7th Pay Commission: The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission were approved on 28 June 2016. Under this, the minimum salary of central government employees was increased from Rs 7000 to Rs 18000.


7th Pay Commission: Central employees currently get salary and increment under 7th Pay Commission. The pay matrix that has been prepared in the 7th Pay Commission is based on the fitment factor. The 7th Pay Commission came into effect on 1 January 2016. After the arrival of the new pay scale, the gross salary increased by 14%. Now the question in the mind of the central employees is whether the next pay commission will come or not? What will be the formula for the government to give promotion and increase the salary?

Pay commission will end?
After the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, the government had indicated that it can end the system of pay commission. However, no official announcement has been made about this yet. But, the government is preparing to abolish the Pay Commission.

Action will start after 2024

Former Assistant General Secretary (Assistant Secretary General) of All India Audit and Accounts Association Harishankar Tiwari told Zee Business, the system of Pay Commission has been in place for a long time. But, it is not necessary that the pay commission should be used to increase the salary. The government can also adopt a different scale for this. Any action regarding new pay commission will start after 2024.

What were the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission



 
The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission were approved on 28 June 2016. Under this, the minimum salary of central employees was increased from Rs 7000 to Rs 18000. In its recommendations, the 7th Pay Commission had also said that the government should revise the salary of employees not only once in 10 years but from time to time.

Basic was less in 6th pay scale

According to experts, the basic pay at the entry level in the sixth pay scale was Rs 7000 (pay band 5200 + grade pay 1800). At the same time, DA was available at 125% i.e. more DA was made than the basic. Including the rest of the allowances and deductions, the employee used to get Rs 14,757 a month. But, after the implementation of the 7th pay scale (7th Pay Commission), there was an increase in the gross pay. After this, the amount of DA is also added, which is currently 34%.
