Cabinet clears recommendations of 7th Pay Commission

New Delhi, Jun 29 (PTI) Recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission got the Cabinet nod today, which will benefit over one crore government employees and pensioners.

The decision to this effect was taken in a meeting which was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, sources said.

The pay panel, in November last year, had recommended a 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels — the lowest in 70 years. The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

The government in January had set up a high-powered panel under the Cabinet Secretary to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission that will have a bearing on remuneration of nearly 50 lakh central government employees and 58 lakh pensioners.

The entry-level pay has been recommended to be raised to Rs 18,000 per month, from the current Rs 7,000, while the maximum pay, drawn by the Cabinet Secretary, has been fixed at Rs 2.5 lakh per month from the current Rs 90,000.

While the Budget for 2016-17 did not provide an explicit provision for implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, the government had said the once-in-a-decade pay hike for government employees has been built in as interim allocation for different ministries.

    The misrepresentation of facts for assimilation of general public is very much annoying. The truth is: the present pay of a class IV staff is R.7000-added to this is his current
    DA Rs.8370/-(at present 119 percent)
    In all he receives Rs15370/- now .against this ,the Govt. is adding a measly sum of Rs.2630/- only as
    fixation to Rs. 18000/- Is this not
    cheating the staff and confusing the public ?The employees were waiting for ten long years for this pittance,whereas bank employees are getting their wages revised every two years and MPs and ministers every five years .If this is not bias aginst the employees , then what else this is ?
