How did Media arrive the 7th CPC Minimum Pay as Rs.23400?

For the past few days some News Agencies belongs to TV networks are blabbering about 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Implementation. They repeatedly claimed that Empowered Committee recommends 30% Increase in minimum wage. Thus Minimum Pay will be increased from 18000 to 23400 and highest pay will be increased from 250000 to 325000.

They actually exposing their ignorance by saying 30% increase will increase the Minimum Pay to 23400/-

The 7th CP recommended 14.29 % increase in minimum Pay The Minimum Pay in Sixth CPC = 7000 Total DA as on 1.1.2016 125% = 8750 Total Pay = 15750

Minimum Pay Recommended by 7th CPC = 18000 Increase Over Sixth CPC Pay = 14.29%
If the Cabinet Committee decides to increase 30% , The Minimum Pay will be Rs. 20475. Rounding of to 1000 may take it to Rs.21000.

How are Some familiar and Established news Media telling that 30% increase will take the Minimum Wage to Rs.23400? Without knowing the fundamentals of fixing Minimum Pay, they simply calculated 30% increase over Rs.18000 (which already has 14.29% inbuilt increase) and predicted Rs.23400 will be the Minimum Wage.

This false news created buss among cg employees. Now everybody talking about Rs.23400 as Minimum Pay. The NCJCM demanded to fix Rs.26000 as Minimum Wage according to Dr. Akroyd Formula based on the retail prices as on 1.1.2014. This is 65% increase over sixth CPC Minimum Wage +125% DA (7000+8750=15750).

If the government decide to increase the Minimum Wage 30% level, then the Minimum Pay will be Rs.21000 and Fitment factor will be fixed at 3.0.

For retiring soldiers, it’s darkness at noon 

Dear fellow Faujis,

 A news report from "The Hindu" is pasted BELOW. It is titled "For retiring soldiers, it's darkness at noon", and concerns the thoughtlessness of MoD in tackling the corruption within DGR. 

 Finally, it is the Jawan who gets screwed because of corruption at (civilian & military) officer-levels ... ! Even when the courses are re-started, Jawans would have lost that time, besides suffering the "inconvenience" (loss in many ways) due to across-the-board cancellation. Maj Gen S.G.Vombatkere *******************************************
  For retiring soldiers, it’s darkness at noon www.thehindu.com “Resettlement courses will be restarted after making sure there are no irregularities. The Defence Ministry has asked to ascertain whether these courses fit into the criteria of the Ministry of Skill National New Delhi, June 23, 2016 For retiring soldiers, it’s darkness at noon Special Correspondent PIC: The now-withdrawn resettlement courses used to equip jawans for a civilian job. File Photo: Nissar Ahmad A govt. decision to cancel all resettlement courses has disrupted the retirement plans of thousands of jawans. Retirement plans of thousands of jawans have been disrupted by a government decision to cancel all resettlement courses that prepare them for a second career after leaving military service. There is widespread resentment in the ranks over the sweeping decision taken in the recent weeks. Many soldiers feel the decision was taken without considering the difficulties they will go through on leaving the military, most of them in their youth, after completing just 20 years of working life. “Resettlement courses will be restarted after making sure there are no irregularities.
 The Defence Ministry has asked to ascertain whether these courses fit into the criteria of the Ministry of Skill Development,” a senior Defence Ministry official told The Hindu. After April 2016, all such courses should be compliant with the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) of the Ministry, he said. “It was also found that many of these courses and institutes are fraud or do not exist. This will not benefit the jawans. So they will be restarted as soon as they are checked,” the official said. The last six months to a year of his active military life can be used by a soldier to attend a resettlement course that will give him a qualification to pick up a civilian job. 

During this period, he is paid his salary and provided the course free of cost. The Ministry explanation for the postponement of the course has not impressed the other ranks of the military. “Why have they postponed all courses? There are courses that are already compliant with the Skill Development Ministry guidelines, many of the institutes are approved by the NSDC [National Skill Development Corporation],” one of the affected soldiers said. According to those in the know, the DGR (The Directorate-General Resettlement) in the MoD that assists retiring service personnel with courses for starting a second career, approves resettlement course programme once every two years. 

Currently, such approved resettlement course programme 2015-17 is under progress. Meanwhile, the Central government has asked the DGR to redesign courses as per the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF). Sources claim that the Ministry of Defence had agreed to conduct the courses in NSDC-approved institutes, even as they prepare all courses under NSQF. The sudden move to postpone all courses indefinitely meant for jawans came after reports emerged in media last month about CBI investigation into alleged irregularities in DGR. “We are not saying that all courses were clean. Of course, there was corruption and misuse.

 However, there are several institutes that are reputed, inspected and verified by the DGR and others. Why has the government taken the easiest route, of just cancelling all the courses?” one retiring soldier said. The question is whether the government realises the inconvenience caused to thousands of retiring soldiers, they say. Thousands of them have moved families back home, and were to start the courses. In the way of the government decisions, they will all now go back to their units.

7th CPC latest

Comrades,

The empowered committee of Secretaries headed by the Cabinet Secretary had discussion from past five months on the charter of demands raised by the staff side, The finance ministry is working out the financial implications arising out of the improved recommendations of the 7th CPC especially on the minimum wage and fitment formula being improved, granting two increment on promotion and having annual increment on 1st Jan and 1st July instead of just on 1st July.

This will benefit a lot of persons on promotion. The other aspect is considering grant of advances, which the 7th CPC has recommended for abolition. The formal announcement by the of the 7th CPC acceptance is likely to be made by the Government just before the 11th July strike by the CG employees indicating the actual minimum wage and fitment formula.

The cabinet Secretary will present the view of the empowered committee of Secretaries before the Union Cabinet meeting based upon the principle adopted in actual calculation of the minimum wage and fitment formula

The 7th CPC had adopted the Dr Aykroyd formula minimum wage is calculated on the basis of the 15th ILC norms. But erred in many aspects for example the average of prices of last 12 months was taken, The housing weight age , education weight age etc . The prices of essential items are rising from past many years, even in last six months the retail inflation is rising above 5.4%.

Secondly the prices quoted by the GOVERNMENT OF INDIA MINISTRY OF LABOUR & EMPLOYMENT LABOUR BUREAU CLEREMONV, SHIMLA

Http://Labourbureaunew.Gov.In/ , the Director of Economic & statics , Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi & the retail market prices are varying .

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the LABOUR & EMPLOYMENT LABOUR BUREAU taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 21,000 / and fitment formula works to 3.00. This will result in 34% wage hike without allowances.

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the Director of Economic & statics , Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 23,000 / and fitment formula works to 3.30. This will result in 50% wage hike without allowances.

If we calculate the minimum wage based upon the retail market taking prices as on 1st July 2015 the minimum wage works out to Rs 28,000 / and fitment formula works to 4.00. This will result in 70% wage hike without allowances.

The most important demand is that of the CG employees is the minimum wage and fitment formula. The Staff side had demand of minimum wage of Rs 26000/- & fitment formula of 3.71. Against this the 7th CPC had recommended minimum wage of Rs 18000/- & fitment formula of 2.57.

The 7th CPC recommendations has provided only at 14% wage hike at Group “C” level it is only ranging from Rs 2240/- to Rs 3500/- increase per month, and at Group “B” level ranging from Rs 4000/- to Rs 6500/- increase per month. After deductions & income tax the net increase will be just from Rs 500/- to Rs 3000/- only. This increase is lowest by any pay commission, hence vast changes are required as the prices of essential commodities have gone up and also the inflation rate has gone up. Comrades it is the time to struggle, we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we should get at least 50 % wage hike without allowances, as allowances are not taken into pension benefit. Only struggle will get us benefit. Please don’t believe on rumours. Now it is now or never.
Comradely yours
