With each passing day, the picture of higher monthly payout for central government employees, than what was recommended by the 7th Pay Commission, is emerging clear.
In a meeting with the BJP’s labour wing Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, Jitendra Prasad, Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, told the delegation that government would positively look into the demand of the central government employees. “The minister said we will consider the proposal of minimum pay of at 24,000”, Pawan Kumar, Regional Organizing Secretary told Zee Media Bureau.
The Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh is the largest central trade union organization in India, and claims to have more than 10 million members.
The trade union also sought increase in the Multiplication Factor and changes in the HRA.
The 7th CPC under AK Mathur had proposed Multiplication Factor of 2.57, according to which the fitment of each employee in the new pay matrix is proposed to be done by multiplying his or her basic pay on the date of implementation by a factor of 2.57.
“We are expecting the notification for implementation of the 7th Pay Commission in the last week of June, and payout to begin in July”, added Kumar.
He further assured that DoP&T is actively considering for grant of one time relaxation for compassionate appointment in Ministry of Defence. He added that Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh has ruled out possibilities of strike to get a better salary revision under 7th Pay Commission. “We are not part of those who say that we will strike”to get a better pay hike, added Kumar.
As per report, the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) has decided to serve indefinite strike notice to the Govt on 9th June 2016 and to commence indefinite strike from 11th July 2016, if the Govt fails to come to a negotiated settlement on 7th CPC related issues with the JCM National Council Staff Side.
