"There is no justification of imposing income tax on DA," Shastri said while addressing a rally of NMC workers.  The NMC president also asked Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram to reconsider the practice.
He also said that income tax exemption limit should be raised to Rs five lakh from existing Rs two lakh.  Shastri, meanwhile, added that provision with regard to 20 per cent interim relief to the central and state government employees and pensioners, merger of 50 per cent of DA into basic pay/pension and enh…

SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION MUST BE SET UP FORTHWITH

SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION MUST BE SET UP FORTHWITH 

The recent statement of the Minister concerned in the Parliament, that the Govt does not propose to set up the seventh Pay Commission at this stage is most unjustified and frustrating for the Govt employees.
Fifth Pay Commission had recommended for a Pay Revision after every five years instead of the past practice to set it up after 10 to 13 years. But the Govt did not accept this recommendation.

The Fifth Pay Commission also recommended for Merger of DA after it crossed 50%. Govt accepted the same and belatedly implemented it from April 2004. But the Sixth Pay Commission did not favour even the Merger of DA after it crossed 50% and the Govt obvious followed suit and did not Merge the same when it crossed 50% in 1-1-2011 – in spite of the demand by all concerned.

As such, the existing Pay and Pension structure have lost all the relevance and is continuously eroding due to heavy inflation and defective system of compilation of Price…
