New Delhi, June 3: The Narendra Modi government will ‘consider’ hiking the minimum wage of Central Government employees from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000, after officials from various unions had threatened to call for indefinite strike. On Thursday, a day after Modi government had approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendation, various central government employee union leaders met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. Soon after the meeting ended the union leaders were assured that their demands of increasing the minimum wage from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 will be consider.
According to a source within the ministry, Narendra Modi government can boost the minimum wage as they cannot afford indefinite strike which has been called by the union leaders from July 11. Following the threat Modi government is considering to set a panel to review the entire issue.
More than 33 lakh government employee were disappointed by the minimum wage set at Rs 18,000 by the 7CPC and are demanding that the minimum salary be set at Rs 26,000 per month.
For last three years more than 47 lakh Central Government employees and 57 lakh pensioners were waiting for the implementations of 7CPC but after Wednesday many seems to be unhappy with action taken by government officials.
Shiva Gopal Mishra, General Secretary of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), “They have fixed the minimum wage at a meagre Rs 18,000 in the 7CPC. Earlier the basic pay was Rs 7,000 which was multiplied by 2.57 (fitment formula) after which it came to Rs 18,000. Our demand is 3.8 fitment formula”. (Also Read: 7th Pay Commission latest news today: Minimum wage of Central Government employee to be hiked from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000)
The trio ministers have been informed about the fitment calculation of 3.8 which is considered by the. The implementation of 7CPC will give a burden of Rs 1.02 trillion to the government and according to 3.8 fitment formula the Modi government will have an additional burden of Rs 3.28 thousand crore.
The employees have been demanding to apply fitment formula of 3.8 since November 2016. They had also kept their demand to Justice A K Mathur led team who was heading the 7CPC.
