Pay Comm. implementation soon

Over with the vote in Parliament, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday seems to have cleared the decks for the Union Cabinet to consider the recommendations of a Committee of Secretaries (COS) on the Sixth Pay Commission for Union government employees.

Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrashekhar made a presentation on the recommendations of the COS to Singh before the PM left for Gujarat.

It is learnt that the cabinet secretary has listed different alternatives on pay packages with indications on expected burden on pay on the government exchequer. To reduce the burden, the COS has recommended that the arrears to government servant be given from January 1, 2007 instead of 2006.

The government is reportedly keen to announce the new package before Independence Day.

    Lateral entry for the higher posts (including Joint Secretary & Secretary) in the Government/Government Organizations is suggested for improving the functioning of the Government.There are several Group C/Group B /lower grade Group A officials whose efficiency is even better than that of the Secretaries of Goverment.

  7. The Asian Age says that "The hopes of millions of Central government employees, including those from defence and paramilitary forces, for early implementation of their long-pending wage revision are likely to be dashed, as the government is set to refer the Sixth Pay Commission report to the 13th Finance Commission for evaluation and possible impact on the fiscal health of the country.

    Sources in the government confirmed that the pay commission report is going to be taken up by the Union Cabinet for consideration during its meeting on Thursday. But as the Cabinet notes suggest, the report is most likely to be referred to the 13th Finance Commission to asses the impact on government treasury, they added."

    Forget about pay commission, folks. Heard that FM is opposed to even moderate hikes in our salaries. Lets have no hope. Lets perish

  9. WHY SHOULD WE NEED PAY COMMISSION FOR EVERY 10 YEARS. THE GOVERNMENT THINKING ABOUT BURDEN ON PAY FOR EVERY 10 YEARS.(YOU MAY OBSERVE THE REVIEW COMMITTEE SUGGESTION FOR PAY HIKE FROM JAN 2007 INSTEAD OF 2006) THEN WHAT IS THE BENEFIT FOR THE EMPLOYEE. IF GOVERNMENT HIKES THE SALARY IN PARTICULAR MANNER (INCREASE THE SALARY IN A FIXED PERCENTAGE(LIKE 20% OR 30%%). THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO CONSTITUTE THE PAYCOMMISSION FOR EVERY 10 YEARS. ACTUALLY THE EMMPLOYEE DEPENDING ON EVERY 10 YEARS FOR THE HIKE OF PAY. NOW THE EMPLOYEE IS HAPPY FOR THE SALARY HIKE. AFTER THE 10 YEARS AUTOMATICALLY HE AGAIN DEPENDING OR THINKING FOR SALARY HIKE. WHEY WE DEPEND ON PAY COMMISSION? PLEASE THINK ONCE AGAIN......

    Is it a ploy for the demands of pay parities and increase in salaries from some quarters to shift to the date of implementation, which the govt. may use as a negotiation tool?

    Sixth Pay Commission referred to 13th Finance Commission
    The hopes of millions of Central government employees, including those from defence and paramilitary forces, for early implementation of their long-pending wage revision are likely to be dashed, as the government referred the Sixth Pay Commission report to the 13th Finance Commission for evaluation and possible impact on the fiscal health of the country.
    The Union Cabinet on Thursday gave its approval for expanding the terms of reference of the 13th Finance Commission to include reviewing of the roadmap for fiscal adjustment.

    Briefing the media on the outcome of the Cabinet decisions, minister for information and broadcasting Priya Ranjan Das Munshi said the need was to bring the liabilities of the Central government on account of subsidies given to oil, food and fertilisers bonds into fiscal accounting.

    The commission could also consider the impact of various other obligations of the Central government on the deficit targets, which includes government’s possible liability on account of implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission.

    The government may defer the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission award by a year or even two to reduce the fiscal burden of the recommendations that proposed a 28 per cent across-the-board salary increase for an estimated 4.5 million central government employees.
    The report of the commission headed by Justice BN Srikrishna was submitted to the government on March 24 this year, nearly a fortnight before its 18-month tenure was to end.
    Senior government sources said that the government's current fiscal position may well see the arrear payments deferred to January 1, 2008, two years later than originally recommended. However, a relaxation may be granted to employees who have retired in the interim period.
    Lower-level government staff in central government service, which comprises a large part of the employee base, may also get some relaxation, although it is not clear what it will be.
    The panel had recommended implementing the revised pay scales from January 1, 2006. The new pay scales, if implemented as originally recommended, would have cost the exchequer Rs 7,975 crore (Rs 79.75 billion) in fiscal 2008-09. However, the one-time additional outgo on account of the retrospective revision of salaries is estimated to be at Rs 18,060 crore (Rs 180.60 billion). The arrears were to be given in instalments, which would have lessened the fiscal burden.
    Before the report was submitted, finance ministry officials had said the impact of the recommendations would be within 0.4 per cent of Gross Domestic Product in 2008-09. Other experts have said the impact would not exceed 0.5 per cent of GDP, unlike the previous fifth Pay Commission award when the impact was much higher.
    In Budget 2008-09, the finance ministry has estimated the fiscal deficit at 2.5 per cent of GDP, which is in line with the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act, 2003. This included headroom for the likely impact of the Pay Commission award. However, subsequent developments have led to the fear that the Centre's fiscal position may have taken a beating during the year on account of the farm loan relief package and higher crude oil prices leading to an increase in the subsidy burden.
    In fact, risk rating agency Moody's today forecast a deterioration of central government finances and pointed out that the central government's true borrowing need - which equals the reported fiscal deficit plus off-Budget borrowing - could reach 10 per cent of GDP, up from 8 per cent projected earlier this fiscal if global crude oil prices average $110/120 a barrel in 2008-09 and domestic retail fuel prices are not raised further.
    Soon after the report was published, the defence services had opposed its recommendations on the grounds that it gave short-shrift to their demands. The matter was referred to a committee of secretaries. It is believed that the issue has been discussed and a final proposal may be put up for Cabinet consideration, officials said.
    They added that a final decision could be taken as early as next month, well before six states head for elections to their legislatures. Of these, the Congress-ruled Delhi is crucial, being home to a large percentage of the country's central government employees

    Sixth CPC has very cleverly prepared its recommendations, which are leaning 100% towards IAS babus, leaving all others high & dry. The relative seniority as per current DOPT orders is reckoned by max of the scale, higher being senior. 6th CPC has cleverly made it based on Grade Pay, and GP of IAS being higher than the others in same/similar posts, even a junior IAS will always be senior to an officer of any other Gp-A Service, no matter for how long that officer is holding the post. Hurrah......
