Did you know how the 6th CPC Multiplication Factor of 1.86 was derived?

The 6th Pay Commission had recommended a Multiplication Factor of 1.74, but the Central Government chose to change it to 1.86. One of the reasons for this modification was the intense pressure from various Federations of Central Government Employees. It has to be mentioned at this point that all the federations had presented demands to the Government to raise the minimum basic pay to Rs. 10,000.
Exactly how did the Government arrive at 1.86? Here is an explanation how -

Let us assume the Basic Pay, as of 01.01.2006, as 100%. Let’s take the Dearness pay (post the 50% DA Merger) as 50%. Let us also take into account the 24% Dearness Allowance that was given before 01.01.2006.
If you add Basic Pay and Dearness Pay and calculate 24% of it, then you’d get 36%. (100 + 50 = 150 / 24 x 100 = 36)
100% + 50% + 36% = 186%
This number is being taken for calculations as 1.86.

At the time of 6th CPC Pay Fixation, the last drawn Basic Pay under 5th CPC was multiplied by 1.86 and rounded off. It was also explained that a new entity named Grade Pay was created and a sum total of this was the new Basic Pay.

Hence, it was impossible to consider 1.86 as the true yardstick. For example, for a basic pay of Rs. 3050…
3050 x 1.86 = 5680 (After rounded off)
Corresponding Grade Pay for 3050 is 1900,
Band Pay 5680 + Grade Pay 1900 = Basic Pay 7580
5th CPC basic pay = 3050
6th CPC basic pay = 7580
The multiplication factor number comes to 2.48.

It is not possible to take 2.48 as common for all basic pays. But, 2.48 was considered very low. That’s why we have used a bigger number to calculate in the 7th CPC’s Expected Pay Scale.

List of Allowances and Advances to be increased by 25% from 1.1.2011

100% D.A from January 2014 – Some Allowances and Advances Rise by 25%

The Fifth Central Pay Commission had recommended uniform neutralization of DA at 100% to employees at all levels and increase in DA calculation too, according to the 12 monthly average of AICPIN for Industrial Workers (1982=100) as on 1st January 1996, of 306.33.

The Linking Factor of 303.33 has now changed to 115.76. This was calculated as 4.63 in the 4th CPC.
It was due to this change that the Dearness Allowance has increased in recent years. The 6th Pay Commission had promptly calculated it and said that the true impact of price rise and inflation would only then be known.

It was also mentioned in the recommendations made by the 6th CPC that each time the Dearness Allowance touched 50%, certain Allowances and Advances should also be raised by 25%.
It is of common knowledge that according to these recommendations, when D.A touched 50% on 01.01.2011, DOPT issued orders to increase it by 25%.

Since the DA is calculated on the basis of price rise and inflation, this 25% raise was given in order to make it uniformly applicable to all the other Allowances and Advances. The Allowances and Advances mentioned in this are the Children’s Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy and Festival Advance.

As of now, the Central Government employee is entitled to claim 15,000 per annum per child under the Children’s Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy. An increase of 25% would mean that the amount would rise to Rs. 18,750 per year. Similarly, there are chances that the Festival Advance would increase to Rs. 4700. These could be confirmed only after the DOPT makes its official announcements.

The list mentioned below is explanatory and given in detail, along with explanations.

Delay in Govt Inquiry No Bar on Promotion

The Central Administrative Tribunal asked Tamil Nadu government to consider promoting an Indian Forest Officer to rank of Chief Conservator of Forests, observing that an officer could not be penalised for inordinate delay on the part of government in completing disciplinary inquiries against him.

IFS officer Ramachandra Pati joined as Assistant Conservator of Forests in 1985. He was promoted to Conservator of Forests in 2004. He became eligible for promotion to Chief Conservator of Forests in 2010. However, disciplinary proceedings for his alleged shortfall in performance under Tamil Nadu Afforestation Programme were initiated in 2005 and 2006, said Pati in his petition. These proceedings were not completed after a lapse of around five years. In his current petition Pati pleaded that inquiry report be opened and government act on the recommendations.

Countering his arguments, the government said the delay was because of Pati’s refusal to cooperate with the inquiry authorities. But the inquiry had been completed

Further, “if an officer with pendency charges of a grave nature is promoted to the next level without reference to the disciplinary proceedings, there will be no meaning in initiating such proceedings”, it said adding the “punishment of censure” was imposed on Pati.

The bench of judicial member K Elango and administrative member P Prabhakaran disposing of the petition asked the government to consider Pati for promotion as an officer cannot be held liable for delay of an inquiry.
