7th Pay Commission Latest News: The Central government employees are hoping that they would be able to avail hike in their minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the 7th Pay Commission recommendations ahead of Dussehra, following the benefits extended to different departments by the Narendra Modi government, according to media reports. The Centre recently gave a bumper hike in the salary of health services employees, who would get increased pay from Rs 4100 to Rs 5300 per month, and the benefit will be considered from July 1, 2017.
Notably, the central government employees have been demanding the hike in their basic pay Rs 18,000, since the 7th Pay Commission report was submitted, but now, reports in the media are doing the rounds that the Modi-led NDA government is likely to give attention to their long-pending demand, and these central government employees may get the pay hike before Dussehra.
According to the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, these central government employees currently get basic pay of Rs 18,000, but they have been demanding from the government should fix it at Rs 26,000, as the present pay has failed to meet their financial needs.
