7th CPC Questionnaire - Draft Reply published by Confederation

7th CPC Questionnaire :-

1. Salaries
1.1 The considerations on which the minimum salary in case of the lowest Group ‘C’ functionary and the maximum salary in case of a Secretary level officer may be determined and what should be the reasonable ratio between the two.
Any Commission which considers the question of emoluments for employees/workers should first be inspired by the implication flowing from the amendment to the preamble of our Constitution where-by the words “socialist & secular” were prefixed to the word “Republic”, as also the Directive Principles of State Policy enshrined in Article 43 i.e. the state should endeavour to secure living wage for its employees/workers.

Group C is a skilled worker. MTS is the lowest category of Group C. The 6Ib CPC evolved the MTS by amalgamating some of the unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled functions without any scientific basis or logic. From the standpoint of the stipulation in the recruitment rules, eligibility criteria etc, MTS deserves to be categorized as a skilled worker. In practice, most of the departments have outsourced or contractorised the
unskilled or semi skilled jobs leaving the MTS to cater to the requirements of the skilled functions.

DA CALCULATION SHEET

DA CALCULATION SHEET 

DA CALCULATION SHEET WITH INPUTS OF CPI(I-W) BASE YEAR 2001=100

We are proud to be the first to formulate the DA Table. 

We are aware of the fact that a number of you are very keen on learning how to calculate the Dearness Allowance. Hence, we created this table. At a stage, we ourselves were surprised by the response that it had received. Let us see, in detail, how DA is calculated. The calculations are very easy.  First is the month. Then comes the CPI (IW) Base Year 2001=100 and the relevant data. In the next column, you have the sum total of all the 12 months, i.e., the total of the declared AIPCIN numbers for the past 12 months. Next comes the division of the sum total by 12. 

The next step is the most crucial one. You will have to find out by how much it exceeds 115.76. You will have to calculate the excess as percentage of 115.76. 

(12 Monthly Average) – 115.76 
-----------------------------------    X 100  =  Percentage increase in prices (ignore decimals)
                     115.76

The table has been created to easily understand the formula...
