New Delhi: The Sen Times has learned an average increase of 15 percent pay of central government employees more than Pay commission recommendations, is likely to be suggested by the group of secretaries, who is examining the 7th Pay Commission report.

The 7th Pay Commission’s report was published on November 19.

An estimated 48 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners across the country receive the pay , which currently stands on Sixth Pay Commission recommendations and it’s unable to neutralise the impact of inflation, which are being faced by the central government employees.

The pay of central government employees has been set at this level since 2006, adopting the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations. which is to be change with effect from January 1, 2016, for a period of 10 years.

The group of secretaries is likely to increase the minimum entry level salary of a government employee to the range of Rs 20,000 to 20,500 against Rs 18,000 recommended by the Commission headed by Justice A k Mathur who submitted the report in November this year.

Consequently, it would push up employees’ 15 percent basic pay hike at the all levels beyond the Seventh Pay Commission report.
