The 7th Central Pay Commission is likely to submit its report on November 20 : TOI
The 7th Central Pay Commission is likely to submit its final report to finance ministry on November 20 which is due for implementation from January 1, 2016.
More than 48 lakh serving central government employees and 54 lakh pensioners will be impacted by the 7th Central Pay Commission which is likely to recommend an average hike of 15%, said a source.
The 900-page report is believed to have made suggestions on parity of 36 organized Group A services with the IAS which has so far largely dominated in superior positions in the central government.
The pay panel was constituted in February 2014 and was asked to submit its report within 18 months. However, in August the government gave the panel four months extension to submit its report by December.
Its recommendation will guide how the salary and various allowances of central staff will be revised besides improving their service condition. The report would also impact all the public sector employees and central autonomous bodies which generally make corrections as per the hikes given to the central staff.
Even before the report was finalized there was intense lobbying seen where all the 36 organised Group A services petitioned the commission seeking parity with the IAS and determination of central postings based on merit.
The IAS officers too had sent their individual dissention notes to department of personnel and training and the cabinet secretariat besides the pay panel demanding that their edge and superiority be maintained.
One of the demands of the Group A services is to change the composition of the Civil Services Board which is responsible for central staffing. As of now this is dominated by IAS officers and has no representation from any other service. The pay panel may recommend changes that would ensure level playing field for all officers of Group A services.
