At the same time, a pay commission is constituted every 10 years in the country to change the salary structure of central employees. This pay commission gives recommendations to make the salary of the employees in line with the current environment. On the basis of this, first the central and then the state governments restructure their salaries.
7 pay commissions have been constituted in the country so far. The first pay commission in the country was formed in January 1946. At the same time, the last i.e. Seventh Pay Commission was constituted on February 28, 2014. In such a situation, it has been 8 years since the 7th Pay Commission, so the atmosphere of discussion about the 8th Pay Commission has become heated in the employees’ organizations. If this happens, then 68 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners will get its direct benefit.
Government has refused for the time being , when the Central Pay Commission will be constituted, questions are being asked from the government on behalf of the employees’ organizations. However, during the monsoon session, the government has made it clear that at present, it does not have any proposal under consideration to make the eighth pay commission. Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Choudhary said in Parliament on Monday that at present there is no idea on the 8th Pay Commission.
How much can the salary increase , even though the government has refused the Pay Commission for the time being, but there is a flurry among the employee organizations about it. Organizations say that at present the minimum wage limit has been kept at Rs 18,000.
In this, the fitment factor in increment is 2.57 times, although the 7th Pay Commission recommends keeping it to 3.68 times. If the recommendation is accepted, then the minimum salary of central employees will increase from Rs 18 thousand to Rs 26 thousand.
Will Pay Commission be abolished?
It is also being heard that after the 7th Pay Commission, its tradition will end. That is, after this 8th or any other new pay commission will not come. Instead, the government can implement an automatic increment system. In this, the salary increase of government employees will be done automatically. It can be like increment in private jobs. In this, if the DA is more than 50 percent, there will be automatic revision in the salary
