7th Pay Commission likely to recommend 15pc average hike in salary

The 7th Pay Commission is likely to recommend an average 15 percent hike in salary which is due for implementation from January 1, 2016.

The Commission will submit its final report to the Finance Ministry on November 20, as per report.

According to report, over 48 lakh serving central government employees and 54 lakh pensioners are likely to benefit by the 7th Central Pay Commission.

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.

All the 36 organised Group A services have petitioned the commission seeking parity with the IAS and determination of central postings based on merit.

The IAS officers have also expressed their reservation 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.

The report adds that 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.
