Central employees and pensioners to get 10% hike in D.A. from 01.07.2013

Central employees and pensioners have reason to cheer as the next D.A. hike from 1st July'13 is going to be 10%.
Dearness Allowance = (Avg of AICPI for the past 12 months – 115.76)*100/115.76
 D.A. is calculated on the average of AICPIN No.s for the last 12 months. We have got 11 of them published already and the last month (June'13) number is yet to come out. But 2/3 points increase or decrease is not going to matter this time. Whatever may the number for the last month (June'13), whether increases or decreases a couple of points, D.A. is going to be 90% of basic pay with effect from 1st July 2013.
As most of the state Governments do follow the central D.A. pattern, it may bring cheer to them also.

Central retirement at 62 ? Waiting for cabinet approval

A move is afoot to raise the retirement age of over five million central government employees from 60 to 62 years, citing the longer span of life enabling most to be fit to work, though ostensibly it may be keeping an eye on the Delhi Assembly elections due in November to influence over 80 per cent of them living in the capital.
The Ministry of Personnel and Training has forwarded a proposal in this regard to the Prime Minister's office (PMO) for inclusion in the agenda of the Cabinet for consideration, after securing consent of various ministries, sources said, claiming that it has an approval of the finance ministry. The decision will help immensely those on the verge of retirement to continue in service for two years.

Cabinet approved wage negotiation of CPSUs

Policy for wage negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs)
The Union Cabinet today approved the proposal for permitting the management of Central Public Service Enterprises (CPSEs) to initiate wage negotiations generally effective from 01.01.2012, subject to the condition that negotiated scales of pay would not come in conflict with existing scales of pay of executives / officers and non-unionized supervisors of the respective CPSEs.

This will benefit workmen of those CPSEs which opted for 5 years of wage settlement w.e.f. 01.01.2007 and they can now go for another wage negotiation for 5 years w.e.f. 01.01.2012.

Background : 

There are 260 CPSEs in the country employing 13.98 lakh persons (2.74 lakh executives, 0.31 lakh non-unionized supervisors and 10.93 lakh unionized supervisors and workmen) as on 31.3.2012. 

No decision on central staff retirement age on cabinet meeting

Though a number of newspapers and websites did spread the news that cabinet is likely to enhance central employees' retirement age by two years today, nothing of this kind has been announced after the cabinet meeting held on today, 04.06.2013.
As per information available with us, the Govt. has already taken in principle decision to extend the service for two more years and DOPT has begun to work to implement the same.
The formal announcement is yet to be made but will be within this year definitely.

Central D.A. from July'13 : Certainly heading towards 10% hike

With the release of AICPI(IW) number for April 2013, the prediction of central D.A. from 01.07.2013 gets momentum. As it has increased two points from the previous month and if the number for the next two months stay exactly same without any increase, it is sure that central employees (and the state employees subsequently) are going to get another 10% hike in Dearness Allowance from 1st July 2013. If there is slight increase in consumer price index in the next two months, the calculation will remain identical.
The final calculation can be made only after 31st July when the June index number will be made available.
