Report of Navbharat Times  (Times Group Hindi Daily)
7th Pay Commission – लाखों केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों के लिए सातवें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों पर नया वेतन पाने के इंतजार की घड़ी जल्द खत्म हो सकती है। मोदी सरकार अब इसे लागू करने के अंतिम चरण में पहुंच गई है।
सातवें वेतन आयोग की अनुशंसा के बाद उसपर विचार और लागू करने के तरीकों के बारे में रास्ता तलाशने के लिए ग्रुप ऑफ सेक्रटरी की अंतिम मीटिंग मंगलवार को हो गई। अब कमिटी अगले कुछ दिनों में अपनी रिपोर्ट दे देगी जिसके बाद कैबिनेट के सामने इसे मंजूरी के लिए रखा जाएगा।
7th Pay Commission – सूत्रों के अनुसार केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की ओर से दबाव बढ़ाने और साल के अंत में यूपी, पंजाब सहित पांच राज्यों के विधानसभा चुनाव को देखते हुए सरकार जल्द इसे लागू करना चाहती है। सरकार उन्हें नाराज करना नहीं चाहती है।
ऐसा होने पर पहली अगस्त को इंक्रीमेंट के साथ मिलने वाली सैलरी में इजाफा तो होगा ही साथ ही इसमें जनवरी से अब तक का एरियर भी शामिल हो सकता है।
7वां वेतन आयोग एक जनवरी 2016 से लागू माना जाएगा. खबरों के अनुसार बढ़ी हुई सैलरी एक अगस्त 2016 को कर्मचारियों और पेंशनधारियों के खातों में जमा होगी. हालांकि अभी यह स्पष्ट नहीं है कि पिछले छ: महीने का पूरा एरियर एक अगस्त को ही मिल जाएगा या इसे किस्तों में दिया जाएगा.

Finmin Refutes Claims Of Inflation Due To 7th Pay Commission Award

Finmin Refutes Claims Of Inflation Due To 7th Pay Commission Award

New Delhi: A salary hike is likely proposed by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries, which has been constituted to look into the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for cabinet nod, will not fuel inflation, says Finance Ministry top officials.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the Pay commission award increase government expenses by Rs 1.02 lakh crore but that would not be a problem. “The implementation of these recommendations will not affect inflation. The recommended pay scale has been hiked in line with the increasing size of the budget of government of India,” they told our reporter. The 13-member body of Empowered Committee of Secretaries, headed by the Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha, who is processing the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission decided to hand over soon its possible proposal to the the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for cabinet nod. It is likely to propose a substantial pay hike which could be up to 30 per cent or even more, said officials. the 7th Pay Commission had recommended a minimum monthly basic salary of Rs. 18,000 and maximum Rs. 2,50,000. A 30 percent increase would translate into minimum basic salary of Rs. 23,400 and maximum at Rs. 3,25,000, respectively.

However, The Empowered Committee is likely to purpose Rs 2,70,000 as highest basic pay and Rs 24,000 as the lowest, they also likely to recommend for doubling of existing rates of allowances and advances, the officials added. The government in its annual budget has provisioned Rs 70,000 crore to meet the demand for implementation of 7th Pay Commission for central government employees which will take effect from January 1, 2016, while the allowances would be paid from the date of implementation. “Central government employees could get the revised pay and allowances from their August salaries and arrears are to be paid ahead of festive season of Dussehra in one installment,” the officials confirmed. The Economists fear that the 30 percent salary hike would fuel inflation as the pay commission recommendations will also have a bearing on the salaries of the state government staff. So quite understandably, the government employees are happy as pay increase will enable them to increase their consumption and meet some of their unmet demand.

At the same time, there is a widespread fear that the pay commission recommendations are likely to increase inflation which will reduce the purchasing power of money. RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan earlier said the 7th Pay Commission recommendations will not upset fiscal maths as additional expenditures will be offset by either surplus revenues or expenditure cuts.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley earlier also said hat he was not worried about fiscal deficit on implementation of the pay commission’s recommendations. He said that the Pay commission award increase government expenses by Rs 1.02 lakh crore but that would not be a problem.

“The government has sufficient resources. Implementing the 7th Pay commission award will not affect inflation.” the official told our reporter. The officials said that apart from hiking pay, the government is also likely to propose some administrative reforms, to be implemented in phases.

 We are all happy that for the first Time in Indian history, a Retired Air marshal is considered as COORDINATOR  between Defence ministry and Three service.
This is decided by our Defence Minister . Our ESM community welcome this decision by our Defence Minister.

NEW DELHI:Breaking traditions, defence minister Manohar Parrikar has hired a retired IAF officer to coordinate between his ministry and the Services, which has always been a ticklish issue. Air Marshal (retd.) P P Reddy, who was heading the office of the Chief of Integrated Defence Staff till March, has been appointed as a consultant in Parrikar’s office.

 Reddy, an ex- fighter pilot, was handling the tri-services’ planning and acquisitions as chief of Integrated Defence Staff to the Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee. “The minister wanted to use Air Marshal Reddy’s expertise in resolving issues related to the tri-services. His duties include coordination between the ministry and the Services, and assisting the defence minister in having a better understanding of Services’ matters,” an official said.Usually, the defence minister has a private secretary, an IAS officer who looks after his engagements and meetings. Then there is an Officer on Special Duty, who explains files and communications to the minister. An official said bureaucrats don’t understand the requirements of the Services, which eventually reflect in the ministry’s decision-making “and creates resentment amongst the Services. An defence official will reduce friction between babus and defence personnel and will hasten decision-making”.
