No merger of D.A. or hike in retirement age discussed in cabinet

It was learnt from the sources close to the Union Government that the proposals of Enhancement of Retirement age of Central Government Employees from 60 to 62 years and Merger of D.A to basic pay may not be materialized now before General elections. Accordingly, these two proposals have not been taken up for consideration by the union Cabinet in its meeting held on friday. But there is possibility to announce Interim Relief (I.R) before elections.

Government wuold have earned a lot of Good Will of its employees by increasing the retirement age to 62, particularly when the parliament panel has suggested the increase to 65

If doctors,MPs and so many others are fit to continue their job even when they are 70+,why do the ministers think that teachers suddenly become OLD at 60?It is a great pool of vast experience that goes wasted.The govt should definitely give it a serious thought and raise the retirement age of the
teachers.

Not raising the Retirement Age will be tantamount to digging its own grave by the UPA II.

GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE MAIN DEMANDS OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OFFICERS & EMPLOYEES.

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT.GAZETTED OFFICERS ORGANISATION(CCGGOO) CALLS
UPON THE ENTIRE CG OFFICERS & EMPLOYEES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ARBITRARY AND UNILATERAL DECISION OF THE GOVERNMENT.
The Government has not decided to grant Interim Relief and merger of
Dearness allowance. Nor has it asked the Commission to consider and make appropriate recommendation in this regard specifically. Inclusion of a
labour representative in the Commission being not an idea the UPA Government cherishes, for it is diametrically opposite to its economic policies and ideology, they have stuck to the position of sandwiching the Honourable Judge with bureaucrats. Our demands for parity between the past
and present pensioners and scrapping of the new pension scheme also stand
rejected.
The 6th CPC (and the earlier Commissions also)had refused to entertain the demand for removal of anomaliesdespite Government referring the same to the Commission
specifically. Therefore, the omnibus clause in the terms of
reference requiring the Commission to submit interim reports may
not be of any help to us to raise the anomalies before the 7th
CPC.
At the conclusion of the meeting held by Secretary, DoPT, with the staff side on terms of reference of the 7th CPC, it was agreed that the Government will consider our suggestion in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out
the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter. But no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the official side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference.

CCGGOO CONDEMNS THE ATTITUDE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN NOT HONOURING ITS COMMITMENT OF HOLDING DISCUSSION WITH THE STAFF SIDE BEFORE FINALISING THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF THE 7TH CPC AND DEMAND IMMEDIATE ACCEPTANCE OF :
(1)Interim Relief
(2)Merger of DA
(3)Date of effect from 1/1/2011
(4)Parity in pension entitlement between the past and present pensioners.
(5)Coverage of the existing defined benefit pension scheme to employees
recruited on or after 1.1.2004.
(6)Include a representative of the Labour in the 7th Central Pay Commission.
(7)Settle the anomalies

Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers’
Organisations (CCGGOO) is disappointed to note that our
demand for five years wage revision w.e.f. 01.01.2011 and
merger of DA with Pay has not been considered favourably by
the Government. When the public sector employees are given
five years wage revision and the erosion in real wages has
reached an all time high due to steep price rise, grant of
five year wage revision to Central Government officers,employees and pensioners is fully justified. Similarly every time the Government appointed pay commission, merger of DA
was also granted. This time Government has not acceded the
demand for merger of DA with pay Even the demand for inclusion of a labour representative in the 7th CPC was disregarded. Thus by appointing pay commission without
declaring interim relief, employees will not be getting any
financial benefit now.
The methodology adopted for compensating the erosion in the
real value of wages had been the merger of DA with Pay. The 5th
CPC had recommended that the DA must be merged with pay and
treated as pay for computing all allowances as and when the
percentage of Dearness compensation exceeds 50%. Accordingly even before the setting up of the 6th CPC the DA to the extent of 50% was merged with pay. Presently, the Dearness
compensation is 100% as on 1.1.2014.

As on 1.1.2011, the DA was at the rate of 50%.The suggestion for merger of DA to partially compensate the erosion in the real wages was first mooted by the Gadgil Committee in the post
2nd Pay Commission period. The 3rd CPC had recommended such
merger when the Cost of Living index crossed over 272 points
i.e.72 points over and above the base index adopted for the pay
revision. In other words, the recommendation of the 3rd CPC was
to merge the DA when it crossed 36%.

The Govt. in the National Council JCM at the time of negotiation initially agreed to merge 60% DA and later the whole of the DA before the 4th CPC was set up. The 5th CPC merged 98% of the DA with pay. It is, therefore, necessary that the Govt. takes steps to merge 50% of DA with pay for all purposes to compensate the
erosion of the real value of wages of Central Govt. Gazetted
Officers and employees.

CCGGOO urge upon the Government to declare interim relief, merge 50% Dearness Allowance with pay for all purposes and revise
wages w.ef 01/01/2011 failing which the Confederation shall be
constrained to go for agitational programmes.
