VII Pay Commission or 7th Pay CommissionIt is a jubilation time for the Central govt and state govt employees as Finance Minister Shri P.Chidambaram in a statement said here today that the Prime Minister has approved the constitution of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. However the names of the committee forming seventh pay commission has been withheld and will be announced post consultation with major stakeholders.
The major change in this pay commission is that Indian Armed forces are likely to have their own pay panel for the first time since independence. This is to assuage the aspirations of the forces and the ex servicemen as they have generally got a raw deal at the hands of the bureaucrats. However time will tell that whether Army, Navy and Airforce can arrive at a consensus or put their foot on the axe. Just a recap; we had covered VI Pay commission update here.
