Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission



Cabinet clears 23.5% hike in pay for Central govt. staff

Government accepts recommendations of Seventh Pay Commission. Four panels formed to study concerns raised by employees

The BJP-led NDA government on Wednesday announced an overall increase of 23.5 per cent for over one crore government employees and pensioners in line with the Seventh Pay Commission’s recommendations, which left most services dissatisfied. The hikes will come with the August paychecks and be paid with effect from January 1, 2016. The arrears for the six months will be disbursed during the current financial year (2016-17) itself.
In November 2015, within the overall hike of 23.55-per cent, the pay panel had recommended increases of 16% in pay and 24 per cent in pensions. The starting salary for new recruits at the lowest level has been raised to Rs. 18,000 from Rs. 7,000 per month. Freshly recruited Class I officers will receive Rs. 56,100. This reflects a compression ratio of 1:3.12 signifying that the pay of a Class I officer on direct recruitment will be three times the pay of an entrant at the lowest level.

The approved maximum pay, drawn by the Cabinet Secretary, is Rs. 2.5 lakh per month (against the current Rs. 90,000), higher than the salaries drawn by MPs.
To examine the concerns employees have raised, the Union Cabinet decided to set up four committees: The first will look into the implementation issues anticipated and the second one will go into the likely anomalies. Another one will further examine the recommendations on allowances, which have largely been kept on hold. The fourth will suggest measures for streamlining the National Pension System.
Nod for new pay matrix
The Union Cabinet dispensed with the present system of pay bands and grade pay and okayed a new pay matrix as recommended by the Pay Commission.
Employee status, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the pay matrix. Separate pay matrices have been drawn up for civilians, defence personnel and for Military Nursing Service with all existing levels subsumed in the new structure; no new levels have been introduced nor has any level been dispensed with.
Gratuity ceiling raised
The gratuity ceiling stands enhanced from Rs. 10 lakh to 20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity will increase by 25 per cent whenever dearness allowance rises by 50 per cent.
The Cabinet also approved the recommendation of the commission to enhance the ceiling of house building advance from Rs. 7.5 lakh to Rs. 25 lakh. All but four interest-free advances have been abolished
“The fifth and sixth pay commissions had narrowed the gap between salaries paid in the private and government sectors…the seventh has moved further in the same direction. An IIM-Ahmedabad study has found that pay in the government sector is distinctly greater than that in the private sector so there can’t be protests from employees,” said Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Calculate New Salary using 7th Pay Commission Pay Scale Calculator

7th CPC was cleared today by Union Cabinet Ministers. To our utter disappointed it is implemented without any changes.
1. First multiply your current basic with
a) 2.57 if you are in the pay scale of 5200-20200
b) 2.62 if you are in the pay scale of 9300-34800
c) 2.67 if you are in the pay scale of 15600-39100
Now after multiplying your current basic(including grade pay) see this image below.

Now check your new basic as follows.

My basic is 11510. So if if multiply 11510 with 2.57( i'm in 5200-20200 pay scale with grade pay 2400) i will get 29580.07. Round it off to 29581. Now in the first image in pay band 5200-20200 and in grade pay 2400 column check where we find the next higher figure to 29581.

In my case the new basic will be 29600.

So that is my new basic. = 29600. Lets see my new gross salary.

New Basic = 29600
New DA ( as on 01.01.2016) = 0%
New HRA = 29600x24% = 7104 ( i live in hyderabad , so new hra will be 24%)
New TA = 3600+(3600*0%)=3600(For  Higher TPTA cities like mumbai, delhi, hyderabad etc ta will be 3600+DA and for other cities it will be 1800+DA. TA also depend on our new pay level See TA table below)

Cabinet approves Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission : PIB News

Cabinet approves Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission
The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) on pay and pensionary benefits.   It will come into effect from 01.01.2016.
In the past, the employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations at the time of 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of 6th CPC.  However, this time, 7th CPC recommendations are being implemented within 6 months from the due date.
The Cabinet has also decided that arrears of pay and pensionary benefits will be paid during the current financial year (2016-17) itself, unlike in the past when parts of arrears were paid in the next financial year. 
The recommendations will benefit over 1 crore employees. This includes over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.
1.            The present system of Pay Bands and Grade Pay has been dispensed with and a new Pay Matrix as recommended by the Commission has been approved. The status of the employee, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the Pay Matrix. Separate Pay Matrices have been drawn up for Civilians, Defence Personnel and for Military Nursing Service. The principle and rationale behind these matrices are the same.
2.            All existing levels have been subsumed in the new structure; no new levels have been introduced nor has any level been dispensed with. Index of Rationalisation has been approved for arriving at minimum pay in each Level of the Pay Matrix depending upon the increasing role, responsibility and accountability at each step in the hierarchy.
3.            The minimum pay has been increased from Rs.  7000 to 18000 p.m.  Starting salary of a newly recruited employee at lowest level will now be Rs.  18000 whereas for a freshly recruited Class I officer, it will be Rs.  56100.  This reflects a compression ratio of 1:3.12 signifying that pay of a Class I officer on direct recruitment will be three times the pay of an entrant at lowest level.
4.            For the purpose of revision of pay and pension, a fitment factor of 2.57 will be applied across all Levels in the Pay Matrices.
5.            Rate of increment has been retained at 3 %. This will benefit the employees in future on account of higher basic pay as the annual increments that they earn in future will be 2.57 times than at present.
6.            The Cabinet approved further improvements in the Defence Pay Matrix by enhancing Index of Rationalisation for Level 13A (Brigadier) and providing for additional stages in Level 12A (Lieutenant Colonel), 13 (Colonel) and 13A (Brigadier) in order to bring parity with Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) counterparts at the maximum of the respective Levels.
7.            Some other decisions impacting the employees including Defence & Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel include :
·               Gratuity ceiling enhanced from Rs.  10 to 20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity will increase by 25 % whenever DA rises by 50 %.
·               A common regime for payment of Ex-gratia lump sum compensation for civil and defence forces personnel payable to Next of Kin with the existing rates enhanced from Rs. 10-20 lakh to 25-45 lakh for different categories.
·               Rates of Military Service Pay revised from Rs.  1000, 2000, 4200 & 6000 to 3600, 5200, 10800 & 15500 respectively for various categories of Defence Forces personnel.
·               Terminal gratuity equivalent of 10.5 months of reckonable emoluments for Short Service Commissioned Officers who will be allowed to exit Armed Forces any time between 7 and 10 years of service.
·               Hospital Leave, Special Disability Leave and Sick Leave subsumed into a composite new Leave named ‘Work Related Illness and Injury Leave’ (WRIIL). Full pay and allowances will be granted to all employees during the entire period of hospitalization on account of WRIIL.
8.            The Cabinet also approved the recommendation of the Commission to enhance the ceiling of House Building Advance from Rs.  7.50 lakh to 25 lakh. In order to ensure that no hardship is caused to employees, four interest free advances namely Advances for Medical Treatment, TA on tour/transfer, TA for family of deceased employees and LTC have been retained. All other interest free advances have been abolished.
9.            The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.
10.        The general recommendations of the Commission on pension and related benefits have been approved by the Cabinet. Both the options recommended by the Commission as regards pension revision have been accepted subject to feasibility of their implementation. Revision of pension using the second option based on fitment factor of 2.57 shall be implemented immediately. A Committee is being constituted to address the implementation issues anticipated in the first formulation. The first formulation may be made applicable if its implementation is found feasible after examination by proposed Committee which is to submit its Report within 4 months.
11.        The Commission examined a total of 196 existing Allowances and, by way of rationalization, recommended abolition of 51 Allowances and subsuming of 37 Allowances. Given the significant changes in the existing provisions for Allowances which may have wide ranging implications, the Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances.  The Committee will complete its work in a time bound manner and submit its reports within a period of 4 months. Till a final decision, all existing Allowances will continue to be paid at the existing rates.
12.        The Cabinet also decided to constitute two separate Committees (i) to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of National Pension System (NPS) and (ii) to look into anomalies likely to arise out of implementation of the Commission’s Report.
13.        Apart from the pay, pension and other recommendations approved by the Cabinet, it was decided that the concerned Ministries may examine the issues that are administrative in nature, individual post/ cadre specific and issues in which the Commission has not been able to arrive at a consensus.
14.        As estimated by the 7th CPC, the additional financial impact on account of implementation of all its recommendations in 2016-17 will be Rs. 1,02,100 crore. There will be an additional implication of Rs. 12,133 crore on account of payments of arrears of pay and pension for two months of 2015-16.

कैबिनेट ने सातवें केंद्रीय वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों को लागू करने को मंजूरी दी

कैबिनेट ने सातवें केंद्रीय वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों को लागू करने को मंजूरी दी 
प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेन्द्र मोदी की अध्यक्षता में केंद्रीय मंत्रिमंडल ने वेतन और पेंशन लाभों पर सातवें केंद्रीय वेतन आयोग (सीपीसी) की सिफारिशों को लागू करने को अपनी मंजूरी दे दी है। इसे 1 जनवरी, 2016 से ही प्रभावी माना जाएगा। 

विगत में, कर्मचारियों को पांचवें सीपीसी के समय आयोग की सिफारिशों पर अमल के लिए 19 माह और छठे सीपीसी के समय आयोग की सिफारिशों पर अमल के लिए 32 माह इंतजार करना पड़ा था। हालांकि, इस बार सातवें सीपीसी की सिफारिशें नियत तिथि से छह माह के भीतर लागू की जा रही हैं। 
कैबिनेट ने यह भी निर्णय लिया है कि वेतन एवं पेंशन लाभों की बकाया राशि का भुगतान चालू वित्‍त वर्ष (2016-17) के दौरान ही कर दिया जाएगा, जबकि इससे पहले बकाया राशि के कुछ हिस्‍सों का भुगतान अगले वित्‍त वर्ष में किया जाता था। 
उपर्युक्‍त सिफारिशों से 1 करोड़ से भी ज्‍यादा कर्मचारी लाभान्वित होंगे। इनमें 47 लाख से ज्‍यादा केंद्रीय सरकारी कर्मचारी और 53 लाख पेंशनभोगी शामिल हैं, जिनमें से 14 लाख कर्मचारी और 18 लाख पेंशनभोगी रक्षा बलों से संबंधित हैं। 
खास बातें: 
1. पे बैंड एवं ग्रेड पे की वर्तमान प्रणाली समाप्‍त कर दी गई है और आयोग की सिफारिश के अनुरूप एक नई वेतन संरचना (पे मैट्रिक्‍स) को मंजूरी दी गई है। अब से कर्मचारी के दर्जे का निर्धारण पे मैट्रिक्स में उसके स्‍तर के आधार पर होगा, जबकि अभी तक ग्रेड पे के अनुसार इसका निर्धारण होता था। अलग-अलग वेतन संरचनाएं असैन्‍य (सिविलयन), रक्षा कार्मिकों और सैन्य नर्सिंग सेवा के लिए तैयार की गई हैं। इन संरचनाओं के पीछे सिद्धांत और तर्क एक समान हैं। 
2. सभी वर्तमान स्‍तरों को नये ढांचे में समाहित कर दिया गया है। कोई नया स्‍तर शुरू नहीं किया गया है और न ही किसी स्‍तर को हटाया गया है। वेतन संरचना के हर स्‍तर पर न्‍यूनतम वेतन तय करने के लिए सुव्यवस्थीकरण के सूचकांक को मंजूरी दी गई है, जो वरिष्ठता क्रम में हर कदम पर बढ़ती भूमिका, जिम्मेदारी और जवाबदेही पर निर्भर करता है।
3. न्‍यूनतम वेतन को 7000 रुपये से बढ़ाकर 18000 रुपये प्रति माह कर दिया गया है। न्‍यूनतम स्‍तर पर किसी भी नवनियुक्‍त कर्मचारी का शुरुआती वेतन अब 18000 रुपये होगा, जबकि नवनियुक्‍त क्‍लास I’ अधिकारी का शुरुआती वेतन 56100 रुपये होगा। यह 1:3.12 के संकुचन अनुपात को दर्शाता है, जिससे यह पता चलता है कि सीधी भर्ती वाले किसी भी क्‍लास I’ अधिकारी का वेतन न्‍यूनतम स्‍तर पर न‍वनियुक्‍त कर्मचारी के वेतन से तीन गुना अधिक होगा। 
4. वेतन एवं पेंशन में संशोधन के उद्देश्‍य से 2.57 का फिटमेंट फैक्‍टर वेतन संरचनाओं में शामिल सभी स्‍तरों पर लागू होगा। प्रचलित दर पर डीए को शामिल करने के बाद सभी सरकारी कर्मचारियों/पेंशनभोगियों के वेतन/पेंशन में 1 जनवरी, 2016 को कम से कम 14.29 प्रतिशत की बढ़त दर्ज हो जाएगी। 
5. वेतन वृद्धि की दर को 3 प्रतिशत पर बरकरार रखा गया है। उच्‍च मूल वेतन की बदौलत कर्मचारी भविष्‍य में लाभान्वित होंगे, क्‍योंकि भविष्‍य में उनके वेतन में जो वार्षिक वृद्धि होगी वह वर्तमान के मुकाबले 2.57 गुना ज्‍यादा होगी। 
6. कैबिनेट ने स्‍तर 13ए (ब्रिगेडियर) के लिए सुव्यवस्थीकरण सूचकांक में वृद्धि कर और स्‍तर 12ए (ले.कर्नल), 13 (कर्नल) और 13ए (ब्रिगेडियर) में अतिरिक्‍त स्‍तर (स्‍टेज) सुनिश्चित करके रक्षा संबंधी वेतन संरचना को और बेहतर कर दिया है, ताकि संबंधित स्तरों के अधिकतम पायदान पर संयुक्त सशस्त्र पुलिस बल (सीएपीएफ) के समकक्षों के साथ समता लाई जा सके।
7. रक्षा और संयुक्त सशस्त्र पुलिस बल (सीएपीएफ) कार्मिकों समेत विभिन्‍न कर्मचारियों पर असर डालने वाले कुछ अन्‍य निर्णय भी लिए गए हैं, जिनमें निम्‍नलिखित शामिल हैं। 
ग्रेच्‍युटी की सीमा 10 लाख रुपये से बढ़ाकर 20 लाख रुपये कर दी गई है। जब भी डीए 50 प्रतिशत बढ़ जाएगा तब ग्रेच्‍युटी की सीमा 25 प्रतिशत बढ़ जाएगी। 
असैन्‍य एवं रक्षा कार्मिकों के लिए अनुग्रह राशि एकमुश्त मुआवजे के भुगतान हेतु एक आम व्यवस्था की गई है, जो उनके परिजनों को देय होगा और इसके तहत वर्तमान दरों को विभिन्‍न श्रेणियों के लिए 10-20 लाख रुपये से बढ़ाकर 25-45 लाख रुपये कर दिया गया है। 
रक्षा बलों के कर्मियों की विभिन्न श्रेणियों के लिए सैन्य सेवा वेतन की दरें 1000, 2000, 4200 एवं 6000 रुपये से संशोधित करके क्रमश: 3600, 5200, 10800 एवं 15500 रुपये कर दी गई हैं। 
8. कैबिनेट ने आवास निर्माण से जुड़ी अग्रिम राशि को 7.50 लाख रुपये से बढ़ाकर 25 लाख रुपये करने संबंधी आयोग की सिफारिश को भी मंजूरी दे दी है। कर्मचारियों को कोई दिक्‍कत न हो, यह सुनिश्चित करने के लिए 4 ब्‍याज मुक्‍त अग्रिमों को बरकरार रखा गया है, जिनमें चिकित्सा इलाज के लिए अग्रिम, टूर/स्‍थानांतरण के लिए टीए, मृतक कर्मचारियों के परिवार के लिए टीए और एलटीसी शामिल हैं। अन्‍य सभी ब्‍याज मुक्‍त अग्रिमों को समाप्‍त कर दिया गया है। 
9. कैबिनेट ने केंद्र सरकार कर्मचारी समूह बीमा योजना (सीजीईजीआईएस) में किए जाने वाले मासिक अंशदान में भारी वृद्धि करने की सिफा‍रिश को भी न मानने का निर्णय लिया है, जैसी कि आयोग ने सिफारिश की थी। 
10. आयोग ने कुल मिलाकर 196 वर्तमान भत्‍तों पर गौर किया और इन्‍हें तर्कसंगत बनाने के उद्देश्‍य से 51 भत्‍तों को समाप्‍त करने और 37 भत्‍तों को समाहित करने की सिफारिश की है। 
11. सातवें सीपीसी द्वारा लगाए गए अनुमान के मुताबिक, वर्ष 2016-17 में इसकी सभी सिफारिशों पर अमल से अतिरिक्‍त वित्‍तीय बोझ 1,02,100 करोड़ रुपये का पड़ेगा। इसके अलावा वर्ष 2015-16 के दो महीनों के लिए वेतन एवं पेंशन से जुड़ी बकाया राशि के भुगतान हेतु 12,133 करोड़ रुपये का अतिरिक्‍त बोझ वहन करना पड़ेगा।
