Congress is planning to Protest if DA and Basic pay is not merged
Congress is planning to protest the ruling government. Congress people want the government to merge DA with the basic pay. They want these changes to be done in the upcoming 7th pay commission for central government employees. This will add an extra burden to the ruling government.
In relation to the 7th grade pay commission, Ajay Makan who is the current president of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee said, with the new 7th pay commission, employees with higher grade will get most of the benefits but employees with middle and low grade pay won’t be getting much benefit. He said this while address the two meetings which were held at Sadiq Nagar and R.K Puram.
Further he added that congress party do each and everything so that employees get the best benefits. This is the reason why he is working towards the merging of DA with Basic Pay.
Good deal is very important in order to engage the employees and the people with good minds gets attracted towards Government Services. Government is need of the people who are well educated and can give tough competition to the professionals. These days are through globalization MNC’s are not pushing their way to add such clauses because it would be harmful for the interest of nation and the people living in it, said by Mr. Maken.
He also said that the new 7th pay commission is against the benefit of middle level employees because there won’t be an increase of 14.5% in the wages of employees working for central government. In case of lower level employees it would be lower than 14%. But the current government is claiming an hike of 24% in wages for all central government employees.
He also said that the section officers which consist of UDC’s and PA’s will result in downgrading as per the pay panel recommendations. In the 5th and 6th pay commission there was an hike of 40%. It’s really very shocking that 52 types of allowances which employees were getting in 5th and 6th pay commission were removed in 7th pay commission recommendations. The removal of allowances includes Transport allowances which were there in merged state with DA.
So in short, 7th pay commission won’t bring much benefit for the central government employees. These were the words of Mr. Maken in related to the protest they are going to do if DA is not merged with Basic Pay.
