10 reasons why unions are furious over 7th CPC recommendations

  1. The proposed 7th Pay Commission hike is lowest in many decades and not in sync with inflation - least hike (proposed) in the last 30 years. Considering the inflation, it is unsatisfactory. 

  2. 7th Pay Commission has recommended a 14.3 per cent hike in net pay against projected 23.55 per cent. The previous pay commission had recommended for a hike of 54%, which was implemented 

  3. It was expected to reduce the gap in maximum and minimum pay. However 7th Pay Commission report recommendations maintains the gap. 

  4. The gratuity ceiling recommended by 7th Pay Commission has been raised from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh, the benefit of this will go to senior officials only.

  5. 7th Pay Commission report has ignored sharp increase in prices justifying substantial upward revision in HRA and other allowances. Instead the commission has reduced rates of HRA from 30 per cent to 24 per cent of the basic pay in A Class cities and corresponding decrease in other cities which is a retrograde recommendation. 

  6. Doubts about the way the 7th Pay Commission has calculated the figures. For example, they calculated House Rent Allowance (HRA) at 3 per cent against the mandated 7 per cent. 

  7. As per commodity prices on Agriculture Ministry's website and on the basis of Labour Bureau data, the Basic Pay comes at Rs 11,341 while 7th Pay Commission calculation shows it at Rs 9,218. There is a lot of gap.8. There is no clarity in the 7th Pay Commission report on the pay revision for lakhs of contract workers in government ministries as well as 3 lakh Grameen Dak Sewaks.

  9. 7th Pay Commission is the only commission, which has reduced the allowances and due to which the growth in net income is only 14.28 per cent.

  10. 7th Pay Commission report is totally disappointing and beats logic. Employees and workers will meet on November 27 to protest against the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and discuss the issue.
