7th Pay Commission Minimum Wage and Fitment Factor – NCJCM writes to Cabinet Secretary
Dated: 28th July 2016
The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashtrapati Bhawan Annexie,
We wish to invite your kind attention towards the discussion we had on 30.06.2016 at the residence of Hon’ble Home Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh, wherein Hon’ble Minister for Finance, Shri Arun Jaitley, Hon’ble Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, and Hon’ble Minister of State for Railways, Shri Manoj Sinha, were present, wherein it was assured to the representatives of the NJCA that the issues pertaining to Minimum Wage and Fitment Multiplication Factor would be referred to a “High Level Committee” to review the same.
It is a matter of concern that, despite elapsing a pretty long time, nothing has been heard in this regard from the Government of India, which is leading to serious resentment amongst the Central Government Employees.
In the background of issuance of the Notification by the Government of India on 26.07.2016 to give effect to the recommendations of the 7th CPC as per 29th June, 2016 Cabinet decision, we request you to expedite action for setting up the proposed “High Level Committee” to review Minimum Wage and Fitment Multiplication Factor as was promised in the 30th June, 2016 meeting and also in the subsequent meeting of 6th July, 2016 with the Hon’ble Home Minister(Government of India), which paved way for deferment of “Indefinite strike” which was proposed to be held from 11th July 2016.
It would be highly appreciated if necessary orders are issued for setting up the said committee without further delay to resolve these issues in a quick way.
With Kind Regards!
(SHIVA GOPAL MISHRA)
