Comparing fifth and sixth Pay Commission reports.
Some Observations :-
- Fifth CPC terminology of “Basic Pay” is comparable to Sixth CPC terminology of “Total Pay”.
- All previous pay commissions taken on average had given an increase of 3.3 times for basic pays.
- Sixth Pay commission has raised Basic/Total Pay 2.5 times on average and is lagging behind the previous pay commissions by 25% approximately.
- However allowances have been increased e.g. TA and Children education etc. quantum of increase being more than previous pay commissions.
- On the whole legitimate needs of employees have been met like Finance Minister stated during budget but it is far from being a Bonanza!
- What do you think does this CPC fulfill your expectations?
