Confederation Press Release on the announcement of 7th CPC
Central Government has announced the constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has been raising this demand before the Government right from 2011 onwards and has conducted series of agitational programmes including Parliament March and one day nationwide strike on 12th December 2012.
While welcoming the decision of the Government, we are disappointed to note that our demand for five years wage revision w.e.f. 01.01.2011 and merger of DA has not been considered favourably by the Government. When the public sector employees are given five years wage revision and the erosion in real wages has reached an all time high due to steep price rise, grant of five year wage revision to Central Government employees is fully justified. Similarly every time the Government appointed pay commission merger of DA was also granted. This time Government has not acceded the demand for merger of DA with pay now. Thus by appointing pay commission employees will not be getting any financial benefit now. The demand for inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under the purview of the 7th CPC and grant of merger of DA to GDS is also pending.
In view of the above, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers urge upon the Government to consider the above demands also favourably failing which the confederation shall be constrained go for further agitational programmes.

Message on the announcement of 7th CPC - Postal Pensioners Association
We on behalf of the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association express that the Government also should come forward to include the items of Pensioners in the terms of reference and that there should be an opportunity for the Pensioners Organizations to express their opinions on this before finalisation of the terms of references. We the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association also feels disappointed that while the Government has come forward to accept the demand of the CG Employees Organisations has kept silent on the vital issue of merger of 50% DA with the Basic Pay for the serving the Government Employees and with the Basic Pension for the Pensioners. This demand is very important in the background of the escalating prices of all essential commodities and the real value of pension and pay have got reduced very much. We request the Government to come forward to take a positive decision on the issue of merger of DA / DR as the case may be and also request all organisations of CG Employees and the Pensioners to raise their voice strongly demanding the merger of DA immediately.
