7th Pay Commission DA : A decade-long journey begins!

7th CPC DA : A decade-long journey begins!

“The Dearness Allowance calculations as per the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission come to an end; the method prescribed by the 7th Central Pay Commission comes into effect from Jan 2016 onward…!”

The 7th Central Pay Commission was appointed in order to evaluate the methods of calculating the salaries, incentives, benefits, pensions, retirement benefits, and Dearness Allowance of the Central Government employees and serving and retired personnel of the Indian defence forces, and suggest changes, if and when required. Four months have passed since the Central Pay Commission submitted its final report to the Centre.

The government at the centre has the discretion to accept, reject, or modify the recommendations made by the Central Pay Commission. It has constituted a high-level committee to look into the various suggestions in the report. The final decision on the implementation of the recommendations will be made based on the feedback from this empowered committee.

Meanwhile, the Central Government employees federations met with the high-level empowered committee to discuss various issues, including Minimum Wages and Fitment Factor, and to suggest required amendments in the report.

There is likely to be a delay in the publication of the notification containing the accepted recommendations by the 7th Pay Commission. Since the election Model Code of Conduct will be in place until the last week of May 2016, the Government acceptance notification is expected to be published in the first week of June. In that case, there are chances that the revised salaries will be issued from the month of June. Also, the arrears for the past five months are also likely to be released then.
