7th Pay Commission Recommendations has begun to emerge!

7th Pay Commission Recommendations has begun to emerge!

“It doesn’t come as a surprise that even bits and morsels of information about the recommendations, which is being eagerly expected by nearly 50 lakh employees and pensioners, make headlines.”

The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission have slowly started to make their way to the media in the form of unconfirmed news. The information that was being extensively discussed by all for more than a week now has finally made it to the websites yesterday.

It has now been confirmed that the 7th Pay Commission will submit is report to the Government next month. With the report being given a final shape, certain pieces of information have already started to hit the media. Some of the workable recommendations of the commission are out.

In 2006, a number of such unconfirmed reports surfaced, when the 6th Pay Commission report was being prepared, because the report was not submitted to the government on time. Due to the delay, there was tremendous curiosity to find out what the report contained. This led to a lot of rumors. Since the internet didn’t become that popular in those days, those rumors were hard to believe. Most of them were circulated by word of mouth.

Now, despite the fact that there are plenty of news sources, since it has become possible to trace the point of origin of the information, such rumors have reduced. This time around, the information was given by the leaders of Federations. Yet, one can neither completely accept them as true, nor dismiss them as entirely false.

Since the government and the major employees federations have their own websites, it has become possible for the information to spread to the corners of the world within minutes. Also, retracts and denials too have become equally fast, thus killing the rumours immediately. With a number of other individual websites and blogs too covering the news about Central Government employees, the readers are now able to differentiate between news and rumours.

There is nothing surprising or shocking in the news reports that have now surfaced. A minimum basic pay of Rs.21,000 is an expected one. The recently released Kerala Pay Commission too has recommended the minimum wage at Rs.17,000 (from 01.01.2014 onwards). The National Council has demanded that it be Rs.26,000 per month.

It is a well known fact that the Grade Pay System had been a source of constant irritation. The dual Hierarchy System (Promotional hierarchy and Grade Pay hierarchy) will come to an end. There will not be any more confusion about the promotions that come through MACP.

The Multiplication Factor of 2.86 does sound very low. NC JCM had pressurized the Pay Commission to fix it at 3.7. The 6th Pay Commission had fixed it at 1.86, and also given Grade Pay. Since the DA now stands at 125% (including July 2015 and January 2016), this could end up being substantial.

Goods news. But the criteria for retirement 33 or 60 years which ever earlier will have effect to large section of government employee. Most of the employee must taken Housing Loan, Society Loan etc. Government should come out total guidelines on this and the effect should be made after 4 to 5 years wherein every government employees will have sufficient time and will plan his or her retirement. This may please be taken into consideration

The criteria for retirement age will be either completion of 33 years of service or at the age of 60 years whichever is earlier. If it is implemented
young people will get jobs in Govt. sectors. More than that young people will work hard than the old aged persons, Due to old age and health problems it is very difficult for the Govt. employees who have served more than 33 years of service.
In view of the above, Govt. should implement pay commissions recommendations i.e., 33/60 years at the earliest.

The criteria for retirement 33 or 60 years which ever earlier will have effect to large section of government employee. Most of the employee must taken Housing Loan, Society Loan etc, Education loan, personnel loans for housing, higher education of children, marriage of their children and so on, with the impression that they will pay the loan till retirement. All of a sudden if govt says bye-bye to the employees it may be a great loss for them. Further, if a graduate even B.Tech who may join job in the age of 20-22 years may retire between 53-55 years. Government should come out total guidelines on this and the effect should be made after 4 to 5 years wherein every government employees will have sufficient time and will plan his or her retirement. Further on the one hand Govt is giving statement in the parliament that there is no plan to reduce the age even from 60 to 58 and on the other hand one may retire on 53-55 years. It is fully injustice. Hence all the things may be taken up into consideration. In some departments where pension has not been available, this type of decision will took the employee on road. Hence the matter is required to consider accordingly..

If the recommendation regarding criteria for retirement is true, it is nothing but shocking!! It will play havoc with the lives of not only of employees but also their dependent family members.
All the govt. employees begin plans for their post-retirement life around 50 years of age. Around the age when this recommendation will force majority of employees to retire, the Govt. employees may have liabilities like children aspiring for higher education, daughters to be married, EMIs to be paid for home loan, etc. With this recommendation all such plans of an employees will go for a six and bring the employees on the road.
Employees who joined the service at a young age, say 20-25 years will be forced to retire between 53-58 years of age. Majority of employees join service by 25 years of age. This recommendation will effectively fix the retirement age at a maximum of 58 years for a majority and 53, 54……57 for those who joined the service at younger age than 25 years.
As this recommendation is surely going to bring majority of Govt. employees to a desperate and helpless situation adversely affecting their dependent family members and their own post-retirement lives, the 7th Pay Commission should not make this recommendation. If at all this recommendation is made, the Govt. should reject it outrightly, considering the hardships it will force on majority of its employees

According to the likely recommendation of 7th CPC, if a person joined the service at the age between 20-25 years, he will retire at the age between 53-58 years. Is it the age for retirement? Definitely not!! Many young people here are commenting that early retirement at 53-59 years of age will create jobs for them. It is not a creation of jobs, but it is like robbing Peter to pay Paul. With the increase in life expectancy, the retirement age all over the world is increasing, including India where the retirement age of Govt. employees has been increased twice – from 55 to 58 years and from 58 to 60 years.
India aspires to be a developed country but no developed country in the world has the retirement below 60 years for its Govt. employees. On the contrary, the tendency all over the world is to increase the retirement age with increase in life expectancy and between 2004-14, the life expectancy in India has increased by 5 years. Therefore, reducing the retirement age is not justified if we go by the trend around the world.
It is interesting to note that only three countries in the world – Turkey, Indonesia and Nepal - have retirement age at 58 years and below, while most of other countries have retirement for their Govt. employees at 60 years or more. Don't young people in these countries need employment? Does their Govt. reduce the retirement age of present Govt. employees to eliminate the problem of unemployment? The answer is, no.
Take the example of Spain where one out of 4 youth is unemployed i.e. 25% unemployment, but Spain has not reduced retirement age of its Govt. employees to give the impression of creating jobs and their retirement age remains at 65 years. India definitely does not face such a bad situation like Spain where unemployment is 25%. Then why such a drastic step to give the impression of creating jobs by rendering its already employed employees unemployed?
If retirement age is indeed reduced by the govt. to 53-59 years, India will have the distinction of being the only country in the world to retire its Govt. employees even at 53 years of age surpassing Nepal and Indonesia and behind only Turkey.
Our Prime Minister has been working very hard and has been successful in projecting the image of India in the world as the soon-to-be-a-developed country , but this image will suffer a setback if, by reducing the retirement age to as low as 53 years , India is made to be next only to Turkey where the retirement age is 45 years, the lowest in the world. Even in Pakistan the retirement age of Govt. servants was increased from 60 to 62 years, while life expectancy there is lower (67.39 years) than in India (68.13 years). Pakistan increased the retirement age despite having a higher unemployment rate (5.37) than India (3.72).
It is hoped that it is only a rumour, but if 7th CPC indeed recommends the criteria for retirement as 33/60, it is expected it will back such a recommendation with a rationale behind it. Merely the reason for creation of jobs behind this recommendation will not be fair as no other country does so – not even Pakistan! Govt. should not accept this recommendation.

33 वर्ष की सेवा अथवा 60 वर्ष की आयु(जो भी पहले हो) पर सरकारी कर्मचारी को रिटायर करने का सुझाव स्वागत योग्य है। कार्य करने की जो क्षमता शुरु में होती है वह इस आयु में आते-आते लगभग खत्म हो जाती है।इस संबंध में सरन जी का सुझाव उचित है।

If a person joins Govt service at an early stage it will be because of the fact that he could clear the competative examination in the first chance owing to his better IQ and abilities. he will in any case will be a better choice than a person clearing the selection on repeated attempts at a later age.Hence super annuating a person at an early age for the reason that he entered service at an early age will result in shedding better talents in preference to 2nd grade.

Regarding the criteria that the government going to take step on retirement on service period of 33yrs or 60yrs of age which ever is earlier.........
There was a demand to rise the upper age limit for retirement, many are there those cannot complete even 33 years of their service. I just want to say as well as to draw the attention of government that the upper age limit may please be rise by 5 years who cannot complete at least the service for the period of 33 years.
Hope the government will take a positive and sympathetic view on the matter.

Sir, the 33/60 criteria for retirement is to be implemented. Yes,the decision is absolutely appreciable in the view of future generation. The govt. can create large employment. But just think about the seniors who will retire in coming 3 or 4 years. This may be implemented to the employees who joined on or after 01.01.2004.
thank you..

Govt has to take services of youth as well as Senior employees .In the performance of work both are different .Leaving Sr and taking work from youth is not that much easy. Govt has to train them to reach the standards of a Sr employee.The way side thinking that sr persons are not working in offices and youth will work more all this is a thrash. Is there any guaranty that the youth will do miracles. By seeing the atmosphere he will run away to seek other job.Now a days you have to provide so much to youth for performing work.ie without AC he will not work In govt offices only head office may have AC Others have to work in the available atmosphear. Do the youth accept? So social media has to guide properly for takin proper decisions The Senior employees at their age of 50 to age of 60 doing marvellous work in govt offices by attending minimum 4 persons work for the last 10 years.No 50 percent merger of DA ,No increase in HRA ,Megre rate of Increments, and Now Retirement age New problem.Is it Justified.Previously Govt used to get Income Tax and Central Exise and other only .Now SERVICE TAX on every service providing by other person HUGE AMOUNT is collecting where it is going? If love and effect ion on Youth is there Govt can create a NEW SCALE and place them and promot them.All will be happy. Why suffering the seniors and CHANGING policies .

33 years of service descision is totally wrong.India is a developing country where life expectancy is increasing so it is wrong to decrease the service period or retirement age.Lakhs of employees will loose their jobs who are having burden of loans of daughters marriage housing loans.So the secretaries should not approve this decision.No developed country in the world has retirement age less than 60 years.So it will be a wrong decision.This is not an option for job creation.Lakhs of posts are lying vacant from years and there is no advertisement for recruitment.How the office will run after this decision.So 33 years of service decision should be rejected.

If these recommendations of retirement age of Max 33years of service are true it is just shocking.It is totally injustice and against fundamental rights.If a person is able to get his job at early age of 20 because of his or her fficiency , is this his reward to retire him at 53.This must never be even thought.
