What are the expectations of the Central Government employees from the 7th Pay Commission?

“It is impossible for the 7th Pay Commission to fulfill all the demands of the Central Government employees. The question is – will it at least address the concerns of majority of them?”

The media is full of unconfirmed reports on the submission of 7th Pay Commission report to Central Government. Recently in an interview with a leading English newspaper, Neelakanth Mishra, India equity strategist of Credit Suisse expressed his strong opinions about the 7th Pay Commission and the implementation of its recommendations.

Is there any connection between the report of 7th CPC and OROP announcement?

with 1 comment
Is there any connection between the report of 7th CPC and OROP announcement?

“Is there any connection between the submission of report of 7th CPC to Central and the announcement of OROP to Defence Personnel?”

The 7th Pay Commission has announced through on its portal last month that the task was given by the Government to the commission will be completed within the time frame and the commission will submit its recommendations before September this year to Central Government.

Some believe that the two reports could be linked.

“The 7th Pay Commission is all set to submit its report to the Government before August 15.”

“The Prime Minister is expected to announce the implementation of OROP in his Independence Day address to the nation.”

According to unofficial sources, the 7th Pay Commission is going to submit its report to the Government before August 15. The fact that the commission has completed its work much ahead of its deadline is indeed commendable. This is the first time in the history of Pay Commissions that a Commission has completed its report ahead of its deadline. Pay Commissions are synonymous with arrears. Last time, 20-month arrears were paid in two installments. If the new Pay Commission’s recommendations are implemented on time, it would be another first – the first to not have any pending arrears.

What will the additional Dearness Allowance increase be from the month of July to Dec 2015? One has to wait for the AICPIN data for the month of June 2015 that will be released on July 31 to find out.

Central Government employees are not the only ones who are eagerly waiting to find out what the DA percentage hike will be from July to December 2015. Central Pensioners and employees of the banking sectors too are curious to know. Additionally, the employees are working under state governments are also covered in this circle.

Grant of increment for those who have completed one year on the day of superannuation - NC JCM Staff Side writes to the Secretary of Dopt

 "The issue was discussed several occasions, but was not agreed upon by the Official Side. The Official Side took the stand that the completion of the stipulated one year being the day on which the official retires, he cannot be granted one increment for having completed one year only the next day and for doing so, one has to be on duty. The fact that the official has completed the requisite one year for earning an increment was unfortunately glossed over. "

Justification of One Rank One Pension – What is the real status of OROP?

with 6 comments
Justification of One Rank One Pension – What is the real status of OROP?

Why is the Government hesitant to implement OROP? – Is economical burden on the exchequer the only reason?

“When the body and spirit are hale and healthy, our soldiers dedicate their life for the safety of the country. Once the body has worn out and the soldiers retire, they want a secure life. What’s unreasonable about this?

“The 35-year-long demand might look unreasonable at the first glance. But, if the request is studied in depth, the urgency and necessity to implement it can be understood.”

IESM claims that civilians and CRPF cannot demand to be included in this scheme.
The moment a young man or woman enters a government service, his/her future is secure until the age of 57-60. The government pays them salaries, promotions and regular incentives and increments. Post-retirement, there is always the pension. But, the soldiers who join the Army, Navy, and the Air Force, opt for retirement at the age of 37. At the time of retirement, they are offered meager pensions. Is it right to use the same yardsticks to compare the two?
