Higher Allowances for central staff likely from 1st April

7th Pay Commission: Govt not to hike minimum pay, higher allowances to be paid from April 1.

No Arrears likely.

 In a setback to central government employees, Centre has decided not to hike minimum pay under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Higher allowances and minimum pay under the 7th Pay Commission have been the major bone of contention among majority of the central government employees. The government seems in no mood to increase minimum pay of Rs 18,000 under the 7th Pay Commission. Though the government is expected to announce higher allowances in March, it had no plan to give allowances in arrears from August.

Anomaly in pay fixation on MACP II

Eg.  Employees getting MACP – 2 promotion on PA/SA cadre this year are fixed at the Basic pay of 50600/- .  Whereas those will be promoted next year will be fixed with the Basic Pay of 47600/-. A single increment difference in service shows three increment differences in new pay matrix.

 Those at Basic pay of 16990 by this 1st July,  are with basic pay of 44100 , with two addition increments  next year this will goes to 46800/- in 2800 grade pay  and will be sit at the basic pay of 47600/- in 4200 column with a  hike of 800/-.

The issue arises because of the grade pay differences with the multiplication factor in pay matrix table
