sixth pay commission report is going to approve on 14th August by Cabinet

Today on 13th august, 2008 In PM office, at discussions, it is decided that sixth pay commission report is going to be approved by cabinet on 14th august, 2008. PM is going to give more information about 6th pay commission on 15th august.

It is expected that all the doubt about revised sixth pay commission report by COS will be cleared tomorrow.

Thursday, August 7, 2008

On 15th August PM will announce about 6th PC implementation

Some website says that 6th pay commission will be effective from 01.01.2008. It will be ridicules to cut the arrears of two year in the fear of extra burden on Indian economy in the name of high inflation rate. This is not confirmed yet.

There is high possibility that PM will announce about the time line of implementation of 6th pay commission report. It is more likely that the modified 6th pay commission report will go to 13th finance commission and government will ask them to finish the analysis before 31 October 2008.

Now government's aim is to bring the date of implementation as near as general election date or delay it till inflation rate will be down.

So now, you can expect some new latest news of sixth pay commission on 15th august. Amidst all uncertainty, it is sure that Central government employee will get revised pay before the voting date of general election !!

SPC recommendations is ready for approval after GOVT is safe

The UPA Government today scored an emphatic victory in the confidence vote in the Lok Sabha with a comfortable margin.

Now for government, it will be easy to implement the modified sixth pay commission as soon as possible.

It is expected that before 30 august 6th pay commission will be approved by the cabinet of government. There is no reason for delaying it further now.

It is sure that the proposal of 1% more annual increments to 20% higher performers among group A officers will not be accepted, as it will be very difficult to differentiate performing officers from non-performer.

It is unlikely to increase the retirement age to 62 year.

cabinet meeting for SPC after 22 july

6th pay commission report was not in the agenda of the Cabinet Committee meeting on 11th July 2008. Government's only concern now is about saving the government from the motion of confidence at parliament on 22th July. If UPA fails in parliament, SPC report will be discussed only after the formation of new government.

You can expect any new news about 6th pay commission and new pay information only after 22nd July.

Not a single political party is opposing the worst recommendation by Committee of Secretaries (CoS) or original 6th pay commission report.

Govt to discuss pay report at next Cabinet meeting

July 3: With high-powered Committee of Secretaries (CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar handing over the Sixth Pay Commission report suggesting a few cosmetic changes, the government is now likely to consider it in the next meeting of the Union Cabinet.

Informing about this, a senior Union Cabinet minister on the condition of anonymity said, "In the next meeting of the Cabinet, the Pay Commission report would be discussed and hopefully a decision will be arrived at."

The CoS, even after reviewing the entire report and going through the grievances raised by various sections of the government employees, however failed to address all the concerns and instead it suggested hiving off the arrears by 18 months.

This means that instead of these to be computed from January 1, 2006, as suggested by the Pay Commission, the employees should get from July 1, 2007.

Pay Revision Committee submitted its Recommendations for new salary hike

The Pay Revision Committee has suggested an additional pay of 15 per cent for the armed and paramilitary forces, over and above the revised basic pay scales. The committee has also proposed to upwardly revise the basic pay scales recommended by the Sixth Pay Commission (SPC) and an increase in grade pay at all levels.

For all central government employees, the SPC had recommended a maximum grade pay of Rs 13,000, while the committee has suggested Rs 18,000 as the highest grade pay. The grade pay fixed by the SPC for the junior most Group A officer was Rs 5,400, which the committee has increased to Rs 7,000. The committee has also suggested annual increments of four per cent instead of the 2.5/3.5 per cent recommended by the SPC. The suggestions drafted by the committee, headed by the Cabinet Secretary, are subject to final approval and sanction of the Cabinet.

However, the committee has also suggested that new pay scales be implemented with effect from July 1, 2007, instead of January 1, 2006, that was recommended by the SPC.If approved, this would imply that Central government employees would not get arrears equivalent to one and half year’s revised salary as was being expected.

The 15 per cent additional pay worked out by the committee ranges from Rs 1,248 per month at the lowest level to a maximum of Rs 9,048 at the highest.

In addition, the committee has suggested 15 pay scales instead of the 22 recommended by the SPC. It has that also suggested 10 pay bands instead of the four recommended by the latter.

The lowest pay scale (1-S) recommended by the SPC was 4440-7440 1300. The corresponding pay scale (PB-1) suggested by the committee is 5,500-16,500 with grade pay of Rs 2,500. The basic pay works out to be Rs 8,000 and with the inclusion of annual increment (4 pc), dearness allowance (15 pc) and the 15 per cent additional pay, the lowest gross pay works out to be Rs 10,816.

The highest pay scale recommended by the SPC was 39,200-67,000 13,000. The corresponding scale suggested by the committee is 40,000-60,000 along with a grade pay of Rs 18,000. In this scale, the basic pay works out to be Rs 58,000 and with the inclusion of increment, DA and additional pay the gross pay at the highest level (PB-10) works out to be Rs 78,416.

No Good News For Babus

The empowered committee examining the 6th pay commission's proposals is unlikely to "rewrite" the original report in any big way. The committee was formed on an assurance from PM Manmohan Singh who said that the concerns of government employees would be accounted for before implementing the salary proposals.

The committee, headed by cabinet secretary K M Chandrasekhar, has progressed well in its work and is expected to submit its much awaited report by July first week of 2008. The pay panel's recommendations, effective from January 2006, are likely to be accepted and implemented "very soon" after that.

The committee will definitely not go into the nitty-gritty of the entire report but may recommend very minor changes here and there

Inflation has been on a continuous uptrend. The fact is that prices of not just petrol, diesel and LPG, but of essential commodities, foodgrain and vegetables have been rising. The pay hike recommend is nothing in comparison to inflation. So Babus should prepare themselves to live with less money!

Sources said the government is being extra cautious in taking a final decision on the pay report proposals and this is believed to be the cause for the delay.

Modification in pay scale only for Defence Personnel and Police

Under pressure on account of mounting expenditure, the government is likely to make only marginal changes in the recommendations made by the Sixth Pay Commission. Changes are likely only in the case of defence personnel and police forces, it is understood.

The committee of secretaries headed by Cabinet secretary K M Chandrashekhar looking into the commission’s recommendations is expected to submit its report by the end of July. These would then go to the Cabinet for approval.

Another panel headed by finance secretary D Subbarao is separately looking into the grievances of defence and police forces. This committee will give its inputs to the committee of secretaries that has secretaries of the departments of home, defence, revenue, expenditure, post, security as well as deputy comptroller and auditor general and member secretary of Railway board as its members.

    Hunger Strike by Defence Men on 29 may 2008

    Former defence personnel, protesting the recommendations of the Sixth pay Commission, have decided to go on a hunger strike in Delhi on ( Thursday, 29 may 2008) and later follow up with rallies across the country.

    “All veterans have been asked to take part in the hunger-strike. Such an action is necessary to inform the people about the mistreatment of the military and highlight the genuine demands of the armed forces personnel. We are resorting to the hunger-strike as we have been driven to the wall by the Pay Commission and have exhausted most avenues of protest,” said Satbir Singh, a gallantry award winner.

    "Till 1972, the armed forces had a separate pay commission. In 1973, we were put in the same basket (along with civil employees). But we want a separate commission," Lt. Gen. (retd) Raj Kadyan told reporters here.

    They wanted to stage protest there April 29 too, but the home ministry denied them permission. "This time we have not sought a permission but informed the government about the rally. Last time we acted like disciplined soldiers, and will continue to do so," Kadyan said

    Remember that, this hunger strike will be only for the benefit of Indian Forces, not for civilian central Gov employees.

    Atomic, Space scientists reject pay structure by SCPC

    After Armed Forces personnel, Atomic and Space scientists are now upset with the "very low" pay structure recommended by the Pay Commission and rejected it outright and also sought intervention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    The scientists and technologists said the salary scales recommended by the Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC) reflected its "appalling attitude" towards the scientific community not tenable with the growth of the country's high-tech departments. They have sought an appointment with Singh, who is also the Minister-in-charge of their departments, for help in rectifying the "anomalies."

    "In any case, the recommendations are no where comparable with IT and IT-enabled sectors and we summarily reject the pay structure recommended by SCPC," President of Confederation of Atomic and Space Scientists and Technologists (COAST), Josheph Winston of Indira Gandhi Centre said in a release.

    The COAST met on May 17 and reviewed the Commission's rrecommendatiaons at Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu and examined in detail the "anomalies" of the recommendations, he said.

    "In the long run, such an apathetic attitude of SCPC would lead to total collapse of scientific and technological base in India along with a complete halt to the indigenous technology," COAST's Vice-President R Rama Varma, VSSC (Trivandrum) said.

    Winston said the poor package recommended would not attract the younger scientists and lead to brain drain and remorse amongst those who continue with these organisations. Later, these scientists would try to leave these departmetns and join MNCs or private sectors, he said. source
