Some Doubts and Clarifications on Pay Fixation (7th cpc revised Pay) :

Let   Mr. X  drawing Rs. 16010 (G.P 2800) got  promotion (up gradation)  under MACP Scheme( Rs.4200)  on 08.04.2016 ?  Shall he opt to continue in  Old scales up to MACP date ?

Ans.  Govt. servant  to  opt to continue his old scale up to (1)  until   the  date on which he earns next increment /  any subsequent increment  (ii)  until he vacates his post (iii) ceases to draw pay in that scale.

  In the above case  Mr. X. cannot  take  option to continue in old scales up to  08.04.2016 i.e  on  MACP up gradation. His pay will be fixed as on 01.01.2016 and MACP  fixed on 08.04.2016 (or DNI as per  his option) .  The pay fixation is as calculated.

Pay as on 01.01.2016  :   13210 + 2800 (g.p) = 16010 
Old pay
NEW  - 7thCPC

(16010) + 1400 (diff
Opted to fix pay after accrual of increment on 01.07.2016

16490 + 500  ( added promotion incrt)  + Diff 1400= 18390 *
(Promoted to the G.Pay for Rs. 4200)
 42800 (inct)
44100 (promotion inct)
44900 ( Level 6 in Pay Matrix G.p 4200)
MACP - Pay fixation

Note: But straight away pay fixation on 01.07.2016 by multiplying 18390 * 2.57 = 47262 by fixing at  47600 (in 4200 pay matrix) is not possible. i.e. Option to continue in old scale up to MACP up gradation and then fixation to new 7cpc pay is not applicable.
NOTE:  Let  Mr.  X -  got promotion to IPO  (inspector Posts- 4200  (now is  4600) for case study  taken as 4200.) through  LDCE on 08.04.2016. In this  case by taking  all  above data  he will opt  (after accrual of inct) to fix straight away by multiplying 2.57 * 18390 = 47262 to fix at 47600 . And he will continue to draw old scale up to 08.04.2016. (He forego  arrears). This provision comes under “until he vacates his post (PA)” he will opt to draw old pay.

Filing up of Assets and Liabilities last date extended to 31st December 2016

7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC.

A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA
As per this current DA calculator.6th pay DA would be 7% and7th pay DA is 2% from July on-wards.Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike.7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor.
For example…
If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400.So as per DA calculator,  7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400 .      2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay  will be 1028.So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration.In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended.Suppose if  we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400.And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to  3.5…!!!If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years.

We solicit your kind attention towards the discussion we had with your goodself on 30.06.2016, wherein Hon’ble Finance Minister, Shri Arun Jaitley, Hon’ble Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, and Hon’ble Minister of State for Railways, Shri Manoj Sinha, were also present.

In the background of issuance of the Notification by the Government of India today (26.07.2016) to give effect to the recommendations of the 7th CPC as per 29th June, 2016 Cabinet decision, we request you to expedite action for setting up the proposed “High Level Committee” to review Minimum Wage and Fitment Multiplication Factor as was promised in the 30th June, 2016 meeting, which paved way for deferment of “Indefinite strike” which was commenced to be held from 11th July 2016.

We shall be grateful, if necessary orders are issued for setting up the said committee without further delay.

With Kind Regards!
