Two Years Bonus For Central Government Employee

Two Years Bonus For Central Government Employee 

The minimum wage of the Non-Farm workers will be increased by the Central Government of India. The minimum wage of the non-farm workers was Rs 246 per day earlier and it will be increased to Rs 350 per day.

Reason behind Minimum Wage Increase

The reason behind increasing the minimum wage of Non-Farm workers is the continuous threat given by the Trade Unions. The Trade Unions recently threatened about going on a strike on 2nd September, 2016. But the government has tried to appease the Trade Unions by declaring the hike in minimum wage on 30th August, 2016.

The government also announced that the workers will get the bonus for the last two financial years as per revised regulations. This recent increase will affect the bonus of the workers of financial year 2014-15 and 2015-16. The central government amended the bonus and they have urged that this Bonus Amendment Act will be effected very strictly.

The Indian Government also assured that they would take necessary steps for resolving pending cases on payment of bonus in the courts. It is likely that the Non-Farm workers will collectively get a bonus amount of Rs 1,920 crore yearly.

Vital events behind Minimum wage increase

In the recent years, the inter-ministerial group of India had several important meetings with Central Trade Unions. The Trade Unions placed their demands in the recent meetings and mainly the demands were about labor related and other economic policy related. Actually, the Central Government got to know about the demands and made decisions according to the demands.

The decision of reviewing and increasing the wages was taken after several discussions at the meeting of the Minimum Wage Advisory Board. The labor minister of India was also involved in the meeting.

The states will be strictly advised to register contract worker and their staffing agencies. It will be mandatory for the states to implement this procedure. If any contractor conducts any inappropriate act, they will have to face appropriate action for their violation.

Several sectors such as Anganwadi, Mid-Day Meal and Asha, etc. will be given social security benefits by the Indian Government. The issues of giving social security benefits will be handled by a committee.

Government Plans for appeasing with Trade Unions

The government is also planning to merge associate banks of SBI bank with the parent bank. But the government assured that this merging will not be objected by the Trade Unions because the government thinks that the service condition of the employees will not be affected by it.

Overall 10 central trade unions called for a one day strike on India on Septeber 2, 2016 and thus the government was forced to increase the minimum pay of the non-farm workers. This will obviously affect the strike call according to the Government.

After the full implementations of the new 7th pay commission, there will be a huge financial burden on the centre.

Centre admits employees not happy with minimum pay recommended Pay Commission

The central govt. has admitted that the employees who work under them are not happy with the proposed minimum pay as per the 7th pay commission. According to the employees working in different departments of the central government, the minimum pay that was set to be 18 thousand in the pay commission released in the November month of 2015 is not sufficient enough and is very low compared to other pay scales. Most employees who have shown their sadness with the pay commission decision belong to low levels i.e. D grades and they are demanding a hike in the minimum salary of a central government employee from the implementation of the next pay scale.

Centre admits employees not happy with minimum pay recommended Pay Commission

Initial decision of the 7th pay commission regarding the highest and lowest salary 

In the report drafted by the pay commission working committee, it was decided that after the new pay commission gets implemented, the minimum salary that a central government employee or an employee working under any Govt. undertaking public organization will be Rs. 18, 000 per month. And the maximum salary that will be given by the govt. will be Rs. 2.5 lakh pr month, to the ranks of cabinet secretariats, auditor generals and defense chiefs. Earlier in the previous pay commission, i.e. the 6th pay commission, the minimum salary was Rs. 6,600 per month.

Why the Govt. is under pressure of increasing the minimum salary?

The central government is under huge pressure of hiking the minimum salary of the central govt. employees which was initially decided to be Rs. 18,000 per month. First of all, the trade unions, labor organizations and the employees associations of the various departments have shown dissatisfaction regarding the minimum salary in the 7th pay commission. Another pressure is the upcoming elections in various states and the central government does not want to lose votes on this issue. So there is a talk going on to have a balanced minimum salary.

 What is the current status regarding the increase of the minimum salary?

Currently, the negotiators from the finance ministry are holding discussions and meetings with the trade organization leaders and forming a committee to come to a point and fix a new minimum salary for the employees. The demand of the employees’ unions for the minimum salary range from Rs. 24,000 to Rs. 26, 000 per month. However, the centre is keen in coming to a compromise and has not yet come to a fixed solution. Reports are there that that the centre will settle down for nearly Rs. 20, 000 a month as the minimum salary.

Problems that may arise due to hike in the minimum salary

As per economists, there is already a financial burden coming in the way of the central govt. after the new pay commission gets implemented. An extra financial burden of Rs. 1.02 lakh crore is already going to happen. If the minimum salary slab is raised further, it will be very difficult for the centre.

According to sources, the minimum salary of a central govt. employee after the 7th pay commission gets implemented will be Rs. 18,000. The maximum salary will rise up to Rs. 2.5 lakh for the Cabinet Secretaries, which currently stands at nearly Rs. 90,000. The employees are supposed to get 23.55 % hike in basic salary and allowances and there will be sharp increase of 24% in pensions also. The overall rise in net salary is calculated to be about 16% for the current serving employees. However the old yearly increment rate is kept at 3% per annum. To give away these new pay structures, sources indicate the financial burden will be about Rs. 1.02 lakh crore. This amount will be borne by both Central Budget and Railway Budget- Rs. 73,650 crore and Rs. 28,450 crore respectively.

With new salary structures and pension improvements, the 7th pay commission also brought several other reforms. In response to the movement by defense personals for One Rank One Pension, the commission decided to bring parity between the pensions of the defense personals retired earlier to the pensions of the current retiring personals. The allowances in defense services like the Military Service Pay (MSP), Siachen special allowance, etc are hiked sharply.

According to Rakesh Arora who is the Managing Director of Macquarie India, the new 7th pay commission will get implemented by mid 2016 only. These implementations must not get delayed further. As the financial impact due to this new pay structures will be very large in margin, the govt. is trying its level best to implement it efficiently without any rush. An extra total of Rs. 1.02 lakh crore financial impacts are calculated to happen after its implementations, so it will be wise for the govt. not to go in one shot and do it in stages. According to sources the govt. will still try to keep the fiscal deficit below 3.5 % of GDP, which is currently 3.9 %. The new pay commission announced that the salary hike will get started from January 2016 where as other allowances will get implemented later that will decrease some burden. This strategy will help the govt. to make the implementations efficiently and to keep the fiscal deficit under control.
