Employees body demands re-look at 7th Pay Commission Report

Employees body demands re-look at 7th Pay Commission Report

New Delhi: A body of central government employees has demanded a re-look at the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) report and sought a rationalised pay structure.

In a memorandum submitted to Union Minister Jitendra Singh, the Government Employees’ National Federation said that while there are some positive recommendations in the 7th Pay Commission report, there are, at the same time, several instances which need a relook.

Thus, the memorandum said, the exercise to rationalise pay structure has led to several discrepancies. It further complained that the concept of grade pay and pay band has been done away with and all grades of pay at all levels have been subsumed within the pay matrix.

Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel, said that the report submitted last month is under the government’s consideration and the follow-up on it would be done after the inputs have been received from the Finance Ministry and other relevant quarters.

He said that even though opinion may vary, there is a large section of employees which has hailed the report, including its recommendation of 16 per cent hike in salary along with a 63 per cent increase in allowances and 24 per cent hike in pension, with minimum Basic Pay of Rs 18,000 and maximum pay of Rs 2.25 lakh for central government staff.

Singh recalled that, while accepting the report, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had disclosed that an implementation secretariat headed by the Expenditure Secretary had been created while a separate empowered committee under the Cabinet Secretary will take a view on suggestions received from various stakeholders.

“There is, therefore, enough reason to believe that all the concerns and apprehensions, if any, expressed by the employees will be taken care of by the government,” the minister said.
There are about 50 lakh central government employees.

Most Defence Associations Accepted OROP: Jaitley

Most Defence Associations Accepted OROP: Jaitley

New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said government’s OROP (One Rank One Pension) formula for retired defence personnel has been accepted by most associations and only a small section had some issues on it.

“The government has already announced its decision. Most personnel in their (defence) organisations have accepted that. If one faction or the other have reservations, I think it’s for all of you to sit together and decide …within the organisation itself. The mainstream organisations personally met me and thanked the government that their long-standing demand has been accepted,” he said.

The Minister was responding to a question on the implementation of OROP at ‘Aaj Tak Agenda’ programme.

As approved by the government in September, the OROP will be implemented from July 2014 and arrears alone would cost the exchequer about Rs 10,000-12,000 crore.

Grant of one time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointment in Ministry of Defence

Grant of one time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointment in Ministry of Defence

BPMS writes a letter to Defence Minister regarding compassionate appointment in the establishments of MoD.
BHARATIYA PRATIRAKSHA MAZDOOR SANGH
(AN ALL INDIA FEDERATION OF DEFENCE WORKERS)
Ref: GENC / MOS / Appointment / 01
Dated: 10.12.2015
To,
Dr. Jitendra Singh,
Minister of State,

Subject: Grant of one time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointment in Ministry of Defence.

Hon’ble Sir,

Through this letter, I would like to invite your attention to the following grievance of Civilian employees working in the Ministry of Defence:-

Govt. of India, DoP&T O.M. No. 14014 / 6 / 94- Estt (D) dated 09th Oct 1998 read with O.M. No. 14014/23/ 99- Estt (D) Dated 03rd Dec 1999 has a provision to give a compassionate appointment to one of the dependent for the survival of his family, if the employee unfortunately dies during his service period; leaving his family behind to survive, but it is limited to 5% of the vacancies. Due to this, a large number of wards are waiting for their appointment on compassionate grounds to look after the family.

Sir, there are 5.85 lakh sanctioned strength of defence civilians but the existing strength is only 3.98 lakh as on 01.01.2014 as mentioned in the report of 07 th CPC. It establishes that there is a deficiency of 1.87 lakh civilian manpower and there are Approx 20 thousands aspirants who are seeking appointment on compassionate grounds.

It is worth to mention here that DoP&T is the competent authority to grant one time relaxation from the limit of 5% vacancies falling under direct recruitment quota in Group ‘C’ post in a recruitment year.
Hence, you are requested to kindly intervene into the matter and issue necessary directives so that DoP&T may grant one time relaxation from the limit of 5% vacancies for compassionate ground appointments in the Defence Installations.

Thanking you.
Sincerely yours
SADHU SINGH
Organizing Secretary
