  1. 2000/- for bottom staff and 40000/- for very very poor staff, shame full , I do not understand when our political leaders will think about the poorer. India and our leaders will never look the bottom staff, let the politicians and secretaries understand that they r surviving because of the lower grade staff.

  2. As per Pay Matrix approved in the 7th Pay Commission, there is wide gap between erstwhile PB3 & PB4 Pay Bands. The following statement will speak for itself the wide gap between these two Pay Band Posts entry Level Pay from 1-1-2016:
    Pay Band 15600-39100: – (PB3) Group-A
    i)G.P. 5400/- Entry Pay .. 56,100
    ii)G.P.6600/- .. .. 67,700
    iii)G.P.7600 .. .. 78,800

    Pay Band 37,400-67,000 – (PB4)
    i)G.P.8700/- Entry Pay .. 1,18,500
    ii)G.P.8900/- .. .. 1,31,000
    iii)G.P.10000/- .. .. 1,44,200

    If we look at the entry pay of PB3 under (iii) category entry Pay is fixed at 78,800/- and the entry pay of PB under (i) is at Rs.1,18,000/- If a person in erstwhile PB3 under (iii) & PB4 under (i), the difference in Entry Pay will be about Rs.40,000/- This anomaly should be rectified from 1-1-2006 by Matrix formula and the entry pay of Pay Band 3 (Group-A Services) should be revised accordingly from 1-1-2016.

    The picture of fair salary would be incomplete without taking length of service in a category/post contribution of his similarly placed fellow colleagues (generalists in Administration other than Scientists) at next level of hierarchy into account and their fitment table should also be increased proportionately to a fair level . After all it’s a team management/work disparity, skills, individual and collective performance and adequate internal communication and collective bargaining on salary issues. When many are paid very lesser pay & perks, they have a tendency to work with heart-burning. The Redressal Committee on 7th Pay Panel must consider this suggestion to revise the gap proportionately / uniformly to all categories of posts in (Group-A Services) PB3 & PB4 Pay Bands from 1-1-2006 by applying Matrix formula and revised Entry Pay to these categories of posts should be approved from 1-1-2016 proportionately.

    (The following statement as per Fitment Table reveal the wide gap between PB3 & PB4 from 1-1-2006 itself as approved in VI Pay Commission
    Rs. 15,200 (S-19) ————– Rs.34,880 + increased GP
    Rs. 15,000 (S-20) ————– Rs.35,550 + increased GP
    Rs. 15,100 (S-24) ————– Rs.47,230 + increased GP
    Rs. 15,100 (S-25) ————– Rs.48,390 + increased GP
    Rs. 15,200 (S-28) ————– Rs.48,530 + increased GP
    If you look at the above statement for a pre-revised basic pay in the pay range of Rs.15,000/- there is wide difference in the revised pay fitment. The gap should be reduced drastically from 1-1-2006 based on length of service one put in a category etc. In many cases. Senior Officers put in more than 30 years of Service getting less emoluments/Pension when compared to many junior Officers after implementation of Sixth Pay Panel Report from 1-1-2006. The suggestion to Govt. is that length of Service in a category coupled with duties & responsibilities should be given its due weight-age to relieve heart-burning among Senior Officers of Non-IAS cadre and similarly placed Officers in other Ministries. In many cases the increase in emoluments ranging about more than 100% to 300% in PB 3 & PB 4 posts. Due weight age should be given to PB 3 category (Group-A) with effect from 1-1-2006 by applying Matrix formula)

  3. HOW NJAC SATISFIED, AFTER ALL PAY REVISION CAME ONLY AFTER 10 YEARS UNLIKE BANKS AND LIC. WHAT A SAD STORY. IT IS VERY SAD 4 MONTHS OF LONG ROPE IS GIVEN TO GOVT FOR FITMENT INSTEAD OF ON THE SPOT SETTLEMENT. I HOPE NJAC IS PLAYING SOME TRICKS FOR THE REASONS UNKNOWN. WHEN MORE THAN 90% OF THE EMPLOYEES ARE READY FOR THE STRIKE, WHY THE LEADERS ARE AFRAID OF. TOTAL BLAME RESTS ON NJAC AND NOT ON GOVT. IT IS A GREAT SHAME. AT LEAST NOW NJAC IS REQUEST TO OPEN THEIR EYES.

  4. The worst CPC. None of the committees, allowances, anomalies or NPS appointed so far. Worst, there is not even a mention of high level committee on pay matrix & fitment table to give any pay benefit beyond the paltry 14.2%. The FM didn’t even agree to the 30% hike recommended by empowered committee headed by Cabinet Secretary. FM told the Parliament on 17.7.2016 that further hike in pay is not under consideration! HRA is totally lost for another 6 months. NJAC doesn’t still act against any of the above issues. No meeting, no decision! If itcdoesn’t act boldly even at this worst stage, it won’t do anything at any stage. It is time it acted – boldly and decisively to make FM hear the staffs’ voce and pay heed to the demands. At NJAC should hear the voice first which it doesn’t seem to. God knows why not. Does it represent the staff or the govt?

  5. I am retired jco from Indian army reemployed in postal dept, inspite of repeated requests and reminders postal dept is not fixing our last pay drawn quoting your pay fixed as entry pay which is applicable to new entrant. Banks lic and other deots are fixing their employees pays on the same ruling. In case it is not applicable to postal govt employees , then why govt issuing such ruling blindly without ensuring its implementation. Please clarify the same in 7th pay commission.
    _

  6. Either PM or FM does not deserve any grateful thanks as greeted above by Mr Ashok Mehta. They failed in their pious duty of satisfying the Govt servants who are toiling under the burden of rising inflation. After dilly dallying for 8 months they have issued a lack luster gazette notification without any improvement over CPC recommendations. They appointed another committee to give another report on allowances. This is only to gain time before rejection of demands. Only alternative is indefinite STRIKE.
