7th Pay Commission Pay hike for Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Statement Government Employees soon – Pay hike for Gujarat, Himachal govt staff likely post assembly elections
7th Pay Commission Pay hike for Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Statement Government Employees soon – Announcement is likely to come in January
Government employees in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh may have to wait a little longer as these states may implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission post assembly elections, some media reports suggest. The announcement is likely to come in January – almost one-and-a-half year after the proposal got a go ahead from the Union Cabinet.
According to a report in Sen Times quoting sources, the government has no plan to give allowances in Arrears of pay hike from January 2016, for the central government employees. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had promised to hike minimum pay for the central government employees day after the cabinet approved recommendations made under the 7th Pay Commission.
Recently, over 12 lakh Rajasthan government staff and pensioners benefitted as the Vasundhara Raje-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government gave a go ahead for higher allowances, including house rent allowance (hra).
Analysts say the move is expected to boost consumer demand but strain public finances. Also, there is one school of thought that argues that it would provide the much-needed succor from skyrocketing prices.
It was a Diwali gift for nearly 7.58 lakh teachers employed in the Indian universities, when Union HRD Minister, Prakash Javadekar announced the extension of the benefits of 7th Pay Commission to include a substantial increase in salary for college and university teachers.
As per the revised pay scales, college and university teachers can expect a pay hike of Rs 10,400 to Rs 49,800. This would register an entry pay growth in the revision of 22-28 per cent. The approved pay scales would be applicable from January 1, 2016.
