7th pay commission notification cell chief appointed

7th pay commission notification cell chief appointed


New Delhi: With the appointment of chief of the implementation cell to look into the issuing the notifications of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for central government employees is tried to appease employees after strike threat.

On Thursday, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) named Rajesh Kumar Chaturvedi, chairman of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), as the chief of the implementation cell of the 7th Pay Commission.

CBSE chief Chaturvedi, a Madhya Pradesh cadre IAS officer of 1987 batch, was given the additional charge of Joint Secretary in the cell for three months or till appointment of a regular incumbent.

Before appointment CBSE chairman recently, Chaturvedi was posted in this implementation cell as Joint Secretary, as per the Ministry’s order, the cell is to be headed by Joint Secretary with the help of nine other staff.

“The implementation cell is now drafting the notification of the 7th pay commission recommendations, which the cabinet approved on June 29. Giving additional charge to Chaturvedi has no effect on our works as he was already our chief 5 days ago.”

The cell will issue the notification shortly within 7 to 10 days. So the central government employees will get the increased salaries under the new pay matrix from August excluding new allowances as I said earlier,” a Finance Ministry official said on Thursday on condition of anonymity.

The Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances including HRA, transport allowance.

The Cabinet had accepted almost all the recommendations of the 7th pay commission.

There is resentment from central government employees’ Unions in respect of minimum pay, they are demanding minimum pay Rs. 26,000 instead of Rs 18,000 and 3.68 fitment factor instead of 2.57. The government assured them to consider their demands through a High Level Committee, which will soon be set up and the government will take steps accordingly.

The decision of High level Committee will be coming stipulated time frame i.e. four months.

The above conditions shows the urgency and seriousness with which the BJP government is planning the execution of 7th Pay Commission recommendations shortly, hence the government asked the previous chief of implementation cell to take additional charge of the cell – tasked with rollout of notifications of the 7th Pay Commission recommendation, which cabinet was approved.
