7th Pay Commission: Central Govt Employees’ minimum pay hike next month?
The demand of the Central government employees for a 3.68 times fitment factor hike or an increase in the minimum pay to Rs 26,000 is yet to be met by the Modi government. However, the CG employees are likely to get some good news next month.
The government is not avoiding any issue or demand of the employees. Several things are taken into account, from inflation to its overall impact on the economy of the country, before taking such a decision that will empty crores from the government exchequer, said an official.
On the other hand, the resentment among the Central government employees is brewing as recently when a resolution was passed by a employees’ union for protest, the NDA government warned the employees of pay cut and stern action if found absent from duty.

Neither did the government paying heed to our demands nor is it showing any sign of consideration towards it. And now it is trying to suppress our voice by issuing warning. We are losing hope and have no expectation on this government, lamented a CG employee.

“We are waiting for the 2019 general elections when a change in the government will take place and our woes will be heard. This is not the party that we had voted to power,” he added.
The Central government employees are presently getting a minimum pay of Rs 18,000. They are demanding a hike of Rs 8000- Rs 26,000- an increase in the fitment factor by 3.68 times from the existing 2.57 times.
