New Delhi: The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre might announce good news related to minimum pay of central government employees in the month of March.

The central government is likely to implement the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in March month. In a recent meeting of the National Joint Council of Action (NCJA) in New Delhi some proposals related to enhancing the minimum grade pay of central employees were discussed during meeting.

Though many associations of the central government are not aware of any such a proposal but at present, central employees get a minimum wage of Rs 18,000.

They are demanding a hike of up to Rs 8,000 in the minimum pay and increase in the fitment factor from 2.57 times to 3.68 times.

 

Let month of March come and good news wait for central government employees!:

 

As we all know that Lok Sabha elections just a few months away, the Modi government is leaving no stone unturned to woo its employees. If the minimum wage of the central employees does not see an increase, then their Dearness Allowance (DA) will definitely be increased.

According to some news reports said the Modi government is keen to increase the minimum pay of central government employees, but it will increase the burden on the public exchequer.

However, it is expected that the much-awaited decision by the central government is likely to be announced in the month of March. The Modi government has also stepped in to provide travel-related benefits to its employees in election season.

Now the Central employees will be able to travel through private airlines to visit the home and other parts of the country (Jammu and Kashmir and Andaman and Nicobar) under the LTC benefit.

TRAI recommends that shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme,Then everyone’s mobile number in India will change

TRAI recommends that shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme in case of mobile numbers. The regulator says that this new change will add a total capacity of 10 billion numbers.

TRAI, ( Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), on Friday released its latest recommendations to develop a ‘Unified Numbering Plan’ to ensure adequate number of resources for fixed lines aka landlines and mobile services in the country. This will cause the current phone number to change – the current mobile numbers will need to be applied “0” to dial from the fixed line connection. The regulator said in a statement that these recommendations are based on input from various stakeholders and discussions during the Open House Discussion (OHD). Of all the points encountered in the recommendations, one of the main points is to switch the digits from 10 to 11 in the case of regular mobile numbers. This means zero will be added next to the existing mobile number. However, new phone numbers may start with different digits.

Here,The recommendations are going to be shared, which can change the existing numbering system for both fixed line and mobile service.

  1. To call mobile numbers with a fixed line connection, it is mandatory to put “0” before the number. Please tell that it is not necessary to dial “0” to call a mobile number from a fixed line phone. According to the new recommendation, just as you dial an inter-service area mobile call from a fixed line phone, you must prefix the “0” to call the mobile phone within the service area as well.
  2. Shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme in case of mobile numbers – Another major recommendation by TRAI is to switch from 10 to 11 digits for mobile numbers, with the first digit being “9”. The regulator says that this new change will add a total capacity of 10 billion numbers.
  3. The number of mobile numbers distributed for the dongle should be converted to 13 digits – Like the numbers associated with our mobile phones, various devices such as dongles and data cards currently have a 10-digit numbering system. Now the new recommendation states that such devices should be increased from the current 10-digit to 13-digit.
  4. Moving fixed line numbers to sub-levels of “2” or “4” – Some operators had some time ago issued landline connections to numbers starting with “3”, “5” and “6”, which are now Not in service. TRAI recommends taking these closed connections to sub-levels of “2” or “4”. This will allow mobile operators to use these closed connection numbers for future mobile phone connections.
  5. All fixed line connections must come with the “0” dialing feature – currently, fixed line users who have opted for Subscriber Trunk Dialing (STD) are only given the “0” dialing feature. However, TRAI recommends allowing all fixed line customers to use the “0” dialing facility. This is necessary because mobile numbers will be required to dial from landline numbers with a “0” prefix.
