Minimum wage & Pay fixation formula for 7th CPC worked out
Providing proper minimum wage of Rs 27000/- for CG Employees including that of GDS employees and pay fixation formula for 7th CPC worked out .
The food requirement was to be 2,700 calories, 65 grams of protein and around 45-60 grams of fat as recommended by Dr Wallace Aykroyd for an average Indian adult of moderate activity. Dr Aykroyd pointed out that animal proteins, such as milk, eggs, fish, liver and meat, are biologically more efficient than vegetable proteins and suggested that they should form at least one-fifth of the total protein.
Minimum Salary-Analysis &Recommendations para 2.2.15
The Sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended a minimum wage of Rs 6600/- per month against the demand of Rs 10,000/- per month as worked out by Staff side of JCM. Today the minimum need based wage works out to Rs 21,000/ per month+ HRA+ allowances. The general minimum expenses per month for a family of four members are as follows when a Government servant joins the duty with two small children:
The expenses will increase as the age of Government servant goes up and family responsibility will increase as he has to educate the children in professional courses, marriage of his children has to be performed, his medical expenses will increase, his parents will stay with him and now there are quite dependant on the Government servant for their lively hood. As such the salary should be more to meet his expenses. The Government is a model employer hence the wages should be provided with the needs.

Notes PCU = Per day Consumption Unit 3CU = Three Consumption Units that is wife, husband and a child no parents or second child is taken into account.
* 20% Miscellaneous charges towards fuel, electricity, water etc.
** Additional Expense at the rate of 25% includes expenditure towards education, Medical treatment, housing, recreation, festivals etc.
# Has been taken as Rs.400 because separate allowances for education, medical Treatment and housing exist in the Government. Consequently, only the expenditure
Towards recreation & festivals need to be taken in account.
^ Being the license fee chargeable for government accommodation at an average rate of 3% of the basic pay.
Total minimum wage is Rs 17225+ HRA Rs 7000/- + Transportation Allowance Rs 2500/-= Rs 26725 that is Rs 27,000/-.
The fixation of minimum basic pay of Rs 21000/- is taking into the account of minimum skill and education requirement as 10th Standard as prescribed by the 6th CPC. As the education requirement is more such as Diploma in Engineering or Degree in Science or Commerce, then the minimum basic pay should be Rs 40,000/- (8700+4200) X 3 = Rs 39,000/-. For Engineering Graduates and Master Degree it should be Rs 65,000/- .
The pay scales should start with a minimum basic pay including Grade Pay of Rs 21,000/- to end with 2, 10,000 with a ratio of 1:10 of minimum scale and maximum scale. Since government is a model employer they should provide minimum wages as per the 15 ILO conference and other wages as per the educational qualification & skill requirement of the job.
The multiplying factor is calculated as below:
The existing basic pay + Grade pay + DA 100% + weightage of 100% ( that is the difference between the actual price rise and the DA paid) that is the multiplying factor works out to three.
Note: The actual price rise is over 200% the DA is only 90%.
The existing basic pay + grade pay+ DA 100%+DA merger = Net wage + weightage of 70% (that is the difference between the actual price rise and the DA paid).
The pay scales should have a multiplying factor of three, that means the existing pay scales and pay (basic pay + GP) should be multiplied by three. The pay scales arrived should not have any bunching of basic pay as done in the 5th CPC. The time scales should last for more than 10 years so that there is no stagnation.
The concept of fair wages has been deprived to CG Employees. Usually pay commissions had adopted a multiplying factor of 3.2 to 3.8 to arrive at the new scales compared to earlier scales. But the VI CPC adopted conversion factor of about 2.6 at the lowest where as it was about 3.6 at the highest scale. By this method well established ration 1:12 between the lowest scale and highest scale was disturbed by the VI CPC.
The minimum pay & band pay fixed by the 6th compared all other pay commissions for example a new recruit for the post of LDC his pay is Rs 5200+ 1900 = Rs 7100/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 3050 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 11000/- .
In case of a Graduate or Diploma holder as per 6th + 4200= Rs 13500/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 5000 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 18000/- .
In case of a Master degree holder as per 6th 4800= Rs 14100/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 6500 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 23000/- .
Hence the justification of multiplying factor of three is justified. The ratio between the lowest and highest scales should not more than 1:10

The existing basic pay should be multiplied by factor three, so that there is no bunching of basic pay. The existing GP of Rs 2000/- and Rs 2800/- should be removed. Likewise there are GP of Rs 5400/- in both PB-2 and PB-3 one of them is to be removed.
There are 34 scales recommended by the 6th CPC, out of which four Grade Pay has been not in existence, as such 30 GP are right now available.
With the merger of pay scale from S9 to S12 into Grade Pay of Rs 4200/-
There are many pay scales which was merged into single GP of Rs 4200/- which has created anomalies, the promotions have been made in same grade pay without financial benefits.
There should be time scale rather than grade pay system, these time scales should long enough.
