It is worthwhile also to examine the opportunity cost of this 7th Pay Commission report expenditure and its overall effect on the economy; 89% of the persons employed by the central government, admits the 7th Pay Commission, belong to Group ‘C’ where functions are clerical; 8% of the personnel belong to Group ‘B’ where responsibilities tend to relate to first level supervision of clerical cadres or day-to-day implementation of policies and rules. This leaves just three 3% Group ‘A personnel’ whose responsibilities are either managerial or relate to policy formulation or evaluation. The bulk of the expenditure of Rs 1.02 lakh crore thus relates to augmenting the salaries and allowances of Group ‘C’ employees where the value added to decision-making is minimal.

Even a middle-level executive in a multi-national corporation would be earning a higher salary than this. (Reuters photo)
