Addressing a one day workers convention at Brahamin Sabha here, Shastri pointed out that except sixth pay commission all earlier pay commissions were constituted in the 3rd year of every decade.
In other words earlier pay commissions except 6th pay commission were formed well before its implementation become due.
“A notification for constitution of the 7th pay commission is the need of the hour, which is bound to have bearing on about one core employees and pensioners, both in Central as well as State governments,” NMC Chief added.
Recalling that it was under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that last pay panel was set up in 2005, after previous government failed to do so in 2003, Shastri requested that decision be “taken on priority for constitution of the pay commission.”
“50 per cent of DA should be forthwith merged into basic pay and pension,” he said, adding, 20 per cent Interim relief should be sanctioned as early as possible in favour of the employees and pensioners.
