7th Pay Commission Report, Minimum basic pay, hike in minimum basic pay,  government employees, National Anomaly Committee, NAC The fitment factor for basic pay is also likely to be raised to 3 times from 2.57 times as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

Good news for the Central government employees as they are likely to get a further hike in the minimum basic pay under the 7th Pay Commission. According to media reports, the National Anomaly Committee (NAC) is likely to meet next month for reviewing the basic pay structure and may recommend a hike in the minimum basic pay from Rs 18,000 to Rs 21,000 as against the current demand of getting it increased to Rs 26,000. Along with this, the fitment factor for basic pay is also likely to be raised to 3 times from 2.57 times as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

It may be noted that the Union government had a few months back approved an increase in the minimum basic pay from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 per month while the maximum basic pay was increased from Rs 80,000 to Rs 2.5 lakh. However, employees’ unions were not happy with the hike in the minimum basic pay and wanted it to be increased at least to Rs 26,000. Whatever be the case, Central government employees will benefit from this move even if the minimum basic pay is hiked to Rs 21,000.

Under the 7th CPC, the earlier system of Pay Bands and Grade Pay has been dispensed with and a new Pay Matrix has been introduced. In this regard, separate Pay Matrices have been drawn up for Civilians, Defence Personnel and for Military Nursing Service. The CPC has introduced index of rationalisation for arriving at minimum pay in each Level of the Pay Matrix depending upon the increasing role, responsibility and accountability at each step in the hierarchy. In this context, CPC has enhanced the minimum pay from Rs 7000 to 18000 per month and the starting salary of a newly recruited employee at lowest level is now Rs 18000 whereas for a newly recruited Class I officer, it is Rs 56100. Under 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC), in fact, the salaries of the employees are obtained by multiplying the existing basic pay by a factor of 2.57 and the figure so arrived is added to all the applicable allowances such as Transport Allowance (TA), House Rent Allowance (HRA), Medical Allowance, etc.

      Overall since last 5-8 yrs the productivity has drastically gone down in most of the central government companies.It is very easy to blame government rather than finding solutions to improve productivity.

        This is absolutely baseless story spread by the media morons. They are just quoting the undisclosed finance ministry sources, Sen Times etc. All these are fake. The govt is not at all considering any hike for gov employees. In fact the original 7th pay commission report had fitment factor 3. But the govt hushed up and restrained the 7cpc from submitting that report. Instead extended their term and given instruction to reduce fitment factor to 2.57. Govt employees deserved 40-45 hike, instead they were given 14 lowest in the history of pay commissions. All the time Jaitley engineered media were publishing this kind of false material on cpc and gov ry to infuriate public against gov employees.

            the govt has not only cheated its employees but also pensioners. They will face the backlash in the next year 2018 Assembly Elections to 5 states. The entire Central Govt. Employees, Pensioners and their families will discard BJP/NDA this time. Modi is believing a finance minister who has not faced any poverty or financial problems. The honest government employees will give a be ing reply in the next election for sure.
