Prime Minister asks for maximum benefit and early implementation of 7th CPC award

May be finalized in two months
In relief to Central government employees and pensioners, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked a Committee of Secretaries to accept the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations without diluting them to provide maximum benefits to over 47 lakh government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.
The empowered committee, which was headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha and comprised of  12 Secretaries, was set up on January 27 to process the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
A top official in the government told Express that the Committee has been asked to speed up the review so that the Cabinet can  take a decision and the 7th Pay Commission award can be released at the earliest to the employees and pensioners.
“The government feels that recommendations to  introduce a health insurance scheme for staff and pensioners and double gratuity should not be diluted. The committee has been told to address the genuine concerns raised by stakeholders and accommodate their demands as much as possible. Although, there is indication that the committee may suggest some changes keeping in mind representations from middle and junior level, the decision will be taken after consultations with all the stakeholders. The entire process will take a couple of months,” the official added.
The pay panel recommended 23.55 per cent increase in pay and allowances and also recommended fixing minimum pay at Rs 18,000 per month and maximum at Rs 2.55 lakh. The ceiling of gratuity has been increased from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh and 24 per cent hike has been recommended in pensions.
The Committee has secretaries from the Finance Ministry, Home, Defence, Department of Personnel and Training, Department of Pension, Revenue, Expenditure, Health, Post, Science & Technology on board. Besides, Chairman, Railway Board, Deputy Comptroller & Auditor General and Secretary (Security) are also on the board. The committee may co-opt with any other Secretary, whenever found necessary.
The committee will also examine the views of the concerned stakeholders including staff associations before finalising it for Cabinet approval.

This is the worst pay commission. What Modi is talking has no meaning. People are not very enthusiastic about its implementation too.

Government should realise that this pay commission report for next ten years and it is a meager hike and even who are stayed in the government accommodation, they will get lesser amount (take home pay) after implementation of 7th CPC. There are also so many anomalous condition in respect to different board i.e. CBEC and CBDT under the same department as well as Ministry of Finance. The disparities should be removed.

anomaly in fixation of pension is that an employee with 10 increments in one grade pay and retired after 1-1-2016 will get more pension fixation than an employee with 10 increments in same Grade Pay but got promotion just few months before 1-1-2016 and also retired in December 2015 will get lesser fixation of pension as he did not any increment in new grade pay
