The salary of lower-level officials may be increased from matrix level 1 to 5. 

In the next financial year, starting April, Central-Government Employees may get another hike. And this time it could be more than what has been recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

The salary of lower-level officials may be increased from matrix level 1 to 5.

Currently, Central-Government employees draw a basic pay as per the fitment formula of 2.57 of the basic pay under the Sixth Pay Commission. As per reports, the fitment formula may be revised to three times of the basic pay under the Sixth Pay Commission.

The proposal is likely to be sent to the Cabinet for approval. However, Central-Government employees have been demanding the fitment formula to be raised to 3.7.

Following the implementation of the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, the basic pay of Central-Government employees went up from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 per month, based on the fitment factor of 2.57, and effective from January 1, 2016. A fitment factor of 3.7 will mean that the basic minimum pay will be Rs 26,000.

Central-Government employees, however, want the basic minimum pay to be hiked to Rs 26,000 per month, based on a fitment factor of 3.7.

In June last year, the Government approved the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission on House Rent Allowance (HRA) and other allowances for 48 lakh Central- Government employees. The Cabinet cleared the Pay Commission’s recommendations with 34 modifications.

Since then, several state governments have also announced a revision in salaries of employees, based on the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.
