RATIONALE BEHIND DEMAND FOR 7TH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
Due to no response from the Central Govt. to the proposal for a fruitful discussion on a 15-point charter of demands which includes revision of wages from January 01, 2011 by setting up of 7th Central Pay Commission(CPC) and Merger of 50% DA with Pay submitted to the Prime Minister by the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers on July 26, the latter has warned of a one-day’s all India strike on December 12.
The Confederation’s affiliated federations/unions/associations are organizing a country wide campaign to make the agitation a success. In this context, it is quite relevant to discuss the justification of formation of 7th CPC .
