7th CPC: Arrears of salary hike under 7th Pay Commission to be paid in August

The central government is trying to balance out the burden of the 7th pay commission payout on the exchequer. As per reports, though the salaries of the government employees will be paid in July as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, the arrears from January 2016, will be disbursed only August onwards.

Implementation of new pay scales recommended by the 7th Pay Commission headed by AK Mathur estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore, or 0.7 percent of GDP, on the exchequer in 2016-17, government has said. 
7th Pay Commission: PMO not insensitive to higher payout for central govt employees 
The recommendations of the Pay Commission will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.
There are reports doing the round that government will payout arrears of only the salary component and not allowances. 
The employees are anticipating at least Rs 24,000 take-home salary per month.
In a meeting with the  BJP's  labour  wing  Bharatiya  Mazdoor Sangh, Jitendra Prasad, Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, had told the delegation that government would positively look into the demand of the central government employees. "The minister said we will consider the proposal of minimum pay of 24,000”, said Pawan Kumar, Regional Organizing Secretary.



  1. The ESM veteran community is more interested in the progress of the One Man Judicial Committee and it's progress on the anomalies in the diluted version of the OROP decided by the GOI. Instead of this important aspect, the outcome of the yet to be decided 7CPC implementation is coming to the fore n various blogs. And that is a waste of time and effort.

  2. 7th pay commission is applicable to defence pensioners or not. Kindly clarify
