There has been a word that government is thinking of making 7th Pay Commission the last CPC in the country. As per some of the reliable sources, there will be no 8th Pay commission next year. The government has been formulating the salaries as well as pensions of the central government employees for many years now. The government is also planning to revise the salaries of central government employees and pensioners once the DA that is Dearness Allowance crosses 50 percent.
7th Pay Commission Recommends Salary Hike
As 7th pay commission might be the last CPC in the country, it has been trying really hard to increment the salaries of 4.8 million employees along with 5.2 million pensioners. Instead of the making CPC next year, the government is planning to revise the central government employees salaries once the Dearness Allowance reached above 50 percent. As per some of the reliable sources, the basic objective of CPC is to keep Central Government employees salaries in the mark with the prices in the market. Instead of formulating 8th Pay commission, the government has drifted to manage the salaries through the DA (Dearness Allowance). Soon after the decision of 7th PAy commission being last CPC is finalized the salaries and allowances of the Central Government employees and pensioners will be decided by the department of the expenditure.
The department of Expenditures will be responsible to regularly monitor salaries and allowances of all the central government employees once the 10-year monotony of CPC is officially broken next year. The department will be responsible to submit reports for pay hike when DA crosses 50 percent. The reports will directly go to Finance Minister. According to some sources, 7th Pay commission might be the last CPC appointed by the government to regularly managing the salaries of all the central government employees and pensioners.
In future, after the 7th Pay commission, the work of managing the salary hikes and pensions will become the role of the Department of expenditure. Currently, 7th pay commission is working on progressing the minimum salary for the central government employees. It has been in news that government is planning to drop the idea of minimum pay hike recommended by 7th Pay commission.
