Calculate New Salary using 7th Pay Commission Pay Scale Calculator Written By Admin on Jun 29, 2016 | June 29, 2016

7th CPC was cleared today by Union Cabinet Ministers. To our utter disappointed it is implemented without any changes. But what we can do? Let's see if our Unions can fight.

But before that let us know how much our pay is increasing and how the pay is calculated.

Note: If you are lazy like me, scroll down directly and use the calculator

1. First multiply your current basic with

a) 2.57 if you are in the pay scale of 5200-20200
b) 2.62 if you are in the pay scale of 9300-34800
c) 2.67 if you are in the pay scale of 15600-39100

all higher grade officers will anyways get much higher salaries so we will not discuss about them here.

Now after multiplying your current basic(including grade pay) see this image below.

Now check your new basic as follows.

My basic is 11510. So if if multiply 11510 with 2.57( i'm in 5200-20200 pay scale with grade pay 2400) i will get 29580.07. Round it off to 29581. Now in the first image in pay band 5200-20200 and in grade pay 2400 column check where we find the next higher figure to 29581.

In my case the new basic will be 29600.

So that is my new basic. = 29600. Lets see my new gross salary.

New Basic = 29600
New DA ( as on 01.01.2016) = 0%
New HRA = 29600x24% = 7104 ( i live in hyderabad , so new hra will be 24%)
New TA = 3600+(3600*0%)=3600(For  Higher TPTA cities like mumbai, delhi, hyderabad etc ta will be 3600+DA and for other cities it will be 1800+DA. TA also depend on our new pay level See TA table below)

So my total gross will be 40304.

My present Gross is 32951.

Hike i am getting is 40304  -  32951 = 7353.

And media is calling this as bonanza, bumper offer, inflation will rise.

For lazy people like me you can directly use the calculator. I don't know who created it but thanks to them.

Calculate your new salary and comment your old and new salaries below.

Cabinet approves Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission 

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) on pay and pensionary benefits.   It will come into effect from 01.01.2016.

In the past, the employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations at the time of 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of 6th CPC.  However, this time, 7th CPC recommendations are being implemented within 6 months from the due date.

The Cabinet has also decided that arrears of pay and pensionary benefits will be paid during the current financial year (2016-17) itself, unlike in the past when parts of arrears were paid in the next financial year. 

The recommendations will benefit over 1 crore employees. This includes over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.


1.     The present system of Pay Bands and Grade Pay has been dispensed with and a new Pay Matrix as recommended by the Commission has been approved. The status of the employee, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the Pay Matrix. Separate Pay Matrices have been drawn up for Civilians, Defence Personnel and for Military Nursing Service. The principle and rationale behind these matrices are the same.

2.     All existing levels have been subsumed in the new structure; no new levels have been introduced nor has any level been dispensed with. Index of Rationalisation has been approved for arriving at minimum pay in each Level of the Pay Matrix depending upon the increasing role, responsibility and accountability at each step in the hierarchy.

3.     The minimum pay has been increased from Rs.  7000 to 18000 p.m.  Starting salary of a newly recruited employee at lowest level will now be Rs.  18000 whereas for a freshly recruited Class I officer, it will be Rs.  56100.  This reflects a compression ratio of 1:3.12 signifying that pay of a Class I officer on direct recruitment will be three times the pay of an entrant at lowest level.

4.     For the purpose of revision of pay and pension, a fitment factor of 2.57 will be applied across all Levels in the Pay Matrices. After taking into account the DA at prevailing rate, the salary/pension of all government employees/pensioners will be raised by at least 14.29 % as on 01.01.2016.

5.     Rate of increment has been retained at 3 %. This will benefit the employees in future on account of higher basic pay as the annual increments that they earn in future will be 2.57 times than at present.

6.     The Cabinet approved further improvements in the Defence Pay Matrix by enhancing Index of Rationalisation for Level 13A (Brigadier) and providing for additional stages in Level 12A (Lieutenant Colonel), 13 (Colonel) and 13A (Brigadier) in order to bring parity with Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) counterparts at the maximum of the respective Levels.
7. Some other decisions impacting the employees including Defence & Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel include :

·        Gratuity ceiling enhanced from Rs.  10 to 20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity will increase by 25 % whenever DA rises by 50 %.
·        A common regime for payment of Ex-gratia lump sum compensation for civil and defence forces personnel payable to Next of Kin with the existing rates enhanced from Rs. 10-20 lakh to 25-45 lakh for different categories.
·        Rates of Military Service Pay revised from Rs.  1000, 2000, 4200 & 6000 to 3600, 5200, 10800 & 15500 respectively for various categories of Defence Forces personnel.
·        Terminal gratuity equivalent of 10.5 months of reckonable emoluments for Short Service Commissioned Officers who will be allowed to exit Armed Forces any time between 7 and 10 years of service.
·        Hospital Leave, Special Disability Leave and Sick Leave subsumed into a composite new Leave named ‘Work Related Illness and Injury Leave’ (WRIIL). Full pay and allowances will be granted to all employees during the entire period of hospitalization on account of WRIIL.

8.     The Cabinet also approved the recommendation of the Commission to enhance the ceiling of House Building Advance from Rs.  7.50 lakh to 25 lakh. In order to ensure that no hardship is caused to employees, four interest free advances namely Advances for Medical Treatment, TA on tour/transfer, TA for family of deceased employees and LTC have been retained. All other interest free advances have been abolished.

9.     The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.

10. The general recommendations of the Commission on pension and related benefits have been approved by the Cabinet. Both the options recommended by the Commission as regards pension revision have been accepted subject to feasibility of their implementation. Revision of pension using the second option based on fitment factor of 2.57 shall be implemented immediately. A Committee is being constituted to address the implementation issues anticipated in the first formulation. The first formulation may be made applicable if its implementation is found feasible after examination by proposed Committee which is to submit its Report within 4 months.

11. The Commission examined a total of 196 existing Allowances and, by way of rationalization, recommended abolition of 51 Allowances and subsuming of 37 Allowances. Given the significant changes in the existing provisions for Allowances which may have wide ranging implications, the Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances.  The Committee will complete its work in a time bound manner and submit its reports within a period of 4 months. Till a final decision, all existing Allowances will continue to be paid at the existing rates.

12. The Cabinet also decided to constitute two separate Committees (i) to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of National Pension System (NPS) and (ii) to look into anomalies likely to arise out of implementation of the Commission’s Report.

13. Apart from the pay, pension and other recommendations approved by the Cabinet, it was decided that the concerned Ministries may examine the issues that are administrative in nature, individual post/ cadre specific and issues in which the Commission has not been able to arrive at a consensus.

14. As estimated by the 7th CPC, the additional financial impact on account of implementation of all its recommendations in 2016-17 will be Rs. 1,02,100 crore. There will be an additional implication of Rs. 12,133 crore on account of payments of arrears of pay and pension for two months of 2015-16.

National Joint Council of Action
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi – 110055

Dated 9th June, 2016.

            The National Joint Council of Action was formed as an apex level organization of the under-mentioned   Associations/Federations participating in the negotiating body of the Central Government employees at the National level, called the Joint Consultative Machinery.

1.    All India Railway men Federation.
2.    National Federation of Indian Railway men
3.    All India Defence Employees Federation
4.    Indian National Defence Workers Federation
5.    Confederation of Central Government employees and workers representing the
Unions and Associations in all Departments other than Railways and Defence.
6.    National Federation of Postal Employees
7.    Federation of National Postal organizations.

            It was formed in the wake of the then UPA Government refusing to enter into any meaningful negotiations with the Employees Federation.  In the face of the unprecedented rise in the inflation of the Indian Economy during 2006 -16, the employees demanded the Government to effect wage rise for the emoluments fixed on the basis of the 6thCPC was incapable of meeting the both end of an employee especially at the lowest level.  Though under threat the then Government conceded the demand for setting up of the 7th CPC, they stubbornly refused to grant any interim relief or DA merger, which alone would have mitigated the difficulties of the low paid workers  When the NDA Government came to power, the NJCA approached them also with a request that the difficulties of the  low paid workers in Central Government must be appreciated and the demand for Interim Relief or DA merger be conceded.  The NDA Government too did not respond to the plea made by the NJCA. 

            The 7th CPC which was set up in Feb. 2014 was to submit its report in August, 2016.  However, at the intervention of the Government, the report was further delayed and it ultimately reached the Government only in November, 2015.  Their recommendations were to be effective from 1.1.2016.  Except setting up an empowered Committee of Secretaries, the Government did not do anything so far on the report.  It is now more than six months the report is with the Government. Normally the  revised allowances which form part and parcel of the salary of the employees are granted with prospective effect i.e. from the date of the issue of the orders.  The delay in taking decision on the report will rob the employees of the increased allowances for ever.   This apart, the report of the 7thCPC was totally disappointing as it did not address any of the issues projected before them in a proper manner and most of the demands were rejected sans reasoning and logic.  The increase they recommended was a paltry 14%, the lowest any Pay Commission had ever suggested.  The NJCA in a detailed memorandum submitted on 10th December, 2015,  conveyed to the Government as to how the recommendations on all major issues were bereft of logic and reasoning and suggested as to what improvements were required thereon.  The NJCA had been pursuing to have a meaningful negotiation and settlement of the issues.  Except hearing the leaders, the empowered Committee did not go further. It acted as if it was powerless and the final decision will have to be taken by the Government.  At the request of the Cabinet Secretary on Ist March, 2016, when the NJCA deferred the strike action which was to commence in April, 2016. 

            As there had been no fruitful negotiations or discussions and having realized that the Government has no intention to settle the Charter of demands, the NJCA decided to serve the notice for an Indefinite strike action on 9thJune, 2016.  Accordingly, all the constituent organizations have served the strike notice today to their respective heads of Departments.  The indefinite strike will commence on 11th July, 2016, if no satisfactory settlement is brought about on the charter of demands (which is enclosed). 

            About 35 lakh workers and employees belonging to various Departments of the Government of India will participate in the strike action, which is to commence on11th July, 2016.  It will certainly be the largest participated strike action of the Central Civil Servants of the country since its independence. The determination of the Minimum wage on the basis of Dr. Aykhroyd formula enunciated in 1957 to which the Government of India was a party is the most significant issue in the charter of demands.   A right settlement thereon will have far reaching impact in the wage determination of the entire working class in the country.   The confrontation is between the forces who wanted India to be the destination for cheap labour and others who fight against the exploitation. 

            The new Contributory Pension scheme introduced by the Government in 2004 has made one third of the Civil servants unsure of their entitlement at the evening of their life even though they were  to contribute huge sums from their wages every month compulsorily.  The PFRDA bill became an Act in the country as the members of Parliament both belonging to NDA and UPA voted in favour of the loot of the workers.  Even the recommendation made by the Standing Committee of the Parliament to provide for a minimum guaranteed annuity pension was rejected when the Bill was passed.  The other issue which must have a satisfactory settlement in the charter of demands is about the contributory pension scheme. 

            There was perhaps only one and only one positive recommendation made by the 7th CPC. That was to give some relief in the pension entitlement of the past pensioners.  The Government has now proposed to reject that recommendation on the specious plea that the relevant records required for the verification of the claim of the individual pensioners especially those retired long time back may not be available with the Government.  If the Government chooses to accept such also untenable advices from whichever quarter it emanates,  it would not only be unfortunate but will make the strike action an imminent inevitability.  While the NJCA hopes that the good counsel will prevail upon the Government to avert the strike action, it appeals all its constituents and through them all Central Government employees to go ahead with the preparation of the strike action, which is slated to commence from 11thJuly, 2016 with courage and determination.

Part A.

10.  Do not amend Labour Laws in the name of Labour Reforms which will take away the existing benefits to the workers.
11.  Revive JCM functioning at all levels.

Part B
1.     Re-compute the minimum wage on the basis of the actual commodity prices as on 1.7.2015and factor the Dr. Aykroyd formula stipulated percentages for housing and social obligations, children education etc. Revise the fitment formula  and pay levels on the basis of the so determined minimum wage;
We are not in agreement with the methodology adopted by the 7th CPC in computing the minimum WAGE.  We give hereunder briefly the reasons thereof.
1.    The retail  prices of the commodities quoted by the Labour bureau is irrational, imaginary and even absurd in respect of certain articles at certain places.  The Staff Side had objected to the adoption of those rates in its meeting with the Commission on 9th June, 2015.  
2.    The adoption of 12 monthly average of the retail prices is contrary to Dr. Aykroyd formula.  Same is the case with the reduction effected by the Commission on housing and social obligation factors. The house rent allowance is not a full compensation of the expenditure incurred by an employee for obtaining an accommodation.  Therefore, no reduction on that count in arriving at the minimum wage is permissible.  We may cite the minimum wage computation made by the 3rd CPC in this regard,  The employees were in receipt of HRA even at that time.  But still the 3rd CPC, and rightly so, adopted the 7.5% as the factor for housing.  In  respect of the addition to be made for children education and social obligation as per the Supreme Court judgement, (25%) the Commission has reduced the percentage to 15% on the specious plea that the employees are separately given children education allowance.  The Children education allowance is not a full reimbursement of the expenses one has to incur.  After the liberalization of the Education Sector where private parties were allowed to set up universities and colleges, the expenses for education had increased heavily .  No concession or allowance is granted to the employees for educating the children beyond the higher secondary levels.   The earlier Pay Commission has only tried to compensate a little in the increasing cost of education and that too at the primary level, since even the Governmental institutions had started charging abnormal tuition and other fees.
3.    The website maintained for the Agriculture Ministry depicts the retail prices of commodities which go into the basket of minimum wage computation.  Even though the rates quoted by them vary from the real retail prices in the market, it provides a different picture.   If one is to take the rates quoted by them for different cities and make an all India average of the prices as on 1.7.2015, it will work out to Rs. 10810. It will result in the computation of the minimum wage of Rs. 19880.  Adding 25% for arriving at the MTS scale, it will rise to Rs. 24850.  To convert the same as on 1.1.2016, 3% will be added as suggested by the 7th CPC.  The final computation will be Rs. 25,596, when rounded off shall be Rs. 26000.
4.    The Andhra Pradesh State Pay Commission in its report has taken the commodity prices at Rs. 9830.- as on 1.7.2013 which works out to a minimum wage of Rs. 18080.  The wage of MTS will then be Rs. 22600 as on 1.7.2013,  The Corresponding figure for 1.1.2016 shall be Rs. 26758 , rounded off to Rs. 27000.
5.    The Staff side had computed the minimum wage as on 1.1.2014 at Rs. 26,000, taking the commodity price at Rs. 11344.  The rates were taken on the basis of the actual retail prices in the market as on 1.1.2014( average prices of 8 Cities in the country) substantiated by the documentary evidence of Cash bill obtained from the concerned vendors.  As on 1.12016, the minimum wage work out to Rs. 29339, rounded off to Rs. 30,000.
6.    The 5th CPC adopted the rate of growh in the economy ( as reflected in the increase in the per capita net national produce at factor cost) over a period of ten years to arrive at the increase required to be made to arrive at the minimum wage.  The per capita NNP at factor cost registered an increase of 65.28% over a period of ten years in 2013-14.  If we apply the same percentage to the emoluments (Pay +DA) as on 1.1.2016 (assuming that DA will be 125% as on that date), the minimum wage as on 1.1.2016 for an MTS will have to be Rs. 26030, rounded off to Rs. 27000.
7.    In para 4.2.9 of the report, the Commission has given a table depicting the percentage increase provided by the successive Pay Commissions, according to which the 2nd CPC had made a paltry increase of 14.2%. The 3rd CPC gave a rise of 20.6, 4th 27.6, 5th  31.0 and 6th CPC  54%. While the per centage increase had been in ascending order all along, the 7th CPC has sought to reverse that trend ostensibly for reasons unknown. It is was the meager increase of 14% provided for by the 2nd CPC that triggered the volatile situation in the civil service and led to all India strike encompassing all employees which lasted for 5 days in 1960. We do not know whether the 7 CPC really intend to create such a scenario once again.
8.    In the case of Bank, Insurance and many other Public Sector Undertakings wage revision takes place once in 5 years. In the recently concluded agreement, Bank employees were provided more than 15% increase.
9.    After the implementation of the Pay Commissions Report the AP State Employees have been given a wage structure based on a minimum wage far above the level of Central Government employees. In their case also wage revision does take place once in 5 years.
It could be seen from the above that the computation of minimum wage by the 7 CPC is prima facie wrong and computed on untenable premises and incorrect data. The minimum wage therefore requires re-computation and revision. Once the minimum wage gets revised, the fitment formula, the multiplication factor applied for determining the pay levels and the pay matrix itself will have to consequently revised.
Determination of Pay Level Minimum
It is seen that the 7th CPC has applied varying multiplication factors for different pay levels. The 6th CPC has taken the emoluments in the private sector to hike the salary of officers by applying different yardstick to compute the pay bands disturbing the vertical relativity while the 7th CPC has further accentuated the gap of differences in wages between officers and employees. This being unacceptable we urge upon adoption of uniform multiplication factor for determining pay levels.
2.    Revise the pay matrix basing upon the revised minimum wage and rounding off the stages to the next hundred. Accept the suggestion made by the Staff Side in its memorandum to 7 CPC for de-layering viz. to abolish the pay levels pertaining to GP 1900, 2400 and 4600.
In our memorandum to 7th CPC the staff side had requested for de-layering by abolition of Grade Pay of Rs 1900, 2400 & 4600. The pay levels pertaining to GP 1900, 2400 and 4600 may be abolished and merged with the next higher levels.
3.    Revise the rate of increment to 5 % and Grant two increments in the feeder cadre levels as promotion benefit.
The rate of increment has been pegged down to 3% by the 7th CPC. At this rate an employee will not be able to double his pay even after 30 years. The demand of the staff side to increase the rate of increment to 5% to be accepted.
Promotion from one cadre to another is a rare phenomenon in government services especially in lower grades. If one to be awarded only an increment amounting to 3% of pay, it might not become a sought after affair and will in fact act as a de-motivating factor. This apart, in most of the Govt. Departments, promotion is followed by posting to a different location.  Those who are posted to unclassified cities or from Metro cities to towns will financially suffer due to such mandatory transfer on promotion. This is because of the fact that the rate HRA, Transport Allowance etc vary from one station to another. The financial benefit on promotion must be, therefore, at least two increments i.e. 10% of the pay.
4.    Fill up all vacant posts by holding special recruitment  drive
5.    MACP to be treated as financial up-gradation, without any grading stipulation; to be provided on the basis of the promotional cadre  hierarchy of the concerned department; increase the number of MACP to five on completion of 8, 15,21,26 and 30th years of service.

6.    Upgrade the LDCs in all departments as UDCs for it is stated by the Commission that the Government has stopped recruiting personnel to  this cadre.
The cadre of LDC, after the introduction of MTS has presently overlapping functions. Most of the specific functions have also become obsolete on introduction of computerized diarizing and maintenance register. There is no specific need for this cadre in any of the offices. While future recruitment can be stopped, which the government has conveyed to the Commission, what has to be done to the existing cadre is not mentioned. It is therefore necessary that the existing incumbents be promoted as UDCs by upgrading all posts of LDC as UDCs.

b) Drivers in all Government offices to be granted pay scale on par with the drivers of the Lok Sabha
The question of Parity, as has been rightly mentioned by 7th CPC, is a settled matter. It is the Department of Personnel which the cadre controlling Department for CSS cadre that unsettles the parity every time. The recommendation to downgrade the CSS is however not acceptable. What is required is to grant higher pay levels at par with CSS ministerial and stenographer cadres and other similarly placed cadres in the field/subordinate offices and IA&AD & Organized Accounts cadres.
