Indian Military Veterans

New Delhi, July 14: The notification for implementation of 7th Pay Commission is expected to be issued by early next week. As per the latest reports, government is expected to implement hike only in basic pay of the central government employees. The hike in allowance has been delayed by at least four months. Government has formed a High Level Committee headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to re-examine the hike in Housing Rental Allowance (HRA), Dearness Allowance (DA) and Non Practicing Allowance. (ALSO READ: 7th Pay Commission news: High Level Committee likely to recommend the increase of minimum salary from Rs 18,000 to Rs 20,000)
Without the hike in allowances, the salaries which government employees would receive from August 1 would be hiked by 14.29 per cent. This would be the lowest ever salary hike implemented by any Pay Commission in the past 70 years.
Government had set up a High-Level Committee earlier in the month to examine the anomalies in the CPC recommendations related to the allowances. The Committee will also consider the demand raised by several employee unions demanding the increase in entry-level salary from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000. (ALSO READ: 7th Pay Commission news: CPC recommendations to be notified early next week, hiked salaries to be credited from August)

The notification of the salary hike is expected to be issued early next week.
