The National Anomaly Committee (NAC) would submit a report on pay hike by December 15 and thereafter the report will be sent for Cabinet approval.
Due to this, minimum pay is likely to come into effect from April 2018. It is being expected that the minimum pay of central government employees will go up to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000.
However, some media reports also claimed that the minimum wage of central government employees may rise to Rs 26,000. Around 48 lakh central government employees are eagerly waiting for the pay hike, and the delay has also upset them.
The National Anomaly Committee (NAC) was formed to look into various pay related anomalies arising out of the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations.
The panel is being headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and has members of both the official and staff side.
An order issued by the DoPT said, “It has been decided to set up the anomaly committee of the National Council (Joint Consultative Machinery) consisting of representatives of the official side and the staff side to settle any anomalies arising out of the implementation of the Pay Commission’s recommendations”.
Earlier in June, the Union Cabinet had approved recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission with 34 modifications. The increased allowances came into effect from January 1, 2017, which was based on the recommendations of the Committee on Allowances (COA).
