Need for submission of 7CPC Report in time to avoid payment of arrears

Need for submission of 7CPC Report in time to avoid payment of arrears- Article by by gconnect
Need for submission of 7CPC Report in time to avoid payment of  arrears – 7th Pay Commission faces many of challenges, Mr. Jaitly is the ray of hope of the central government employees.
As 7CPC is likely to be given effect from January 2016, finance Minister has an important role to play in its implementation.

We all know 7CPC is already on the job of reviewing Pay, allowances and service conditions of Central Government Employees. Needless to say CG Employees are very curious as to what is in store for them. 7th Pay commission was constituted in Feb 2014, and was provided with 15 months period to give its report which ends in September 2015.
Most of the previous pay commissions constituted by the government have submitted their report only after three years. 6th pay commission was delayed due to some technical snag but still the report was submitted within two years and the government too accepted it in full and implemented the same immediately.
6th pay commission is known as the best until now because it changed the Pay Band and Grade Pay of all the classes of Employees and it got wide applause among the employees. Of course it was contended by few to the effect that 6th CPC consisted of some flaws but it is a fact to be accepted, people who were against the 6th pay commission in the beginning started liking it later.
6th pay commission brought large scale changes in the Pay Scale, because of which the administration faced certain difficulties in the implementation. It is also a fact that on account of implementation of 6th CPC, difference in Pay between the Junior and senior employees of same cadre got minimised. Junior Employees who were happy with the 6th pay commission in the beginning started to complain later that their promotional prospects were curtailed.
In fact, Anomalies attributed to 6CPC were not new. Recommendations of Previous pay commissions too had created such anomalies. So, enhancing the salary of employees without any anomalies would one of the many challenges of 7th pay commission
It is widely believed that 6th pay commission, has done all the spade work for the future pay commissions. Definitely it has made the 7th pay commission’s work lot easier. So, Principles of the 6th CPC can be adopted as such by 7th pay commission. Even if the recommendations of 7CPC does not make any sea change but provides a reasonable revision of pay and allowances taking in to account the inflation and other service conditions of government emoloyees, it would be termed as a good report.
The most Bigger challenge that 7CPC faces now is to present its report in time.
When we talk about the pay commission, we cannot avoid talking about the Mr.Modi’s Government. Finance minister Mr. Jetly has definitely won the hearts of many by increasing the Income Tax Exemption Slab. Further, he went on to say : if I had more, I would have given more” which projects him as a well wisher of the Salaried Employees.
It is expected that 7th Pay Commission would submit its report by the end of this year. We have also reports from reliable sources that the Government will not delay in implementing the same because the Government doesn’t want to burden itself by accumulating the arrears of pay and Pension. This aspect was clearly pointed out by the Finance Minister recently.
It seems, this would be the first pay commission in the history of India to implemented in time without involving any arrears of Pay and Pension. If everything goes on as expected, it would not be wrong to say Good days are ahead for Central Government Employees from 2016.

Use post offices to deliver services, information: PM Modi

To leverage the assets of postal network, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said post offices in rural areas can be used to deliver various services and information to the individual households. 

He also said the postal network can become a driving force for the economy, similar to the Indian Railways, and the huge assets held by the Postal department across the country can be suitably used for the benefit of the people, he said. 

Modi, speaking after the presentation of a report by the task force on leveraging India's post office network, said post offices in rural areas can be used to deliver services and important government information to individual households. 

Modi has directed that recommendations of the task force be studied in detail within a short period of time, so that necessary follow-up action can be initiated, an official statement said. 

Minister for Communication and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad was also present. The presentation on behalf of the task force was given by its Chairman, TSR Subramanian. 

Modi said, postman along with the teacher, is the most respected government employee in rural areas. 

Modi had set up the Task Force last year to leverage the postal network in India and to enhance the role of India Post in financial inclusion, among other services like delivery of goods for eCommerce firms. 

In December last year, the Task Force had submitted its report to Prasad. It noted that with its Rs 6 lakh crore in deposits, India Post is second only to the country's largest bank SBI. 

The report suggested that the government should set up a holding company under the Department of Posts for immediate roll out of banking, insurance and e-commerce services by the 1.55 lakh strong postal network. 

The holding company should have five different verticals, and three of them -- banking, insurance and e-commerce -- can start working immediately. 

It added that e-commerce could be the second largest activity after banking that DoP can foray into for emerging as one of biggest players in the world. 

The panel also suggested establishing Post Bank of India as a separate entity with a branch in each district in the first three years with initial capital of Rs 500 crore to be funded by the government. 

Post Bank of India and Prime Minister's Jan Dhan Yojana can compliment each other for financial inclusion, Subramanian said.
