Black Day in Bangalore as an opposition against the unjustified recommendations of the 7th commission.
The 7th pay commission is like a misery that every central government employee has to live with. The 7th pay commission has not only thrown its adverse effects on the central government employees but also on the armed forces personnel and other services. More than 2 crore government employees are impacted by the recommendations of the 7th pay commission.
According to the government the 7th pay commission is made for the benefit of all the central government employees. But due to the loss that the employees feel it has caused, November 27 will be imposed as a Black Day in Bangalore as an opposition against the unjustified recommendations of the 7th commission.
They will fight for their demands and submit a memorandum to the central government. This memorandum will have their demands stating that the recommendations of the7th pay commission should not be implemented as they would have an adverse effect on them.
When asked to M K Ravindran Pillai, Vice President, All India Defence Employees’ Federation about his take on the 7th pay commission, he said that all the government employees would be helpless and would have no other option after the implementation of the recommendations.
They can just fight for their demands and be agitated if the government does the injustice and does not negotiate for their benefits. He further added that the 7th pay commission is just a boon and a talk of the town but holds no good for the benefit of the central government employees as its recommendations are not at all in favor of them.
It is a completely false publicized initiative by the government. In the 5th and the 6th Pay commission the increment in the pay scales of the central government employees was 40 percent whereas in the 7th Pay commission the increment is only 14.2 percent, this has really devastated the complete situation.
Moreover, many other benefits have also been withdrawn in the 7th pay commission. Further, while computation of the new salary only the basic salary is considered as the base and DA is not a part of it. Only the basic salary of the employee will be multiplied by the factor of 14.2 to attain the new appraised figure.
This makes the employees not at all benefitted by the recommendations of the 7th Pay commission and there is also an adverse effect on the minimum wage due to the 7th Pay commission and hence all the employees need to fight for rectification of the minimum wage as it has to be set according the 15th Indian Labor Conference norms and Supreme court orders. Moreover, the 7th pay commission has also abandoned the various perks and allowances the central government like risk allowance, small family allowance, festival advance, motor cycle advance.
