7th pay commission: Big day looming for central government employees; will PM Modi oblige with a pay hike?
7th pay commission report recommendations did not leave the central government staff entirely satisfied. They had asked for a 3.68 times hike in fitment factor with minimum salaries rising to 26,000 but that particular demand was not fulfilled. The 7th CPC panel plumped instead for a 2.57 times hike with salaries at the bottom rising to Rs 18,000 in the revised salary structure.
