For the sake of
some friends who believe and argue what they have brought is gold, not paddy
husk, I wish to ask these -
government employees could demand and achieve merger of the entire D.A.
outstanding as on 31-12-2005 (2642 points) with their Basic Pay for fixing
revised Basic Pay with effect from 01-01-2006, why UFBU could not achieve
100% merger of outstanding D.A. at 3028 points, but instead settled for
merger of D.A. at 2836 points only, leaving 192 points in the process?
As I have been repeatedly
highlighting, it is the Basic Pay that determines the amount of DA, HRA,
Leave Encashment, Pension Commutation, Monthly Pension, Family Pension,
Gratuity and most importantly future pay
scales. Then, why did UFBU settle for merger of D.A. at a lower
AICPI? Does anyone have convincing answer?
Even for 10th
BPS, merger at 4440 points (vis-a-vis 4876 points) has been accepted
by UFBU and without any shame or guilt, our UFBU tomtom that it's a great
achievement. In this case too, 436 points have been sacrificed resulting in
a loss of Rs.4,000 per head, per month, on an average.
4. Similarly, making IBA to commit for implementing revised pay scales and
allowances with effect from 01-11-2012 is considered a huge victory. What is so
special or extra-ordinary in this? It is always that way from the beginning. The
revised pay scales will be implemented from the day following the date of expiry
of the previous settlement.

bank staff had residual D.A. of 7.20% (i.e.172 points in AICPI - 48 slabs) as on
01-11-2007, whereas at this point, D.A. of central government employees was at
9.00%. Now, as on 01-07-2014, D.A. of bank staff is forecast at 97.05% or
97.35%, whereas the D.A. of central government staff is forecast at 107%, thus
widening the gap gradually from 1.80% to not less than 9.65%.
remind once again, D.A. for central government employees is paid on the
aggregate of Basic Pay, Grade Pay and Transport Allowance. But, bank staff get
their D.A. only on their Basic Pay. So, both in terms of percentage and in
absolute terms, we suffer huge loss.
Now you tell me,
who is wiser?
