Central Government employees getting restive over several issues – Com. S.G. Mishra

Central Government employees getting restive over several issues – Com. S.G. Mishra

Despite the largesse it gave to its 48 lakh employees and 55 lakh pensioners, at an estimated cost of Rs. 1.02 lakh crore with 23.55 per cent hike in pay and allowances, the 7th Pay Commission continues to be a source of an irritant for the Narendra Modi government as issues on allowances are not settled.

The Centre had set up a ‘Committee on Allowances’ which met last Thursday under the chairmanship of the Union Secretary, Finance (Expenditure), with representatives of government staff unions.

A brief (www.ncjcmstaffside.com) on the meeting the same day by Shiva Gopal Mishra, Secretary (Staff Side), National Council/Joint Consultative Machinery for central employees, shows the unions are getting restive over several issues.

At the meeting, representatives of the unions expressed their anguish over ‘non-formation of a high-level committee’. According to them, it was agreed upon in July by the Group of Ministers for settling the issue of Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor. The unions want the ‘minimum wage’ for central employees to be fixed at Rs. 26,000 as opposed to Rs. 18,000 recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission. “The Secretary, Finance (Expenditure), told that, the committee constituted under the chairmanship of Addl. Secretary (Exp.) with J.S. (Pers.), JS (Estt.) and JS(Imp.) as Members has been made only for this purpose. Let us believe that, after the meeting, report of the said committee would be sent to the Government of India for its acceptance,” Mr. Mishra noted.

Te unions made a strong case for implementation of the allowances to be decided by the committee from January 1, 2016. Besides, they wanted that House Rent Allowance be fixed at the range of 10 to 30 per cent of the basic linked to the classification of the town of posting, children education Allowance of Rs. 3,000 and hostel subsidy of Rs. 10, 000.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Recommendations of the 7th Central pay Commission - bunching of stages in the revised pay structure under Central Civil Services (Revised pay) Rules, 2016.

The undersigned is directed to say that in view of the recommendation of the 7th Central pay Commission regarding bunching of stages in the revised pay structure. It has been decided that in cases where in revision of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at two or more stages in pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale, as the case may be, get fixed at same Cell in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of Government servant drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level.

2. For this purpose, pay drawn by two Government servants in a given Pay Band and Grade pay or scale where the higher pay is at least 3% more than the lower pay shall constitute two stages. Officers drawing pay where the difference is less than 3% shall not be entitled for this benefit.

3.  As per illustration given in para 5.1.37 of the Report of the 7th Central Pa Commission, if two persons drawing pay of 53,000 and 54,590 in the GP 10,000  are to be fitted in the new Pay Matrix. the person drawing pay of 53,000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1,36,210 and the person drawing pay of Rs.54,590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1.40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of Level 14 in the pay of Rs.1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the person drawing pay of Rs. 54,590 will get fixed in second cell of Level 14 in the pay of 1,48,500.

This will also enable them to carry the rich experience of implementing e-Office in Central Ministries / Departments to the Districts and States to which they have been allotted so that they can use this knowledge in their day-to-day activities. 

The Workshop will also be attended by Shri C. Viswanath, Secretary (DARPG), Ms. Usha Sharma, Additional Secretary, DARPG and Shri Santhosh Mathew, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Rural Development.
