As per the latest update on the stretched topic of the minimum pay hike recommended by 7th Pay commission, the decision is told not to be final yet. According to some relative sources, there are still some chances to evidence the hike in the minimum pay for the central government employees. Although the matter has been dragged for a long time by the government, 7th Pay commission has been working really hard to bring the change.
7th Pay commission Still Can Bring Hike in Minimum Pay
According to the latest updates and following the news of 7th Pay commission, the decision of the government to not deliver well on its word of incrementing the minimum pay and Fitment Factor of Central government employees was due to the friction between the Union Cabinet and employees on a certain matter of concern. After the revised minimum pay, the unsatisfied employees of the central government has been poking 7th Pay commission to increment the minimum pay hike from Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 26,000.
It’s been months that the government is dragging this issue. There are many reliable sources that have come forth saying that the chances of incrementing the minimum pay for CG employees are still there. Also, according to them the reason behind the rejection of the 7th Pay commission recommendation was the persisting issues between the government and employee union.
There has been a state of confusion regarding this issue between the Union and the government. Already the hike has been granted to the CG employees this year from Rs. 7000 to Rs. 18,000. The government was ready to initiate the minimum pay hike from Rs. 18000 to Rs. 21000 on the recommendation of the 7th Pay commission.
Two months back the government waved green signal towards the decision of incrementing the minimum pay hike for the government employees including Civil and Defence class. This was then that the Union Cabinet demanded a detailed report regarding the matter from NAC in October. It is December now and there has been no progress from Pay Commission and recently the word came out that the decision has been changed and there is no change that is going to be implemented. This disappointment has led the Civil employees and Defence employees to sit on an indefinite strike. After the news of the strike, now the word has come forth that the issue has not been dismissed by the government and there are still chances that the 7th Pay commission recommendations will be implemented.
So, let’s see now what turn these events take further.
