New Delhi, May 21: The Union Cabinet led by Narendra Modi government had accepted the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission last year in June and after this, the government increased the minimum wage of over 80 per cent of Central Government employees from Rs 7,000 per month to Rs 18,000 per month. According to a report, the revised income of Central Government employees under 9,300 to 34,800 pay band has finally increased. The pay band under which central government employees will be paid has been divided into four categories – from 4200, 4600, 4800 and 5400, which is further divided into 40 levels.








Earlier there were reports that the Defence Pay Matrix, which was earlier divided into 24 stages in now extended to 40 stages similar to the Civil Pay Matrix.

Earlier this month, the Union Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, gave a go-ahead for the modifications under the 7th Pay Commission. After this unanimous decision, it will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners. This will come into effect from January 1, 2016. A rough estimate suggests that the pension bill alone is likely to affect the government exchequer by Rs 1,76,071 crore.

Last year in June, the Union Cabinet while approving the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, the government had also approved the changed method of pension revision recommended by the Central Pay Commission for pre-2016 pensioners.




Many reports suggest that a large number of central government employees have to wait for one more week to receive any update on the revised allowance structure as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

Last month, the Committee on Allowance headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa submitted its final report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley which now examined by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (ECoS) which is expected to take a final call next week after presenting their opinion in front of the Union Cabinet.

On the other side, a large number of Central Government employees say that they are frustrated with the wait. The 7th Pay Commission was constituted in February 2014 by Manmohan Singh government to review the principles and structure of emoluments of all central government civilian employees, including defence forces and forces and submitted its report on November 19, 2015.
