The 7th Central Pay Commission is likely to submit its final report to finance ministry on November 20 which is due for implementation from January 1, 2016.
More than 48 lakh serving central government employees and 54 lakh pensioners will be impacted by the 7th CPC which is likely to recommend an average hike of 15%, said a source.
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.
