According to a press release issued by the Labour Bureau, Ministry of Labour & Employment the All-India CPI-IW for October, 2013 rose by 3 points and pegged at 241 (two hundred and forty one). On 1-month percentage change, it increased by 1.26 per cent between September and October compared with 0.93 per cent between the same two months a year ago.

At item level, Rice, Wheat Atta, Fish Fresh, Goat Meat, Milk (Cow & Buffalo), Pure Ghee, Onion, Vegetable items, Tea Readymade, Electricity Charges, etc.. are responsible for the rise in index. However, this was compensated to some extent by Groundnut Oil, Ginger, Petrol, putting downward pressure on the index.

The year-on-year inflation measured by monthly CPI-IW stood at 11.06 per cent for October, 2013 as compared to 10.70 per cent for the previous month and 9.60 per cent during the corresponding month of the previous year.

Composition of 7th Pay Commission

Composition of 7th Pay Commission

Some Blogs have said that Shri. Raminder Singh Gujral ,IAS, the Finance Secretary , might be appointed as Member secretary of 7th Pay Commission. But the fact is he is retiring from the service on 30th November 2013. New Finance Secretary will be appointed after the approval of the Appointment Committee of the Cabinet. But the issue here is not regarding who will be the next Finance secretary. The issue is ‘can the retiring official be appointed as Member secretary to the 7th Pay Commission? . It is needed to mention that the previous pay commissions did not have retired bureaucrats as its Member secretary. The serving bureaucrats only appointed as Member Sectary of all the Pay commissions except the First Pay Commission.

The first pay Commission did not have a Member secretary. Its secretary was Shri. K.R.P.Aiyangar

The Member Secretaries of later Pay commissions were…
The Second Pay Commission- Shri. L.P. Singh, ICS.
The Third Pay Commission – Shri . Shri H.N. Ray, ICS.
The Fourth Pay Commission – Shri .A.K. Majumdar, IAS.
The Fifth Pay Commission – Shri M.K Kaw,IAS.
The Sixth Pay Commission- Smt.Sushma Nath,IAS.

So the Seventh Pay Commission also will have a serving bureaucrats as its Member secretary

    Message of TKR Pillai, General Secretary, All India Association of Ministerial Staff (NG):-

Dear friends,

While going through the letter of the Ministry of Finance, as given below, it has become more clear that the Ministry of Finance is not willing to consider the genuine case of  Lakhs of LDC & UDC of the Government of India Offices. It appears, the Ministry of Finance proposes Ministry/Department wise restructuring(with the provision of reduction of number of posts while applying matching/saving) of the posts. the proposal is not practical since the LDC & UDC are common cadres and spread over the entire Government of India Offices of various Ministries unless the MoF/DoPT clarifies the position further. In this context, the matter was discussed  in the National Executive Meeting of the Confederation and the decision taken in it is given below. Thus all of us should prepare for the action as proposed by the Confederation. I feel it would be better if we exibit our unity/strength in the proposed Nation wide Mass Dharna called by the Confederation  on 9th January 2014 at Delhi. I have discussed the matter with some like minded Associations who will also attending the Dharna Programme. All our friends are requested to give their valuable comments/opinion so that we may take the appropriate action on the matter.

Copy of the letter received from Ministry of Finance is exhibited below. Com. T. K. R. Pillai, General Secretary, All India Association of Ministerial Staff (NG)  has raised this issue in the National Secretariat meeting of the Confederation held at New Delhi on 28.11.2013. After detailed deliberations Com. S. K. Vyasji, Advisor, Confederation & JCM National Council, Standing Committee member has opined that eventhough this issue is a part of Anomaly Committee, due to non-holding of the Committee no finality has been reached till now. As Government has announced 7th CPC there is every possibility of Government referring the anomalies to 7th CPC. Hence he advised Com. T. K. R. Pillai to seek legal remedy also while continuing our efforts to settle the issue in the Anomaly Committee.
