Cabinet Agrees to Give 4 Months Extension to
7th Pay Commission
Ref.No: nfaee/sg/15161 27.08.2015
Following the request from the 7th Central Pay Commission, the cabinet has given an additional four months’ grace time, according to a government release.
The 7th Pay Commission was constituted on 28.02.2014 by the Government of India. The 18 months’ time given to the Commission ends today.
Earlier the Pay Commission source claimed that almost all the work has been completed and the compilation work shall be completed within a month time and the report may be submitted to the Government by 20th September 2015.
Suddenly the Commission has stated that there is excess of pending workload to prepare final report and that they want to intensive consultation with stakeholders. Hence, the cabinet gave a nod to extend the time until December for the Commission to carry out its work.
In the meantime there was report that Chairman 7th CPC met the Prime Minister. Similarly Finance Minister and Defence Minister also had interaction with Prime Minister.
Also there was a statement by the Finance Minister that during the Parliament Session reviewing the Interim Budget that the report of 7th Pay Commission may put the Indian Economy in Risk.
If reading all these together genuinely can doubt that some hidden agenda may be behind the last 48 hours high drama ended with cabinet decision to extend the tenure of the Pay Commission to 4 months.
As a result of this new development, the Commission will submit its report in January 2016.
What would be the political agenda behind the sudden changes in the attitude of the Pay Commission?
The reply to such intervention should be given by showing the unity and making the Nationwide strike on 2nd September 2015 a grand success.
With fraternal Greetings
