Clarification Regarding 7th CPC Minimum Pay & Fitment Factor

Recently a news on Minimum Pay Increase was doing the rounds on social media. Increasing of Minimum Wage from Rs.18000 to Rs.21000 is speculated is some websites and it went viral in social media. But there was no any substantial evidence or facts has been so far posted in any website to prove this information is correct.
But real fact is that the Staff Side National Council JCM itself has pleaded the Central Government to consider to increase the Minimum Pay to Rs.19760/- It has furnished the required details in its letter to the Government to Justify their Claim of the minimum Pay should not be less than Rs.19670. It repeatedly insisted the Government to discuss the Minimum Pay increase issue with them .

But the government has not ready to show any sign of accepting this demand so far apart from telling that the Committee will expedite, examine etc. When this was a situation, it is very difficult to understand the good news that the Central Government is all set to hike the minimum pay from 18000 to Rs.21000 sooner or later !

However if the NCJCM Staffside or NJCA is in a position to put the greatest possible pressure to the Government, this genuine demand can be won. In that case we can expect that the Minimum pay will be fixed at Rs.19670 as demanded by NCJCM with uniform Fitment factor 2.81 for all pay Scales
