The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Dear Comrades,

Sub: Feedback of the meeting held today with Secretary, DoP&T on Terms of Reference of VII CPC 

On the invitation of Secretary, DoP&T, today we met him at North Block, being led by Com. Umraomal Purohit, Secretary(Staff Side), National Council(JCM), where Jt. Secretary(Estt.), Ms Mamta Kundra was present along with the Director(JCA), Shri Ashok Kumar.

Corn. Purohit explained in detail about the background of the past Pay Commissions as he has been associated with the JCM as Secretary(Staff Side) since 1977. He said that the VI CPC though had many favourable recommendations, but it has also created many anomalies, particularly because of introduction of Pay Band and Grade Pay. Corn. Purohit further said that he had expected some draft on the Terms of Reference of the Seventh Central Pay Commission from the Official Side, it would facilitate better appreciation to react.
It was also explained that the VI CPC has been based on Secretarial Structure, and there no appreciation for professional and operational needs, faced by the departments, like Indian Railways, Defence production etc. Therefore, it was demanded that some professional experts should be used to appreciate the problems of the Railwaymen and others.
Nivas also demanded that, to have a true representative character, a labour representative should be included as member in the Commission.
Besides the undersigned, Com. Rakhal Das Gupta, Working President/AIRF and Corn. JR.Bhosale, Treasurer/AIRF, were present on the occasion.

The Staff Side also raised the following issues:-

  • Secretarial Structure – Pay Structure – Hierarchy of Industrial employees
  • GP 5400 and other facilities
  • Allowances
  • Provision should be made to appreciate problems of the Railways and other departments
  • Problems of the Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department
  • Cadre Restructuring in Defence Production
  • Parity between pre and post retirees
  • Removal of the anomalies
  • MACPS – GP Rs.2000, Stepping up of pay
  • Court cases in the matter of MACP
  • Pay fixation of the Promotees Vs Direct Recruits
  • Loco Pilots and other categories
Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

  • all pay commission common about one thing, that is all d.a. is merge in basic+40% rise on basic.
    40% rise on basic may be concern but emerging of d.a. no question about it

  • 6th CPC had removed the maximum pension for 33 years qualifying service and THOSE retired after 1-1-2006 with more than 33 years qualifying service ( q s ) got pension for their entire service.Those who retired prior to 1-1-2006 with 40 years q s rendered were given pension for 33 years service only.THUS they DENIED 7 YEARS SERVICE PENSION..To remove the anomaly government has to issue suitable orders to revise the pension of those who served 40 years q s on receipt of application from those pensioners.There may be very very few living pensioners in this category.Our UNION may kindly take up the matter with govt and arrange to issue suitable orders at an early date.
