50% DA Merger, Retirement Age News, Curtailment in Encashment of EL days news goes viral in Social Media

Order for Merger of 50% DA, Retirement age news goes viral in Social Media
Recently rumour will went overdrive in social media with the following news that

1. Central government decided to Merge 50% DA with basic pay with effect from 1.1.2015 and order will be issued within 15 days

2. Encashment of Earned Leave to be curtailed to 180days instead of existing 300 days.

3. It went on to say that age of Retirement will be on completion of 33 Years of service or at the age of 58 Years whichever is earlier

According to the Social Media , the above strong decisions were taken in last three meeting of cabinet committee to recommend 7th pay commission. Further the post published in social media warned the central government employees that if above decisions are implemented; they should not expect more from 7th Pay Commission. Since it is considered to be the indication of what the think tank of central government will do for its employees.
We enquired about this rumour with one of the Member to the National council JCM, who recently met the 7th Pay Commission. According to him, the central government has firm on its decision not to accept the Merger of DA with Pay, since the due date of the 7th Pay Commission to submit its recommendation is nearing and the central government in many occasions cleared that the recommendation of 7th pay commission will be implemented from 1.1.2016. So there is no question of issuing order for merger of 50% DA with effect from 1.1.2015.
Further he clarified that the present government wanted to use the man-hours of central government employees productively by introducing new systems like bio metric attendance etc. Hence curtailing EL Encashment will lead the central government employees to take more leave if it is not allowed for encashment. So there is no need to implement such proposal as government point of view is against taking leave by Govt officials.
There is mixed response from the sources whether the retirement age of central government employees will be revised or not. It is believed that the present government is in favour of reducing retirement age to 58. But at the same time government doesn’t want loose resources of knowledge gained through experience by reducing retirement age of Government employees. Since the work culture of government service is deteriorating day by day due to various factors , govt would like to retain the experience of the senior Government officials . Anubhav is the one of the initiative introduced by the central government to improve the work culture of youngsters in government service. So there will not be any change in retirement age of central government employees at present.

    will maternity leave on 01.01.2016 affects 7th pay commission’s arrears?

  • It may be stated here that if the accumulation and encasement of leave is curtailed to 180 days instead of 300 days at the time of retirement. The experienced official will avail leave abruptly and there will be less work culture official in the office and office will hamper badly. Since the work culture of government service is deteriorating day by day due to various factors , govt should like to retain the experience of the senior Government officials.The government should to improve the work culture of youngsters in government service.More over now a days women employees over coming days by days in any office organization, and there are more leave facilities are extended to women official like child care leave for 730 days, maternity leave, provided normal leave like earned and other kind of leave etc and the work culture and work efficiency of women employees in real sense are very worsen for effective office functions. There is universal laws that equal pay for equal work but in this there is in equal work for equal pay existing in the office. Hence govt may reviews the leave etc.
