7th CPC: CGA warns employees against going on strike

7th CPC: CGA warns employees against going on strike

Employees are opposing several of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations

The Controller General of Accounts (CGA) has warned its employees that proceeding on strike could lead to wage cuts or even dismissal. This, after the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and the All India Association of Pay and Accounts officers joined the call for an indefinite strike from July 11 in protest against several recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

The strike call, issued by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) representing trade unions of railway, defence, postaland other central government employees, is to protest against the computation of minimum wage as recommended by the Seventh Pay Commission, which is to be implemented this year. “There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike,” the circular issued by the CGA, in possession of The Hindu, said.

“The Supreme Court (in a previous case) also agreed that going on strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law.”

The strike was supposed to have begun on April 11, but was postponed to July 11.

As per media report, increased salary of July will be credited to the 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners' accounts on August 1, 2016.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries is functioning as a Screening Committee to process the recommendations with regard to all relevant factors of the Commission in an expeditious detailed and holistic fashion.

CURRENT NEWS ON 7CPC-Empowered Committee meeting cancelled

Internal meeting of group of secretaries scheduled on 11.06.2016 on 7th Pay commission didn’t take place

Internal meeting of group of secretaries which was scheduled to be held on 11.06.2016 has been cancelled. Meeting didn’t take place at all. Shri P.K. Sinha Cabinet Secretary is heading the committee of Group of Secretaries.

On the clarion call of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), against the retrograde recommendations of the VII CPC, 11-point Charter of demands of the Central Government employees as also non-settlement of long pending genuine demands of the Railwaymen, AIRF and its affiliates organized huge demonstrations at all Zonal Headquarters of Indian Railways on 9 June 2016. On this occasion the employees of Indian Railway participated in mass demonstrations with full enthusiasm with holding banners in hand and shouting slogans for early redressal of their long pending genuine demands.

On the one hand AIRF and its affiliates are fighting for the cause of Railway employees and on the other hand rumour mongers are spreading false news through social media. Rumour mongers are coming out daily with different kind of news and pay scales about 7th Pay Commission. They have even declared that government would take a final call on 7th Pay Commission during internal meeting of group of secretaries on 11th of June, 2016.

We will update on the issue soon. Please don’t believe rumour mongers on What’sAPP, Facebook and other social media sources.

We request all comrades to not to believe such rumour mongers. These fellows have no benefits but to lighten the feelings of agitated working class. AIRF urge comrades to be prepared for Indefinite strike which is scheduled on 11, July 2016 at 06:00 AM.

7th Pay Commission: Govt employees may get 30% more than recommended by panel

The buzz around the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission (7th CPC) is increasing, both with regard to the date of implementation and the quantum of hike that will benefit about 47 lakh Central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.

While it was earlier reported the minimum monthly basic salary will be Rs. 24,000 — Rs. 6,000 more than the sum recommended by the 7th CPC — it is now being speculated the committee formed to oversee the implementation of the recommendations may increase the minimum and maximum monthly salary by 30 percent, as reported by Zee News.

The channel also said the meeting of the empowered committee of secretaries headed by cabinet secretary P K Sinha did not take place last Saturday and is likely to be held either on Monday or Tuesday.

The revised salaries are likely to reflect in the July pay of government employees. "Central government employees could get the revised pay-scales with their July salaries that would be credited on Aug. 1," the Financial Express quoted finance ministry officials as saying.

The 7th CPC had recommended a minimum monthly basic salary of Rs. 18,000 and maximum Rs. 2,50,000. A 30 percent increase would translate into minimum salary of Rs. 23,400 and maximum at Rs. 3,25,000, respectively.

The overall financial impact on the Central government arising out of the implementation of the recommendations of the 7th CPC is expected at Rs. 1,02,100 crore for the current fiscal.

Salaries and allowances without the implementation of the recommendations would have been Rs. 4,33,500 crore. If the recommendations in their present form are implemented, the salary and allowances bill would go up to Rs. 5,35,600 crore, a rise of 23.55 percent (Rs. 1,02,100 crore).
