JAMMU, Nov 24: The National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) today urged Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to immediately appoint chairman and other members of the recently-announced 7th Pay Commission (PC) at the next Cabinet meeting.
“We urge the PM to appoint Chairman and other members of the 7th Pay Commission and take decision in this regard at the next Cabinet meeting and start discussion with representatives of both Central and State Government employees and pensioners as they (employees and pensioners) will be entitled for Pay Commission with effect from January 1, 2011,” NMC president Subash Shastri said while addressing a workers’ rally here today.
The NMC president said early notification for appointing chairman and other members of the commission is the need of the hour, which is bound to have bearing on about one crore employees and pensioners.
Stressing the need for merging 50 percent DA with basic pay and pension, Shastri appealed the PM and the Finance Minister to take an early decision in this regard.
He said the merging of DA is necessary and it would provide some relief to salaried employees. He also appealed the State Government to immediately release the pending instalment of DA due from July last year.
Pleading the cause of daily wagers, casual and seasonal workers working in various departments of State Government, Shastri demanded early amendment in SRO 64 and stressed for time bound implementation policy for regularization of all daily wagers, casual and seasonal workers, who have completed seven years of service in March 2012.
