Circular No. 23/2013-16                                                                                          Dated – 02.04.2015

Dear Comrade,

We invite your kind attention to the synopsis of the discussions the staff side had with the 7th CPC on 23rd and 24th March, 2015. You will notice there from that the discussions were cordial and the staff side had been able to present their case admirably well.  You must have also noticed that the 7thCPC has categorically stated that they would go by Dr. Aykhrod formula in arriving at the minimum wage. However, they were a little skeptical of the rates quoted by us.  As you are aware we have taken the rates from the information we have collected through our units in the 8 Metro Cities.  Since this is likely to be the bane of contention at the time of finalization of the report, we must be able to establish that the rates other than the one we had submitted is not acceptable to us being bereft of the benefit of retail prices ruling at the relevant point of time.  In order to bolster our argument, we would like our leaders especially in the following cities and in other places to purchase the following articles from a reputed Mall as also from a normal provision store with bills duly signed by the owners of the retail outlet and send over to the Confederation CHQ immediately. The bill should bear the signature, the rate per kg. and the signature or seal of the concerned establishment.  Please treat this as most urgent and a task of serious nature for the rates adopted  by the 7th CPC will have far reaching consequences if not contested at the appropriate time. 

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,
(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General.
