The NJCA met today. The unanimous conclusion is that the 7 CPC recommendations are totally disapointing. The CPC has recommended Rs 18,000/- as minimum wage by mutilating the 15 ILC norms which is totally unacceptable. NJCA demands correction in the calculation of minimum wage. (This will naturally make the fitment formula move upwards).
The claim of CPC that increase of 14.5% is granted is totally wrong as the actual increase is only 14.29%.
Reduction in HRA is, proposal to restrict pay to 80 percent in the 2nd year of CCL are quite retrograde.
Press statement is being issued separately.
