7th pay commission: Government employees retirement age now on the table?
The government is reportedly still discussing the fitment factor hike. Employees, especially the lower-rung ones, may finally expect some good news, as earlier reports suggested that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was reportedly willing to increase the minimum pay and fitment factor for these staff, but the issue never managed to reach the finalisation point.
7th pay commission: There is much speculation over whether the Central government can extend benefit of the 7th pay commission to its employees by increasing the retirement age by two years. Image source: Reuters
