7th pay commission: Govt employees unhappy with improper implementation

| October 28, 2017

New Delhi: It seems that a strong sense of resentment is growing among millions of government employees over poor implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Most government offices in Manipur were crippled as employees took mass casual leave protesting against the inordinate delay in implementing the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. The Manipur government has around 84,000 employees.








Several media reports say around 2,000 resident doctors of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have started hunger strike in protest against the “improper implementation” of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, but continue working.

Expressing dissatisfaction over various recommendations of the commission, the resident doctors sought the Prime Minister’s intervention in the issue.




In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the AIIMS Resident Doctors Association said even one and half years after the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission recommendations and four months of allowance approval in other medical institutes, the Delhi AIIMS doctors still didn’t get the revised pay because of administrative lapses.

“Even after four months of implementation of the revised allowances at the central government institutes like Safdarjung Hospital, RML Hospital and other autonomous medical institutes like PGI Chandigarh, we are still awaiting a nod from the Health Ministry for getting it implemented here at AIIMS,” AIIMS RDA president Harjit Singh Bhatti said in the letter.

Meanwhile, the issue of increasing the basic minimum pay for government staff beyond the commission recommendations is likely to be taken up before the end of this month, according to reports.

The latest development follows the postponement of the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee (NAC), which was slated to be held on October 7.

The NAC is making all efforts to meet this month itself, though no official date has been announced yet.




The Centre had constituted the committee to look into the pay irregularities arising out of the pay panel’s recommendations.

In a bonanza to central government employees, the Union Cabinet in June approved recommendations of the7th Pay commission with 34 modifications, which will mean an additional annual burden of Rs30,748 crore on the exchequer. All allowances are given effect from 1 July 2017.
