FINANCE MINISTER ANNOUNCES GOVERNMENT DECISION TO CONSTITUTE SEVENTH CENTRAL
Today the Honourable Finance Minister Shri.P.Chidambaram has announced that the Central Government has decided to constitute the 7th CPC for CG Employees.
He also said the date of effect will be from 1.1.2016 and that the terms of references will be finalised after discussions with the Staff Side.
We welcome the Government decision to constitute 7th Pay Commission. We also welcome the decision that the terms of references will be finalised after consultations with the Staff Side.
We on behalf of the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association express that the Government also should come forward to include the items of Pensioners in the terms of reference and that there should be an opportunity for the Pensioners Organizations to express their opinions on this before finalisation of the terms of references.
We the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association also feels disappointed that while the Government has come forward to accept the demand of the CG Employees Organisations has kept silent on the vital issue of merger of 50% DA with the Basic Pay for the serving the Government Employees and with the Basic Pension for the Pensioners. This demand is very important in the background of the escalating prices of all essential commodities and the real value of pension and pay have got reduced very much.
We request the Government to come forward to take a positive decision on the issue of merger of DA / DR as the case may be and also request all organisations of CG Employees and the Pensioners to raise their voice strongly demanding the merger of DA immediately.
