7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC.
A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

As per this current DA calculator.6th pay DA would be 7% and7th pay DA is 2% from July on-wards.Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike.7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor.

For example…
If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400.So as per DA calculator,  7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400 .      2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay  will be 1028.So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration.In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended.Suppose if  we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400.And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to  3.5…!!!If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years.SOURCE-Central Government Employees News

Labour ministry puts 

minimum

wage hike proposal on hold


NEW DELHI: The
 labour ministry has put on hold a proposal to increase minimum wagesfor all by up to 25% for the time being because of a fall in both global and domestic demand that impacted 
Indianmanufacturers.
An official said the time is not ripe to enhance wages and make it binding on all states as this would raise the input cost for manufacturers and make them uncompetitive.

A senior labour ministry official told ET that the time is not ripe to enhance wages and make it binding on all states as this would raise the input cost for manufacturers and make them uncompetitive.

"We are holding back the increase in minimum wages for a while now and may reconsider this at a later stage when demand picks up so that the additional burden incurred by manufacturers through higher wages is compensated by increase in order inflow," the official said on condition of anonymity.

The central government is projecting lowercost of labour in India vis-a-vis China, where wages are on the rise, as a major attraction for manufacturers to set up shops in the country along with its focus on the ease of doing business.

"This kind of substantial hike in labour wages will go against the government's approach to 'Make in India' and could impact investment decisions as of now," an industry expert said, requesting not to be identified.

As part of its proposal to enhance minimum wages, conceived by labour ministry last year, all states and union territories were grouped into three categories based on per capita income and minimum wages for the unskilled, semiskilled and skilled workers in each of the provinces.

Based on the formula arrived at, states like Goa, Delhi, Sikkim, Chandigarh, Pondicherry and Maharashtra, with highest per capita income in the country, would be in the first category where minimum wage for the unskilled would be in the range of Rs 8,000-9,000 per month.

For states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Manipur, Assam and Jharkhand, with least per capita income, the minimum wage could be around Rs 6,000 a month, a hike of 25% based on recently raised National Floor Level Minimum Wage.

Going by this, minimum wages would range betweenRs 9,000 and Rs 12,000 for semiskilled and skilled workers in poor states & between Rs 12,000 and Rs 16,000 in rich states.

Trade union leaders said higher wages are essential. "Naturally, employers' side will be hurt by increase in wage cost, but this is essential as wages in India are the lowest and unless the worker is compensated well he would not be motivated to deliver to his best ability," said DL Sachdeva of the All India Trade Union Congress.

The National Floor Level Minimum Wage was revised last year to Rs 160 a day from Rs 137. This ranslated into a monthly salary of Rs 4,800 for an unskilled worker, but is not mandatory for states to follow.

The government has decided to pay its employees arrears arising from the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in cash with the August salaries.
The government has already notified the 2.57-time hike in basic salary of the about 10 million government employees and pensioners as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The pay hike has been made effective from January 1, 2016.
The finance ministry said the revised pay structure will include dearness allowance of 125% provided in the pre-revised pay structure. The rate of the first instalment of DA under revised pay will be announced later.
“The arrears as accruing on account of revised pay consequent upon fixation of pay under CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 with effect from January 1, 2016, shall be paid in cash in one instalment along with the payment of salary for the month of August, 2016, after making necessary adjustment on account of GPF and NPS, as applicable, in view of the revised pay,” a finance ministry statement said.
In order to expedite disbursal of arrears, the instruction said the “arrear claims may be paid without pre-check of the fixation of pay in the revised scales of pay”.
However, it added, the facilities to disburse arrears without pre-check of fixation of pay will not be available for those public servants who have retired, resigned or dismissed after the date of implementation of the Pay Commission recommendations.
The minimum pay in central government with effect from January 1, 2016 will now be Rs 18,000 per month, up from Rs 7,000. At the highest level of cabinet secretary, the salary would go up from Rs 90,000 a month to Rs 2.5 lakh.
There shall be two dates for grant of increment — January 1 and July 1 every year — instead of the existing July 1 only.
The instruction further said income tax would be deducted before the payment of arrears.
