Minutes of the meeting held on 24.10.2013 at 3.00 PM to discuss the possible.  Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission with the representatives of the Staff Side of JCM

 A meeting was’ held on ‘ 24.10.20i3 at 3.00-PM in Committee Room No 190, North Block under the chairmanship of Dr S K Sarkar, Secretary DOP&T to discuss the possible Terms of Reference (ToR) for the 7th Central Pay Commission, which is going to set up by the Government, with the representatives of the staff side of JCM. List of Participants to this meeting is at Annexure-I

At the outset, Secretary (P) welcomed the Staff side representatives and thanked them’ for attending this meeting on a short notice. He indicated that since this meeting has been convened to discuss the -possible Terms of Reference (ToR) for the 7th Central Pay Commission, he hoped that the discussions would remain so focussed.
Sh Umraomal Purohit, Secretary, Staff Side, in his opening remarks stated that it would have been preferable that there was a proposal from the official side on this issue to the Staff Side and then the same could have been discussed further in a meeting where the Finance Secretary could also be invited. He then pointed out that the new concept of Pay Bands and Grade Pay structure as per the 6th CPC, which changed the pay structure in Government, had resulted in a new experience which was mixed.
He stated that though the 6th CPC did not recommend merger of ‘DA with Pay, they could not have anticipated such a high rate of inflation which resulted in such . high rate of DA; the rate of Dearness Allowance presently was 90% and due to high inflation there was a need to consider merger of a part of DA with Pay. He also raised the question of Interim Relief pending finalisation of CPC recommendations.
M.Raghavaiah, while thanking the Chairman raised the issue of anomalous situations which had arisen due to the new concept of Pay Bands and Grade Pay structure as per the 6th CPC. He suggested that the Finance Ministry should look into this aspect as . to how anomalies cropped up due to this and how these can be avoided in future. He was also of the view that the anomalies cases which stand referred to the Ministry of Finance need to be cleared.
He also referred to anomalies relating to MACP scheme vis a vis ACP scheme and resolution pending thereon. He also demanded that there should be merger of DA with Pay as was agreed to in 2004·
The other representatives from Staff Side raised the following Issues
1) Entry level pay to promotee employees at par with that admissible to Direct Recruits as was agreed in the National Anomaly Committee;
2) One of the ToR should be to set up a special bilateral mechanism to sort out anomalies arising out of Pay Commission recommendations;
3) Professional approach should be adopted in dealing with peculiarities concernIng Railways and Defence civilian employees;
4) There should be parity between pre & Post CPC retirees for the purpose of pension etc.;
5) Cadre review/restructuring proposals should be delinked from the 7th CPC so that these are not delayed;
6) Wage Revision should be ‘effective after every 5 years as in the case of PSUs;
7) If there is going to be separate CPC for the Armed Forces as had been reported in media, then there should be a representative of Labour in the 7th CPC;
8) CPC should not go by “Central Secretariat” structure to make its recommendations which does not take into account specific complexities in large Government organisations like Railways, Postal Department and Defence establishments.
9) Allowances should be enhanced , concurrently with the pay consequent upon Pay commission implementation.
In his concluding remarks, the Chairman thanked the participants for their views and requested the Staff Side that they may send their suggestions in writing also.
