TN is the first and the only state in which the announcement of implementation of Pay commission simultaneously alongwith the central Govt. Today TN CM had announced the implementation of Pay commission for state govt employees. This is unparallel. We will vote for DMK again. This DMK govt is the most labour friendly govt.

The Union Cabinet today gave its approval for implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission. The revised pay scales will come into effect from 1/1/2006 and revised rates of allowances from 1/9/2008. The Cabinet has also decided that arrears will be paid in cash in two instalments – first instalment of 40% during the current year (2008-09) and the remaining 60% in the next financial year (2009-10).

2. The Cabinet has broadly accepted the recommendations of Sixth CPC with some modifications in the wake of representations received from various sections/Associations of Central Government employees. The new system of four Pay Bands with 20 Grade Pays recommended by the Commission has been accepted with some minor modifications.

3. The minimum Basic Pay for a Government servant has been increased to Rs.7000 from Rs.6660 recommended by the Sixth CPC. Consequently, the total emoluments of an employee at the lowest level will exceed Rs.10,000 p.m., including allowances.

4. The other highlights of the Cabinet decision covering all Government employees including the Defence Forces are:-



(i) Enhancement in the fitment in revised pay bands, which was recommended by the Sixth CPC to be based on multiplication factor of 1.74 to 1.86. This would result in increased emoluments for Government employees.

(ii) Increase in the rate of annual increment from 2.5% to 3%.

(iii) Removal of Campus restriction for grant of Transport Allowance.

(iv) Increase in Transport Allowance at the lowest level to Rs.600 (from Rs.400 in A-1/A class cities recommended by the Sixth CPC) and Rs.400 (from Rs.300 in other cities recommended by the Sixth CPC).

(v) At least three promotions have been assured for all Defence Forces’ personnel and civilian employees under the modified Assured Career Progression (ACP) Scheme. While the civilians would get it after 10, 20 and 30 years of service, the Defence Forces Jawans would get ACP in 8, 16 and 24 years.

5. For the Armed Forces personnel, the Commission, for the first time recommended a Military Service Pay (MSP). The Cabinet has increased the rate of MSP for PBORs to Rs.2000 from Rs.1000 recommended by the Commission. The Officers of the Defence Forces would get an MSP of Rs.6000 over and above their Pay.

6. The middle level officers of the Defence Forces namely Colonels and Brigadiers have been placed in the highest Pay Band of PB-4.

7. Senior Lt. Generals overlooked for promotion as Army Commanders due to lack of residual service would now get the grade of Army Commander (Secretary’s grade). In the case of existing Major Generals/Lt. Generals, MSP will be taken into account notionally for fixation of pay on 1/1/2006.

8. As replacement of the pay scale of Rs.24050-26000, a separate pay scale has been carved for DGPs, PCCFs, GM (Railways), members of the Boards of Income Tax, Customs & Central Excise, Postal and Ordnance Factories, among others, who were in this pre-revised scale. This would take them to the level of Rs.80000 in two years as against three years in the pre-revised scale.

9. Further, the IPS Pay Rules and the Indian Forest Service Pay Rules will be appropriately modified to provide in each State cadre one post of DGP and one post of PCCF at the apex level of Rs.80000 for heading their respective Forces.

10. Middle level Police and Civilian officers i.e. DIGs, Conservator of Forests, Scientists E & F, Superintending Engineers, Directors, Additional Commissioners of Income Tax and Central Excise and posts in equivalent grades have also been placed in PB-4.

11. Other salient decisions taken by the Cabinet are:-

(i) The lower limits of Disability Pension for Defence personnel to be doubled from Rs.1550 to Rs.3100. War Disability Pension to be granted at 60%;

(ii) The rates of Special Forces Allowance for Army and Air Force to be equated with navy’s Marine Commando Allowance;

(iii) For the officers of Central Para Military Forces, all the posts of Additional DIG upgraded to DIG level by the Pay Commission to continue to be manned by the cadre officers of CPMFs;

(iv) For the Railway employees who are in receipt of Running Allowance, this allowance will be taken into account while fixing their pay in revised pay bands;

(v) Government has continued the present position of granting Group A scale to Group B officers after 4 years of service and these officers would be placed in PB-3 instead of PB-2 recommended by the Sixth CPC. This would benefit Group B officers of the Railways, Accounts Services, CSS, CSSS and DANICS & DANIPS.

(vi) For Doctors, the Cabinet has approved promotions under the Dynamic ACP Scheme upto Senior Administrative Grade (Joint Secretary level) for Doctors with 20 years of service. Counting of Dearness Allowance (DA) on Non-Practicing Allowance (NPA) as on 01.01.2006 for fixing their pay in revised pay bands has also been approved;

(vii) For the scientists, continuation of the existing system of grant of Special Pay of Rs.2000 p.m. to Scientists G on promotion and doubling of the amount to Rs.4000 p.m. in Departments of Space and Atomic Energy and Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) has been recommended.

12. The financial implications in 2008-09 on account of the implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission as modified by the Cabinet will be around Rs.15700 crore on the Central Budget and Rs.6400 crore on the Railway Budget.

The Cabinet has broadly accepted the recommendations of Sixth CPC with some modifications in the wake of representations received from various sections/Associations of Central Government employees" i.e. Government has Broadly accepted same recommendations as prescribed by the CPC

As per the latest fitment formula approved by the government, the pay will be fixed @1.86 times of the old basic. That was what we were gettinf earlier as on 1.1.2006.Example: Basic:100+DP:50 DA:24% on Basic+DP ie. effectively:36. Total 186, which is nothing but 1.86 times exactly. The only extra component is grade pay. To arrive at the mathematical formula of 1.86 times, which can be done within a fraction of a second, the pay commission and government had taken so much of time. Now, they want to deny the allowances for the past period. GOOD GOVERNANCE. GREAT ETHICS ON THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT. What is there to rejoice?

The modified recommendations approved by the Cabinet is also very much disappointing. Government literally
cheated the group C and D employees. Likewise senior employees who put in more service do get nothing to cheer.
only the new entrants are getting more benefit. Percentage of increase in pay is much more disappointing when compared to 5th pay commission (3.5 times in 5th pay commission). As well there is no fitment benefit which was 40% in 5th pay commission. If the fact is so, I read comments of some people say they are satisfied with the pay commission recommendations. I appeal to all the central government employees and confederation of CG employees to come strong against these recommendations by taking strong industrial action like indefinite strike. Kindly note that if we leave this matter lightly now, then no one else, we will be sufferers for ever.

We the central govt. staff group ‘C’ has been cheated by UPA government. Where is review committee's report (CoS) headed by cabinet secretary with all departmental secretaries? We have every right to know the views of CoS. Are we fool? Approving a rejected 6th PC reports by all sectors from march’08, how UPA govt. demanding it as an Independence Day gift. This may treated as biggest cheating after Independence.

hike is not uniform for all the grades of employees, why such partiality. this happens in all pay commissions.
when the govt wants to hike the salaries it can hike by a percentage
across the board.
why such blunders are being done?

The Govt. of Uttar Pradesh, India has approved six pay commission reports for his employees. Uttar Pradesh Govt. said that State Govt. will follow the Sixth Pay Commission Report for next salary of theirs employees. All organization of govt. Employees in UP welcomed the decision of Government.

It is very disgusting on the part of the 6th Pay Commission as well as Committee of Secretaries and very discouraging for DANICS officers that inspite of performing duties equivalent to PCS officers in neighbouring states they are still placed in Group B. The 5th Pay Commission had recommended Group A status for DANICS officers in view of duties performed by them.

hi,
i am B.E mechanical engineer working railways for last 13 years.selected garduate apprentice by RRB. at present my salary is Rs 27000 only. my new pay comes around Rs 35,000. for nest ten years this not sufficient. Graduate Engineers in Raliways are not at all given due treatment in pay commission. it is shame on the part of Govt, to treat Graduate Engineers equal to diploma holders. even non- technical graduates have good oppurtunity for growth.

it is total degradation of Graduate Engineers and the institution frames and approves B.E., all india council for Technical Education (AICTE).

my classmates who appeared alongwith me and failed in interview, are now earning almost double the salary that i am drawing today.

is there any one who works for justice in pay commission or cabinet secretary or railway board level to address my regret?

The pay calculator is silent on pay calculation for those employees who has joined after 1.1.2006. In such cases, how the arrears and pay for the month of september, 2008 can be calculated.

1-7-2007: 17%
1-1-2008: 23%

why special pay for scientist G only when there is a regular scale for scientist G. In that case all scientist should be given a special pay according scale. Please review this decision.

THE UNJUSTIFIED REDUCTION IN THE PERCENTAGE OF DEARNESS ALLOWANCE WITH EFFECT FROM 1-1-2006!

Dear Readers!

The Present Percentage of DA is as follows.
From 1-1-2006- 24%
From 1-7-2006-29% [5%]
From 1-1-2007-35% [6%]
From 1-7-2007-41% [6%]
From 1-1-2008-47% [6%]
From 1-7-2008-55% [8%]

The Proposed Percentage of DA by the 6TH Pay Commission is as follows.
From 1-1-2006-No DA
From 1-7-2006-2%
From 1-1-2007-6% [4%]
From 1-7-2007-9% [3%]
From 1-1-2008-12%[3%]

It can be seen that from 1-7-2006, the Percentage is reduced by 60%,from 1-1-2007 by 33.33%,from 1-7-2007 by 50% and from 1-1-2008 by 50%.It is stated that the Proposed Percentage from 1-7-2008 is 12% [4%]

At first, the Government propagated that there will be 40 to 50% increase.Then it modified it as 28% increase.Now it says that there will be an average increase of 21%.
According to the available information, the increase expected will be only around 20%.
So, the reduction of the Percentage of DA ranging from 33.33% to 60% is wholly unjustified. Justice demands only a reduction of 20% from the existing DA.

So, the Proposed Percentage of DA on the New Scales of Pay should be as follows.
From 1-7-2006- 4%, from 1-1-2007-5%, from 1-7-2007-5%, from 1-1-2008-5% and from 1-7-2008- 6.5%. So, the total percentage of DA as on 1-7-2008 should be 25.5% and not 16% as propagated.
Will the Central Govt look into this and do justice?

Govt. employees never needed a pay hike because as per reports they earn 4 times their salary as corruption money. Only good VRS was needed so that general catagory honest employees could harvest their talent in private sector and leave Govt. sector to die its own death.

Respected Sir,

I am a constable from Madhya Pradesh Police. I joined CBI/AC-III, CGO Complex, Lodhi Road, New Delhi on 14.12.2006 on deputation basis in the pay scale of 4620/-. I had been given my consent for taking Central Government Pay Scale. I recruited on 01.01.2007 for the post of Constable in MP Police where now the present Basic Pay scale of Constable is 3050-75-4590/- as per Central Govt. As per rule one ACP already granted to me after the completion of 12 years of service and my pay has been fixed in the scale of 3500-80-5200.

After 6th pay commission implementation my pay does not fixed as per Central Govt. Rules. I had been applied for taking Central Govt. Pay Scale but my pay still not fixed. As per discussion with the accountants they informed that my pay will be fixed in the lower scale i.e. 3050-75-4590.

In the CBI department provision is Central Govt. Pay Scale after ACP 3200-85-4900/- for Constable.
I am requesting that please clarify that why my pay will be fixed in the scale of 3050-75-4590/- instead of ACP Scale 3200-85-4900/-

(1) I am recruited in the post of constable in MP Police
(2) Pay scale of Constable in M.P. 3050-75-4590/- as per Central Govt. rule.
(3) My increment date is January’ 01 every year.
(4) I joined CBI on deputation on 14.12.2006 in the pay scale of 4620/- after granting one ACP from MP State Police as basic scale of ACP 3500-80-5200
Please fix my pay as per Central Govt. Rules and 6th pay Commission rules.
