Delhi, the discussions of the 8th Pay Commission coming for a long time are going on. One gets to hear something or the other every day they bring them. But there is doubt about when it will be implemented or whether it will be done or not. But now a new update has come from the Central Government regarding this. The Modi government has made it clear that the Eighth Pay Commission will not come.
In Parliament, Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Choudhary has termed any such claim on behalf of the government as baseless. In which it is being said to implement the 8th Central Pay Commission for revision in salary, allowances and pension of central employees and pensioners. The Union Minister of State for Finance, in a written reply to a question in Parliament, said that no such proposal is under consideration with the government.
When Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Choudhary was asked whether it is true that the government is contemplating to implement the 8th Pay Commission to revise the salary, allowances and pension of Central Government employees and pensioners. So he said that there is no such scheme of the government, it is not going to come. The Union Minister of State for Finance said that for this it has been suggested that there should be changes in the pay metrics from time to time and for this there is no need for the next Pay Commission. In such a situation, it can be reviewed and amended on the basis of the Acroyd formula.
It was expected that in early August, the central government may increase the employee and pensioner DA and DR by up to 4 percent due to rising inflation. But even this has not been decided yet. If the government increases the DA of central employees, then there will be a huge increase in their salary.
