7th CPC Recommendations

7th CPC has recommended higher pay for IP, ASP and Group-B cadres.  A long pending demand is now seen accepted by the Pay commission.  Our Association had submitted a memorandum to the 7th CPC (available in the All India Blog).  We had requested to grant GP of Rs.5400 to Group-B, Rs.6600/- as Non-functional GP after 4 years in Group-B, Rs.6600/- as entry level GP for JTS and Rs.7600/- for STS.  Except GP of Rs.5400/- for Group-B, other demands are not seen considered.  We have to project our demand again.  Unfortunately, our All India Association has become non-existent.  Major Circles were requested to convene All India General Body but none has come forward.  Kerala Circle is ready to convene the All India General Body if it is agreeable to other Circles.  We should have an All India Association to present our demands.

The net increase is likely to be in the range of 22 per cent after subsuming the current 119 per cent dearness allowance in the new basic and grade pay scale.

The Seventh Pay Commission is likely to recommend a net increase of 22 per cent over the current pay package of Central government employees with a 15 per cent raise in basic pay and up to 25 per cent jump in allowances.

“The net increase is likely to be in the range of 22 per cent after subsuming the current 119 per cent dearness allowance in the new basic and grade pay scale,” sources said. They said the net figure would provide the government the leeway to add another 5-7 per cent increase — as was done on the last two Pay Commission recommendations — to take the eventual raise to nearly 30 per cent.

The final figure, however, could be a tad below the 35 per cent hike employees got on implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission in 2008. “That time the situation was different. There was buoyancy in revenue collections. Now revenue receipts have become stagnant,” an official said. 

The recommendation, which will become effective after a Cabinet nod, will impact 50 lakh Central government employees and 54 lakh pensioners. Sources said they expected the entire approval process to take another four months, at least, with the likelihood of its implementation by June next year.

However, since the hike in salaries is effective from January 2016, the arrears until June could be hived off as employees’ savings into the pension fund. “The Controller General of Accounts is already considering options for investment of Seventh Pay Commission arrears,” said an official
