After so many efforts of 7th Pay commission to get the Minimum Pay hike for the 50 Lakh Central Government employees and pensioners, still, the government seems to be incapable of implementing the new pay matrix. It has been months since the debate between the 7th Pay commission and the government has been going on in this matter. This is a huge step, says the government and still is not formulating the plan of implementation.
Recently, after the Modi Sarkaar waved the green signal for the minimum pay hike, all the Central government employees and pensioners were in a state of Joy. Though, this joy was just temporary as there was no word after the announcement that NAC will hold the meeting to formulate an official report on 7th Pay Recommendation.
7th Pay Commission – When is NAC Meeting Going to be Held?
It has been nearly a month now that the government has approved the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission regarding the minimum pay hike for the 50 Lakh Central Government employees. It is quite disappointing that the government is not able to take decisions and stand on it. After spreading the news of the approval, NAC meeting was supposed to happen in October 2017, that never took place. Now, October is gone and so is the hope from the faces of the 50 LAkh central government employees.
After independence, this is the first time that country is going through these huge financial changes. According to the sources, it is clarified that the minimum pay hike for the Central Government employees and Pensioners under 7th pay commission will be implemented by January 2018 after the report by NAC will be passed by the Union Cabinet.
Coming to the Salaries, according to the sources on the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission, the minimum pay for the CG employees will be increased from Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 21,000. This is not all as per the sources, the Fitment Factor is also supposed to rise to 3 from 2.6.
According to the media reports, the Central Government employees are demanding to increase the minimum pay to Rs. 26,000 instead of Rs. 21,000.
Once, implemented 50 Lakh central employees and pensioners throughout the country will enjoy the hike. Also, as per the recent events. NIT and IIT Faculty is also considered to get a salary hike. Despite so many efforts of 7th Pay Commission, the decision is still appearing as a mirrage to all the central government employees and pensioners.
