7th Pay Commission: No further hike for Central govt employees as of now
Patience has been trusted enough…And it seems the Central government employees can no longer keep their hope alive by just sitting on chairs and so they have reportedly planned to hit the streets.
A resolution has been passed for the same by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) which directed all affiliates to hold mass rallies and demonstrations against the Modi government’s failure in coming up with a decision to meet their demands of hike, abolition of National Pension System (NPS) and other, says a reports of Oneindia.com.
“Other pending issues related to railway employees may also be highlighted during protest actions. Affiliates may take note that September 2018 should be treated as PROTEST MONTH by organising different forms of protest actions at all levels i.e. Depots, Establishments, Workshops, Major Stations etc.”
“All India Protest Day” should be observed on 19th September 2018 and on the said date the affiliates should mobilise employees in large number along with those of Central Government Employees Organisations and hold massive rallies/demonstrations,” the resolution reads.
The Central government employees are presently getting a minimum pay of Rs 18,000. They are demanding a hike of Rs 8000- Rs 26,000- an increase in the fitment factor by 3.68 times from the existing 2.57 times.
Moreover, several economic and political issues seem to pose be hindrance before the Narendra Modi-government announcing the further increase in the minimum of the Central government employees as of now.
The fall in value of rupee against the US dollar and its ramification are likely to take a toll on the Centre in taking such a decision as it will further put burden on the government exchequer.
Besides, the reports of early elections in India in wake of the present political scenario of simultaneous elections, the Modi government may postpone any decision in this regard.
