**7th CPC Multiplication Factor Clarification**

After the release of 7th CPC notification, there has been some confusion on the air about the multiplier percentage (%) which should be used to calculate the revised basic pay.

We have gone through the report and believe the confusion is created because of the below matrix (Table 4: Rationalisation Applied in the Present Pay Structure) which is displayed in the page no 73 of the report, where it shows different multiplying factor for different Pay Band and Grade Pay.

**However, in Page 77 (5.1.28 – Pay Fixation in the New Pay Structure) the commission wants every employee to multiply his/her basic pay with a factor of 2.57 and match the nearest highest value corresponding to their Pay Brand and Grade Pay.**

**Also, refer (5.1.29) in Page 77, it gives below the calculation method and also how employees should apply the new pay structure**

**We believe the multiplying factor is 2.57 for the existing employee is because of the example which is also used in the report, do refer the page no: 78, Example I.**

**After applying the multiplication factor of 2.57, the output value should be referred in the fitment matrix as elaborated in the example**

**In other examples which are illustrated in the report also highlight the usage of 2.57 as multiplying factor for the current employees.**

If you look at the Example II, they have referred to any Employee “T” in GP “4200” and used the multiplying factor as 2.57, however if we were supposed to use the Table 4 (Table 4: Rationalisation Applied in the Present Pay Structure) then the multiplication factor should have 2.62 which is not been applied and hence we believe the multiple factor is 2.57.

With the above example and the content we believe that multiplying factor for the existing employee should be 2.57 and our calculator is been built on this basis.

Dr. G.D.Gupta says

In the 7cpc ,nothing is mentioned about Rs 6000/-,7000/-8000/- and 9000/-grade pay and the corresponding pay matrix, please clarify and how the calculation of basic pay take place for pre- 2016, pre-2006 and pre-1996 pensioners.

Pre-2006 and pre-1996 pensioners had been at the maximum disadvantage, by fixation at the minimum of the corresponding scale.

Anomalies have not yet been solved, please clarify, formula for fixation along with the notional benefit.

This clarification is wrong. With this, an employee who joins in August 2015 will get lesser pay (10%) than his junior joining in January 2016.

my basic 18150 and g p 4200 what will be my total salary on 1 1 2016

Dr. N S Inamdar says

I have gone through the entire report and I am not convinced with multiple factor 2.57 to 2.72 levels. Commission tried to explain the calculation of 2.57 factor assuming the DA rate 125% from Jan16. Unfortuntly multiple factor above 2.57 are neither explained nor justified any where and are totally discrimination on entry level pay bonds. It is also surprising PB1 = 2.57, PB2=2.62, PB3=2.67, PB4=2.57 and PB5=2.72 and on words. Here multiple factor have drop the progression factor in particular this PB 4. This is all not justified on any principle. We suggest to have 2.8 for all just like annual increments of 3% uniform for all.

Parasram says

I retired on 31.1.2011 as inspector from Delhi police. My grade pay was 4600 in p.b. 2. My basic pension is 11835. What is my basic pension as per 7th pay commission.

Tapas Chakraborty says

Label variation may be reduced, from the higher label to lower label by 0.01 in factor, as because every Govt. employee is having right to survive in this inflationary market.

Peareylal says

My revised basic pension is 14497.00 now( ,wef 1.1.2006) I retired from Central Govt in june 2002.

Basic pay at the time of retirement—-12600.00

My pay scale at that time was 10000—-325—–15200.

Increments earned in that scale—–8

Grade pay—-6600.

Pay band—–15600-39100.

SOMI says

Sir, The multiplication factor of 2.57 should have been made at least 2.87 up to Group B because the revision has come after 10 years and it is for another 10 years. Moreover, without settling the anomalies of 6th CPC, like proper pay fixation for merged scales & equal initial pay promotees and recruits etc., the full benefits of 7th CPC cannot enjoy the GP-B employees who are in the subordinate/field offices. Therefore the Govt. may kindly clear the pending 6th CPC Anomalies to avoid court cases.

Dr. V.B.Naidu says

Dear sir/Madam, In the report section 5.1.37, it is explained with the following example, but there is no clarity. please go through the following one

“For instance, if two persons drawing pay of Rs.53,000 and Rs.54,590 in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the person drawing pay of Rs.53,000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1,36,210 and the person drawing pay of Rs.54,590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of level 15 in the pay of Rs.1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the person drawing pay of Rs.54,590 will get fixed in second cell of level 15 in the pay of Rs.1,48,500”.

If so, some ‘K’ may drawing Rs.56, 230 (one increment to Rs.54, 590) in the same G.P Rs.10, 000, then the pay of ‘K’ is on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will get Rs.1, 44,511.10. In this case please clarify the new pay of ‘K’ (in which place the ‘K’ may be), likewise for next increment holder and so on……..

The uniform multiplicative factor creates lot of confusion in fixing of new scales. So I request the concerned authorities to clarify/rectify all these things before implementing the new scales.
