7th Pay Commission: Central govt employees to get hike but ‘below demand’

After much hue and cry, it seems something good is on the cards for the Central government employees as news are making rounds that the Narendra Modi government will raise the minimum pay of the CG employees but not as per their demand.

There will be an increase in the minimum pay but it will not be Rs 8,000 as demanded by the CG employees, rather it will be Rs 2000, reported the Sen Times citing finance ministry officials.

Reasons… elections are around the corner and the NDA government will try to calm down the brewing resentment among the central government employees.
Around 50 lakh employees expect the Modi government to pay heed to their demand and consider a hike in the present minimum pay recommended by the Seventh Pay Commission. They claim that the present basic pay is not enough and has failed to put any positive impact on their financial position.

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.
