 Please go through the tables provided as attachment on . 

Compare 6th CPC Rates as per table 2.21 of the 6th CPC report , Consumer Price Index Rates published by Government of India  and Market Rates prevailing as on today, for example today the actual price price of Rice is Rs 48 to Rs 52 per kg in Bangalore , but as per 6th CPC computation it is only Rs 18 per kg as per Consumer Price Index of 2001  it is only Rs 24 to Rs 28  per kg,  this shows an increase of 270% over the 6th CPC prices (table number 2.21). almost all articles have shown an increase  over 200%.  Due to failure of monsoon & diesel price increase the prices will go up further , but we will be compensated partially only next year as due to faulty DA formula . 

The actual DA should have been 150 to 180 % range not just 80% as on 1/1/2013 paid to us . The Consumer Price Index of 2001 which was at 115 points as on 1/1/2006 should have been at 300 points rather than at 219 points as on 1/1/2013.

Actual Price Rise  is 200%
DA is 80% as on 1.1.2013

The 6th CPC while recommending the Minimum Salary- Analysis & Recommendations vide 2.2.15 

The Commission, however,agrees that the norms set by the 15th International Labour Conference (ILC) are appropriate for computing minimum salary. It
is also observed that the minimum salary is applicable at the time a person joins the Government which will usually be at a young age when a person may be just married and will not have responsibility of parents or many children. Accordingly, the family unit for minimum salary can only be taken as three. The Fifth CPC had also taken the average number of consumption at the age of entry as three. To this extent, the Commission is in agreement with the method adopted by the Staff Side for computing the minimum salary. Certain modifications are, however, necessary in the computations used by the staff Side. The minimum salary would need to be computed taking into account the prices as on 1.1.2006, being the date from which the revised pay scales are going to take effect. Government provides separate housing allowance, education allowance and medical facilities. As such, separate provision for the same cannot be made in the minimum salary. Keeping these modifications in view, as per the formula used by the JCM, Staff Side; minimum salary should be in the vicinity of Rs.5479 per month as on 1.1.2006. Detailed working by which the figure of Rs.5479 has been derived is at Table 2.2.1. The Commission is, however, recommending a higher minimum salary keeping in view their emphasis on higher skill levels and multi-skilling for all Government jobs. Accordingly, the running pay bands recommended by the Commission prescribe the minimum salary of Rs.6660 (Rs.4860 as basic pay + Rs.1800 as grade pay to be counted as pay for all purposes) in the lowest grade of the Pay Band PB 1. At the time of implementation of this Report in 2008, the gross minimum salary in A 1 cities (with reference to the minimum PB 1 Pay Band) will be around Rs.10,000 once benefits of HRA, Transport Allowance, Education Allowance, etc. are included. This, incidentally, corresponds to the minimum salary demanded by the Staff Side."

Today we require a minimum salary of Rs 20,000/- taking into the present prices into account, todays wages works out to just Rs 12000/- including DA hence 50% increase in salary is required.


I request your kind self to take up the matter.

Comradely yours
