Recommend interim relief to govt employees: NMC

Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

National Mazdoor Conference today urged the chairman of the newly-constituted 7th pay commission to recommend 20 per cent interim relief in favour of both central and state government employees.

"We urge the chairman of the 7th pay commission that it should recommend to the new Central government (after the election) to accord the interim relief in favor of both central and state government employees and pensioners to the tune of 20 per cent interim relief in basic pay," NMC president Subash Shastri said in a memorandum sent to the chairman of 7th pay commission.

These recommendation should be made soon after lifting up Model Code of Conduct, he said.

He also demanded merger of 50 per cent DA with the basic pay-pension and enhancement of retirement age of 62 years in case of central government employees.

Shastri emphasised that whenever the recommendation of the commission are submitted to the Central government, the Commission should extend these recommendations to the state governments in general and Jammu and Kashmir in particular.

He batted strongly for commencement of the negotiations with representatives of Associations, unions and Federations of Central government employees and pensioners so that report could be submitted within stipulated period.

"Since twenty months left to complete pay commission report, it has been urged to the chairman and other members of the 7th pay commission to pay visit to all states of the country to obtain views of state governments employees and pensioners organisations," he said.

Shastri also urged the chairman to formulate National Pay policy for both central and state government employees and pensioners, adding that the 7th pay commission should be declared as the National pay commission.
