Five year Wage revision policy for Central Government Employees – Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers. Karnataka Branch
Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, Karnataka Branch, raises a valid question to the effect that why the pay of Central Government Employees should not be revised every five years similar wage policies of PSU Employees and Bank Employees, which gets revised every five years.
It is the Pay Commission, that ensures that a Government Employee gets a hike in pay at least once in ten years. Also, Pay Commissions attempts to sort out Inter cadre pay differences so that Cadres that are functionally different are equal in status
A top ranked employee in the private sector enjoys the benefit of increased income in the post liberalisation period. For the Government, annual increase in increment is just 3%, add DA 5%, that makes the annual revision of 8%, which definitely isn’t enough and lags far behind when compared with private sector.
The 7th Pay Commission is in the final stage and is expected to be tabled by 31st December 2015. Sources point out, the Centre is planning to implement the seventh pay commission’s recommendations from January, 2016.
Delay in 7th Pay Commission report submission – Confederation, Karnataka State is of the view that interim report of 7th CPC to be submitted and that DA merger from 2014 and Interim Relief have to be granted
