Minimum Wage as per 6th CPC method
Pay in Pay Band + Grade Pay + % DA + Compensation factor based on rise in NNP at factor Cost.
Calculation of compensation factor
|Year||Per Capita NNP at factor cost At constant price||Increase over previous year|
|% Increase of NNP at factor cost on Constant Prices for the period of ten years||65%|
* Assumed figures as per average increase
Proposed Minimum Pay w.e.f. – 1.1.2016
|Minimum Basic Pay + DA 140%+ Compensationfactor 65% of BP + DA|
|Minimum Basic pay after VI CPC||Rs.7000|
|Projected DA 140% (as on 1.1.2016)||Rs.9800|
|Compensation factor (65%)||Rs.10920|
|Proposed Minimum Pay||Rs.27720 or Rs.28000|
|Proposed Number of times increase of BP||3.96|
Proposed Minimum & Maximum Pay based on post 6th CPC formula
|EXISTING PAY||PROPOSED PAY @ 3.96 TIMES (ROUNDED OFF) OF EXISTING PAY|
|Pay in Pay Band||Grade Pay||Pay in Pay Band||Grade Pay|
Minimum Pay shall be increased from Rs.7000 to Rs.28,000.
Maximum Pay Shall be increased from Rs.80,000 to 3,20,000.
Intermediate Pays shall be fixed in the same way.
Upgradation shall be granted to specific categories on functional & other related justification.
Determination of Maximum Pay First & then arriving Minimum Pay in the ratio of 9:1
Maximum Pay shall be fixed first as per rise of NNP and then the Minimum pay in the ratio of 9:1 thereof and the Intermediate Pays shall be fixed.
Maximum Pay = Rs.80,000 x Compensation factor based on rise in NNP at factor Cost. = 80000 x 3.96 = Rs.316800 or Rs.3,20,000.
Therefore, Minimum Pay works out to be Rs.320000 / 9 = 35555 or Rs.35500.
