7th Pay Commission: We’re realistic about pay gap, says union leader 7 वें वेतन आयोग: वेतन अंतर के बारे में हम यथार्थवादी हैं

एक शीर्ष केंद्रीय सरकारी कर्मचारियों के यूनियन नेता ने कहा कि शीर्ष
नौकरशाहों और निचले वेतनमान वाले कर्मचारियों के बीच वेतन के अनुपात को कम
किया जाना चाहिए। छठी वेतन आयोग ने शीर्ष नौकरशाहों एवं निम्न कर्मचारियों के
बीच वेतन का अनुपात दूसरे वेतन आयोग से अब तक छठे वेतन आयोग तक 1:41 से घटा कर
1:12 कर दिया था जिसे सातवें वेतन आयोग ने बढ़ाकर 1:13.9 कर दिया। 

New Delhi: A top most central government employees’ union leader today
admitted on condition of anonymity that he did not expect to be paid the
same pay as the bureaucrats to lower paid employees — but said that the
ratio of pay between bureaucrats and lower paid employees should be
minimised.

He said we are “realistic” about the prospects of pay gap, describing the
situation as “tricky”.
Speaking to The Sen Times, union leader said they were under no illusions
about their own positions.
He said, “It is tricky at the moment. We are
realistic. The ratio of pay between lowest earning employees and top
bureaucrats should be reduced. 
“We don’t do mind work, or as much as the bureaucrats do but we are not
happy that we get low paid to work hard for a living,” he added. 
The cabinet approved June last year the 7th Pay Commission recommendations
of an average 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay for the 4.8 million central
government employees effective from January 1, 2016. 
The ratio of pay between the highest declared pay matrix (Level-18) and the
lowest grade (Level -1) in the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is
1:13.9, which was 1:12 in the 6th pay scale. 
All pay commissions except 7th Pay Commission made up pay gap between lower
paid employees and top officers from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to
Sixth pay commission 1:12. 
The first pay commission was recommended pay of the top bureaucrats 41
times higher than the government employees at the bottom. The top
bureaucrats were given salary Rs 2,263 while the lowest earning employees
got Rs 55. 
Subsequent pay commissions reduced the ratio of pay between lowest earning
employees and top bureaucrats from 1:41 in 1947 to about 1:12 in 2006. 
It may be mentioned that the central government employees’ unions are
demanding for a long time that the pay ratio between the highest and the
lowest grades should be minimized. They have also demanded that Rs 25,000
should be the minimum pay in the new pay scale and the fitment factor will
be higher than the 2.57 times approved by the government based on the pay
commission recommendations. 
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had assured unions leaders of central
government employees in the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s house, a
day after the cabinet cleared 7th Pay Commission award, that the pay gap
should be minimized. 
However, the government has now ruled out for minimizing the issue of Pay
gap under the 7th Pay Commission.
