He, however, refused to divulge any further details on what the quantum of the increase will be. “The government is working on the numbers and also on the burden to the exchequer. It is not finalised yet; however, it will be close to the demands of the union. There will be more clarity on it in the next few weeks,” the official said.
The salary of mid level and senior level will remain unchanged.
“There will be no change in salaries of employees above pay matrix level 5. The ministry is of the view that they have already got a good hike in the seventh pay commission recommendations,” the senior official added.
