According to a report, the Defence Pay Matrix, which was earlier divided into 24 stages is now extended to 40 stages similar to the Civil Pay Matrix.
Earlier in May, the Union Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, gave its go-ahead for the modifications under the 7th Pay Commission. The benefit of the proposed modifications would be available with effect from January 1, 2016, as it will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners. According to a rough estimate, the alone pension bill of the Central Government employees is likely to be Rs 1,76,071 crore.
On 29th June 2016, while approving the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, the Cabinet had also approved the changed method of pension revision recommended by the 7th Pay Commission for pre-2016 pensioners. 
Meanwhile, according to a number of reports, it seems central government employees have to wait for one more week to receive any update on the revised allowance structure as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.
The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (ECoS) is expected to take a final call next week after presenting their pinion in front of the Union Cabinet.
A total of 196 allowances was proposed under the 7th Pay Commission, and a Committee of Allowances was also formed under the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to screen them. Last month the Ashok Lavasa committee submitted its final report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in which it suggested to abolish 52 allowances and 36 other allowances to be incorporated with other allowances.
Here are the details of Minimum Pay Band of Central Government Employee under 7th Pay Commission:
