Expectation from seventh pay commission - media report

Following is the excerpt of a media report published in The Economic Times on 29th March 2015.
"Welcome to the behind-the-scenes manoeuvring before the Big Sarkari Pay Hike. With a new pay scale for 36 lakh Central government employees, and also pensioners, likely to come into effect from January 1, 2016, the officers and non-gazetted staff of various services have been lobbying hard to get a good deal from the 7th CPC. Unlike in the private sector, the pay hike in government is a once-in-10-years-affair, making every CPC, right from the first that submitted its report in 1947, a hugely powerful agency. No doubt, government employees have to undergo an annual appraisal process called Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR), but that exercise is important only for promotion, and not for any pay hike. Government employees do get a regular hike in dearness allowance, a measure meant for offsetting inflationary pressure on their earnings, but at the end of the day it is the CPC that fixes the bureaucrats' pay for 10 long years.

One Rank One Pension
OROP to be finalized in April and payment of arrears to be paid in four installments starting from May 2015. Defence Minister has assured a delegation of armymen in this regard.

Pension Issue
In a bonanza to retired employees of the armed forces, the Supreme Court today directed the Centre to pay at least 50 per cent of the pay as pension to all of them as recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC).
A Bench headed by Justice TS Thakur passed the order while dismissing about 50 appeals filed by the Centre challenging the rulings of various high courts and armed forces tribunals (AFTs). The HCs and AFTs had struck down the office memorandums (OMs) assessing the pension amount at less than 50 per cent for some categories of pensioners.

Likely pay scale of seventh pay commission

Everyday a large number of viewers ask for estimated pay scale of seventh pay commission. Why PAYCOMMISSION is silent on this issue ? Because as far as we know, the seventh pay commission has not even prepared a draft pay scale yet ! They are still busy in collection of data and inputs from service organizations, different authorities etc. But the employees are eager to know the actual increase payable from 1st January of next year. After the recently signed Bank Bipartite the curiosity grew manifold.
Based on purely assumption we reproduce a possible pay scale for the satisfaction of our viewers but it may not be considered authentic anyway.

In West Bengal, like most other part of the country, life practically comes to a halt as public transport is rarely visible in the day of festival of colour and it will be really hard for the office goers to find any transport tomorrow. As per the news available with us, service associations are trying hard to get the holiday changed but upto nearly 6 PM, no update is available with us.
Stay tuned for any possible update.
