7th Pay Commission notification likely within two months

A report from the Hindustan Times says that the Government is likely to notify the the pay commission within the next two months The timing is in such a way that it is well before the model code of conduct for the general elections comes into force. Such a move will bring a positive mood for the central government employees towards the government. Additionally the Centre is expected to give the panel enough time to prepare its report in the hope that the government would be a lot more comfortable vis-a-vis the fiscal deficit by the time the panel submits its report.

Government employees have also asked the Centre to consider merging dearness allowance with their pay, arguing that the Sixth Pay Commission, like the Centre, could not have anticipated the high inflation that has eroded real wages over the last decade. The demand was made at a preliminary meeting held between the department of personnel and the employee representatives to discuss the proposed Seventh Pay Commission.
