The Delhi unit of the Coordination Committee of Central Government Employees and Workers has demanded a permanent wage review committee to review wages of government employees commensurate to price rise every five years. The Committee warned that government employees will be forced to go on strike if several of their demands, including wage revision, filling up of vacant posts, and reversal of outsourcing of government jobs to private firms, are not addressed immediately. The Coordination Committee of the employees had on April 28 decided to march to Parliament on July 26 in pursuance of a 14-point charter of demand warning that 50,000 people were expected to participate in it. 
Dearness Allowance : The Committee pointed out that Dearness Allowance had exceeded the limit of 50 per cent of the salary, but the Government was not taking steps to merge the DA with the basic salary. The employees said they were facing acute pressure due to Government posts lying vacant or being abolished, but the Government’s step to privatise or higher contracted workers to address the vacancies was “not in the interest of workers and leading to exploitation of the workforce


Note: The Co-ordination committee should be careful of the employees of organizations who are are not really government servants but extending support and  standing in the forefront of the agitation.  The employees who are drawing only the Pay Commission Scales should be allowed to join the committee.  Otherwise the spirit of real government servants will be faded.
