The NJCA is leading the negotiation over 7th Pay Commission on behalf of central government employees.
The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), aggrieved over the delay on higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, may call for nationwide strike if the Committee on Allowance fails to submit its final report. According to media reports, the Committee on Allowances is likely to submit its report on higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission to the Finance Ministry this week. But there is no official confirmation in this regard. It’s been almost nine months since the formation of the Committee on Allowances, but it is yet to submit its report. Meanwhile, the National Council Staff Side has called a meeting on May 2 of the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) to discuss the next course of action if the Committee on Allowance further delays report.
