Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to receive Seventh Pay Commission report in December
New Delhi,: The Seventh Pay Commission headed by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur is likely to submit its report to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in December, presumably recommending a 40 per cent hike in salary for the central government employees.
Justice Mathur already told PTI on August 25, “The Commission may submit its report by the end of September.”
“We are likely to recommend something for the good of central government employees, after observation of inflation, the government’s financial position and salary structure of government employees in other countries. The Finance Minister will give the latest highlights,” a top official of the pay panel said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
He also said it has been mandated to recommend incentive schemes to reward excellence in productivity, performance and integrity, which it will do.
“Though previous Pay Commissions have talked about linking pay with productivity, the earlier governments have not accepted such recommendations. Since this government has shown strong political will, we hope they will accept our recommendations,” he added.
Over 5 million central government employees are expecting a bounty from the report which is likely to recommend major changes in salaries and terms of employment, including performance-linked pay and incentives.
