7th Pay Commission – NFIR Ultimatum to Jaitely – Railways minister Suresh Prabhu has requested Union finance minister Arun Jaitley for a financial assistance of about Rs 32,000 crore to absorb impact of 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
Railways minister Suresh Prabhu has requested Union finance minister Arun Jaitley for a financial assistance of about Rs 32,000 crore to absorb impact of 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
“I would therefore earnestly request you to help the ministry of Railways and hand-hold it for implementation of 7th CPC recommendations,” Prabhu said in a letter addressed recently to Jaitley. “This may be done either through compensation of loss for coaching services (Rs 31,727 crore in 2013-14) or directly by virtue of a revenue grant matching the amount of the 7th CPC’s liability placed upon the Railways for the next three to four years.”
Western railways employees union General Secretary Mr. Mahurkar said in a press conference in Nagad, if the recommendations of the railway minister Mr. Prabhu are not met or not accepted, the rails will come to a crashing halt on July 11.
He added that about 1.5 lakhs of RPF jobs are vacant.
He further reiterated, the security forces of railways work 24 hours, they should be paid accordingly, based on their commitment, which is not happening, he said.
Railway Minister Mr. Prabhu has conveyed the grievances of railway staff to the finance minister Mr. Jaitley, however it looks like he is in no mood to listen the plight of the railway staffs. so the employees are forced to take further devastative action, he added.
In the 6th CPC the increase in the wages was 54% but the 7th pay commission has recommended only 14.3% increase. Its a crime against employees, he added.
Mahurkar also objected to the implementation of new pension scheme for the employees from April 1 2014.
He added, on 9th June we will issue a notice for strike, if our demands are not met, from 11th July the railway employees will go on indefinite strike.
