Probable Central D.A. from 1st January 2018

With the increase of AICPIN number for October 2017 by two point, everybody is waiting to know the probable DA from 1.1.2018.

If it is assumed that current level (287) is maintained in the next two months, there will be an increase of 2% D.A. / D.R. payable from 1st January 2018. The position can change only if the number drastically increases or decreases in the next two months.
So it can be predicted that there will be an increase of 3% D.A. / D.R. from 1st January 2018.

Maharashtra government looks to cut 30% of workforce

In a move that can only be described as bitter irony, the Maharashtra government is looking to shave its workforce by 30 per cent so that it can afford to pay the remaining employees as per the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations that are due to be implemented soon.
Faced with a mounting salary bill, the finance department in May issued a Government Resolution (GR) asking all departments to submit new masterplans on their staffing needs.
The GR noted that for long-term financial stability, the increase in expense on salaries should not be more than the average rise in revenues. It stressed that "different departments must cut the demand for human resources by 30 percent by trying to bring in efficiency through use of information technology".

Rajasthan government announces arrears for employees

he Rajasthan government on Saturday announced that it will provide benefits under the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations to nearly 12.5 lakh employees and pensioners in the state with effect from January 1, 2017.
The move will put an additional burden of ₹10,400 crore every year on the government and the arrears will be paid in three installments, state Industries Minister Rajpal Singh Shekhawat said in a news conference.
The decision was taken on the basis of a report summated by the DC Samant committee that was formed to examine and implement the recommendations of the seventh pay commission in the state.
The arrears will be effective from January 1, 2017 and will be given in three installments – 30% in April 2018, 30% in July 2018 and 40% in October 2018, the minister said.
Shekhawat said under the pay commission, government employees and pensioners will get a minimum increment of 14. 22%.
There will be minimum 32% increase in the basic pay and employees will get over 100% increased house rent allowance, he said, adding that the maximum limit of payable gratuity was increased from ₹10 lakh to ₹20 lakh.
Earlier, chief minister Vasundhara Raje had announced to implement the recommendations of the pay commission before Diwali and had also released a notification, saying that the arrears will be in effect from October 1, 2017.
But state government employees are unhappy with the announcement.
Reacting to the government’s decision, Akhil Rajasthan Rajya Karamchari Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti member Tej Singh Rathore said the government has made an incomplete announcement to crush the employee’s agitation and the proposed Aakrosh rally on Sunday.
State government employees’ union were, however, angry over arrears not being given from October, and had threatened to stage a statewide Aakrosh rally from December 3.
