Central Government employees are expecting merger of dearness allowance, increase in other allowances such as house rent, children education allowances etc. with the implementation of this report.
With the beginning of 2016, pay scales proposed by 7th pay commission will be implemented. Our reports suggests that expected pay structure would be similar that we have produced. If this happens then there would be three times jump in the salaries of central government employees.7th pay commission has reiterated that ratio between the minimum and maximum pay scales proposed by 6th pay commission was . It has also reiterated that there are lots of anomalies left, after the implementation of 6th pay commission and those anomalies will certainly be taken care of.

Employees unions are studying estimated pay scales and would certainly be registering its suggestions soon.Till date central government has notified six pay commissions before notifying seventh in February 2014. First central pay commission was notified in 1946, second CPC in 11957, Third CPC in 1970, Fourth CPC in 1983, Fifth in 1994 and sixth in 2006.Report of sixth pay commissoin was implemented w.e.f. . Sixth pay commission had proposed many newthing such as allowance and transport allowance.
It further prposed increase in all allowances by 25% with the increase in dearness allowance to 50% to counter rising inflation. It had also proposed two year child care leave for women employees. These measures were widely welcomed by central government employees. These measures were widely welcomed by central government employees. 6th pay commission had also proposed to modify assured progression scheme and introduced Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP).Now central government employees are expecting modification in allowances and schemes. Employees are expecting increase in house rent, children education allowance, transport allowance and other allowances. Employees are also expecting that currency of Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme will be reduced to five years from 10 years. Employees unions are demanding upgradation in grade pay after five years, if the employee doeno’t get the benefit promotion in five years time.
Central government employees are also expecting that 7th pay commission would recommend to merger of dearness allowance with basci pay if it crosses 100% mark.Employees are also expecting increase in annual increment from 3% to 5%. One bone of contention for central government employees is Grade pay Rs. 5400. This grade pay falls both in PB-2 and PB-3. Employees are expecting increase in grade pay Rs.5400 which falls in PB-3 so that on promotion employees get increase in grade pay along with increase in increment @5% (current increment is 3%).City compensatory allowance was stopped by 6th pay commission. Employees’ unions wants that city compensatory allowance be restored according to the class of cities.
Expectations are very high let’s see how much 7th pay commission fulfills those. But it is certain that 7th pay commission will bring cheers to around 80 lakhs central government employees and pensioners.
