7th Pay Commission: Govt May Take Final Call On Pay Hike In January



New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government is likely to take a final decision on pay hike better than the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations in January for 1 crore central government employees and pensioners.The assurance has been given to this effect by a top finance ministry official on condition of anonymity.

The central government employees unions’ leaders argue that the current minimum pay Rs 18,000 is not enough to live on. They also say that raising it might also be beneficial for reducing the pay gap, The pay gap between the highest maximum pay and the lowest minimum pay in the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is 1:14, which was 1:12 in the 6th pay scale.

The pay gap has long inspired debate. Some argue it’s a myth. Others say it is misleading.
