Earlier this year when the government announced that there will be no minimum pay hike for central government employees under 7th pay commission, huge disappointment stuck the CG employees. Recently, the news has struck the Internet that this motion of increasing the minimum pay hike under 7th CPC (7th Pay commission) is still live and is going to be implemented soon.
50 Lakh employees might get the hike in their minimum pay under 7th CPC in August
Yes! You read it correctly our government is moving forward with its plan of incrementing the minimum pay and fitment factor of 50 lakh central government employees pan India under 7th pay commission. As per the media reports this decision is made in context with the coming 2019 elections. The employees who were earlier under the impression of getting no basic pay hike are now glowing with the ray of hope after hearing this news.
2019 Elections might turn out to be the happiest moment for CG employees
As the elections are approaching, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fanning out ways to impress people and make them believe in him. Included in this process is the minimum pay hike under the 7th Pay Commission for central government employees. This hike was promised months back to the employees and the decision of not passing this ordinance was taken by the government.
However, this news of passing this issue of minimum pay hike under 7th Pay commission has made Lakhs of unhappy employees happy. No matter if it is an election stunt of the government or a genuine ordinance, employees seem to be really happy with the news.
Let us hope this time government keeps its promise and increase the minimum pay as per the demands of the employees. Earlier 7th pay commission recommended that minimum pay must be increased to Rs.18,000. Right after the recommendation put forth by 7th CPC, employees claimed that they need minimum pay hike of Rs. 26,000.
With so many ups and down and a lot of waiting it seems that 2019 elections might act as a catalyst to the implementation of the minimum pay hike under the 7th pay Commission in the coming month of August.
