Impact of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission – NFIR

National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC/CORRES(R.B)
Dated : 4.1.2016
The Addl: Member (Budget),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Impact of the recommendations of 7th CPC- reg.

Ref: AM(B) note No. 2015-B-265 dated 23/12/2015 addressed to GS/NFIR.

With reference to the note received from AM(B) dated 23/12/2015 on the subject relating to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Railways, the Federation at the outset conveys as follows:-

During discussions with the Hon’ble MR and the Board (CRB, FC, MS) on 23rd December 2015, the NFIR General Secretary has expressed that there is all-round unhappiness on 7th CPC recommendations as in many cases the ‘Take Home Pay’ is either very marginal or less than what is received by the employee now. The Federation also disputed the estimated financial implications (Rs.28,500 crores) and said that the estimated expenditure has been exaggerated. It was also brought to the notice of the MR the retrograde recommendations of 7th CPC, while the case of Railway employees of various categories was not dealt adequately and the Railway Ministry has unfortunately not apprised the inadequacies of Grades Pay and Pay Band of 6th CPC to the Chairman, 7th CPC.

2. As desired vide note dated 23/12/2015, the Federation furnishes the followins details as Annexures to this letter.

(a) Table -I gives the position of 6th CPC minimum pay in Pay Band & Grade pay (PB-1 to PB-3) as on 01/01/2016.

(b) Table -I (a) explains the 7th CPC minimum pay from Level-l to Level-12 of the Pay Matrix.

[A comparison of Table-I with Table-I(a) reveals that the net benefit is marginal at Level-1, minus at Level-2. However, there may be substantial increase from Level-7 and above. If Income Tax deduction takes place, the increase will fall.]

(c) Table-II indicates 6th CPC minimum pay in GP + Pay Band without HRA.

Table-II (a) gives 7th CPC minimum pay without HRA (staff in occupation of Railway quarters are not entitled for HRA).

[A comparison of Table-II with Table-II (a) shows minus ‘Take Home Pay’ for employees of Level-I to Level-6 of Pay Matrix and equally marginal increase to those in Level-7, 8 & 9 of pay Matrix. Again in Level-10 the ‘Take Home Pay’ will be less than the present amount’. Overall position will be either “minus” or “marginal increase”. The Income Tax deduction would further worsen.]

(d) Table-III shows the approximate 6th CPC pay of employees after drawal of 10 annual increments.

Table III(a) provides information pertainingtoTth CPC Pay (approx) for staff in Level-1 to Level-12 (Pay Matrix).

[A comparison between Table-III and Table-III(a) reveals that there will be marginal increase to those in Level-1 to Level-6. Although there will be an increase of more than 2400 to those in Level-7 to Level-12, the Income Tax deduction would reduce their ‘Net Take Home Pay.’

(e) Table-IV gives position of 6th CPC Pay of staff (without HRA + 10 annual increments – approx) as on 01/0112016

Table-IV(a) explains 7th CPC Pay without HRA as on 01/01/2016.

[A comparison of Table-IV with Table-IV (a) reveals that those in 7th CPC Pay Matrix Level-1 to Level-12 will draw minus salary. With Income Tax deduction, the position may be more worse.]

Note: (i) In the case of employees living in Railway Quarters (nearly 40%) the financial (ii) The unfilled vacancies are approximately over two lakhs since the last two years. The implications of HRA will be Zero. The costs of these posts have already been saved by the Indian Railways.

Encls: Annexure I to Annexure IV

Decrease in Take Home Salary from 6th to 7th Pay Commission – IRTSA

Decrease in Take Home Salary from 6th to 7th Pay Commission – IRTSA

7th CPC PAY HIKE – IS IT A HIKE OR A FARCE ?
THE CAUSE IS HIDDEN
THE EFFECT IS VISIBLE TO ALL

7th CPC has submitted its report to the Government and the additional expenditure projected by the PAY Commission is of 1.02 lakh rupees. As outsiders many of the country men started crying hoarse that the Govt. employees are taking away lions’ share of its income.

Out of the projected 1.02 lakh hike, just above 1/4th is going to be borne by Indian Railways within its own budget; centre has to bear 1/4th towards pension, 1/4th towards allowances and only 1/4th towards Pay. Govt. need to borne only Rs.27,750 crores towards increase in pay. Allowances need not be taken as higher expenditure since they are part of compensation towards inflation and expenditure incurred in discharge of official duties.

7th CPC itself observed that financial impact on account of increase in pay, allowances & pension will be 23.55%. Increase on account of Pay & DA (excluding other allowances) will be to the tune of 16%. At present, without implementing 7th CPC Report, Year on year increase in the expenditure in both pay and pension has averaged about 11% of the Central Expenditure. Thus real increase on account of increase in pay, all allowances & pension will be only 12.55% (23.55% – 11% = 12.55%). Real increase on account of Pay & DA will be only 5% (16% – 11% = 5%).

IS THERE A REAL INCREASE IN TAKE HOME PAY? 
Real increase in minimum wage between 6th CPC & recommended 7th CPC scales will be Rs.2250. Employees’ contribution to National Pension scheme will increase from Rs.700 to Rs.1800 and for CGEGIS it will increase from present Rs.30 to Rs.1500. Therefore increase in real wage (take home pay) of Rs.2250 will be eaten away by Rs.900 increased contribution for NPS plus Rs.1500 for CGEGIS. Net take home pay will have a negative growth of Rs.320 (Rs.1100 + Rs.1470 – Rs.2250 = Rs. – 320) as illustrated in the table below:
WILL THERE BE ANY ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURE DUE TO PAY HIKE RECOMMENDED BY 7TH CPC?
Government will take back into its treasury Rs. 6500 crores from increased monthly contribution towards CGEGIS and another Rs.2500 crores towards employees’ contribution for NPS from 11 lakh employees appointed after 1.1.2004. After reducing Rs.9000 crore from Rs.27,750 crore (projected increase in pay), net additional expense towards Pay will be around Rs.18,750 crores only. Even this additional expenditure is not true.

Total Expenditure on Pay & Allowance in FY 2012- 13 was Rs.1,29,599 crore. If it is indexed by 11% increase year on year, in the FY 2015-16 even without implementing 7th CPC recommendations increase on account of Pay & Allowances will be around Rs.19,500 crore. Therefore Government is not going to have any additional expenditure on account of Pay increase after the implementation of 7th CPC Report as per its recommendations.

For 2012-13, revenues foregone through various concessions to various sections are estimated at a total of Rs.5,73,627 crore which was 10 per cent higher than the total fiscal deficit of the Central Government, financial experts say, concessions must be given to have accelerated economic growth. Government employees are exposed to negative growth in their real wage – but who cares?
