New Delhi: The buzz for the minimum pay hike under 7th Pay Commission for Central government employees has been on rounds for some time now. If reports are to be believed, the minimum pay will be hiked to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000. But now the question arises – When will this happen?

According to media reports, the government wants this to happen by January 2018. Earlier, it was reported that the government has finally given a green signal for the hike in minimum pay and fitment factor of the Central government employees. After this, National Anomaly Committee (NAC) and Department of Expenditure will take a final call on the matter.

The 22-member NAC panel is being headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and has members of both the official and staff side.

When the Union Cabinet approved the implementations under the 7th Pay Commission, the ministry had fixed the minimum pay at Rs 18,000, keeping in mind the fitment factor at 2.57. Now, the government is considering raising the fitment factor to 3 times.

However, several media reports suggested the central government employees unions were demanding a 3.68 fitment formula.

The move will help in the elimination of poverty and stimulate the Indian economy further, say government officials quoted in media reports.

On June 28, in a major relief to 48 lakh central government employees, the Union Cabinet had approved recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission with 34 modifications. With effect from July 1, 2017, the increased allowances are based on the recommendations of the Committee on Allowances (CoA).
