7CPC Seventh Pay Commission and Merger of DA: Demand by Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel

 "Thus, at present, DA is more than 80 per cent of the basic pay but it is not made part of the basic pay."

    "The Delhi BJP chief said the government should set up the Seventh Pay Commission."

Centre's proposed DA hike too little too late: BJP

NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP today termed hike in dearness allowance (DA), proposed to be announced by the government, as 'too less and too late' and demanded its merger with the employees' basic pay.

"In the wake of rising prices of all essential commodities, inflation has been hurting not only government employees but also the poor and the middle class. The latest DA hike proposed to be announced by the government is too less and too late," said Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel.

Goel said the Fifth Pay Commission had recommended that if the DA crosses more than 50 per cent then it should be clubbed with the basic pay.


"This provided some relief to government employees. But this was discontinued in the Sixth Pay Commission. Thus, at present, DA is more than 80 per cent of the basic pay but it is not made part of the basic pay. Now, the DA is expected to increase by 10 to 11 per cent but the government is not waking up," he said in a statement.

The Delhi BJP chief said the government should set up the Seventh Pay Commission.

Cabinet decision to increase retirement age deferred

, by indianmilitaryveterans


The government may make the anouncement in the Prime Minister's 15 August address

A proposal to increase the retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years came to the Cabinet on Thursday but a decision was deferred. The government might make the announcement in the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address, his last before general elections in 2014. The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions has proposed an increase in retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years, top sources confirmed.

There are around five million central government employees in India. The previous occassion the government raised the retirement age of central government employees was in 1998, from 58 to 60 years. The move is meant to ease the financial burden on the government in terms of its pension liabilities, sources said.

The retirement age of professors in all central universities was recently raised to 65 years. D L Sachdev, national secretary of the All India Trade Union Congress, said his union was totally against the increase of the retirement age beyond 60. It would hurt the youth, especially when the government is doing nothing to create jobs for them, Sachdev said.

Congress-affiliated Indian National Trade Union Congress national president Sanjeeva Reddy said his union had been demanding increase in the retirement age to 62 years and would welcome it.

Minister for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanaswami had ruled out an increase in the retirement age to a question in Parliament in the winter session this year. An official in the ministry, when asked, refused to speak about it.

Govt likely to announce 10% DA hike next month

, by indianmilitaryveterans

The government is likely to announce a hike in dearness allowance to 90% from existing 80% in September, benefiting about 50 lakh central employees and 30 lakh pensioners ahead of the festival season.

According to official sources, the preliminary assessment suggests that dearness allowance hike will be in the range of 10-11% and would be effective from July 1 this year.

He said the exact number could be calculated only when the revised all India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) for the month of June will be released on August 30.

According to the provisional data released by government on July 31, the retail inflation for factory workers for the month of June stood at 11.06%, higher than 10.68% in May this year.

As per the practise, the government uses CPI-IW data for past 12 month or a year to arrive at a number for the purpose of any DA hike. Thus, the retail inflation for industrial workers between July, 2012 to June 2013 would be used to take final call on the matter.

"It would be around 10% this time and would be announced in September," Confederation of Central Government Employees Secretary General K K N Kutty told PTI.

"Besides, raising DA to 90%, the government should merge 50% of the allowance with the basic pay as was our demand. DA breached 50% benchmark long ago", he said.

As per the practise, the DA is merged with basic pay when it breaches the 50% mark. DA merger helps employees as their other allowances are paid as a proportion of basic pay.

Kutty said, "This DA hike won't help much as actual rise in the cost of living is 171% since January 1, 2011."

There would be a double digit hike in DA after about three years. It was last in September, 2010 that the government had announced a hike of 10% to be given with effect from July 1, 2010.

DA was hiked to 80% from 72% in April, 2013, effective from January 1, this year.
