Central staff to march to Parliament

The Confederation of Central Government Employees will take out a march to Parliament on July 26, demanding constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission and dismantling of the new pension scheme.

Talking to reporters in Chennai, general secretary of the Confederation M. Duraipandian said though the Centre had trumpeted that the Sixth Pay Commission had increased the salary of the employees by 28 to 40 per cent, increase in petrol prices and hike in the price of essential commodities had proved that salary hike was not adequate.


“The only way out is constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission. Many private sector companies in Tamil Nadu revise the salaries of their employees once in four months. In transport sector it is done in every three years. The insurance sector has seen revision of pay nine times. We need pay revision once in five years,” he said.

Bleak future

Mr. Duraipandian said the new pension scheme was against the interest of the employees as the government had plans to invest the money in the share market and it would create bleak future.

Due to NPS System Govt promote companies/ govt bodies, on the value of future of Govt employee. it is not genuine? please stop NPS and start GPF scheme, because an employee gives you 30-40 years of his/her life after that there is no suriety regarding his retirement.
I wish the agitation programme a grand success!

The pay commission should also recommend performance based promotion system instead of seniority system which result in good officers getting left out who later loose interest in work.
