Sub: Setting up of a high level committee to review the Minimum Wage Multiplication FactorMinimum Wage Multiplication Factor,

Ref: Our letter of even No. dated 26.7.2016.

Dear Sir,

We solicit your kind reference to the discussion, the representatives of NJCA had with you in the presence of the Honourable Home Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh and the Railway Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhu and the MOS (R) Shri Manoj Sinha on 30th  June, 2016.
We were expecting a quick action on the part of the Government to operationalise the assurance of setting up a high level Committee 10 go into the Minimum wage, Multiplication factor etc. However, we are disappointed that even after a lapse of more than a month no order has been issued by the Government in this regard.
The employees, as you are aware, were angry over the arbitrary determination of the minimum wage by the 7th CPC by mutilating the Dr. Aykhroyd formula and also the proportionate multiplication factor.
We, therefore, appeal to you that the concerned authorities may be asked to expedite the issuance of orders setting up the committee and finalization of the  Report within the available time of remaining three months.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

    This govt. is fixated with Fiscal deficit number of 3.5%. It is in no mood to change the fitment. I am surprised it doesn't fear the loss of electoral capital. 2-3 crores votes are going to be affected. Last time BJP got 17 crore votes. This 2-3 crore will bring BJP crashing down to below 150 seats in Lok Sabha. Is the govt listening?

    Now we need to hardened our approach. Enough time has been waisted by the government. It is also clear that govt is least bothered about the working class. Pay commission has also been the worst enough. So instead of talking again and again it would be better to show our real colour, let us hold a massive indefinite strike as earlier was proposed by NJCA and repeat the same condition like what happened during 5th CPC. It is time to show the govt the power of common man, specially the authoritarian attitude of govt need to be crushed…Jai hind.
