7th Central Pay Commission and its submission to the Government…
The pay packages of Central government employees are expected to increase at least two times as of now.
Dearness Allowance in January and July 2015 will be crucial for 7th Pay Commission.
7th Central Pay Commission is likely to submit its report by the end of this year and it is also expected that the government will implement this report without any delay, because the central government would not be interested to pay any arrears to government employees. In the 7th CPC’s report, employees are eagerly expecting merger of dearness allowance, increase in other allowances such as house rent, children’s education allowance etc.
Dearness allowance at this point stands at 107% and two more installments are yet to be announced. One installment is already due with effect from January 2015 and the other is due on1st July 2015. DA is calculated on the basis of All India Consumer Price Index. With the data and statistics available as on date , it is likely that there would be an increase of 6% and the total will increase to 113%. If this trend continues, another 5 % increase in the DA from July 2015 is expected. Therefore 7th CPC will have to take this 118% DA into account before making a final report.
Central Pay Commission is an autonomous body constituted by the Central Government to analyse and recommend to the government, revision in the pay packages of the Central Government Employees. Usually the government constitutes the commission in every ten years. Till date Central Government has constituted Seven Pay Commissions. First CPC was notified in the year 1946, the second CPC in 1957, the Third CPC in 1970, Fourth in 1983, Fifth in 1994 and Sixth in 2006. The Seventh Pay Commission was announced in February 2014.
The 6th CPC was implemented with effect from 01.01.2006 and it proposed many new recommendations such as children education allowance, transport allowance and complete modification of pay structure from the old pay commissions. It also proposed increases in allowances by 25% when the DA increases. Let us hope for the best recommendations which the 7th CPC is going to submit to the central government which, as information gathered, will probably in October 2015.
