JCM STAFF SIDE WANTS TO MAKE AMENDMENTS IN THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF 7TH CPC
1) Clarification on Additional attempts and age relaxation in Civil Services Examination
2) Revision of Interest Rates for Small Savings Schemes for the Financial Year 2014-15 Announced
3) Inter se seniority of direct recruits and promotees – DOPT Instructions
4) Member, Natonal Council JCM raised strong objections against the ToR of 7th Pay Commission
1)The finance ministry on Tuesday effected a minor raise in interest rates on post office deposits.
Rates on one-and two-year fixed deposits have been hiked from 8.2% to 8.4%,while those on three-year FDs and five-year recurring deposits have been raised 0.1% to 8.4%.Five-year FDs will fetch 8.5% a year.The rates will be applicable from April 1.
The hike is in line with the recent trend in bank deposits,which fetch higher returns than those in POs.
PPF deposits will continue to earn 8.7%,translating into returns of 11.3% on annual basis as the accretion in the account is tax free.
2)We all know, 7th Pay Commission Terms of Reference was approved by Union Cabinet few days back and published in the Gazette of India.
Here is the comparison of 7th Pay Commission and sixth Pay Commission terms of References to get an idea about what the Government wants 7th Pay Commission to study and recommend as far as Pay and allowances and other service related matters of Central Government Employees.
It could be found that one of the main differences between these Central Pay Commissions’ Terms of References is Government’s reference for studying the need by Pay Commission for allowing Interim Relief. While 6th Pay Commission Terms of Reference has the specific mention about this requirement
However, there is no reference regarding Interim Relief that could be found in the 7th Pay Commission Terms of Reference. It implies that unlike it was specifically done in sixth pay commission terms of reference, Government did not refer 7th Pay Commission to study the possibility of allowing Interim Relief to Central Government Employees and Pensioners.
WHY THIS exclusion ?
1)Gazette Notification of resolution containing constitution and TOF of the 7CPC .
4) concessions to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in posts filled by Promotion by selection-posts within Group A

2)Modest Expectation for 50% DA Merger still on the cards
The expectations will not subside until the central government makes it clear whether 50% DA Merger will be approved or not. Though there were mixed news about whether 50% DA Merger is approved or not, Railway and Defence Federation’s Leaders told that the 50% DA merger was approved by the Cabinet.
One of the News Media also confirmed that 50% DA is approved by the cabinet. But so far any announcement in this regard has not been come from the Government. Some Leaders of the Federations told, ‘when we had a talk with them, initially the central government agreed in principle to merge the 50% of Dearness Allowance and its decision was expected from the cabinet meeting held yesterday evening. But we are unaware of the reason for the government not announcing its decision.’
Earlier reports claimed that the government was considering 50% DA Merger and increasing retirement age to 62. But a source close to official side said these will be a part of Terms of Reference of 7th Pay Commission and the Panel , however, can recommend this later
Everybody feels, still it is an incomplete picture, as the government has not declared it is done
