The seventh pay commission recommended increasing the minimum salary of the central employees from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000. This increase was also approved by the cabinet. But the central employees are not happy with this increase. They want their salary to increase further.
To audit the proposals of the Seventh Pay Commission, the National Anomaly Committee (NAC) was formed. According to a new report, it has now come to light that the salaries of central employees will be further increased.
The decision to extend the increased salaries may be applicable from 1 April 2018. According to the report, NAC will submit its report on raising the salary on December 15. After this, the report will go to the cabinet for approval.
Significantly, the Cabinet has already approved the minimum wage from Rs 7,000 to 18,000 rupees per month as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. Apart from this, the fitment factor has also been increased 2.57 times. In spite of this, the demand for the central staff is that the minimum wage should be increased from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 per month and increase the fitment factor to 3.68 times instead of 2.57 times increase.
It is expected that NAC will increase the minimum salary from Rs 18,000 to Rs 21,000. Apart from this, the suggestion of increasing the fitment factor will be given from 2.57 to 3.00. Earlier, The seventh pay commission recommended increasing the minimum salary to 18,000 rupees.
