As part of Swachh Bharat initiative of the Prime Minister, NSS volunteers from Sona College of Technology and employees of the Salem Railway Division cleaned the premises at Salem Railway Junction on Saturday.

They cleaned the station premises and also educated the passengers on the importance of their cooperation in keeping the premises clean. They also distributed pamphlets and handouts containing various cleanliness messages.

They asked the passengers to drop the waste materials only in the dustbins kept in the premises and also not throw it on the tracks.

Also, passengers were asked not to throw waste materials from the moving train on to the platform. Handouts containing the timings of the Special Passenger Trains between Salem and Karur that are in operation were distributed among passengers with a view to let them know about the trains.

Volunteers said that though railway workers are taking every possible effort in keeping the premises clean, cooperation from the passengers is important. Hence, the awareness level among the passengers has to improve, they added.

Railway employees may get increased bonus this year, amount is expected to be doubled

First salary of 7th Pay Commission is expected on 1st April, 2016

New Delhi: The Seventh Pay Commission report is awaited, the new pay scales will be applicable to Central government employees with effect from January 2016.
This is a very rough average because for senior level officers, like the Cabinet Secretary or officials at the secretary level, the payback could increase by more than 50%.50 lakh central government employees and 56 lakh pensioners including dependents hope to get this gift from April next year. The revised pay scales are likely to be implemented retrospectively starting 1 January 2016.Arun Jaitley_2_1_0
Many commentators say that the average increase in basic fair pay for all government employees will be in the region of 40-45%.
As the Pay Commission numbers come through there could be a 30-40 per cent increase for each central government employee.
An increase of salary and allowances would boost middle class central government employees to spend more time with their families for marketing.
The economy would get a major boost from a pickup in consumption, resulting from an increase in salaries but the flip side to the hike will be a spike in inflation.

7th Pay Commission & Employee News Center: Armed forces again demand resolution of pay ‘anoma...NEW DELHI: The armed forces want at least five "core anomalies" in their salary structures to be resolved to establish the "correct baseline" for recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC), whose term has now been extended till December 31 by the government. 

While the heat and dust over one rank, one pension (OROP) is yet to settle, with a section of veterans rejecting the "diluted" version announced by the government on September 5, the serving personnel have their own deep-seated grouse over their eroding "status, parity and equivalence" as compared to their civilian counterparts. .............
