President of the National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) Subash Shastri on Monday pleaded that seventh pay commission should recommend to the central government for merger of 50% Dearness Allowance (DA) and payment of 20% interim relief in favour of empoyees till the commission submit its final report to the central government.
He pointed out that inflation has its worst impact on government employees. High prices of day-to-day goods make it difficult for government employees to afford even the basic commodities in their lives.
He also urged the seventh central pay panel to commence visits of various states of the country to discuss with all the stake holders for devising formula for finalizing its recommendations well in time.
Addressing a rally of NMC activists here, Shastri said that a calendar of meetings with representatives of central government employees and pensioners organizations, state governments and all other concerned should be drawn up so that recommendations of the seventh CPC are simultaneously implemented in favour of both centre and state governments employees and pensioners and there are no anomalies, whatsoever, while implementing the report of the commission.
Shastri suggested that seventh central pay panel should be also recommended to the central government to arrange the resources for the states having facing financial constraints to enable them to implement its all recommendation in one go.
