Unions pressurising for the minimum pay hike to Rs. 25000/-

4.8 million central government employees and 5.2 million pensioners in India are trapped in lives of poverty. Many suggestions have been put forth to improve their difficult situation before the National Anomaly Committee. But I think the easiest solution is the simplest, just raise the minimum pay, said a top most central government employees’ union leader on condition of anonymity.

The current minimum pay is Rs 18,000 and hiking it to Rs 25,000 would solve many of central government employees’ economic problems at a single stroke, he added.

The minimum pay is hardly extreme or ridiculous. All pay commissions except 7th Pay Commission made up pay gap between minimum pay and maximum pay from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12, which seems reasonable since employees productivity has grown during the past period to current period and inflation in India has also been raising from past to present, he confirmed.
