 14.29 % increase over existing pay and Allowances after DA neutralization, take home salary of many employees is bound to decreased.
  2. The rate of HRA has been abruptly reduced, 
  3. Payment of CCL has been reduced for second 365 days. 
  4. Same confusion in MACP continues, 
  5. Uncertainty in Pension benefit in NPS continues.
  6. Existing Pension provisions are left un touched. None of the proposals submitted by Pensioners Associations are not considered. 
  7. Minimum Pay is very much less; Maximum Pay is lavishly higher. [Minimum Rs.18000 – Maximum Rs.275000], Varying multiplying factor will increase minimum to maximum pay ration infinitely high.
  8. Gap between Minimum and Maximum Pay is not reduced, but unfortunately increased. [In sixth CPC it is 1:12 , 7th CPC Recommends 1:14]
  9. All the Pay commission reduced the number of pay scales but 7th Pay commission maintained the existing pay scales, 
  10. 55 Allowances are abolished, No new allowances are introduced, 
  11. Same 3% increment continues, NCJCM demand for Two Increment Days 1st January and 1st July is not considered
  12. No considerable benefit on Promotion,
  13. Interest free advances including LTC advance are abolished, 
  14. Except the introduction of New Pay Matrix, nothing new in the recommendations of 7th Pay commission
  15. Again uniform Multiplication factor was not applied for arriving Entry Pay for various Grades.
Low value for Lower Grades high value for higher Grades. Again the disparity in arriving Entry Pay is maintained by 7th CPC also.

What sixth CPC had recommended in some cases, what Government has suggested in some issues, what the Department has told, that has been just followed by the 7th Pay commission.

So the Central government employees are expecting the Government to pay attention to the concerns of Govt servants in respect of some recommendations of 7th pay commission which need to be addressed to boost the morale of the Central Govt staffs.

The constituents of NCJCM already formed National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) to invite the attention of Central Government through agitation Programmes to settle their demands. Now they modified their charter of demands to include the issues regarding 7th Pay Commission recommendation and cautioned that unless it is not settled before March 2016, they will be going for indefinite Strike.

No Interviews For Govt Jobs From Jan 1; Skill Test May Continue: DoPT

New Delhi: All central government ministries and their Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) were today told to dispense with the requirement of interviews for selections at junior level posts within next two days, however, they may continue with skill or physical test.
Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh

The timeliness set regarding completing the process of the discontinuation of interview by December 31, 2015 has to be adhered to strictly, a communique sent by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to secretaries of all central government ministries said.

From January 1, 2016, there will be no recruitment with interview at the junior level posts in government of India ministries, departments, attached and subordinate offices, autonomous bodies and PSUs.
“All the advertisement for future vacancies will be without the interview as part of the recruitment process,” it said.
The decision to discontinue interview for recruitments is for all Group C and non-gazetted posts of Group ‘B’ category and all such equivalent posts, the DoPT said.
“It is also clarified that as skill test or physical test is different from interview, they may continue. However, these tests will only be of qualifying nature. Assessment will not be done on the basis of marks for such tests,” it said.
In case of specific posts where the ministry or department wants to continue undertaking interview as a process of recruitment, a detailed proposal seeking exemption will have to be sent to the DoPT with the approval of the minister or minister-in-charge.

The ministries have been asked to send a consolidated report to the DoPT by January 7 in this regard.

“Report so to be furnished with the approval of the minister or minister-in-charge shall include the details of the name and number of posts where the interview is discontinued and posts for which the exemption has been sought within the purview of the administrative ministries or departments,” the order said.

Similarly, the Department of Public enterprises has also asked all ministries to advise PSUs under their administrative control to adopt a revised mechanism of recruitment for the non-executive level posts by dispensing with the practice of interview.

7वे वेतन आयोग का विरोध

धनबाद : 1 जनवरी 2016 से लागू होने वाली 7वें वेतन आयोग के विरोध में आज इण्डिया अगेंस्ट करप्शन की ओर से धनबाद के रणधीर वर्मा चौक पर एक दिवसीय धरना दिया गया. धरना पर बैठे इण्डिया अगेंस्ट करप्शन के पुरुष सदस्यों ने कहा कि आगामी एक जनवरी से सातवाँ वेतन आयोग सरकार लागू करने जा रही है.

सातवे वेतन आयोग के लागू होने से एक निचले स्तर के सरकारी कर्मचारी से लेकर विधायक और सांसदों के वेतन वृद्धि तो होगी लेकिन निजी क्षेत्र में कार्य करने वाले आम जनमानस पर महंगाई का अतिरिक्त बोख बढ़ेगा. वहीँ महिला सदस्यों ने कहा कि जिस प्रकार फिनलैंड में प्रत्येक नागरिको को 58000 रूपये पेंशन फिनलैंड सरकार द्वारा दिया जा रहा उसी प्रकार भारत के महिलाओं को दो हजार रूपये पेंशन दिया जाना चाहिए तभी महिला सशक्तिकरण को आगे बढ़ाया जा सकता है.

Central Govt Employees Fear Delay In Implementation Of Pay Commission Award

New Delhi: Central government employees are being promised bigger pay hike from next year but implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission Award is making very slow and painful progress.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley

Central government employees have expressed frustration at this, and are worried that the Seventh Pay Commission’s recommendations might not be implemented on time.

The Finance Minister Arun Jaitley promised in the Parliament on February 27 to implement the pay commission’s recommendations from next year and said “the Seventh Pay Commission impact may have to be absorbed in 2016-17.”

After receiving the Seventh Pay Commission report, the Finance Ministry has set up a cell in Expenditure Department headed by a Joint Secretary for a period of one year with effect from November 20, 2015 for implementation the recommendations of the Commission.

Giving one year time to implementation cell to process the the Seventh Pay Commission report to implement may hamper timely implementation as the cell would be placed it before the cabinet for its nod through the group of secretaries of revision pay panel report headed by cabinet secretary. which is also a time taking process.

It is also noted, the central government appointed senior IAS officer R K Chaturved as the head of the cell after one moth of its set up.

There are several states who have approached the Prime Minister’s Office, Cabinet Secretary and Niti Aayog, seeking more time in implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission’s report.

West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Odisha governments suggested delay in implementation of Seventh Commission’s recommendation for central government employees will give them more time to equip themselves with resources to meet Seventh Pay Commission Award for their employees.

The Seventh Pay Commission had last month submitted its report to the Ministry of Finance. It had recommended a 23.55 per cent increase in salary, allowances and pension of government staff, involving an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore in 2016-17. This is less than the overall hike of the Sixth Central Pay Commission.

The Seventh Pay Commission recommendations will benefit 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners. It will lead to an additional outgo of Rs 73,650 crore from the Union Budget and Rs 28,450 crore from Railway Budget.

The new pay scales, subject to acceptance by the government, will come into effect from January 1, 2016.

The government constitutes the Pay Commission almost every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modifications.

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