NAC’s upcoming report to bring a new surge in Minimum pay for Central Govt. Employees

According to the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission the National Anomaly Committee (NAC) in its upcoming report on December 15 might suggest increasing the minimum wage for Central government employees to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000. This change if accepted will be implemented from April 2018.

Reports released earlier indicated towards a hike beyond the suggestions given by the NAC report, which was however denied by sources from Finance Ministry. The last hike in salary allowance as per the 7th pay commission recommendations was implemented in June 2016, as well as in July 2017.

In the current report, that is expected to release by 15th of December, NAC has suggested the salary to be Rs 21,000 with 3.00 times fitment factor. The leaders of the Central Govt. Employees’ union are still unsatisfied, and want the salary to be increased to Rs 26,000 with a 3.68 times fitment factor. The union also indicated an indefinite strike if their demands will not be kept.

According to the union leader, the delays in salary hikes and payments have led to severe stress and trauma for the employees, and if the finance ministry fails to implement the hike by Jan, all central govt. employees would be on an indefinite strike.
