7th Pay Commission: Parliamentary Committee Formed to Revise Salaries, But Not For All Employees

New Delhi, Mar 25: Dashing the expectation of all administration workers, the Ministry of Finance prior in the month elucidated that no further correction of Seventh Pay Commission is being thought about. Days after the fact Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan constituted a parliamentary advisory group to suggest a climb in pay – yet not for all workers.

The parliamentary board has been framed to prescribe changes in the compensation structure, pay rates and recompenses of just the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariat workers.

“The advisory group will exhort the executive, Rajya Sabha, and the speaker, Lok Sabha, on the progressions that are viewed as attractive in the structure of sizes of pay, stipends, leave, pensionary benefits and different civilities to the officers and all classifications of representatives of the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha secretariats,” Mahajan said.

Prior amid the progressing Budget Session, Union MoS Finance, Pon Radhakrishnan, while noting a question in the Rajya Sabha, said no further wage climb is being pondered for the focal government workers.

“The base pay of Rs 18,000 every month and the fitment factor of 2.57 depend on the particular suggestions of the seventh Central Pay Commission in light of the pertinent components considered by it. In this way, no change in that is at introduce under thought,” Radhakrishnan said.

The National Joint Council of Action – a united collection of focal government worker associations – has been looking for an amendment in the lowest pay permitted by law from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000, through an upgradation of the fitment factor from 2.57 to 3.68.

NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra, while addressing LatestLY, said the online reports which were asserting climb for the workers from April 1 were “bits of gossip”. “However, we have not pulled back our request. We will keep on raising the issue in a sorted out way,” he said.
