Multiplication Factor / Fitment Formula recommended by 7th Pay Commission
7th CPC recommended the Multiplication Factor proposed is 2.57
Fitment : The starting point for the first level of the matrix has been set at ₹18,000. This corresponds to the starting pay of ₹7,000, which is the beginning of PB-1 viz., ₹5,200 + GP 1800, which prevailed on 01.01.2006, the date of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations.
Hence the starting point now proposed is 2.57 times of what was prevailing on 01.01.2006. This fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 on account of DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay. Accordingly, the actual raise/fitment being recommended is 14.29 percent.
Fitment Factor is a common multiplication number, which is used for arriving a common result. More than 30 lakh employees are working in Central Government Services.
The 6th Pay Commission recommended 1.86 as Fitment Factor in its report. Whereas, the 7th Pay Commission has recommended common fitment benefit applied for all employees as 2.57.
Fitment Factor in 7th CPC: The starting point for the first level of the matrix has been set at 18,000. This corresponds to the present starting pay of 7,000, which is the beginning of PB-1 viz., 5200 + GP 1800, on the date of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations. Hence the starting point now proposed is 2.57 times of what was prevailing on 01.01.2006. This fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees.
Great mistake done by 7 th CPC in case of pay upgradation from GP 4200/- to 4600/-. Employees with 9 yera experience will get same basic pay as a newcomer
It is a welcome one as allowances have been grouped and brought under a different formula.
Bur a great disappointment concerned to Para-Medical like Pharmacists whose revised RR,s notified by Gazette by Union of India is not incorporated OR taken into consideration OR not even brought on par to technical cadre scales as recommended in 5thCPC which is not rectified and implemnted till date.
It highlights that the 7th CPC in majority cases has just copied and pasted the 6th CPC recommendations without considering any notifications and records submitted to the Commission by federations and associations.
Hope this is rectified soon with justification by all concerned and the 7th CPC takes into account the revised RR’s of 4 year degree in Pharmacy for recruitment as also mentioned and observed by 7th CPC only under RR’s for Andaman and Nicobar islands.
Was there not a need to bring parity in RR’s for all Ministries under Union of India as per Gazette notification.
The 7th CPC upgraded on its own qualification of Dressers as 12th with working experience of three years.
But in case of Pharmacists where allready the qualification is upgrade by Government of India to 4 year Degree in Pharmacy OR 2 yr Diploma in Pharma+ 3 months internship + Registration with PCI + 2 years experience is not at all taken into account.
Even the error of misinterpretation of recommended pay scale of 1400-2300 revised to 5000-8000 by 5th CPC is not rectified by 7th CPC inspite of lapse of 20 years passed of recommended scales on parity to all technical diploma holders and also same observed by the 6th CPC also but not taken into consideration till date.
Expecting to be rectified with upgraded pay scales soon.
