7th CPC


                               It is so sad that the 7th  CPC cheated the stenographers community.  Though they assured during the discussions no benefts extended to us?  the parity suggestion is also felt to be an eye wash as such we have to chalk out an agitation plan even meeting the finance minister and all    i request all members to suggest the ways and means of our future course of actions

delay in updating

 I regret the delay in posting the parity case details and  7th CPC details.  Unfortunately from 10th November I am in a hospital due to a major accident.  My wife is critically injured and still in hospital.  By the almightys grace and the prayers of my friends and relatives she is now almost recovered


It is sad that our cat case No.709/2013 is again posted to 27th November 2015

Removal of Grade Pay System in 7th Pay Commission – A detailed report

 Will the removal of Grade Pay System by the 7th Pay Commission help Central Government employees? – This is the topic of this article.

“Unconfirmed reports say that the 7th Pay Commission is very likely to recommend the abolishing of the Grade Pay System introduced by the 6th Pay Commission.”

Not only the Government, but the Central Government employees too are hoping and wishing that the 7th Pay Commission functions independently, free from interventions. The report of the previous Pay Commissions will guide for determining the revision of pay scale and pay bands, allowances, retirement benefits and other facilities/benefits of more than 50 lakh employees. The Pay Commission also considers the recommendations, suggestions and inputs gathered from employees all over the country and presented as memorandums by federations like the NC JCM and the Confederation.

There is no rule that the new Pay Commission has to follow the same methodology and determination followed by the previous Pay Commissions. Therefore, one cannot state for sure that the 7th Pay Commission will tow the guidelines issued by the 6th or the 5th Pay Commission while deciding the new pay scale and pay bands.

One has to keep in mind the fact that the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the recommendations and guidelines issued by the 5th Pay Commission. One has to also remember that a number of industry experts, who predicted the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission based on the trends of the previous Pay Commission, were proved completely wrong.

If one Pay Commission has the right to recommend the splitting of the Pay Scale into two, the next Pay Commission has all the powers to completely abolish the system. But, this is not the issue!

Will the Central Government employees benefit by the removal of the Grade Pay system? This is the question now.

It will definitely be beneficial. Here are the reasons why.

It is unacceptable that a promotion, which comes after waiting for many years, brings with it an increment of just Rs.100.

None has until now accepted the splitting of the promotional hierarchy, which had been followed for years, into two.

The anomalies that prevailed due to the ‘Grade Pay Hierarchy’ which was introduced under the MACP promotional system, still remain unresolved.

When the discussions and debates on MACP system continued to grow unabated during the NC JCM Anomaly Committee meeting, it was decided that a separate meeting ought to be held to analyze this issue.

Most of the individual requests from the Central Government employees this time are about the MACP promotional system. The reason is the Grade Pay structure introduced by the 6th Pay Commission.
And also can list out many reasons to abolish the Grade Pay System.

History Speaks- Every successive Pay Commission has roughly tripled pay

7th Pay Commission – Highest pay hike since 1947 is on the cards

New Delhi: The Seventh Pay Commission is likely to propose pay hike for central government employees, which will be highest since first pay commission’s proposal in 1947.
‘Now is Seventh Pay Commission time’, which is also to take in to account living cost of central government employees cost of their appraisal.The first pay commission was constituted in 1946, while its submitted its report on May, 1947 to the interim government of India. ‘Living wage’ — the guiding principle for the first Pay Commission — is long past.
The cost of living measures the annual cost of necessities for one adult to live a secure, yet modest, lifestyle by estimating the costs of housing, food, transportation, health care, other necessities, and taxes.
Every government employee likely has a six-member family including his parents. So, Seventh Pay Commission is likely to increase salaries and allowances to minimise the impact on the cost of living for 50 lakh central government employees and 56 lakh pensioners including dependents.
Inflation pushes living cost, inflation, is an economic concept. The effect of inflation is the prices of everything going up year by year. A central government employee got salary Rs 3000 in 1987 under Sixth pay commission, now he gets Rs 80,000 with two promotion, this is called inflation, the price of everything goes up. When the price goes up, the salaries go up.
Every successive Pay Commission has roughly tripled pay. This means that simply by hiking up living cost for 10 years, a government employee would have tripled his pay.
The first pay commission was recommended Rs 55 salary to the lowest earning employee, second Rs 80, third Rs 185, fourth Rs 750, fifth Rs 2550 and sixth Rs 6660.
Accordingly, the Seventh Pay Commission is likely to propose minimum basic salary Rs 20,000 of central government employees, sources in the pay panel said.
The main reason behind the proposal of Seventh Pay Commission is to hike highest pay since 1947 on the account of Dearness Allowance (DA). The central government employees will get Dearness Allowance likely 125 percent at the time implementation of Seventh pay Commission. They never got such type of Dearness Allowance hike before implementation of any Pay Commission.
Dearness Allowance always merges with salaries and allowances under every pay commission’s proposal.
“The Seventh Pay Commission is ready with recommendations and the report will be submitted soon,” according to sources.
Headed by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, the Seventh Pay Commission was appointed in February 2014 and its recommendations are scheduled to take effect from January 1, 2016.
The government constitutes the Pay Commission almost every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often states also implement the panel’s recommendations after some modifications. The first pay commission was constituted in 1946, second in 1957, third in 1970, fourth in 1983, fifth in 1994, sixth in 2006 and seventh in 2014.
As part of the exercise, the Seventh Pay Commission holds discussions with various stakeholders, including organisations, federations, groups representing civil employees as well as defence services.
Meena Agarwal is the secretary of the Commission. Other members are Vivek Rae, a retired IAS officer of 1978 batch and Rathin Roy, an economist.
The Sixth Pay Commission was implemented with effect from January 1, 2006, the fifth from January 1, 1996 and the fourth from January 1, 1986.
