7th Pay Commission: Salary hike announcement has been made for those government employees who had been waiting for a long time for the good news.

The 7th Pay Commission latest news has it that the Executive Council has announced the implementation of the 7th CPC report recommendation in Delhi University, Times of India reported. However, the Delhi University Council indicated its helplessness in adhering to the UGC rule that says colleges need to themselves generate 30 per cent of resources. Notably, the council also insisted that the salary changes must apply to all university and its various colleges, employees. And over and above that, it also insisted that all benefits arising from seventh pay commission for Delhi University faculty must be at par with employees of central government. In a strong statement, council also sent a strong warning. It said that it will come up with a plan to take over colleges managed by trusts like Hindu College and others, if they violate rules.
Significantly, just last month thousands of Delhi University teachers and other employees had held a protest march in Delhi from Kotla to the University Grants Commission (UGC) office. They were highlighting their disapproval of 7th Pay Commission Revision Notification over the funding formula that orders universities to generate 30 pct revenue on their own, NDTV reported. Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) said, "Teachers and karamcharis are anguished about the delay in disbursement of revised salaries as per the 7th Pay Revision." The association added that it was further concerned about another aspect as the 7th CPC implementation may get further delayed due to MHRD 30-70% funding formula.
DUTA also revealed that 'Central Universities are to get only 70 pct of the enhanced financial burden on account of Seventh Pay Commission Revision and the gap should be filled by the Universities. It said that this was unacceptable. Teachers also indicated their dissatisfaction with the amount of salary hike that 7th Pay Commission has recommended. They said the fitment factor formula for teachers has been pegged at 2.57 times and that amounts to a hike of just 14.27%, which is 'the lowest since India won Independence.' It said that this flies in the face of the previous hikes as the 2 pay commission earlier had ordered 40 pct jump in basic pay.
