New Delhi, December 17: Almost 18 months have been passed and the recommendations under the 7th Pay Commission of increasing the minimum pay are under process. Since last few years, there has been a huge confusion among all the central government employees of different departments regarding the decision of the government.
Since last two-years, there has been a huge confusion among all the central government employees of different departments regarding the decision of the government. Where last two months government has been continuously promising the employees to raise the fitment factor and salaries as per the recommendation there, the news of no minimum pay hike under7th Pay Commission has been floating across digital media since last one month.
Justice AK Mathur led 7th Pay Commission had recommended to increase the minimum salaries of Central Government employees from Rs 18,000 to Rs 21,000, however, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on the other side promised to ensure its implementation by the beginning of next year.
It was not a few months back that the government was giving a promising light of hope to the central government employees.
Since the matter of minimum pay-hike has been put in front of Finance Ministry, it is observed that the Ministry is not able to stick to their words regarding the recommendations put ahead of them by 7th Pay Commission.
Earlier in October, the government was promising the employees to pass the order of implementation of the increment of minimum pay by next year and now the news has started floating around that there might be no minimum pay hike under 7th Pay Commission.
This fluctuation in the words is coming from the Finance department of the country which has been putting all the employees into a fix.
After so much of debate and speculations, the government has put all the employees of central government into the state of confusion.
With no real authentications, the employees are turning their disappointment into anger. Multiple news organisation claims that the word has been heard that there is not going to be any increment in the pay matrix as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission there, some of the media reports suggest that this is a false news and the government is still processing the employee’s request.
This confusion still prevails as there is no final decision that is officially announced by the government.
