NCCPA DELEGATION MET
PAY COMMISSION ON 28-04-2015
On behalf of NCCPA we met the 7th Pay Commission on 28th April, 2015. The delegation consisted of five representatives viz., Pavitra Ranjan Chakraborty (Offg SG NCCPA); K.Ragavendran (GS AIPRPA); Y.Nagabhushanum (AP State GS AIPRPA); M.N.Reddy (Telengana State GS CGPA); and Sudhakar (Kerala State GS CGPA). Many issues of pensioners including Parity in Pension, Medicare, Discrimination to Postal and Telecom Pensioners, Additional Pension formula etc were discussed. There was a patient hearing to our presentation and was assured that many of these pensioner related issues are definitely under consideration and depending on govt budget constraints recommendations will form. But discrimination to postal pensioner is definitely under review of 7th CPC.
Meanwhile, we hear many rumours in the internet about the recommendations of Pay Commission including proposed Pay Scales etc. When we interacting with the pay commission it was joked by the Joint Secretary of 7th CPC that people are flouting rumours about pay scales and other things in internet when even the Commission itself has not come to any final decision! AIPRPA CHQ cautions all our members not to give any credence to such rumours. Many of those rumours are only calculated guess by some netters like the one who recently flouted a duplicate DA order for 8%! Let us wait with patience as the CPC's allotted time expires on 31st August and the Commission may or may not seek extension of two months time.
