7th Pay Commission: Central government employees should know the basic facts related to their 7th CPC (Central Pay Commission)-linked salary payments. From Pay Matrix, Pay Band, Grade Pay and Pay Level - it's important for a central government employee to know one's pay under the Seventh Pay Commission structure. It will help him or her to know for sure that all benefits are being taken without losing out on any of monetary entitlements. However, it's also important to know whether these benefits apply to an employee or not. The central government has notified the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules after the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission were accepted quite some time ago.
