    Central government employees got a huge gift from the 7th Pay Commission report which recommended on Thursday a 23.55% per cent jump in their salary and allowances. The 7th Pay Commission is headed by Justice A K Mathur and the other members of the commission are Vivek Rae, a retired IAS officer of 1978 batch, and Rathin Roy, an economist. Meena Agarwal is secretary of the commission. The central government constitutes the pay commission every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modifications. The Pay Commission was set up by the UPA government in February 2014 to revise remuneration of about 48 lakh central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.
    Following are the highlights of the recommendations made by the 7th Pay Commission report, which was submitted to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday:
