7 CPC NEWS-Minimum wage and Fitment formula

Comrades,

The Staff side had demand of minimum wage of Rs 26000/- & fitment formula of 3.71. Against this the 7th CPC had recommended minimum wage of Rs 18000/- & fitment formula of 2.57. The 7th CPC recommendations has provided only at 14% wage hike at Group “C” level it is only ranging from Rs 2240/- to  Rs 3500/- increase per month, and at Group “B” level ranging from Rs 4000/- to   Rs 6500/- increase per month. After deductions & income tax the net increase will be just from Rs 500/- to Rs 3000/- only .

This increase is lowest by any pay commission, hence vast changes are required as the prices of essential commodities have gone up and also the inflation rate has gone up.

There are various reports on 7th Central Pay commission on the media reports on minimum wage of Rs 21000/- & fitment formula of 3.00, (which is at 34% wage hike against the 14% wage hike recommended by the 7thCPC).

The Empowered committee of Secretaries have not finalised any such minimum wage and fitment formula, the meeting is scheduled on 11th June 2016.

Please go through minimum wage as on 1/1/2016 using the prices as on 1/7/2015 of the Director of Economic & statics , Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi.

We should add 10% for difference between retail price and Government rates.  It is clear that we should get minimum wage of Rs 24500 and fitment formula is 24500/ 7000 is 3.40 that is 50% wage hike .

The 7th CPC had provided wrong prices for example
Rice/Wheat Rs 25.93 per kg Dal (Toor/Urad/Moong) Rs 97.84 per kg.

If correct prices were adopted by the 7th CPC and correct methodology is adopted we would have got better minimum wage and fitment formula,

Comrades it is the time to struggle, we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we should get at least 50 % wage hike without allowances, as allowances are not taken into pension benefit.

Only struggle will get us benefit. Please don’t believe on rumours. Now it is now or never.  Serve strike notice on 9th June 2016.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

The 7 CPC has recommended rationalized parity between pensioners prior to 2015 and present pensioners. The Empowered Committee has rejected this recommendation simply because old records have to be verified. Except this no other valid argument was afforded in support of this cruel decision. None of the staff associations or organisations nor the Confederation of CG Employees have taken up this case with govt. Compared to the present pensions the old pensions, even after some periodical additions by V and VI pay commissions, are paltry and the old pensioners are finding it difficult to sustain. It is inhuman on the part of Service Organizations not to take up their case.
