Posted: 26 Aug 2008 03:16 AM CDT

With so much crude information available about Sixth Pay Commission,confusion is bound to arise. Even on my site with so many posts related to Sixth CPC, One may wonder what to read and what to leave & even what to read first. With the aim of making things simpler , I am summarizing the posts related to Sixth CPC here and will also try to indicate who should read what and in what order.

I will summarize posts in chronological order ,followed by description and notes (if any.)

The format would be :

Have patience and stay with me!!

1.> Sixth Pay Commission Report With Salary Calculator

Posted on 14-August-2008,This first post on CPC throws light on 14-August-2008 developments and updates. It contains basic information that was released by Govt. like min. Salary,holidays,allowances,payment of arrears. But its not very specific like it does nt provide discrete allowance in various categories which is covered in later posts.

Everyone should read this post as in later posts the information provided in this post is assumed to be already known to reader,only updates are highlighted and changes notified in later posts.


Posted on 15-August-2008, This second posts is based on a Press Release by PIB(Press Information Bureau).It contains the most important and significant lines which are always an “Important note” to all later posts:

The Cabinet has broadly accepted the recommendations of Sixth CPC with some modifications in the wake of representations received from various sections/Associations of Central Government employees.

These largely undeclared “minor modification” are exactly the epicenter of whole confusion. Govt. has not made these modifications public . Information keeps pouring in one time or another. It makes difficult for us to say anything with surety because who know what these “minor modifications” may have or may not have in store for us.

This post contains some specifics about Promotion/Defence/Doctors’s pay Scale.

Again,Do go through this post so that you have some specific information about how Govt. plans to implement Six CPC.
