Central employees demand seventh pay commission, march to parliament on 26th July

The Confederation of Central Government Employees will take out a march to Parliament on July 26, demanding constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission and dismantling of the new pension scheme.
Talking to reporters in Chennai, general secretary of the Confederation M. Duraipandian said though the Centre had trumpeted that the Sixth Pay Commission had increased the salary of the employees by 28 to 40 per cent, increase in petrol prices and hike in the price of essential commodities had proved that salary hike was not adequate.


“The only way out is constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission. Many private sector companies in Tamil Nadu revise the salaries of their employees once in four months. In transport sector it is done in every three years. The insurance sector has seen revision of pay nine times. We need pay revision once in five years,” he said.
Bleak future
Mr. Duraipandian said the new pension scheme was against the interest of the employees as the government had plans to invest the money in the share market and it would create bleak future.

  1. Sir,
    I totally in agreement with your mission to press for early constitution of seventh pay commission, because our past experience shows that the government is not honestly extending a sympathetic support to the salaried, instead always tried to befool its employees.

    Regarding the second issue, I would like to disagree with the proposal. It is the responsibility of the government to reduce the budget deficit. Pension liability is one of the biggest pay out from the governments’ resources. To satisfy the international governing bodies, we must make our national budget a “Surplus one”. So, we may retain the New Pension Scheme. However it may be transformed to an Employee-Friendly scheme by proper modifications / amendments.

    Thanking You,
