7th Pay Commission latest news: Implement 7CPC recommendations in favor of employees and pensioners, says J&K National Mazdoor Conference leader

On Monday leader of National Mazdoor Conference, (NMC) in Jammu and Kashmir urged Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to take up the issue of implementation of Seventh Pay Commission in favor of employees and pensioners who are eagerly waiting for their money.

New Delhi, October 24: Almost three months after the 7th Pay Commission recommendations approved by the Narendra Modi government, the decision maker are yet to implement it. Earlier there were reports that the recommendation made by the high-level 7th Pay Commission committee will be implemented in Dusshera, but the festival has passed and there are no signs when the measures will be taken. On Monday leader of National Mazdoor Conference, (NMC) in Jammu and Kashmir urged Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to take up the issue of implementation of Seventh Pay Commission in favor of employees and pensioners who are eagerly waiting for their money.

Subhash Shastri, President of NMC on Monday wrote a letter to J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to regularise the services of 61,000 daily rated workers. On Sunday Shastri addressed a number of NMC workers and said that more than eight lakh families of the State are dependent upon salary, pension, and wages. He also said that the State Government of Jammu and Kashmir should always give due attention towards various issues and problems of the employees, pensioners, and daily rated workers.

Shastri further stressed on the need of implementation of 7th Pay Commission saying that the daily rated workers get only Rs 350 for working in a various department of the state government. That department had already been approved by the Central Government as Minimum Wage Rate, on which Shastri further argued that it is difficult for each and every government employees to fulfill their basic need in the time of hiking prices of essential commodities

On Sunday the NMC adopted several resolutions which included release of pending wages, salary, and pension in favor of employees, pensioners and daily wage workers well before Diwali festival starts

Several resolutions were adopted at the meeting include the release of pending wages, salary and pension in favor employees, pensioners, and daily rated workers well before Diwali festival beside the release of pending installment of DA due from July etc. Now the NMC workers are waiting for government’s reply, which is expected soon.

On the other side the central government employees unions, National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) had demanded a hike of Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and also asked to raise the fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times. For which the Narendra Modi government had also formed a 22-member high-powered committee headed by Secretary. In July the Narendra Modi government has accepted most of the recommendations made by the high-powered panel on of the 7th Pay Commission, which has been implemented from January 1, 2016

Babus looking for clarification on 7th CPC Bunching Benefit

7th Pay Commission recommended for bunching of two stages in the report para 5.1.36 , “however if situation does arise whenever more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment equal to 3 percent may be given for every two stages bunched, and pay fixed in the subsequent cell in the pay matrix.”

Also Government released order on7th September 2016, with the following instructions

1. One additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of Government servant drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level

2. Pay drawn by two Government servants in a given Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale where the higher pay is at least 3% more than the lower pay shall constitute two stages. Officers drawing pay where the difference is less than 3% shall not be entitled for this benefit.


if two persons drawing pay of 53,000 and 54,590 in the GP 10,000 are to be fitted in the new Pay Matrix, the person drawing pay of 53,000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to 1,36,210 and the person drawing pay of 54,590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to 1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of Level 14 in the pay of 1, 44,200 but to avoid bunching the person drawing pay of 54,590 will get fixed in second cell of Level 14 in the pay of 1,48,500.

Here is the table for bunching benefit for each Grade Pay

Dearness Allowance announcement before Diwali ?

Usually Government approves the dearness allowance during the 1st week of September and release the government order in 3rd or 4th week of September, but this year government not yet approved dearness allowance from 1.7.2016.

 After 7th Pay Commission Implementation the dearness allowance computation formula & the base year must be changed, the computation formula & base year changed in the earlier pay commission also

Pay Commission Base Year

3rd Pay Commission 1960 =100
4th Pay Commission 1982=100
5th Pay Commission 1982=100
6th Pay Commission 2001=100
7th Pay Commission 2011=100 (expected)

During September 1st week JCM Staff side Secretary writes letter to Ministry of Finance with the subject “Future computation of Dearness Allowance and adoption base index figure to Revised Minimum Wage”, in this letter Union demands to grant of 3% dearness allowance with effect from 1.7.2016, even though there is no official announcement from the government. Even all the state government employees are waiting for the announcement from the Central government.

And again last week Union writes letter to the Secretary, Ministry of Finance to grant the dearness allowance at the earliest.

Dearness allowance from 1.7.2016 should be 3%

Dearness Allowance (DA) Formula after 7th Pay Commission (assumption)

=((12 Months Average of AICPIN)-261.4)*100/261.4)

All the government employees are eagerly waiting for the announcement from the government. As per the source the dearness allowance announcement will be released before Diwali festival. Hope this announcement will be a Diwali gift for Central government employees.

Employee can exceed earned leave limit: HC

Lays down law for calculating accumulated unutilised leave

In a significant judgment, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has ruled that the accumulated unutilised leave of an employee cannot be reduced to 300 days even if he is entitled to leave encashment for a maximum of 300 days.

The ruling came in case of Haryana Government employees after the High Court was told that accumulated earned leave was reduced to 300 days time and again during the course of service on the assumption that they were entitled to a maximum of 300 days earned leave.

Eventually, when the time came for encashment of unutilised earned leave, they were granted the benefit for lesser number of days.

“If an employee is entitled to leave encashment for a maximum limit of 300 days, that does not mean that the accumulated unutilised leave is to be reduced to 300 days if it exceeds the limit. The earned leave will continue to accumulate till the retirement of the petitioners and the petitioners are to be granted the maximum benefit of 300 days, as stated in the rules,” Justice Kuldip Singh ruled.

The ruling came on a petition by Jaipal Phogat and another petitioner against the State of Haryana and other respondents. Justice Kuldip Singh asserted the “unfortunate controversy” was regarding the method used to calculate unutilised earned leave of petitioners Jaipal Phogat and Jaibhagwan.

Retired mechanics, the petitioners had claimed that they were entitled to leave encashment of 300 days unutilised earned leave. Petitioner number one was is entitled to 300 days leave encashment, but was granted the benefit of 257 days. Petitioner number two, on the other hand, was entitled to 268 days leave encashment, but was granted the benefit of 211 days.

During the course of the hearing, Justice Kuldip Singh asked both parties to file calculation sheets. He added that the examination of calculation sheet regarding Phogat showed mischief was done while calculating unutilised earned leave on April 27, 1999, May 22, 2003, and October 31, 2007.

The unutilised earned leave for 362 days, 375 days and 335 days, respectively, was reduced to 300 days on the assumption that the petitioner was entitled to a maximum of 300 days earned leave.
Similarly, in Jaibhagwan’s case, earned leave was reduced on August 11, 2002, May 22, 2003, and August 22, 2003, from 308 days, 307 days and 305 days, respectively.

“The calculation done by the respondents is not only mischievous, but wrong application of the principle of calculation of unutilised earned leave is also there. As such, the calculations made by the petitioners are accepted and that of the respondents are set aside,” the High Court ruled.
