Indian Govt Announce 7th Pay Commission For Central Government Employees

Ahead of elections, the central government on Wednesday (25/09/2013) announced constitution of the Seventh Pay Commission, which will go into the salaries, allowances and pensions of about 80 lakh of its employees and pensioners.
"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission. Its recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from January 1, 2016", finance minister P Chidambaram said in a statement.

The setting up of the Commission, whose recommendations will benefit about 50 lakh central government employees, including those in defence and railways, and about 30 lakh pensioners, comes ahead of the assembly elections in 5 states in November and the general elections next year.

The government constitutes Pay Commission almost every ten years to revise the pay scales of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modification.

As the Commission takes about two years to prepare its recommendations, the award of the seventh pay panel is likely to be implemented from January 1, 2016, Chidambaram said.

The Sixth Pay Commission was implemented from January 1, 2006, fifth from January 1, 1996 and fourth from January 1, 1986.

The names of the chairperson and members of the 7th Pay Commission and its terms of reference will be finalized shortly after consultation with major stakeholders, Chidambaram said.

  1. There is a very huge gap in the salary and facilities of a class one employee and a class iv employee in India. It clearly shows that class 1 employees are masters and Class iv employee are slaves in India and we are following the rules of GULAM BHART of BRITISH era. If a class iv employee cannot do the work of a class I officer then it is also hard truth that class I employee can not do the work of a class IV employee. We acknowledge the work done by the class one employee but work done by the class iv employee also should be acknowledged. We should have a right of equality as per our constitution. We all collectively should think and work sincerely about this matter and we must approach to the 7th pay commission and government (who always talk to minimize difference between RICH AND POOR) to minimize the salary difference between different category of employees in India. You all are requested to write your views on this matter.
