Further hike in the minimum pay of the Central government employees as against the recommended hike by the 7th Pay Commission has become a matter of hope and disappointment - sunrise gives birth to hope and sunset vehemently crushes it.
However, the same has been repeated again as the Modi government is not going to make any announcement related to the minimum pay hike before the end of the festive season.
Besides, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had also promised on June 30, 2016 to hike the minimum pay of the CG employees and he also reportedly reiterated it in Rajya Sabha on July 19, 2016.
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.
Of all, the Central government employees still hope that the Centre will consider their demand and some up with an announcement in this regard soon.
