SEPERATE PAY COMMISSION FOR ARMED FORCES IS A GENUINE DEMAND, SAYS NJCA

Seperate Pay Commission for armed forces is a genuine demand, says NJCA

More than 12 lakh armed forces officials are eagerly waiting for the pay hike under 7th Pay Commission and almost 10 months have been passed there are no news of implementation of 7CPC.

New Delhi, April 20: Seperate Pay Commission is a genuine demand made by by the armed forces, National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) chief Shiv Gopal Mishra said to India.com. “Their demands are genuine, their dissent is genuine and their agitation is also genuine,” Shiv Gopal Mishra said to India.com.

From last couple of years the armed forces have been demanding a separate pay commission and had also approached Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for the same.

More than 12 lakh armed forces officials are eagerly waiting for the pay hike under 7th Pay Commission and almost 10 months have been passed there are no news of implementation of 7CPC.

On Wednesday the central government employees’ unions had threatened to call for nationwide strike due to delay in clarity on higher allowance and dearness allowance under the 7th Pay Commission. Some reports suggest that the delay was caused as some members of the committee were flying outside the country.

However, the government has not given any official statement on the submission of final report and there are expectations that it may take one more week for the committee on higher allowance to submit its report.


The National Joint Council of Action on Wednesday said that a large section of central government employees were planing to go on a nationwide strike. The NJCA is a joint body of unions representing central government employees.

In August last year, the allowance commitee was formed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley which was headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa who was given a responsibility to look into the demands of nearly 1 crore central government employees and pensioners for provisions of House Rent Allowance (HRA) and Dearness Allowance (DA).

The committee was ordered to submit its report by October but it was delayed. However, there were reports, that the committee will submit its final report by April 18 after the “crucial” meeting held on April 6, which did not happened.
