One of the biggest expectations among central employees is dearness allowance. The govt announced the 2% DA hike from 01/01/2017. In March salary employees will receive hiked DA and the balance arrears will be paid later in the midst of April.
But regarding house rent allowance and other allowances till date govt didn’t take any decision.The central minister replies to a question raised in Lok sabha about allowances he replied that the high level committee has not yet submitted reports to the government. This was the latest news of all allowances.
On 16/03/2017 most of the federation decided to do one day strike to force the govt to finalize against their charter of demands which includes minimum wage increase,fitment factors, all allowances and scrap new pension scheme etc.
Actually the strike news was ignored by most of the media so the impact of strike work will not bring any favor to the employees. The central government did not take much effort to stop the strike. More than 10 lakhs employees participated in this strike. Defense civilian employees and railway employees did not get involved in the strike work but they organised Dharnas in front of the office and the factory.
Most of the employees felt that July 11th indefenite strike must have began and force the govt to decide on demands. If that happened minimum wages may get hiked and allowances will also be implemented as per 7th cpc recommendations .
Five states assembly election results are also in favor to govt. So govt thinks the way govt moves is right.However final decisions is in govt hands. Struggling and agitations will not make any changes. So NC JCM and NJCA should get an appointment voluntarily to discuss the matters of central employees wages and allowances and try to find a decent agreement. Already fifteen months have been passed from the date of 7th CPC implementation. To minimize the recurring loss of employees, union leaders must take all initiatives to get maximum benefits for employees.
