New Delhi: 7th Pay Commission minimum pay hike for CG employees is not approved. Around 48 lakh central govt employees are eagerly waiting for the minimum pay hike under 7th CPC since last 18 months. Their dreams broke into pieces when the reports said that the govt has no plans to hike the minimum pay.
The central government employees union started pressing the govt to increase the minimum wage monthly to Rs.21000 from Rs.18000 month.A union leader said that the current minimum pay Rs.18000 is not enough to live.
The CG employees unions’ said to media, “because of the current inflation, the minimum monthly wage should be Rs.21000. So the minimum wage that we demand would not be too much.”
7th Pay Commission minimum pay hike?
On the recommendations of the seventh pay commission, the lowest central govt employee is now getting Rs.18000 per month. And the top position employee is getting Rs.2.5 lakh.
The central govt has implemented a fitment factor of 2.57 uniformly for all CG employees.The employees will not get the hike in any other allowances except DA (dearness allowance).
Since the implementation of 7th pay commission, most of the union leaders are arguing on the minimum pay, i.e. Rs.18000 since this minimum pay is not enough to put up household articles.
Pay gap between the highest maximum wage and lowest minimum wage was 1:12 in the 6th pay commission. But the pay gap between the highest maximum salary and the lowest minimum is 1:14 in the 7th CPC. The National Joint Council for Action (NJCA) has demanded to reduce the gap between the maximum pay and minimum pay.
Now, central government employees union desire to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of the minimum pay hike.
