After the Dussehra disappointment, it seems the good news is on the cards for the Central government employees as reports are there that they will get their demand related to further hike in the minimum pay fulfilled after much hue and cry.
The Narendra Modi-led NDA government has reportedly taken a decision to increase the fitment factor of about 50 lakh CG employees; however, it will make the announcement sometime in January next year.
The government has already finalised the pay hike plan and it will be in line with the demand of the CG employees, ZeeBiz.Com reported, adding that the Modi government may make the announcement on January 26.
Besides, rumours are also making rounds that there will be an increase in the minimum pay but it will not be Rs 8,000 as demanded by the CG employees but it will be around Rs 2000.
The Central government employees are presently getting a minimum pay of Rs 18,000 which they say not enough to have any impact on their financial position. 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.
So, the Central government employees will have to wait for more before the Modi government come up with the announcement of pay hike beyond what was recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.
