Latest News on 8th Central Pay Commission

 The correct time to call for the establishment of the 8th Central Pay Commission

8th CPC

Since 2012, more people have called for the creation of the 7th Pay Commission. Therefore, it is necessary that the Central Government establish the 8th Pay Commission to review pay and allowances.

Latest News on 8th Central Pay Commission

Reports from the 7th Pay Commission were submitted in 18 months.

On September 25, 2013, P Chidambaram, who was the finance minister at the time, declared that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had given his approval for the creation of the 7th Pay Commission.

The seventh pay commission was established on February 8th, 2014. The 7th Central Pay Commission's chairman was Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur. On November 19, 2015, the Commission submitted in its report, and on January 1, 2016, the recommendations took effect. On July 25, 2016, the order for implementing the 7th CPC recommendation was released.

Sixth Pay Commission

On October 5, 2006, the B.N. Srikrishna, justice, appointed the Sixth Pay Commission. Although it submitted in its report on March 24, 2008, its recommendations started to be followed on January 1, 2006. The Central Government was required to pay arrears for modifying the pay with effect from 1.1.2006 as a result of the implementation delay. Ministries and Departments requested a lot of clarifications about pay revision, pay fixation on promotion, stepping up of pay, and allowances. A committee was established to eliminate anomalies in Pay-related problems.

Date of the 8th Pay Commission ?

Therefore, in order to avoid all of these misconceptions, the Central Government must step up and establish the 8th Pay Commission well in advance so that it can execute the Pay Commission's decision prospectively beginning on January 1, 2026.

In the past, it took the pay commissions an average of more than 18 months to complete their report. It will take about 8 to 10 months for a call to form the 8th pay commission to become a reality. It will take another six to eight months to make the announcement and constitute the Pay Commission if the Government grants this request.

Implementation of the 8th CPC?

According to the abovementioned assumption, the 8th Pay Commission report will be submitted in a total of 38 months. If a decision is made today, the 8th Pay Commission's recommendation will immediately take effect on January 1, 2026. Because of this, we believe that now is the appropriate time to call for the establishment of the 8th Central Pay Commission.

We can only hope that the Central Government Employees Association and the trade unions will decide what to do and behave sensibly.
