7th pay panel recommendations ‘disappointing’, says RSS

New Delhi: RSS affiliate Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh today termed “disappointing” the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and said it will lead to brain drain from the country.

“The 7th Pay Commission report is disappointing, its fitment benefit is very less, it will lead to brain drain and would have a bad impact on the economy,” said Viresh Upadhyay, General Secretary of BMS.

He said that the recommendations submitted to the government this evening show that there is a huge gap between minimum and maximum.

“It has also not addressed the anomalies,” he said.

The Sangh affiliate had only last week warned the government of mass agitations if its decision on FDI was not immediately rolled back.

“BMS has strong objections on FDI hike, especially in retail and defence. We urge the government to call stakeholders to resolve their concerns. Failing that, we will be compelled to take to the streets (in protest),” Upadhyay had said.
