CCGEW will protest against 6th CPC report

The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers (CCGEW), Pune, has decided to protest against the report of the 6th Pay Commission as submitted by Justice Shrikrishna to the Government.

The issue will be discussed in the meeting of confederation's Pune branch to hold demonstration at District Collector's office on April 17 from 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm.

The protestors would be protesting against the adhoc and PLB bonus, which will be replaced by performance related incentive scheme; the women employees will be provided with staggering working hours, special leave for child care, maternity leave up to 180 days, increased working facilities like working women hostels etc.

Other areas, which have invited the attention of the protestors are the proposed rate of increment ie 25 per cent may bring about a dip in the quantum of the pre-revised increment in certain cases.

The demand for increment at 5 per cent of pay stands revised.

The increment in all cases will be effective from July 1. The government has been given the discretion to do away with the grade pay even in individual cases as part of introduction of performance related pay scheme.

The minimum wage/salary is fixed at Rs 5,740 and not at 6,600. The CCA is subsumed in the transport allowance and the transport allowance is increased by 4 times.

Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) is replaced by medi-insurance.

The number of closed holidays has been reduced to three and restricted holidays have been increased to 8.

The commission also recommended abolition of Group D posts, which means elimination of 12 lakh posts in the central government services.

The sixth pay commission’s recommendation on wage/salary rise is grossly discriminatory against the employees category vis-à-vis the high level officer.

A large number of protestors from different walks of life are expected to participate in the protest. Source

Possiblity of change of 6th CPC report

It is not hidden now that sixth pay commission report is completely rejected by 98% of government employees. Sixth pay panel was required to renew and improve pay scales, but main work done by 6th CPC is introduction of "pay bands" (without much improvements in salary).

Just imagine how IAS got the best out of the 6th CPC ranging basic pay from Rs 39000 to 67000 while all the officers right from entry to seniors are placed in Rs 15600 to 37000. What does it indicate?

Government wants people supports in next election. There is high probability that Sixth pay commission report will be modified to satisfy large number of people.

PSUs demanded independent pay stucture

There is a lot of money at Indian PSUs now. The government salary is too low in comparison to other private sectors. But profit of PSU is almost same to equivalent private sector. There is very high demand of talented and skilled man power in PSUs to retain the high growth . But they are unable to attract suitable people because of low salary.

So now PSUs are demanding independent pay structure from government. Sixth pay commission report also recommended it.

If this will be approved by government, all PSUs can independently fix perks and various allowances for its employees same as Private sector. Government will not have to pay for it. This extra cost will be paid by PSUs from their profits.

People working in PSUs will find soon lot of differences in salary because of variable pay and perks.

Indian Police Wants World Class Pay

IPS officers are not satisfied with the pay scale recommended in sixth pay commission. They want world class salary if people wants world class facility from Indian Police.

It is a common thinking among people is that too much pay hike for government servant is unnecessary and it will cause high inflation rate. Public don't understand that how important is to increase pay upto decent level, this will cause reduction in corruption and ultimately will help common people.

All news media also highlighting at most of the time, pay hike of 26000 Rs (fixed) to 80000 Rs. But how much percentage of employees are in this category, nobody tells. The percentage is very very low. Most of the central government employees have not got recommended pay as they are expecting.
