7th pay Commission latest news: Calculate your salary after Central Government denies scope for change in minimum pay

The government has repeatedly stated that it was “not appropriate” to compare the hike in the minimum pay suggested by the 7th Central Pay Commission with that of the previous pay commissions.

New Delhi, August 23: Of late, th e employees of the Central government had to confront some bad news as the government reportedly refused to raise their minimum salary of Rs. 18000. The hike in the minimum wage was recommended by the seventh pay commission and was also subsequently approved by the union Government.This can also be attributed to the fact that a raise in the wages of central government employees will be met by a similar demand by those working in the public sector. this would be a  demand that would add immense burden on the government and hence the Finance ministry made it clear that there would be no scope for change in the minimum wage of rs. 18000

 According to the latest 7th Pay Commission notification it has been confirmed that the hike in the basic pay at the junior level in the central government has witnessed a hike of just 14.27% which is the lowest in the past seventy years. There is a lot of unhappiness in the central government employees as their demand was for the basic pay to be Rs. 26,000 instead of the existing Rs. 18,000. The exact amount of Pay for central government employees as per the latest 7th pay Commission notifications can be viewed in the updated calculator here.

A Finance Ministry source was quoted as saying by the Sen Times.“The demand of central government employees through National Joint Council of Action (NJAC) for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 may be considered by the National Anomaly Committee but they can do nothing.”  The central government employees unions have hinted at the possibility of   an indefinite strike if their demand of hike in minimum pay is not fulfilled. But the government is in no mood to change mind on central government employees’ demand.

The government has repeatedly stated that it was “not appropriate” to compare the hike in the minimum pay suggested by the 7th Central Pay Commission with that of the previous pay commissions. However it is useful to note that, according to the 7th Pay Commission, the real increase given in 1996 and 2006 in minimum pay was 31 per cent and 51 per cent respectively which are huge rises in pay when compared to the current recommendation’s by the commission which brings about an increase of 14.29 per cent in the pay of employees.
