Though the Central government employees are eagerly waiting for a hike in the minimum pay, the Narendra Modi government is yet to take a decision in this regard. However, all eyes are on the next Cabinet meeting where the issue is likely to be taken by the concerned minister.

Here are some of the latest 7th Pay Commission updates:

Hike in Travelling Allowance

The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) has decided to provide travelling allowance (TA) as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendation to its over 11,000 regular staff. It has also reportedly decided to provide uniform to over 12,000 of its contractual employees.

Meanwhile, the regular staff will have to surrender their destination passes to avail the TA benefit, DTC said.

Dismissal of PIL by Delhi High Court

The Delhi High Court dismissed a PIL seeking implementation of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in private unaided schools in the national capital last week.

A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said 'as and when any staff of these schools approaches the court, then only after hearing all stakeholders an order can be passed' and hence, the Court sees no reason to entertain the writ petition.

The plea had it mentioned that the 7th Pay Commission recommendations should be implemented to bring the pay, allowances and other benefits of staff in the private unaided schools on par with the government and Municipal Corporation-run schools' staff in the national capital.

Cease-Work Demanding Pay Revision

The teachers of Jadavpur University in Kolkata recently observed a cease work demanding full implementation of the revised UGC pay scale as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

The cease work was reportedly called the on November 19 and 20 and over 400 teachers launched a sit-in in front of the administrative building of the varsity.

Earlier in the month, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced that the teachers will get the revised UGC pay scale effective January 1, 2020, three per cent annual increment for the period January 2016-December 2019, instead of arrears.

Minimum Pay Hike

This is the long-standing demand of the Central government employees which the government is yet to be considered.

They have been demanding an increase in the fitment factor to 3.68 times. This will increase their present minimum pay by Rs 8,000.

It is worth mentioning that the Central government employees are presently getting a minimum pay of Rs 18,000. However, citing financial issues, they want the basic pay to be increased to Rs 26,000.
