Rumours on 7th Pay Commission begin circulating in Social Media



“A copy of one fake document containing the matter related to the 7th Pay Commission surfaced in the social media yesterday.”



A crucial document containing the signatures of four members, including the chairman and secretary of the 7th Pay Commission was released on the Social Media, creating a buzz. The document, titled “Report of Seventh Central Pay Commission Highlights” contained the seal of the Central Government, stated that it would be submitted on September 1, 2015. The report showed three pages of the document. At the end of it, there were signatures, along with names and designations of four members of the Pay Commission, including the chairman and secretary.



The document also contained the recommendations of Revised Pay Scale Structure for all groups of Central Government employees. In addition to abolishing the Grade Pay Structure, the new minimum pay scale has been fixed at Rs.21,200. There is also indicated to provide a six percent annual increment.

There is brief information on HRA, CEA, Pay Fixation and Increment. There is no information about the person/s who had released the document. Most importantly, the information provided in the document is hard to believe.

The 7th Pay Commission was all set to submit its report to the Central Government towards the end of September, but the Centre has given it an extension of four more months. According to the government, the decision was made after the committee requested for additional time to prepare the final report.

For the past few weeks, the curiosity of Central Government employees about the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission has increased. This is reflected by the increased searches on the internet for any information on the new Pay Commission. They are eagerly reading up all kinds of reports, analysis, and comments on the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on topics like new pay scale, promotions, and revised allowances. They are also expressing their opinions on such articles.

There is nothing wrong in writing articles about the 7th Pay Commission based on personal opinions and aspirations. But, there is nothing funny about producing a fake document and releasing it on the internet.

Pros and Cons of extending the term of 7th Pay Commission


7th pay commission benefits

Recently the central government announced the extension of term of 7th pay commission by four months till 31st December 2015. By the time there were news started coming about seventh Pay Commission that it would ask one month extension to submit the report, Unexpectedly the central government itself granted four month extension to 7th central pay commission in its Cabinet Meeting held on 26th August 2015



One day before the announcement made by central government on granting extension to the pay commission, according to PTI news report, Justice A.K.Mathur, Chairman, 7th Pay Commission, said that by the end of September 2015 the Pay commission report would be submitted to the government.



Why the central government granted four month extension when the commission itself if asked one month time?

What will happen if the 7th pay commission submits its reports on 31st December 2015?

Before to answer that, It will be very useful to know that what happened in sixth pay commission, after submission of report and how much time it took to get announced the implementation of pay commission recommendation.


  • The Sixth Central Pay commission was set up by Union Cabinet of India on 5th October 2006. The Commission, headed by Justice B.N.Srikrishna.The Other members of the commission were Prof. Ravindra Dholakia, Mr. J.S.Mathur and Member-Secretary Ms Sushama Nath, IAS.
  • The Pay Commission submitted its report to Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on 24 March 2008.
  • The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government headed by Manmohan Singh, approved the Sixth Pay commission recommendations with some modifications. In the cabinet meeting held on 14th August 2008, the Union Cabinet headed by Manmohan Singh gave its approval for implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission.
  • It was announced that the revised pay scales will come into effect from 1/1/2006 and revised rates of allowances from 1/9/2008.
  • The Gazette Notification for implementation of sixth pay commission published on 29th August, 2008.

SEE : Cabinet Approval for implementation of sixth pay commission recommendations

From the above reference it is known that after submission of report it will take six month time to get its approval from Central Government for implementation of pay commission recommendation.

The decision of extending the term of seventh pay commission could be a major blow to central government employees by the way as follows

  1.  The 7th pay commission has been made to submit its report on 31st December 2015. The stipulated time is extended as 22 Months instead of 18 months for 7th pay commission to submit its report
  2.  As the central government would like to ground upon the Precedents and it will take six month time from the date of submission of report to announce its approval for implementation of 7th pay commission recommendations
  3. So the Cabinet approval for implementation of 7th pay commission recommendation will be granted by the Month of June 2016
  4. Only the Revised Pay Scale will come into effect from 1.1.2016
  5. The revised rate of allowances will come into effect from prospective date that is with effect from the day of Order is issued.
  6. So the central Government employees will be losing the benefit of revised rate of allowances for the period of six months , which they supposed to get from 1.1.2016,  provided the order for implementation of 7th pay commission will be issued on 1.7.2016.
