CABINET LIKELY TO SET TERMS OF REFERENCE TO 7TH CPC

The Cabinet is likely to set the terms of reference of the 7th Pay Commission this week, paving the way for salary revision of over 50 lakh  central government employees.

The matter will be finalised at the proposed meeting as the government wants to settle the matter before model code of conducts are notified ahead of the general election, scheduled in April-May this year.The government has already approved the composition of the commission for revision of salaries of central government employees, including Railways and Defence. It would also revise the remuneration for 30 lakh pensioners.

Former Supreme Court Judge Ashok Kumar Mathur, who also headed the Armed Forces Tribunal, will head the 7th Pay Commission. It has been mandated to submit its report in two years and its recommendations are to be implemented from January 1, 2016. The other members of the Commission include Oil Secretary Vivek Rae (full time Member), NIPFP Director Rathin Roy (part- time Member) and OSD in Expenditure Department Meena Agarwal (Secretary).
