Interesting comments on 7th Pay Commission by our Readers
Submitted on 2015/11/23 at 10:38 pm
Dear fellow countrymen,
Recommendations of 7th CPC have come as a big disappointment for all serving and retired armed forces personnel, least expected from the present government.
There is hardly any rise in pay as the merging of DA, including merging and discontinuing of the allowances in pay will lead to more tax liabilities thereby nullifying the increase unless the tax slabs are drastically revised which again is highly unlikely.
Recommendation of taking away the rations from peace stations displays the usual indifferent thought process of civilian counterparts towards the forces. Mind you, the same civilians flock themselves in railway stations with goodies when the nation is threatened. How can we have such double standards…..?
Does this imply that, Armed forces in peace stations will henceforth not be asked to respond to internal emergencies and calamities, as they will be presumed to be training and enjoying peace tenure with families and that the Home Ministry is very capable of handling such emergencies with their capable forces and government machinery.
Or is it implying that, henceforth, when the Armed forces are requisitioned, then rather than plunging themselves into action as is their ethos, now they must first apply for enabling themselves to draw rations in peace station and put the system of drawing of rations in place, feed themselves and then respond to the central and state authorities…..because Armies do not march on empty stomach.
Granting of OROP to civilian counterparts at parity with Armed forces has made a mockery of the manner in which this matter has been handled. Everyone here seems to be missing the point that a soldier retires at 35 years of age and the officers cadre of armed forces face a much steeper hierarchical pyramid with limited few making it to higher ranks and very few make it to the Apex cadre unlike their civilian counterparts. Majority of the officers retire at 52 years of age. The old system of 70% of pay as pension must be made applicable for Armed forces and revert back the civilian counterparts to 30% of pay as pension as they serve till 58/60 years of age.
Disability pension is a moral determining factor not for those soldiers who are disabled due to exigencies of service conditions but for those soldiers who know that when they do what has to be done, very well knowing that it will cause disability. Disability pension, its attributability to service conditions, its use or misuse must be left to the Armed forces, as such sensitive issues hurt where it hurts most. Recommendations of the 6th pay commission on the subject must continue as it allows increase in disability pension automatically.
Tax free pay to Armed forces personnel will be a great morale booster.
Armed forces are the pillars of our nation, they are our guardians securing us from threats from land, air and water. It is our duty to keep their morale high as they keep the Tricolour flying at full mast come what may. By giving them the stature they deserve in society we only ensure our bjustifyer tomorrow. And let us never forget that a soldier is a soldier is a soldier.

7th CPC have submitted report to Govt of India. Media reported a BONANZA for central Govt employees and pensioner, Economists shown their concern about fiscal deficit, private employees see it as Malai, marketing companies described it a boon for slow market. I also felt ACHHE DIN AANE VALE HAI , and started calculation to know whether a MAKAAN(house) or a SUV can I purchase.
Salary slip of a group B employee is/will be as under:-
Basic Pay 17140 44900
DA@125% 21425 000
TPT+Da 3600 3600
HRA 000 000
GROSS PAY 42165 48500
GPF/NPS 3857 4490
CGEIS 60 2500
I. Tax 1256 1909
L. Fee 200 600
CGHS 325 975
TOTAL 5698 10474
NET Pay 36467 38026
VII CPC 1559
Finally I come to know – makaan aur SUV kya ek cycle bhee nahin aa saktee. Yah bhee pata chala ki hamare desh me achhe din kyun nahin aa rahe. Actually, we have poor Economists, a sensational and irresponsible media, innocent people and “10 saal k baad 4.275% net increase paakar itni aalochana sunane vala” bechara central Govt employee
Forward this as much as possible.

Demands of Ministerial staffs like LDCs and UDCs seems to be genuine as they are not only responsible for smooth functioning of offices but they play key role in disposal of files also. They initiate the files, give their valuable suggestions/proposals which ensure smooth functioning of offices. In the present official system, all of them do their various types of work on computer with the help of MS office which includes word, excel, Access etc. In any office, rate of disposal of work is directly related to the motivation level of these staffs. In the one side, commission has tried to recommend outcome/performance based remuneration and other side commission could not even tried to consider the nature of responsibilities rendered to these staffs… As far as entry level is concerned, LDCs selected through staff selection commission had been selected after three layer of scrutiny/test i.e. preliminary examination, Mains and Typing test. like all other group A or B services.. Even for making e-office concept a ground reality, the roll the these staffs are going to be very crucial… In my opinion, Govt. should re think and consider the genuine demand to these staffs.

Sir, I have joined in 2007 as LDC and I have been drawing B.P. of Rs. 7930+ G.P. 1900. My T.A. at present is Rs. 1600/- slab since I crossed Rs. 7440/- basic pay. But due to 7th CPC, my T.A. slab will go down to Rs. 1350/- slab since my level is fixed at 2 for G.P.1900/- and the basic pay has not been considered. By this I am loosing Rs. 2220/- p.m.
Consider my issue also.

The scrapping of small family norms increment is not justified with the reasons putforth by Commission. This requires re-consideration under social security angle since the population control has taken a beating in the implementation stage. The revival of SFN/FPA should be continued at a lumpsum amount for all the cadres.

I have been working as a Postal Assistant in the Department of Posts (GP 2400) for the last 5 years. My present pay is Rs.11510 ( 9910 – 10210 – 10520 – 10840 – 11170 – 11510 )
As per the pay matrix of the 7th CPC, my new pay as on 01.01.2016 would be Rs.29600 ( 11510*2.57=29581, next stage in the pay matrix is Rs.29600 ).
But the present pay of Postal Assistants having 4 years of service is Rs.11170.As per the pay matrix, their new pay would also become 29600 as on 01.01.2016 ( 11170*2.57= 28707, , next stage in the pay matrix is Rs.29600 ).
That is the new pay of Postal Assistants having 5 years of service and 4 years of service as on 01.01.2016 would be the same, ie Rs. 29600.
The same anomaly is existed for pay bands 1800, 1900& 2000 GP employees also.Hence please make strong protection against this injustice.
