7th Pay Commission: Central govt employees term it discriminatory

Expressing deep grievance at the proposed pay scales of 7th Pay Commission, central government employees said on Sunday, virtually it would further deprive them financially let alone increase salaries compared to benefits offered to civil services officers.

“It will just further widen the discrimination between others central government employees and civil services officers,” said a central government employees’ association leader.

It is absolutely an erroneous statement disseminated in the public domain that the pay will hike 30 percent of all central government employees, he said.

“The pay scale of 7th Pay Commission will benefit the salaries of only IAS, IPS, IRS and other services’ officers while Group B and C, who constitute 85 percent of all central government employees, will have no such benefit,” he added.

Central government employees’ associations demanded that the government immediately reviews the scale. keeping Rs 26,000 instead of the proposed Rs 18,000 as employees’ minimum pay.

They submitted their demands through the Empowered Committee of Secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha, which was set up in January to examine the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission before cabinet nod, which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.

The Central government employees’ associations said, “not at all happy” with the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and, in fact, “no section of the Gruop B and C employees is satisfied”, as the Commission has recommended a minimal pay increase as compared to the previous Pay Commissions., they added.

The associations further stated that an amicable and mutually negotiated settlement of minimum pay is necessary as “non-acceptance would further cause resentment in the central government employees”

We already made our stand clear before the government to go on strike from April 11 if our demands are not considered and no amicable settlement happens”, the leaders of associations said.

“The proposed pay scale increased the pay gap between the minimum and maximum from existing 1:12 to 1: 13.8. While all pay commissions made up pay gap between employees and civil services officers from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12, except it,” they added.

The report of the Seventh Pay Commission was presented to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in November with a recommendation for raising minimum pay to Rs 18,000 per month from current Rs 7,000 while the maximum pay, drawn by the Cabinet Secretary, has been fixed at Rs 2.5 lakh per month from current Rs 90,000, which will be effective from January 1, 2016.

The panel recommended a 14.27 per cent increase in basic pay. The overall increase in salary, allowances and pensions is 23.55%. The increase in allowances will be higher by 63% while pensions will rise 24%.
