Consequent on adoption of the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC) with effect from January 1, 2006, the Confederation of All Nagaland State Services Employees’ Association (CANSSEA) has urged the State government to implement the 6th pay commission’s scales accepted by the Government of India and applicable to the State of Nagaland, w.e.f January 1, 2006. CANSSEA president Dr. K Solo and joint secretary Dr. IP Khala in a representation to the State chief secretary drew the attention of the State government to the Government of India’s notification No. GSR 622 (E) published in the extraordinary National Gazette dated August 29, 2008, relating to implementation of the 6th pay commission, and suggested the following points for implementation of the same in Nagaland: (I) Revised pay bands/pay grade: That all revised pay bands and grade pays for posts carrying present scale in group ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ as indicated in Annexure I be implemented without any departure/deviation. In the case of State scales viz. S 7, S 9, S 12 and S 15, for which the corresponding pay bands/pay scales are not available in the 6th CPC, CANSSEA suggested that the State may retain them, if deemed necessary, by way of structuring corresponding pay bands/scales and grade pay at appropriate time. (II) Fixation of initial pay in revised pay structure: (a) The principle governing the fixation of initial pay in the revised pay structure was rational and introduction of multiplying factor 1.86 to arrive at revised basic pay could help the employee with better emolument pattern. (b) Discontinuation of merger of dearness allowance (DA) with basic pay as recommended by the 6th CPC was acceptable as it had nothing to do with release of two regular installments of DA at suitable percentage as on 1st January and 1st July every year. (c) Non practicing allowance (NPA) to doctors at existing rate of 25% pay band (+) grade pay subject to the condition that the pay plus NPA do not exceed Rs. 8,500 per month with other condition of qualification remaining same as suggested by 6th CPC. (d) Three financial upgradation under assured career promotion scheme (ACPS) after 10, 20 and 30 years against the Commission’s recommendations of such two upgradations. (e) Rate of increment at 3% over pay plus grade pay annually against 2.5% as recommended by 6th CPC. (f) Performance related incentive scheme (PRIS), which is a variable component of salary, will benefit the employee financially. (g) Payment of house rent allowance (HRA) @ 10% (basic pay plus NPA) against the current rate of 7.5%. (h) Reintroduction of special compensatory (remote) locality allowance with enhanced rate. (i) Introduction of transport allowance (j) Children education allowance of Rs. 12,000 per child per annum to maximum of two children and hostel subsidy of Rs. 3,000 per child per month to maximum of two children, be paid to government employees. CANSSEA also suggested raising of insurance coverage to offset effect of inflation, enhancement of maternity leave from existing 135 days to 180 days restricted to two children and granting of at least 730 days leave to women employees for taking care of upto two children. (III) Pensionary benefits of employees: Implementation of the Commission’s recommendation that all pensioners be allowed fitment benefit equal to 40% and additional quantum of pension as well as family pension to older/family pensioners.
