PROJECTED PAY STRUCTURE AFTER 7TH PAY COMMISSION
(BASED ON COMPARATIVE RISE FROM 1ST TO 6TH CPC)Demand for setting of Seventh Pay Commission is being raised since January 2011 on completion of 5 years
since the date of effect of the sixth Pay Commission - as recommended by the last 2 Pay commissions.
Till now six pay commissions had been constituted since 1946 - to review and recommend pay structure of central government employees.
All the six pay commissions have taken many aspects into consideration to prescribe the pay structure for government servants.
In the first pay commission the concept of ‘living wage’ was adopted.
In second pay commission it had been reiterated that the pay structure and working condition to be crafted in a way so as to ensure the effective functioning of government mechanism.
The third pay commission adopted the concept of ‘need based wage’
The Fourth CPC had recommended the government to constitute permanent machinery to undertake periodical review of pay and allowances of Central Government employees, but which got never implemented.
In Fifth pay commission all federations demanded that the pay scale should be at par with the public sector.
But the pay commission didn’t accept this and told that the demand for parity with the Public Sector was however difficult to concede as it felt that the Job content and condition of service in the government and public
sector not necessarily the same. There were essential differences between the two sectors.
The Sixth Central Pay Commission, claimed that it had not only tried to evolve a proper pay package for the Government employees but also to make recommendations rationalizing the governmental structure with a view to improve the delivery mechanisms for providing better services to the common man
What about seventh pay commission?
Generally every pay commission, before recommending a pay structure, analyzed all the aspects including the economic situation of the country, financial resources of the government, comparison with the public sector, private sector and state government pay structure etc.
Pay Determination is very complicated and sensitive task. Without any doubt every one accepts that this is very challenging task too. In order to determine the new pay structure the pay commission has to go through voluminous data consisting current economic condition, strength of the work force and working condition etc.
If one tries to suggest or comment about 7th pay commission pay scale or about what the seventh pay commission pay scales, it will seem too pre-mature.
However, we observed an interesting factor which is common to all the past pay commission
recommendations, particularly in the matter of percentage of increase in the pay. Average 3 times increase in the pay was recommended by each pay commission and it was accepted by government and implemented (except that the rise was only about 2.26 times after 6th CPC for the scales from S4 to S23 and nearly 3 times or more for the higher scales).
Average increase after each Pay Commission - is shown in each of the following tables.
Obviously it is simple thing, we can say it a mathematical coincidence that we have in common in all previous
pay commission, but we cannot neglect this. Because it was there, every time it is noticed that the revised pay was approximately three times higher than its pre revised pay. Apart from all the factors which has been used to determine the pay revision, we can use this simple formula ‘common multiplying factor’ to know the 7th pay commission pay scale . If next pay commission prefer to continue the same running pay band and grade pay
system for seventh pay commission also, the pay structure may be like the following projected figures given below, using common multiplying factor ‘3’. The Following is only the projected figure using common multiplying factor ‘3’...
