QUESTION asked by Neeraj Shekhar:

Will the Finance Minister be pleased to state:

Whether Government is actively contemplating to increase minimum pay from Rs 18,000/- to Rs 21,000 and fitment factor from 2.57 to 3, in view of resentment of Central Government employees over historically lowest increase in pay by 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC);
