7th Pay Commission – Expected Pay Scales shows significant raise in salary for Central Government Employees

Hurry..! 7th Pay Commission’s report to be implemented on 01.01.2016

Estimated Pay Scales shows substantial increase in salary.

New Delhi, There is a good news for Central Government employees that 7th Central Pay Commission’s report will be implemented with effect from 01.01.2016. Central Government employees are expecting merger of dearness allowance, increase in other allowances such as house rent, children education allowances etc. with the implementation of this report.

With the beginning of 2016, pay scales proposed by 7th pay commission will be implemented. Our reports suggests that expected pay structure would be similar that we have produced. If this happens then there would be three times jump in the salaries of central government employees.


7th pay commission has reiterated that ratio between the minimum and maximum pay scales proposed by 6th pay commission was 1:12. It has also reiterated that there are lots of anomalies left, after the implementation of 6th pay commission and those anomalies will certainly be taken care of. It is expected that ratio between the minimum and maximum pay would be 1:13. This will certainly be annoying factor for employees unions.
Employees unions are studying estimated pay scales and would certainly be registering its suggestions soon.
Till date central government has notified six pay commissions before notifying seventh in February 2014. First central pay commission was notified in 1946, second CPC in 11957, Third CPC in 1970, Fourth CPC in 1983, Fifth in 1994 and sixth in 2006.

Report of sixth pay commission was implemented w.e.f. 01.01.2016. Sixth pay commission had proposed many newthing such as children education allowance and transport allowance.

It further proposed increase in all allowances by 25% with the increase in dearness allowance to 50% to counter rising inflation. It had also proposed two year child care leave for women employees. These measures were widely welcomed by central government employees. These measures were widely welcomed by central government employees. 6th pay commission had also proposed to modify assured career progression scheme and introduced Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP).

Now central government employees are expecting modification in allowances and schemes. Employees are expecting increase in house rent, children education allowance, transport allowance and other allowances. Employees are also expecting that currency of Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme will be reduced to five years from 10 years. Employees unions are demanding upgradation in grade pay after five years, if the employee doesn't get the benefit promotion in five years time.

Central government employees are also expecting that 7th pay commission would recommend permanent solution to merger of dearness allowance with basic pay if it crosses 100% mark.

Employees are also expecting increase in annual increment from 3% to 5%. One bone of contention for central government employees is Grade pay Rs. 5400. This grade pay falls both in PB-2 and PB-3.
Employees are expecting increase in grade pay Rs.5400 which falls in PB-3 so that on promotion employees get increase in grade pay along with increase in increment @5% (current increment is 3%).

City compensatory allowance was stopped by 6th pay commission. Employees’ unions wants that city compensatory allowance be restored according to the class of cities.

Expectations are very high let’s see how much 7th pay commission fulfills those. But it is certain that 7th pay commission will bring cheers to around 80 lakhs central government employees and pensioners.

Requirement of Budget for the 7th Seventh Pay Commission

Requirement of Budget for the 7th Seventh Pay Commission

Ajay Tiwari/ SNB writes an article about the Demand of Budget for the 7th pay commission for Central Government employees. We reproduced the article and given under to our readers for easy understanding…
Employee Associations want a separate provision to be placed for them by the Seventh Pay commission during the Budget Meeting. Employee Federations scheduled for a Budget Meeting with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on 17 January. All Federations of CG Employees will jointly submit a single requisition during the budget meeting.

The draft that defines the contents of the requisition was put forth to the Employee Associations on Monday. It is understood that the Employee Associations are expecting a tax exemption for an Annual Income of up to Rupees Five Lakhs; they are going to request the Finance Minister to keep the same minimal amount to correspond to the consumer Price Index also.

Pension to all employees is also a point in the submitted requisition. Along with Pension, a request for Social Security and Free Medical Facility for all Employees is going to be strong point from the Employee Associations, and also they want to remove the restrictions of the Central Government for fresh recruitment.
A request will also be raised in front of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, to make permanent the employees working in various schemes of the government, also the employee associations want to express their objection in front of the Finance Minister to the fact that the FDI is not proper in the departments of Media, Education and Health.

In the requisition submitted by the Employee Associations it will be clearly express their protest against the FDI in the sectors of Defence, Railways, Bank, Insurance, Media and Retail Business, also they will continue their protest against disinvestment in the Public Sector Undertakings.

• Finance Minister called for a meeting with the Employee Unions on 17th.

• Pleas have issues such as Income Tax benefits up to Rs 5 Lakhs and Pension to All.

Brijesh Upadhyay, the General Secretary of B.M.S (Bharatiya Majdoor Sandh), the Employee Union of R.S.S., stated that in terms of Policies, all the Employee Organisations will remain united, and hence there will be only a single requisition submitted in the Budget Meeting on behalf of all Employee Associations.

However, he stated they are working on the Issues that are to be submitted in the requisition that is to be put forth to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and it will be finalised within the next 2-3 days. BMS Leader has stated that on Tuesday all the Employee Union Leaders will be available during the meeting with the Labor and Employment Minister, during which there will also be a discussion regarding the budget requisition that needs to be submitted.

The General Secretary of HMS (Hind Majdoor Sabha) Mr HS Sidhu has stated that Issues concerning the Budget Requisition for the Seventh Pay commission, increasing of Income Tax slab to 5 lakhs, Pension to all employees and making permanent all scheme based employees will be a part of the requisition.

An interesting fact to be noted is that most of the demands of the Employee Associations are similar to their previous demands. Previously the Employee Unions couldn’t achieve any of these benefits from the Government and even this time the relationship between the Government and the Employee Unions is not suave. It is awaited to note on Tuesday, how much Labor Minister Bandaru Dattatreya and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley would be able to please the Employee Unions. The General Secretary of BMS Brijesh Upadhyay says that previously the Finance Minister promised an Interim budget and has expressed his inability to give much; hence it is natural that the expectations this time should be more.
