Duties of the Seventh Central Pay Commission
Major issues to be resolved
Implementation Dates of Previous Pay Commission Recommendations
- January 1, 1986 – 4th Pay Commission
- January 1, 1996 – 5th Pay Commission
- January 1, 2006 – 6th Pay Commission
What are the hottest rumors?
- Union Cabinet chaired by PM on August 26, 2015 gave its approval for extension to 7th CPC to submit its report by the end of December 2015.
- As per reports in media, 7th CPC is likely to maintain status quo on the retirement age. However, some unconfirmed sources didn’t rule out the possibility of a suggestion from Pay Commission to the government that the earliest of either 33 years of service length or 60 years of age may be considered as a criteria for superannuation of central government employees.
- Recommendation for pay hike is likely to be low after merging the existing basic pay and dearness allowances. Merging the both component mean 155% rise and adding 25-35% extra makes it 1.8 to 1.9 times in terms of basic to basic.
- Grade Pay is likely to be abolished by 7th CPC and gaps between pay scales may widen and hence 7th CPC scale may some what follow the earlier pay formats (as in 3rd, 4th or 5th CPC)
- Government may not risk any adverse effect of disclosures related to pay recommendations on election prospects in upcoming Bihar elections.
Rationale for the Seventh Pay Commission
- Daily Allowance (DA) has already exceeded 100% of basic pay, and it cannot be merged with basic pay due to the recommendations of the 6th CPC.
- Since the wages of some categories of non-government employees are revised at intervals of less than ten years, wages should be revised every five years for central government employees also.
- Prompt pay revision of Central Government employees will help reduce the increasing disparities between Central Government employees, public sector employees, bankers, and private sector employees.
Projected Pay Scales (After Implementation of the 7th CPC)
|7th CPC as per some media reports has eliminated grade pay system and recommended pay scales similar to earlier pay commissions.|
