7th Pay Commission: This protest for salary hike hurts the public and the government servants
The latest news on the issue is the case of Gramin Dak Sevaks. They have been demanding the implementation of 7th pay commission that would put them on par with other postal department employees. However, it turns out, they are not really full-fledged government employees and therefore, their salaries cannot be raised through the medium of 7th CPC. Significantly, the sevaks have received support from the other regular government employees in the postal department.
