Its a good news for the Madhya Pradesh Government employees, as the state government has decided to go ahead with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations of increasing the salaries upto 14%. Almost 6.50 lac government employees in the state of MP will be benefited with this decision. The resolution was made by the MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan on Monday. After a year-long delay PM Narendra Modi finally gave nod to the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on due allowances and House Rent Allowances that will come into effect from 2017.
Finally A Pay Rise For Madhya Pradesh Govt. Staff
The decision of the Madhya Pradesh government to approve the 7th Pay Commission recommendations has given a bit of breather to the state government employees. It might be a meagre pay hike of 14% in the present incomes but at least it happened and it is of a lot of importance to the employees working in the government offices. The government has gone ahead with this decision after delaying it for one long year.
The recommendations of the 7the Pay Commission were put into effect in the state of Madhya Pradesh from January 1, 2016. The arrears due from the period of January 2016-June 2017 will now be cleared from the Financial Year 2018-2019 and will be paid in three instalments in May every year.
Financial Arrangements of The Govt. of Madhya Pradesh
With the increase in the salaries of almost 6.50 lac state employees, the financial burden of the Madhya Pradesh government will get increased drastically. The state government will now have to take out Rs 3,828 crore on annual basis from the exchequer and almost Rs 2,552 in the present financial year to smoothly execute the pay hike plan concerning 6.5 lac state government employees. In total, the arrears would cost the state government around 5,742 crores.
The Seventh Pay Commission Of India
The 7th Pay Commission’s constitution was approved by the 13th Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh in the year 2013 on 25th September. The Government of India went ahead to accept the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission to increase the salaries of the government employees by at least 14% on June 29, 2016, and that too after thinking and discussing it for six long months.
And today the Prime Minister of India though very late has finally approved the recommendation of 7th Pay Commission on due allowances as well relieving anxieties of almost 47 lac central government employees. Indian government’s Finance Minister in the past has considered the 14% pay hike a historical increase of salaries.
