7th Pay Commission Allowances Committee: Top 10 Developments – www.7thpaycommissionnews.in
Does the Allowance Committee adopt any lackadaisical approach in its work?
As of now, the Allowance Committee Report is the most expected report by Central Government Staffs.
The Federation Leaders have lost their Grip over Government to settle their demands. The Federations have erred by accepting the Government decision to constitute Committee to examine Allowances. They however should have insisted Government to implement the 7th CPC Recommendations before constituting committee for Allowances.
It seems that the delay in submitting Allowance Committee Report is merely an unwanted procrastination.
That is why question was raised in Parliament that if any steps taken to ensure that the committee does not adopt any lackadaisical approach to complete its work. [See the Question and Answer regarding Allowance Committee]
The question itself has raised many questions about the interest of the Government to settle the heart burning issue’s of CG staff.
The Federation leaders those who are attending the Allowance Committee meeting used to say their cadres that the committee is not ready to decide anything on their own. The members of the committee were always telling that your views are taken and it would be conveyed to Government. They are not even ready to express their opinion about the Federation Demands.
Due to this mess up central government employees are loosing considerable amount of money they entitled to get from Allowances from 1.1.2016.
