Unhappy over pay hike, central employees to agitate for 3 days

The Constituent Unions of National Council Joint Consultative Machinery of Central Government employees has called for a three-day agitation, from January 19 -21,  to draw the attention of central government to modifications it is seeking in the recommendations of  the 7th Central Pay Commission.
The unions called an agitation after the Cabinet gave its approval for constitution of an Empowered Committee to study the 7th Pay Commission report for implementation Process.
We don’t think that the pay matrix recommended by 7th CPC is final, we won’t accept the fitment factor recommended by the Commission, the union leaders voiced unanimously.
They said that the take-home pay is very much less when compared to previous pay commissions. If the Central Government accepts to increase the Minimum Pay, then that would be the criteria for arriving subsequent pay scales. Hence expecting changes in Pay Matrix is inevitable.

Media report indicates late implementation of seventh pay

The announcement of a deferral is expected to be part of Jaitley's Budget speech on February 29

With a massive financial resource crunch estimated for 2016-17, the government is planning to defer the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission award.

Last week, the Union Cabinet approved the formation of an empowered committee of secretaries to work out ways for staggering the award through more than one financial year, instead of letting the Rs 1,02,100-crore bill from the implementation of the award come up at one go.

A top-ranked official said one of the options for the empowered committee was to defer the increase in allowances for central government employees, while letting the rise in pay for all scales to go through. According to finance ministry figures, the ratio of allowances to pay for these 4.7 million employees is 1:1.4. For instance, the Budget estimates in 2015-16 pegged the salary bill for all central government employees at Rs 60,731 crore, whereas the tab for allowances is Rs 84,437.4 crore.
