They complained that they did not receive enough in the last year of the Pay Research Bureau (PRB) on October 9. This time, they got what they expected. In the first line, we find the primary school teachers.
"We got everything we asked for," says Vinod Seegum, president of the Government Teachers' Union (GTU). "This is the culmination of a historic battle that began 30 years ago," says the union.
Finally, primary school teachers saw their wages be aligned with their secondary colleagues. If the report Aujayeb allowed them to spend Rs 11,200 to Rs 13,100 for those who are just entering the profession, the report Dev Manraj done much better.
Now, a person who made his first year as a teacher in the primary key net Rs 17 675, an increase of Rs 4575. The teacher salary at retirement has increased from Rs 26,400 in 2008 to Rs 36,575, an increase of Rs 10,175.
The pay of lecturers school and school teachers and inspectors have evolved in these parameters.
Allocations have also taken the elevator. A schoolmaster at a ZEP touched Rs 1000 if a preschool unit was attached to the school. Now, it is Rs 2000. Allowances monitoring CPE exams and proofreading experience, thanks to Manraj report, an annual increase of 5% Rs.
"Nobody had as much as we," says Vinod Seegum, which states that even when this is "the fruit of a long struggle that we conducted."
The other category of workers who displayed a smile at the moment is that of nurses. Dev Manraj gave them up between Rs 1175 and Rs 3275, not to mention increases in various benefits they already receive.
"The nurses said they are happy with what they had, even if the benefits they received, create frustration at other categories of workers in the health sector," says Radhakrishna Sade, President of the Government Services Employees Association.
Ditto for the police constables who spends Rs 12,500 to Rs 14,275 per month for those who enter the police force and Rs 27,750 to Rs 30,575 for constables who arrived at the top of the pay scale.
Radhakrishna Sadien puts things. "Many of them have been happy, but this is not the case for everyone. Others are more mixed. "
A new report to correct the anomalies in the requested
This report on the errors, omissions and anomalies Pay Research Bureau (PRB) "has attracted a lot of frustration," says Radhakrishna Sadien. The Government Services Employees Association organized a special general meeting on Saturday to discuss the problems that the document signed Dev Manraj has raised.
"Many officials saw that there was no improvement. This report has created other anomalies, "says union leader. "We will ask the Prime Minister that Dev Manraj to complete its work. "
Among the grades that are left-nots, according to GSEA, there are confidential secretaries, officers of the Social Security, the Higher Executive Officers, firefighters and even the laboratory of the Department of Education and the Minister of Agro-industry.
Mohun Aujayeb: "We had to take into account the economic context"
The "Errors, Omissions & Anomalies" report Dev Manraj allowed employees of Public Service to have a new salary increase. However, it should be noted that for the preparation of its report, which was released in October 2012, the former director of the Pay Research Bureau had to take into account an important aspect. Including the difficult economic environment.
"In other countries, civil servants' salaries are frozen. Here we have given the maximum possible employees of the Public Service and to restore as much as possible the purchasing power. To grant the wage increase, I had to look into several points, "said Mohun Aujayeb. The former director of PRB was in fact granted an increase of 22% based on prevailing wages from 2008.
This, based several factors. First, there is the inflation rate. But in the calculation to determine the salary increase to be given to different grades of employees of the Public Service, the former director of PRB also considered another aspect that is 'market value' of employees and also is a 'job evaluation'. However, on the other hand, Dev Manraj himself has given officials an increase of 22% based on wages that were in force on 30 December last year.
The salary increase will be paid retroactively from January 2013 effect. It should be emphasized that this is a political decision of the government.
Comparison Chart - Wage since 2003
Since the report of the Pay Research Bureau in 2003, many employees of different grades of the public service who have seen their wages more than double. It must be mentioned that these salaries do not include the many benefits and other benefits in addition to the salary of civil servants.
There are many examples. A primary teacher who started in 2003 touched Rs 8,025 while a late career educator touched Rs 15,000. These respective salaries increased to Rs 17,675 and Rs 36,575 with the final adjustments. The calculation clearly shows a difference of 120.2% for those starting and 143.8% for those approaching retirement. In the police force, it's the same scenario. The starting salary of a decade ago has increased by 133.1% if we consider the last increase granted by Dev Manraj. The salary of the Commissioner of Police, meanwhile, increased by 140% over the year to reach Rs 144,000 today.
A general worker who began his career now receives 54.7% more than his colleague who started in 2003. A nurse who joined the service now reaches 72.4% more than that started ten years ago.
A Principal Assistant Secretary will now be paid Rs 30,375 more than if he had attained this position ten years ago. Another example is the Electoral Commissioner who sees his salary increase of Rs 69,000 over time, while the Chief Judge for his part, was entitled to a salary increase of Rs 108,000 in a decade.
