सरकार ने महंगाई भत्ता 2% बढ़ाया, एक करोड़ केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों-पेंशनरों को मिलेगा फायदा



मोदी सरकार ने एक करोड़ से ज्यादा केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों और पेंशनरों का महंगाई भत्ता (डीए) 2% बढ़ा दिया है। बुधवार को प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की अध्यक्षता में हुई कैबिनेट बैठक में इस फैसले को मंजूरी मिली। केंद्र सरकार ने बताया कि बढ़ती महंगाई को ध्यान में रखते हुए अब डीए 7% से बढ़ाकर 9% दिया जाएगा। इसी साल मार्च में भी महंगाई भत्ता 2% बढ़ा था, इसका फायदा जनवरी 2018 से दिया गया।
देश के 48 लाख केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों और 62 लाख पेंशनरों को जुलाई से इसका फायदा मिलेगा। यह बढ़ोत्तरी सातवें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के आधार पर तय फॉर्मूला के मुताबिक की गई। फैसले से सरकारी खजाने पर हर साल 6 हजार 112 करोड़ रुपए और 2018 के आठ महीने में 4 हजार 74 करोड़ रुपए का भार बढ़ेगा।

7वां वेतन आयोग : मोदी सरकार ने केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों का बढ़ाया महंगाई भत्‍ता, जानिए कितनी बढ़ेगी सैलरी



केंद्र सरकार ने केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों का DA (महंगाई भत्‍ता) दो फीसदी बढ़ाने का ऐलान किया है. अब यह बढ़कर 7 फीसदी से 9 फीसदी हो गया है. केंद्रीय कैबिनेट की आर्थिक मामलों की समिति ने इस प्रस्‍ताव को बुधवार (29 अगस्‍त) को मंजूरी दी. वित्‍त मंत्री अरुण जेटली ने बताया कि सरकार ने मार्च में कर्मियों का डीए दो फीसदी बढ़ाया था. तब यह 5 फीसदी से बढ़ाकर 7 फीसदी किया गया था. दो फीसदी डीए बढ़ने से केंद्रीय कर्मचारी के वेतन पर कितना असर पड़ेगा, इसे लेकर सरकारी दफ्तरों में गणना शुरू हो गई है. एक अनुमान के मुताबिक 7वें वेतन आयोग के तहत 18 हजार रुपए बेसिक पे पाने वाले कर्मचारियों को वेतन में अब महंगाई भत्‍ते के रूप में करीब 1620 रुपए प्रति माह बढ़कर मिलेंगे. यह गणना 9% डीए के आधार पर है और 1 जुलाई 2018 से लागू की गई है. इससे 1.1 करोड़ कर्मचारियों और पेंशन भोगियों को लाभ होगा.

7th Pay Commission Latest News today: 7th CPC to NPS benefits for lakhs of this state govt's employees



After getting a promise of 7th Pay Commission benefits, Tripura state government employees will now get the benefits of the National Pension System (NPS) too. Tripura has become the 28th state to adopt the NPS, effective from July 1. Now, all employees joining the Tripura state government services on or after July 1 will be mandatorily covered under NPA, Pension Fund and Regulatory Authority (PFRDA) has tweeted.

Newly-appointed CM Biplab Dev-led NDA government in Tripura had made the announcement on the state joining the NPS in the state Budget speech of 2018-19, and later its implementation was ordered by the state governor. Apart from the state government employees, the staff of Grant-in-aid institutions, autonomous bodies, Boards, PSU and other such organisations of the state joining on July 1 or after will also be covered under NPS in Tripura.

7th Pay Commission: With Jaitley back, decision on pay hike to speed up



It was Jaitley who had in fact said that all contentious issues relating to the 7th Pay Commission would be looked into and resolved. In his absence, there were only discussions on the official level, but no decision could be taken.

In fact Piyush Goyal who was in charge in Jaitley's absence did not take up the issue. Sources say that the talks were left pending and it was decided that the same would resume only once Jaitley took over. All discussions regarding the 7th Pay Commission were under Jaitley and now that he is back, the issue is expected to gain steam again and a decision could be made soon, sources also added. Today a communique from the Rashtrapati Bhavan read, " "The President of India, as advised by the Prime Minister, has directed to assign the portfolios of the minister of finance and minister of corporate affairs to Shri Arun Jaitley." Jaitley takes back charge at a very crucial time, as the government prepares for the final lap of economic consolidation in the run up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. There are a host of financial decisions that Jaitley would take, which would also include the pending issues relating to the 7th Pay Commission.

Indian Railways Operating At A Loss, Spends Rs 111 To Earn Only Rs 100



While you may be complaining of rising train fares and uncleanliness on railway platforms and in train coaches, a new data reveals Railways’ plight. 

Indian Railways spent a little over Rs 111 to earn Rs 100, signalling at poor operating ratio. The public entity set a record-high operating ratio of 111.51 per cent - which means it spent Rs 111.51 to generate every Rs 100, reflective of lower growth in traffic against the set target and heavy outgo because increased pension liability and working expenses.

7th pay commission: Pension bill hits Rs 47,000 cr; how it has affected Indian Railways



7th pay commission: While salaries of employees is one of the biggest fund outgoes for all government institutions, what also needs to be factored into the equation is the expenditure on pensioners. Also, While central government employees are often in the news, another big segment of employees are in the Indian Railways. Here we take a look at the Railways pensioners. Indian Railways, which is one of the largest employers in the government, has a huge number of pensioners. And now reports are emerging that since the passing of the Seventh Pay Commission benefits, Railways is facing a challenge to meet this extra burden even as it looks to focus on capacity augmentation, electrification, station redevelopment and overall infrastructure upgradation.

Indian rupee at 70/$: Strong USD, challenging global environment, US-Turkey tensions weigh, says DBS



The strong US dollar is expected to further weigh on the Indian rupee, which hit a low past the 70-mark against the greenback in recent foreign exchange movements, according to Singapore’s DBS Bank Group today. “A challenging global environment has compelled the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to intervene aggressively this year to contain INR depreciation. Foreign reserves have declined from a record high of USD 426 billion in April to USD 403 billion in early August,” said the bank in its daily market report.

“Contagion worries from the US-Turkey saber-rattling hurt the emerging markets (EM) currencies, with the Indian rupee depreciating to a record low past 70 per USD (down 9 per cent year-to-date),” noted DBS. Fund allocations away from EMs is likely to persist as the US Fed tightens policy.“We expect further risk-off trades and USD strength to weigh on the Indian rupee,” it said in the report “India chart book: Growth is back, so is volatility”.

Greatest currency devaluation in history: Check how many millions Venezuelan bolivars will equal 1 US dollar



Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro carried out one of the greatest currency devaluations in history over the weekend — a 95 percent plunge that will test the capacity of an already beleaguered population to stomach even more pain. The official rate for the currency will go from about 285,000 per dollar to 6 million, a shock that officials tried to partly offset by raising the minimum wage 3,500 percent to the equivalent of just $30 a month.

While Maduro boasted in Friday night’s announcement that the International Monetary Fund wasn’t involved in the policies, aspects of the moves bore a resemblance to a classic orthodox economic adjustment, albeit with some confusing twists.


7th Pay Commission Non Practicing Allowance – 20% Of Basic Pay



7th Pay Commission Non Practicing Allowance payable to Central Government Doctors in Medical and Veterinary Posts – 20% of Basic Pay – DA is payable on NPA

Non Practicing Allowance is a special kind of allowance payable to Doctors occupying the posts of Medical and Veterinary Services.

Until implmentation of 7th Pay Commission NPA (Non Practicing Allowance) was paid at the rate of 25% on tthe Basic Pay (Pay in Pay Band and Grade Pay).

7th Pay Commission had recommended that Non Practicing Allowance be paid at the rate of 20% of Basic Pay since it is a percentage based allowance. It may be noted that similar to to NPA all the percentage based allowances were proposed to be reduced to 0.8 times by 7th Pay Commission. While implementing 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations Govt also decided that NPA is payable at the rate of 20% of basic pay.

5 steps to handle workplace harassment as an employee




Workplace Harassment is an area that is gaining visibility due to the impact it has on overall organizational culture as well as employee well-being. It is the single most important reason for work-related stress.

Many people use workplace harassment and sexual harassment interchangeably, or believe it to be the most harmful. However, they are not the same. Sexual harassment is a subset, or one of the types, of workplace harassment. Also, bullying, belittling or shaming, aggression, discrimination, and abuse at the workplace also qualifies as harassment and is equally harmful.

7th Pay Commission: No Pay Hike For Central Govt Employees But Hope Still Alive



Expectations and hope of the 50 lakhs Central government employees related to a possible minimum pay hike announcement by the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre, were crushed again. It was not for the first time that the government’s move has disappointed the CG employees.

With this, the question now arises what will be the next step of the CG employees… Will they go for an agitation- ceasework or else? Can the employees trust the Modi government at a time when their demand for the hike in the minimum pay have been repeatedly gone unheeded? Of all, will there really be a hike in the minimum pay?

7th Pay Commission: Another RBI study likely to stand in the way of pay hike



The speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort clearly did not bring any joy for the Central Government employees who were waiting for good news regarding the 7th Pay Commission.

They were expecting a major announcement, but there was none. As a result of this the painful wait for an announcement on the hike in basic minimum pay and fitment factor would continue. 



Now this brings us to the question as to whether there would really be a pay hike beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. Some believe that there could be some announcement, but others believe that there would be none at all. Several persons that OneIndia spoke with appeared to be confused. One person even said, " I have been hearing that there would be a pay hike.
