Recommendation


The CG Staff are not yet given the full Benefit of 7th CPC
Recommendation 
 



The actual increase on account of implementation of 7th CPC
recommendation is still not fully available to Central govt Staffs.


 

The recommendation of 7th Pay Commission has been implemented with effect
from 1.1.2016 and the revised salary is being paid from this effective
date. The Central Government, after implementing the Pay Panel report,
hasn’t announce any decision about Allowances even after 12 months, created
frustration among central government employees. 
The Pay Commission is constituted once in Ten Years to revise the Pay and
Allowances and Pension for Govt Servants and Pensioners. Accordingly, the
7th Pay Commission was formed and it submitted its report to the Government
on 19-11-2015. The Government Accepted the Report without any major changes
and announced on 29.6.2016 that it would be implemented with effect from
1.1.2016.
Since the increase in salary which is paid from 1.1.2016 was very less, it
has demolished the expectations of CG Staffs. 
Very important aspect in revising Pay and Allowance is House Rent
Allowance. The rates of HRA is determined based on the Population of the
Cities in which the Govt Servants are working. Accordingly, 10,20 and 30%
of Basic Pay is paid as HRA in Sixth CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to
revise it as 8%, 16% and 24%. 
The Unions and Federations demanded to increase the HRA rates or at least
to restore the Sixth CPC rates. Hence the Government has announced that a
committee would be constituted to examine the Allowances, until then all
the Allowances would be paid in Sixth CPC rates. As a result of this, HRA
is being paid in old rates (Sixth CPC ) along with revised 7th CPC Basic
Pay to CG Staffs. Now the CG Staffs have realized that very purpose of
forming a high-level committee is not for resolving the issues but it is a
delaying tactics. 
Consequent to Pay Revision, the major increase in Salary is used to come
from HRA only. Though one year is completed after the implementation of 7th
CPC recommendation, the Government is delaying to take the decision over
allowances. Due to this, the CG staffs are losing monitory benefits
considerably


For example ..

The increase in Pay and HRA of a Government servant who is drawing Rs.10000
in pre revised scale is given below … 

6th CPC
Basic Pay
DA (125%)
BP + DA
10% HRA
20% HRA
30% HRA
10000
12500
22500
1000
2000
3000
7th CPC
Basic Pay
DA (0%)
BP + DA
10% HRA
20% HRA
30% HRA
25700
0
25700
2570
5140
7710
Hike
3200
1570
3140
4710
If the Monthly salary of Government servant with 10Years of service is
Rs.22500, now the Actual increase of his salary is only Rs. 3200. Through
this example it is quite obvious that, one can get the real increase in
salary only after the HRA is paid in 7th CPC revised rates.
