7th Pay Commission: Good news for central govt employees, increased salary to be paid post April

New Delhi: Hundreds of thousands of central government employees who are eagerly waiting for the implementation of increased pay as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission may finally get some relief in April.

As per media reports Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has assured to implement the pay hike for government employees from April.

Reports further said that the proposal of pay hike will be sent to Cabinet in the beginning of April for approval. Employees on the level 1 and 5 pay matrix band will get the revised salary.

The Union Cabinet had in June approved recommendations of the CPC with 34 modifications, which will mean an additional annual burden of Rs 30,748 crore on the exchequer.

The recommendations benefit over 1 crore employees. This includes over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.
