CPI(M) urges Central government to reject pay panel proposals

The 19th Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) called upon the Central government on Tuesday not to accept the Sixth Pay Commission's recommendations that pertained to the abolition of Group D posts and the corporatisation of the railways and defence production establishments.

Deliberations on the fourth day of the Congress expressed concern over the recommendation for the abolition of posts that would eliminate 12 lakh posts in the Central government service itself. This would mean contracting or outsourcing of regular jobs in various departments.

Salary rise recommendations were "grossly discriminatory" against employees in the departments, and also against the jawans and lower-level employees in the defence establishments.On the the recommendations on impacted wages/salaries of State government employees, the party Congress demanded that the Centre grant at least 50 per cent of the additional funds required for all the State governments.

For special category States in the North-East, it should be at least 90 per cent for consequential revision of wages/salaries for employees and teachers.
