Goa, Haryana and Gujarat to implement 7th CPC for state employees

The government will implement the 7th pay commission but this will entail additional monthly liability of Rs 72 crore, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar informed the House on Wednesday. The additional expenditure of Rs 72 crore includes Rs 69 crore towards salary component and Rs 13 crore for pension fund. Replying to a question tabled by Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai, Parsekar said that doubts should be not raised about government's intention in implementing 7th pay commission. But he did not spell out the deadline for implementing 7th pay commission in the state even as he said there is no substance in the allegations by Opposition that Goa has been caught in the debt trap.

Haryana government will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on the pattern of the central government, state Finance Minister Abhimanyu said today (July 29).
A committee, constituted by the state government, was studying the report of Madhavan Commission, which would also be implemented in the larger interest of the employees as it would directly benefit 60,000 to 65,000 employees, he said.
Gujarat In a major bonanza for over 8.77 lakh Gujarat government employees and pensioners ahead of next year’s assembly polls, Chief Minister Anandiben Patel on Sunday announced the implementation of 7th Pay Commission from August 1. Over 4.65 lakh Gujarat government employees and more than 4.12 lakh pensioners would benefit from this decision, a release from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said. However, the state government employees will not get pay hike benefits from January 1 this year as accepted by the Centre, instead it will be effective from August 1. “Chief Minister Anandiben Patel has accepted the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission and announced to implement it in the state from August 1,” it said. The Centre had on July 25 notified the implementation of 7th Pay Commission for Central Government employees from January 1.
As per the release, the new hike will benefit employees and pensioners of state government, panchayats and granted institutions in Gujarat. “Employees of class-4 to class-1 will now get a hike of 14.60 per cent to 25 per cent in their salaries,” it added. As the Centre is now expected to start deliberations to decide the hike in allowances, the state government will take appropriate decision about allowances as per the announcement by the Centre, added the release. Earlier, Gujarat government spokesperson and state Finance Minister Saurabh Patel had said that the government may have to bear an extra-burden of Rs 6,000 crore annually if it decides to implement the pay hike suggested by the 7th Pay Commission.

7th CPC DA calculation should give same benefit of Sixth CPC

An interesting point is raised by Mr. Alpesh on 7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA As per this current DA calculator 6th pay DA would be 7% and 7th pay DA is 2% from July onwards.

Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike. 7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.

Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor. For example… If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400. So as per DA calculator, 7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400 . 2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay will be 1028. So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration.

In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended. Suppose if we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.

Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400. And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to 3.5…!!! If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years.
