Cabinet Agrees to Give 4 Months Extension to 7th Pay Commission

“The cabinet has consented to give four more months for the 7th Pay Commission to submit its report.”
Following the request from the 7th Central Pay Commission, the cabinet has given an additional four months’ grace time, according to a government release.
The 7th Pay Commission was constituted on 28.02.2014 by the centre. The 18 months’ time given to the Commission ends today. The Commission has stated that there is excess of pending workload to prepare final report and that they want to intensive consultation with stakeholders. Hence, the cabinet gave a nod to extend the time until December for the Commission to carry out its work.
As a result of this new development, the Commission will submit its report in January 2016.
Rumours and unconfirmed news about this began to circulate since Monday. The meeting of the defence minister and the finance minister with the prime minister held in the week begining onwards. And the Pay Commission’s chairman’s interaction with the prime minister – all these activities led to a lot of speculations.
There were talks that the Prime Minister’s Office was getting ready to make some important announcements regarding the One Rank One Pension scheme.
Until last month, employees were confident that the 7th Pay Commission will submit its report on time. This belief was further strengthened by a series of incidents that took place. Employees are extremely disappointed to hear this announcement.
And, Central Government employees are now wondering what the real reason could be for the sudden delay..!
