Govt. denies consideration of 7th CPC

In a reply of question regarding 7th CPC, Minister of State for Finance Sri N.N.

Cabinet approved central D.A. @8% from January 2013

Finally it is time to rejoice for central staff and pensioners. The cabinet gives nod to the much awaited hike.

Media report hints Central D.A. hike today

Flash News : Central D.A. approved by cabinet
The Union Cabinet is likely to approve a proposal to increase dearness allowance (DA) of central government employees by 8% on Thursday.
The move to increase D.A. from 72% to 80% will benefit around 50 lakh employees and 30 lakh pensioners of the central government.
"The Union Cabinet may consider the finance ministry proposal to increase DA in its meeting scheduled for Thursday," a source said, adding the hike would be effective from January 1, 2013 and employees and pensioners would be entitled to arrears.
The government had raised DA to 72% in September last year, which had come into effect from July 1, 2012.
As per usual practice, DA is merged with basic pay when it breaches the 50% cap. This helps employees get higher allowances as those are paid as proportion of the basic pay.

Bank bipartite likely to be finalized by the year end, new pay structure may be introduced

Govt banks may switch from gross salary to CTC for pay hike
IBA is likely to ask for about 25% hike for over 8,00,000 bank employees in the 10th bipartite agreement on wage revision. The hike is due from November, 2012. Though wage settlement negotiations usually go on for about two years as bank unions begin with exorbitantly high expectations, this time the government may settle it by the end of 2013 in the view of general elections in 2014.
As employees of state-owned banks bargain hard for a steep hike in wages, the finance ministry has asked Indian Banks' Association (IBA) to consider moving towards a cost-to-company (CTC) structure in the next pay settlement to reflect their actual remuneration including all perks and incentives.  

Additional burden on banks due to the ninth wage agreement carried out in 2009 was Rs 4,816 crore for a 17.5% wage hike and Rs 5,000 crore for pension. The hike was effective from November 2007.

Central D.A. from Jan'13 : Still no news !!

Flash News : Cabinet approved Central D.A.
Update : Announcement today (18.04.13) ?
Most surprisingly, there is still no news on cabinet approval or announcement of D.A. payable to Central Govt. employees and pensioners even on the third week of April. F.M. is again on foreign tour and even if any cabinet meting takes place tomorrow, the chances of approval of D.A. stands remote in the absence of Finance Minister. Earlier on 2nd April the decision was deferred due to the same reason. F.M. will return from his foreign trip on 22nd of this month and only after that the staff may find reason to cheer. As everybody knows that D.A. from January 2013 is due @8% and probably this is the first time in the last 25 years the employees will get four months arrears this time instead of three as per common practice.
