Comrades,

There are number of unwanted articles on minimum wage, fitment formula and wage hike on many websites which are not true and create confusion among the Central Government Employees. This type of the articles also give wrong impressions and give wrong signals to the Government, these articles are written without having basic knowledge of the price rise and minimum wage calculation.

The minimum wage calculation is given below. Hence it is requested to go through the below calculation of minimum wages, as the 7th CPC has indicated the use of using Dr. Aykroyd formula and 15th ILO norms for calculation of minimum wages. The rates are taken from Government shops (retail prices are 10% more than Government prices) . The rates to be taken up by the 7th CPC may vary only marginally.
