Increase of fitment factor and minimum pay for Central employees - real picture

Indian Military Veterans.

Many websites/blogs and a section of media is being flooded with possible increase of minimum pay and fitment factor for central Govt. employees for a considerable long period of time.

Some of these agencies even declared the date of effect as 1st April 2018. As per their prediction,

1. Fitment factor to be increased from 2.57 to 3 

2. Minimum pay to be hiked from Rs 18,000 to 21/26,000

3. The hike will be effective only for employees upto level 5


But as per reply given by Minister of State (Finance) in Rajya Sabha on 6th March 2018, Govt. is not considering any change in these issues. So , we urge our viewers not to be misguided and expect any betterment in pay as of now.

Increase in minimum pay and fitment factor

1170 . Shri Neeraj Shekhar

(a) whether Government is actively contemplating to increase minimum pay from Rs.18,000/- to Rs.21,000/- and fitment factor from 2.57 to 3, in view of resentment among Central Government employees over historically lowest increase in pay by 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC);

(b) if so, the details thereof and the date from which it would be implemented; and

(c ) if not, the reasons for the callous attitude of Government towards Government Employees?

ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE ( SHRI P RADHAKRISHNAN )

(a),(b)&(c ): The minimum pay of Rs.18,000/- p.m. and fitment factor of 2.57 are based on the specific recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in the light of the relevant factors taken into account by it. Therefore, no change therein is at present under consideration.
