Its election bonanza for the central government employees. It was 10% DA last week And now the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh have today approved the constitution of the 7th Pay Commission, which is likely to impact at least 85 lakh central government employees and pensioners. It is one of the most important demand by the central government employees of India.
The setting up of the Commission comes ahead of the Assembly elections in five states this year and the general elections next year.
The government constitutes Pay Commission every 10 years to revise the pay scales of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modification.
The recommendations of the sixth Pay Commission were implemented from January 1, 2006; fifth from January 1, 1996, and fourth from January 1, 1986.
There are at present around 50 lakh central government employees and 35 lakh pensioners, who stand to benefit from the recommendations from the Pay Commission.
