Submission of 7th Pay Commission Report to Central Government – Karnataka coc


7th CPC report submission date.


Comrades,

There are lot of enquiries about the 7th CPC report submission. Let us examine the following facts.

1) The 7th CPC had issued following statement in July 2015 in its website http://7cpc.india.gov.in/ . Even today the same status is existing.



“Further to the memoranda received from a variety of Organisations, Federations, Groups representing civil employees in the Government of India as also from the Defence Services, the Commission has had fruitful and wide ranging discussions on relevant issues with all stakeholders. Such interactions have now been concluded. Valuable inputs have been received and the work of compilation and finalization of the report is underway, so that the Commission completes its task in the time frame given to it. Accordingly, any future requests for meeting with the Commission will not be entertained.”



This shows clearly that the 7th CPC wanted to present its report on 28th August 2015 itself with no extension of time.

2) On August 7, 2015 National Council (Staff Side) Secretary Comrade Shiva Gopal Mishraji met the Chairman, Seventh Central Pay Commission, Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur and Secretary, Mrs. Meena Agarwal. It was assumed that the report of the VII CPC, as was promised for 28th August this year, may be delayed by one month.

This shows that the 7th CPC was delayed only one month.

3) Many news papers including Danik Bhaskar, Times of India, NDTV CNN IBN, Hindu etc had reported that the 7th CPC will be submitting its report on 30th September 2015 itself.

4) The 7th CPC chairman had informed in a PTI interview Justice Ashok Kumar Mathurji had stated that “The Commission will submit its report by the end of September,”

5) The Hon’able Finance Minister had also informed the 7th CPC report will be submitted shortly.

6) The 7th Pay Commission has asked for a two month extension from the government. That the Commission is hoping that the government would take a call on One Rank One Pension, so they could modulate their own formulation in terms of pay revision. Now the one rank one pension issue has been resolved, but the formal orders are not issued, it will be issued only next month. After the issue of the ORBP orders then 7th Pay Commission will submit its report.

7) Now four month extension of term of 7th Central Pay Commission is made the Union Cabinet chaired by the Hon’able Prime Minister, gave its approval for the extension of the term of the 7th Central Pay Commission by four months up to 31.12.2015. The Government had issued notification on 8th September “The Commission will make its recommendations by 31st December, 2015. It may consider, if necessary, sending reports on any of the matters as and when the recommendations are finalized.”

8) Now the delay in submission of report and its implementation will be there and actual benefit of 7th CPC will occur only from April 2016. As Government will constitute its own committee to study the implementation of the 7th CPC report and issuing orders. It will benefit the Government as allowances effective date may be from April 2016 instead of January 2016.

9) When will the 7th CPC submit its report? There are three possibilities now on submission date.


  • If the 7th CPC feels that the assigned work has been completed it can submit its report any time, it’s only up to the 7th CPC and the Central Government. If the 7th CPC report is completed and ready for release as per paper reports then in these case the 7th CPC can directly submit its report to the Finance Ministry on 30th September without publishing the report in public due to Bihar elections. If election commission gives clearance then the 7th CPC report will be made public.
  •  There is one more possibility is that the 7th CPC report will be submitted after Bihar elections ie after November 6th.
  •  Last option is that report will be submitted only in December 2015 only.
We sincerely hope the 7th CPC report will be submitted at the earliest and the Central Government will implement the report at the earliest, so that the aspiration of the Central Government employees are taken care by the Central Government.

Comradely yours

Concerns of false news about 7th pay commission recommendation

Concerns of false news about 7th pay commission recommendation


“….The Central Government employees are fed up with the false news items that keep coming about 7th Pay Commission which are published in Dailies and blogs and in Social Media recently. Baseless Predictions, groundless assumptions, imaginary calculators, truth less articles and to this extreme… Dubious Projects are also being published about 7th Pay commission recommendation

What is the reason behind these false report keep coming in News Media and Blogs? What is the intention which prompt them to publish these rubbish articles regarding 7th pay commission in their websites?

The intention behind publishing these article is not to give the correct information to central government employees but promoting their websites using the trending news and key words. Among central government employees the attracting word now is 7th pay commission, 7th pay commission pay scale and date of submission of 7th pay commission report.

Recently the articles which have been published in some leading news websites showed their lack of knowledge in the matters of service condition of central government employees and 7th pay commission.

The main focus of these articles are attracting people to their website and to increase the ranking in search results. Merely promoting their websites in search results, they started publishing articles which has no value and bearing misleading facts. The same old story repeated in every articles published

Recently many articles, which are published in websites about the recommendation of 7th pay commission, are nothing more than gimmicks. One article posted in a blog says ….

7th pay commission recommendatios for …

> Children education Allowance will be Rs.40 to 50
> Allowance for disabled children will be Rs.100/-
> Hostel Subsidy will be Rs.300/-



This News went viral in Social Media and surprisingly many websites posted this information without knowing that it was recommended by Fifth Pay Commission.



Another Example is, in a leading website the story mentioned below was published

“There will be 5 to 6% performance-based increment every year and those who are under-performing could retire by 55 years of age or after 30 years of service, added sources. House Rent Allowance could also be hiked by 10% to 30%”



It seems that those who wrote these articles didn’t know not even the existing rates of allowances paid to central government employees, but they try to impress the central government employees by their prediction about the Pay scales and Allowances of 7th pay commission going to be recommended in future.

It is the readers’ responsibility to identify these websites and to keep themselves aware of it.
