by the way : Virtual pay commission

by Anil Tyagi

THE 7th Pay Commission bonanza of Rs 30,748 crore was announced with a big bang by the Narendra Modi government. As many as 34 lakh government employees and 14 lakh pensioners were thrilled by the announcement in June 2017. But their dreams soon shattered. Barring some central ministries, majority of the government employees are still waiting for the increased hike and the arrears. Most of the Central University employees were informed that they may get the salary as per the 7th Pay Commission from May 2018 but there is not much clarity about the allowances. The worst sufferers are the North-Eastern states. Currently, the salary of the North-Eastern government employee is as per the 4th Pay Commission. Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma recently met with the three-member expert committee constituted for this purpose. Even the teachers of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan are still waiting for the light of the day. There are reports that the government may actually end up providing this big benefit to them ahead of the 2019 general elections at a higher rate than actually recommended. The government may reportedly provide this benefit to all employees, who get salaries from pay matrix level 1 to 5. Whenever it will happen, it will bring cheers to all government employees. Good luck to them. gfiles end logo
