7th Pay Commission Latest News: CPC Benefits For Jammu And Kashmir Employees, No Hike in Minimum Pay For Top And Mid-level Central Government Employees
New Delhi, December 16: The struggle of central government employees will go in vain if the decision of no minimum pay hike is finalized by the government. Since last 4-5 months, the decision on incrementation of the pay scale of central government employees under 7th Pay Commission recommendation is dragged by the financial department of government.
Instead of taking a final decision on the existing issue, the government is spreading the words of the new system of pay revision to be installed in the country.
Thinking on the news that has come up since the 7th Pay Commission recommendation for the pay increment of Central Government employees, employees frustrations are turning high.
Government employees have been saying that there was no need of changing the system until the pending decisions are made.
Central Government Employee Union are under the impression that the government is diverting the matter of minimum pay hike under the 7th Pay Commission.
A few month back, the 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice AK Mathur has recommended that the union cabinet to increase the minimum wage of the central government employees from Rs 18,000 to Rs 21,000. After the recommendation was put forward to the government they promised to review the matter and were willing to take a decision in favour of the recommendation, giving a ray of hope to millions of central government employees. In the month of October when the NAC (National Anomaly Committee) was supposed to meet to formulate the report on the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
This report was supposed to be presented in front of Union Cabinet by the National Anomaly Committee and now it is December the decision is still not taken.
Instead of working on the recommendations that are pending the government is known to be working on the decision of ending pay commission system from the country to avail the facility of pay revision every year instead of after 10 years.
Around 48 lakh central government and 52 lakh pensioners are under the impression that the implementation of the new pay revision system is a mere distraction that government is using to take cover and to hide their incapability of taking a decision under the recommendation of 7th Pay Commission.
Some of the employees working with the government suggest that there is no need of building a new policy when the existing system of pay commission is floundering in controversy. The delay in the decision of the government on updating the pay matrix has also increased the anger and disappointment among the central government employees.
