7th pay commission arrears not to push up car, house sales

7th pay commission arrears not to push up car, house sales

New Delhi: Car and house sales are not expected to go up after giving the seven months’ arrears of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations to central government employees on August 31.

As per the notification and resolution, central government employees will receive an average 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay effective from January 1, 2016.

The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

The hype around the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is completely unnecessary, as the real impact is going to be much lesser both in absolute and relative terms compared with the previous 6th Pay Commission. As such, the employees can’t spend more to buy a car or a house.

7th pay commission arrears, its nothing more than peanut for lower and middle level employees. A middle level employee will take home the 7th pay commission arrears that may range from Rs 40,000 to Rs 80,000 on August 31.

How can he purchase a car? With the take arrears salary of Rs 40,000, getting a car loan of Rs 4 lakh is a big deal for an employee. The employee has to bring in margin money to the tune of 15 per cent to 30 per cent of the loan amount, depending on banks.

So, an employee, who is to get arrears Rs 40,000, he will have to pay Rs 80,000, the margin amount for a car loan, which is 20 per cent of a car of Rs 4 lakh. It seems impossible for him to pay the margin money upfront.

Over 80 percent central government employees are working in middle and lower level rungs.

So, bankers say that the 7th pay commission arrears effect on retail lending will be a little.

The last such comprehensive hike in salaries did lead to a sharp increase in consumer spending. House, car and two-wheeler sales, for instance, recorded a sharp surge shortly after the sixth pay panel payouts.

The sixth pay commission report was submitted in 2008, with the higher salaries coming into effect retrospectively from January 1, 2006.

It entitled government employees to huge arrears, a part of which was spent on margin money for buying cars and houses.

The Finance ministry Office Memorandum No.1-5/2016-IC said on Friday, “The 7th Pay Commission arrears shall be paid in cash in one installment along with the payment of salary for the month of August 2016.”

Accordingly, The government’s overall arrears payout will be lower because of only seven months arrears this time, compared to the previous pay commission, which came in late.

It may be recalled that a month ago, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had “congratulated” central government employees after the Union Cabinet accorded its approval to the 7th pay commission recommendations.

SBI introduced new home loan products for Central/ State Govt/ PSU employees on the backdrop of 7th CPC Implementation

SBI introduced new home loan products for Central/ State Govt/ PSU employees on the backdrop of 7th CPC Implementation


With the government deciding to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on wage hike with effect from August 1, State Bank of India has introduced home loan products for central/ state government/ public sector undertaking employees and defence personnel, whereby they will get the benefit of repaying the loan over a longer period and softer interest rates.

India’s largest bank, in a statement, said government employees will have the flexibility of repaying home loan up to the age of 75 years. Under existing Home Loan schemes, repayment is normally available up to the age of 70 years only.

The bank has introduced ‘Privilege Home Loan’ for government employees and ‘Shaurya Home Loan’ for Defence Personnel with pensionable service.

Home loan borrowers under the two schemes will enjoy an interest rate concession of 5 basis points over the Home Loan Card Interest Rate. One basis point is equal to one-hundredth of a percentage point.

This concession is available wherever check-off facility (to debit the borrowers salary account) is extended by the Government under tie-up arrangement with the bank.

SBI said it will fully waive the processing fee. It also added that customers of other Banks / Financial Institutions can switchover their Home Loan outstanding balance to State Bank of India under these schemes.

The bank said the burden of servicing EMIs (equated monthly installments) under the new schemes will be lightened as lower EMIs would need to be serviced during the post-retirement term.

“The launch of ‘SBI Privilege Home Loan’ and ‘SBI Shaurya Home Loan’ products is timed with the notification of 7th Pay Commission recommendations by the Government.

“Surplus income can thus be utilized by Government Employees and Defence Personnel towards purchase of new / better houseSurplus income can thus be utilized by Government Employees and Defence Personnel towards purchase of new / better house,” the bank said.

Com. B Samal, Divnl. Secy, AIPEU, Gr.-C, Bhubaneswar & Vice-President, Odisha Circle writes to NFPE / Confederation on difficulty in fixing the pay under CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 in case of bunching

New Delhi

2.     Com. R N Parashar
Secretary General NFPE & General Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, CHQ
Dada Ghosh Bhawan, New Delhi-110 008

Sub:   Difficulty in fixing the pay under CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 in case of bunching.  

Ref.-   1.       Para 5.1.36 & 5.1.37 of the Report of 7th CPC
          2.       Rule 7 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016

This has a reference to the recommendations of 7th CPC under Para 5.1.36 and Para 5.1.37 which state as follows.

Para : 5.1.36 :  Although the 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.

Para : 5.1.37 :  For instance, if two persons drawing pay of ₹53,000 and ₹54,590 in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the person drawing pay of ₹53,000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to ₹1,36,210 and the person drawing pay of ₹54,590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to ₹1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of level 15 in the pay of ₹1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the person drawing pay of ₹54,590 will get fixed in second cell of level 15 in the pay of ₹1,48,500.

But while instructing fixation of pay in the revised pay structure under Rule 7 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, no guideline has been issued in this regard which may cause difficulty if situation does arise whenever more than two stages are bunched together.

Thus, in the absence of clear instructions, the process of  fixation of pay and calculation of arrears in the revised pay structure will be delayed.

Therefore, it is requested to bring this shortcoming in the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 to the notice of the competent authority to issue suitable guidelines immediately on bunching so that revised pay can be fixed correctly and disbursed to the employees in time along with arrears.

        With greetings.

This point is brought to our notice from Bangalore.  On this account fixation need not be delayed. Drawl of Bunching increment and fixation can be done later when Govt order comes. Now fixation should be done as per the present order. As I have already informed you this case also will be taken up for early orders.

Some Clarifications on MACP - Fixation



As per CCS (RP) rule 5 the option of switching over to revised pay is available for those who are promoted/ upgraded between 1st day of January 2016 and date of notification of this rule I.e 25.7.16 ..

The date of promotion in October will not be covered by this Perhaps the option for fixation of pay till next increment on 1.7.17 is possible as per the rule meant for promotion under FR 22

Thanks to Shri. Saravanan, Tiruvannamalai

Railway employees to have new uniforms designed by Ritu Beri

fashion designer Ritu Beri

New Delhi: Five lakh railway employees comprising front office staff, TTEs, guards, drivers and catering personnel will soon don new uniforms created by fashion designer Ritu Beri woven around the theme of Indian culture.

Beri submitted four different sets of uniform, each with a distinct texture, to the Railway Ministry five days back and the public transporter will soon launch an online initiative on Twitter, Facebook and the ministry’s website seeking the views of people to help it select the attire.

In the first phase, the new uniform will be issued to five lakh of 13 lakh employees of the Indian Railway.

Beri said the look of the uniform will be an ode to India and her exoticism.

“The focus is to reflect modern India while respecting our deep-rooted tradition and culture, thus reflecting the glory of India. The uniforms will be Indo-western in cut and silhouette with comfort being the most important factor,” she said.

The idea behind introducing the new uniform is to instill a sense of pride and belonging among the staff rendering their services to around two crore passengers every day, a senior official involved in the project said.

He said, in the first phase, front office staff, guards, drivers and catering personnel, onboard staff, station masters, loco pilots, train ticket examiners and gangmen will be given the uniform at an estimated cost about Rs 50 crore. The new uniform will also be given to the technical staff in workshops and production units.

Currently, railway staff including TTEs, station masters and guards wear uniforms which were designed long ago.

Beri’s new collection includes sarees and T-shirts.

The new dress is expected to be ready for use by the year-end, the official said, adding a common uniform can be worn for ceremonial occasions like celebration of Railway Day, sporting events and prize distribution ceremonies.

One of the designs Beri has submitted is based on tribal art, while the other is inspired by rustic coins and currency of the ‘golden period’ of the country. The third is based on the legacy of nawabs, while fourth is inspired by pop art. The fourth option, classified as vibrant soul of India, reflects elements of culture, business, music and entertainment.

“The work on the uniform designs is in progress. For now,

we have made the first presentation. We have worked very hard for two months and researched on various possibilities. We will work with Khadi, our national fabric, which also works well given our climate conditions.

“The idea is to create uniforms that are attractive, impactful and comfortable at the same time. I wish to retain our traditional look but give it a modern twist in keeping with today’s times,” Beri told

There flows a business: Health worries over bottled Ganga jal sold by govt

Hindustan Times, Dehradun | Jul 31, 2016
Rishikesh post office has so far collected approximately 28,000 litres of Ganja Jal, This is enough to make 1.40 lakh bottles of 200 ml each. (HT Photo)

It’s a forenoon hour, and the small post office alongside the Ganga is bustling with activity. Ratan Rawat, the postmaster, is busy taking phone calls on the landline as well as his cell phone.

“Ho jayega sir, saari cans jald aa jayengi (Yes sir, will ensure that all the cans reach soon),” he speaks reassuringly to his senior at the other end. As the head of the staff totaling six, Rawat inspects the plastic cans filled with Ganga jal collected from the river bank, just across the road.

For a month now, this post office in this pilgrim city in Uttarakhand is sending the holy water to Delhi. At a facility in the national capital, it is filled in bottles of 200 and 500-ml capacity before they are distributed for retail sale to post offices across the country.

It was in May this year that Union communication and information technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced making Ganga jal available at post offices and on e-commerce platforms. The idea of selling the holy water proved to be an instant hit after the scheme launched on July 10.

The Ganga jal is collected from two places in Uttarakhand: Rishikesh and, further up, Gangotri. “Initially, we used to pack and dispatch 25 cans of 20 litres each a day,” says Rawat. “These days, we collect 100 cans—or 2,000 liters per day. That is enough to make 10,000 bottles of 200ml each.”

A 200ml Ganga jal bottle collected from Rishikesh costs Rs 15, while the price is Rs 22 for 500 ml. The Gangotri water is collected from Gomukh—the origin of the 2,525km river. The purity quotient is up at the glacier area, and so are the costs. It’s Rs 25 for the 200ml bottle, Rs 35 for 500ml.

The post office at Gomukh, which is situated 13,200 feet above the sea level, is opened for only six summer months any year. July being a monsoon month, its roads face repeated blocks. “So, we have temporarily stopped collecting water from Gomukh” says GD Arya, superintendent (postal) for Tehri Garhwal zone.

At the Rishikesh post office, the staff members take turns to monitor the water-collection work and count the packed bottles. “At times, we feel a little overloaded,” shrugs Rawat. “But it is all about service to society.”

At the Ganga bank that overlooks the famed suspension bridge called Ram Jhula, young Ram Singh collects muddy Ganga jal in cans. Two fellow labourers join the 32-year-old local man.

“It’s an earning season for us,” says Singh. “We get Rs 1000 for 3 to 4 hours of work. Not bad.”

Rains in the upper stream have made the Ganga water particularly muddy. “Our job is to collect in the raw form,” adds Singh.

A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC
As per this current DA calculator.6th pay DA would be 7% and7th pay DA is 2% from July on-wards.Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike.7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor.

For example…If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400.So as per DA calculator, 7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400 . 2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay will be 1028.So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration.In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended.Suppose if we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400.And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to 3.5…!!!If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years.SOURCE-Central Government Employees News
