New Delhi: The implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) on pay and pensionary benefits has been benefiting the central government and the state government employees since a couple of years now.
In the past, the employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations at the time of the 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of the 6th CPC. However, in 2016, several changes were brought into effect –the 7th CPC recommendations were being implemented within 6 months from the due date.
However, if the latest media reports are to be believed, there might not be any new Pay Commission after 7th Pay Commission. The central government may come up with a new formula in deciding the pay factor of the employees.
Media reports citing sources in the Finance Ministry said that the new salary hike will be based on performance-linked increment.
However, the modalities regarding the assessment in salary calculation is not yet clear. The government is reportedly working in this direction.
Media reports have hinted that the government is working on a formula that will automatically calculate the salary component once the Dearness Allowance goes beyond 50 percent. The new calculation –probably could be termed as Automatic Pay Revision.
The 7th Pay Commission was formed in 2014 under the UPA government.
