## 7th Pay Matrix Table

The table of the 7th Pay Matrix has two dimensions.

Pay Matrix with two dimensions: a horizontal range in which each level corresponds to a "functional role in the hierarchy" with numbers assigned 1, 2, 3, and so on until level 18; and a "vertical range" signifying "pay progression."

## What is Pay Matrix?

A pay matrix is a chart that shows the salary ranges that will be used when changes to the salary structure of central government employees are implemented. The pay matrix is made up of columns that are divided into pay levels and rows that show salary increments throughout a professional career of up to 40 years.
Employees can also use a pay matrix to check their current pay level and predict their potential growth throughout their careers. The most recent pay matrix used to determine the pay level of any Central Government employee is the 7th pay commission pay matrix.

## What is the Minimum Pay?

The cabinet approved the recommendations to raise the minimum wage to Rs18,000 per month, which is a significant achievement. As a result, no central government employee will be paid less than Rs 18,000 per month.

## What is the Fitment factor?

The fitment factor is the number that will be equally multiplied by the pay matrix's basics in each row. For the 7th Central Pay Commission, the current basic pay of central government employees, which is the sum of the pay scale and the grade pay, will be multiplied by the new fitment factor.
The fitment factor for this central pay commission would be a pay hike of around 2.57 times for employees and pensioners.
This means that all central government employees and retirees' basic salaries will be multiplied by the fitment factor of 2.57.

## 7th CPC Children Education Allowance

Central Government Employees are given a Children's Education Allowance to cover the costs of their children's education. Education costs for school and hostel are covered by this allowance. Educational allowances have components, allowances, and updates under Children's Education Allowance. A differently-abled child receives twice the amount of allowance as a typical child. Currently, two children of an employee are eligible for the allowance if they attend a recognized school.

A certificate from the head of the educational institution is required for reimbursement of educational expenses. The certificate should demonstrate that the child was enrolled in the previous school year. A certificate from the head of the institution demonstrating the amount spent on accommodation and boarding by the student's parent is required for hostel subsidy.

Education amount is increased to Rs 2,250 per month from Rs1,500 per month. However, if the Dearness Allowance (DA) increases, the CEA will rise as well.
The hostel subsidy amount is increased to Rs.6,750 per month from Rs.4,500 per month. The hostel subsidy will increase as the Dearness Allowance (DA) rises. The CEA and Hostel Subsidy reimbursements will be made only once per fiscal year, at the end of the financial year.

The hostel subsidy is only available for children who are enrolled in a residential educational institution that is at least 50 kilometres away from the Government servant's home.

The Children Education Allowance paid by the Govt. servant shall be reimbursed in the case of a differently-abled child studying in an institution aided or approved by the Central/State Govt or whose fees are approved by any of these authorities, regardless of whether the institution is ‘recognised' or not. Benefits will be available in such cases until the child reaches the age of 22.

## 7th Pay Commission for Pensioners

The Commission's recommendations for staff pay would result in a substantial increase in the minimum wage from Rs. 7,000 per month to Rs. 18,000 per month. This, based on pension calculation, would increase the minimum pension from Rs. 3500 to Rs. 9,000. According to the Commission's recommendations, the minimum pension will be increased by 2.57 times over its current level.
