7th Pay Commission: Basic Salary of Central Government Employees Can Increase: Pay Revision In New Year


Central government employees might have a pay hike for this New Year. According to reports available in media, the union government might announce a salary hike in the "fitment factor" of central and state employees.

7th Pay Commission: Basic Salary of Central Government Employees Can Increase

Fitment factor

the central government employees were demanding for minimum salary hike for a long time. They demanded to hike the minimum pay of Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 26,000. In addition to that, they demanded the fitment factor to hike from 2.57% to 3.68%. Central government employees' basic salary is generally multiplied by the fitment factor. If the government approves the demand regarding the fitment factor, then the employee will have an increase of Rs. 8,000 in their minimum salary.

For example, when a central government employee draws a basic salary per month of Rs. 20,000, his/her monthly salary will be Rs. 51,400, other than the allowance.

The fitment factor of the union government employees is decided before the Union Budget presentation. If the government revises the fitment factor before the next budget, then the union government employees can expect a salary hike for them. So, with the fitment factor hike, the employees' minimum wage will also increase.
