Every Central Govt Employee is waiting to find out the changes in their pay scale. They are eager to know what the 7th CPC for Central Government Employees would recommend to the pay structure. Sensing this eagerness, Bloggers have been regularly coming up with their own versions of what the pay structure could be. Do not take those writings seriously sand authentically.
Based on all the changes right from the 1st CPC, until the 6th CPC, we have predicted a pay structure for Central Government Employees. Even though we weren’t keen on it, we have been receiving requests by email and comments. At a point, it became unavoidable. We just had to give our own interpretation too.
Since the basic pay of Central Government Employees has evolved from 260-950-3050-7730, the next change is expected to increase after the years, the basic pay hike by 2.5 times. Our Projected Pay Scale is expecting an increase of no more than 3 times.
It could be 260-950-3050-7730-22500..! (260-1973, 950-1986, 3050-1996, 7730-2006 & 22500-2016)
But more than the hike, everybody is hoping that the Grade Pay would be in proper series.
Everybody wants and hopes for a recommendation that prescribes a uniform Multiplication Factor (6th CPC 1.86) to all the categories of employees.

Verdict on 7th Pay Commission for Central Government Employees:
The wait of Central Government Employees for the higher allowances under 7th Pay Commission is getting a bit longer.
This is due to the cash shortage post demonetisation of the old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes.
Finance Minister Mr. Jaitley is expected to make some announcements. They would be regarding the higher allowances as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations after the budget for 2017-18.
The government has till deferred a hike in allowances to cut its spending bill. It is expected that economic growth for the current fiscal year to March 2017 could fall below the Reserve bank bank’s revised estimated at 7.1 percent.
The Government was planning to release the higher allowances as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
But due to Demonetisation, the cash crunch in the banks and even the market has hit hard the preparations of the government.
Government wants to start this payment of higher allowances under 7th Pay Commission to its employees. The employees list contains 48 lakh employees and 52 lakh pensioners.
But this cash shortage has compelled the government to delay it for sometime.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a few months ago scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes. This was done in a bid to flush out all the cash earned through illegal activities, or earned legally but never disclosed to the taxman.
This sudden move caused a lot of cash shortage. It is also owing to long queues outside banks and ATMs to exchange, deposit and withdrawal.
The government is now in a fear to release higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission. They think that it might lead to longer queues outside the banks and ATMs.
While the government is paying a higher basic pay with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016 to its employees.
