7TH CPC - Battle for recognition

The much-awaited Seventh Pay Commission report has left the paramilitary forces, whose concerns have remained largely unaddressed, high and dry.

In June 2013, Uttarakhand experienced the worst floods in its history. More than 5,000 people were killed. Bodies of thousands are yet to be recovered. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), the primary force deployed along the undefined and difficult China border, was the first to respond to the catastrophe.

Uniform Fitment Factor recommended by 7th Pay Commission

The existing PB-1, this index is 2.57, increasing to 2.62 for personnel in PB-2 and further to 2.67 from PB-3. The rationalised entry pay so arrived has been used in devising the new pay matrix.

The 7th Pay Commission recommended uniform fitment factor for all group of Central Government employees. The commission says that the fitment recommended by the VI CPC was in the form of grade pay. Any inconsistency in the computation of grade pay or in the spacing between pay bands has a direct bearing on the quantum of fitment benefit. Therefore, these issues have also been raised by numerous stakeholders. It has been demanded by a majority of the stakeholders that there should be a single fitment factor which should be uniformly applied for all employees.

Street Food: Why govt employees hate the NPS



NPS still has critics despte being in biz for a decade and mopping Rs 24,000 cr as of 2013-14

N Sundaresha Subramanian | New Delhi November 23, 2015 Last Updated at 22:42 IST

The 7th central pay commission (CPC) was not supposed to look into the National Pension System (NPS). The terms of reference of the body headed by ex-judge Ashok Mathur limited the mandate in this regard to only the Old Pension System (OPS). Yet, the number of grievances and complaints were so many that the commission decided to deal with it in detail. The grievances ranged from lack of basic elements such as a grievance redressal mechanism to disadvantages in the tax regime and structural issues.

LDC-UDC ISSUE-GOVERNMENT STAND REITERATED

On the issue of LDC/UDC 7th Pay Commission reiterated the deceiving stand of the Government. Despite of realizing the issue as genuine, Government had not taken a positive decision at their level. The tens of thousands of LDC & UDC, solely responsible for the smooth running of many of the subordinate offices, were hoping that 7th Pay Commission will study the problem faced by them and take a positive decision. Staff Side JCM having convinced the importance of the issue, had also recommended merger & upgradation of the Grade Pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2800. But here we see that 7th Pay Commission has not taken any decision on the issue except giving some confusing and misleading statements to vindicate the stand taken by the Government as true. Extracts of some of their views on LDC UDC issue spread over various chapters of the reports is given below:

Higher GP 2400 to LDC and consequent upgradation of pay for other civilian posts in the Ministerial hierarchy.

11.22.100 The Academy has urged that LDC should be placed in higher GP 2400 as against the existing GP 1900 at par with grade pay of Data Entry Operator (DEO), on the grounds that both LDC and DEO enter service on the basis of same educational qualification i.e.,

Child Care Leave (CCL) for single male parent recommended by 7th Pay Commission report

New Delhi: The Seventh Pay Commission report has recommended Child Care Leave (CCL) for single male parent, which is currently given to only women employees.

CCL is granted to women employees for a maximum period of two years (730 days) during their entire service for taking care of their minor children (up to eighteen years of age).

The Pay Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, submitted its recommendations to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley yesterday.

“The Commission notes that in the event a male employee is single, the onus of rearing and nurturing the children falls squarely on his shoulders.

“Hence extension of CCL to single male parents is recommended,” the report said.

It also recommended CCL at 100 per cent of the salary for the first 365 days, and 80 per cent of the salary for the next 365 days.

CCL was first introduced by 6th Central Pay Commission.

The report also said there is a “palpable need” to bring in some inhibiting feature so as to ensure that only genuinely affected employees avail of this scheme.

“Towards this end, the Commission recommends that CCL should be granted at 100 per cent of the salary for the first 365 days, but at 80 per cent of the salary for the next 365 days,” the report said.

The report further said that the Commission recognises the additional responsibility on the shoulders of employees who are single mothers.

“Accordingly, it is recommended that for such employees, the conditionality of three spells in a calendar year should be relaxed to six spells in a calendar year,” the 900-page report said.

In making the recommendation, the Commission said it has also kept in mind the fact the concept of a paid (whether 100 per cent or 80 per cent) leave solely for child care for a period of two years, “is a liberal measure unmatched anywhere else”.
