Media Report : Central pay hike in January

All eyes are on the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee which will hike the basic pay from what the 7th Pay Commission had recommended. The meeting is set to be held in the month of October. After the meeting a report would be prepared. However for the basic minimum pay hike to be effective, the committee would have to give a majority vote.
Latest updates on NAC meeting Sources now confirm that the meeting will be held in October. Earlier it was slated for the last week of September, but since there were some pressing and pending issues, the meeting will now be held in October. Sources also say that the meeting is likely to be held anytime before October 15.
While the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is keen on a hike in basic minimum pay, he would however have to first approve a report to be submitted by the NAC.

Once the meeting is held, the National Anomaly Committee would submit its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The report will be submitted in December to Jaitley, sources indicate. Once the report is submitted the Finance Minister would clear the proposal paving the way for a hike in basic minimum salary for the 50 lakh Central Government employees who have been waiting for good news on the same.

Cabinet approves D.A. for central employees and pensioners from July 2017

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners. It will be applicable from 01.07.2017.
The release of the additional instalment of DA represents an increase of 1% over the existing rate of 4% of the Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise. This increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both DA and DR would be Rs.3068.26 crore per annum and Rs.2045.50 crore in the financial year 2017-18 (for a period of 8 months from July, 2017 to February, 2018). This will benefit about 49.26 lakh Central Government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.

West Bengal announces 15% D.A. for state employees w.e.f 01.01.2018

Cheers for state Govt. employees !
Chief Minister has announced a hike of 15% D.A. for state employees and pensioners with effect from 1st January next year. She also promised to make all efforts to clear remaining pending D.A. within 2019.
She said that extra 4500 crores will be needed to meet the expense of 15% D.A. She also assured the hearing of pay commission to continue as usual.

Will there be any D.A. announcement for West Bengal employees ?

Update at 5 PM : D.A. announced w.e.f. 1st Jan'18
Click here for details
There is widespread discussion among the West Bengal employees that there may be some good news in terms of D.A. today. Chief Minister of Bengal will address a meeting of the association of state Govt. employees today and it is very much expected that there will be an announcement of releasing a part of pending D.A.
While most of the states are paying D.A. at a much higher rate and some states have already implemented new pay scale for their employees, WB has always been a backbencher.
The pay commission formed to enhance the pay scale did not make any remarkable progress in last two years.
A court case for releasing of D.A is currently under hearing and the Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court has made some positive observation in this regard. So pressure is mounting on the ruling party and Government.
Let's wait and see whether the gap of pay is reduced today, at least to a small extent.

Central Govt. likely to hike minimum pay and fitment factor

After the government cleared the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, it is set to increase the minimum pay. This would be effective January 1 2016.
The demand by the unions is to increase the basic minimum pay from Rs 18,000 to Rs 25,000. Under consideration is those employees who work well but are low paid. The government feels that there would be no harm in increase the basic minimum pay if the lower paid employees work well. This would provide to solve employees' economic problems, eliminating poverty and stimulating the economy.
There is some scope to change in minimum pay to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000, which was approved by the cabinet, as per sources from Finance Ministry.
The central government employees unions are demanding for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and the and asked to raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times.
The government had formed a 22-member National Anomaly Committee headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) in September, 2016 to look into pay anomalies arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations.
After due hearing and by majority vote of all its stakeholders, the National Anomaly Committee may recommend to hike minimum pay to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000.
It is not clear whether the fitment factor will be increased for all employees or not.
