7th Pay Commission: Govt employees to get higher pay scales than recommended earlier

New Delhi: This news will surely come like an icing on the cake for the central government employees.

As per media reports, a secretaries group is ready with its review on 7th Pay Commission. But it will submit its report once the elections get over.

The surprise element in the secretaries group review report is that it has pushed for higher pay than the recommendation made by the 7th Pay Commission.

Reports say that the secretaries group has recommended between Rs 2,70,000 and Rs 21,000 hike for the higher and the lower level. This is twenty thousand more in the upper limit prescribed by the 7th CPC and three thousand more in the lower level set by the commission.

It may be recalled that the government had set up a high-powered panel headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.
