“For an ideal employer, it is necessary to revise the wages and
allowances on the specified date. Government of India is also an ideal
employer. Although it has failed to implement the 7CPC on its slated
date, it is now bound to provide arrears

.”

New Delhi, May 10: Almost 18 months have passed and a large number of
central government employees are eagerly waiting for arrears on allowances.
The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), the joint body of employee
unions, believe that the demands made by central government employees on
arrears on allowances from January 2016 is genuine. Shiv Gopal Mishra the
NJCA convenor while speaking to India.com said: “As the 7th Pay Commission
was scheduled to be implemented from January 2016, it is the right of
central government employees to seek arrears from specified date”. 
On being asked whether the government is delaying the arrears as it may
adversely affect the exchequer the NJCA chief “The employees wait for pay
commission hike, for ten years. If this government had failed to implement
the 7th pay Commission recommendations on the scheduled dates then they
must at least release the arrears to address the resentment among the
employees.

“For an ideal employer, it is necessary to revise the wages and allowances
on the specified date. Government of India is also an ideal employer.
Although it has failed to implement the 7CPC on its slated date, it is now
bound to provide arrears.
The NJCA chief had also dismissed the concerns raised by RBI and a few days
ago its convenor said to India.com that “The delay has been done by the
Lavasa committee, why must employees pay the price. If RBI thinks that it
would cause an adverse impact on inflation, then they should think of an
alternative method to control inflation.”

Earlier this week, Shiv Gopal Mishra while speaking to India.com said,
“Arrears would mostly be provided to the employees”.
Although 15 days have been passed the Committee on Allowances’ has not made
its report public and the Finance Ministry said, “Modifications have been
suggested in some allowances which are applicable universally to all
central government employees”.

Meanwhile, the committee is also looking for the suggestion of the 7th Pay
Commission which has called for abolition of 52 of the 196 existing
allowances, apart from subsuming 36 smaller allowances.
