7th Pay Commission Latest News: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi assured both teaching and non-teaching staff that they would get revised pay as per the recommendations of the 7th pay commission for which the government has set up a three-member pay committee. “They don’t need to go on strike for this as the government is sensitive towards them,” Modi said, while speaking at the valedictory function of Patna University centenary celebrations at Bapu Sabhagar.

He also informed that of the total 3,364 vacant posts of teaching staff, the process for appointment of 2500 teachers in 20 subjects has already been completed.

He also told students, who are pursuing higher education by availing loan (Under ‘Students Credit Card’) that they can repay the loan after getting job. “Unless and until they get job after completing their studies, they don’t have to worry for repayment of loan amount. They don’t have to worry whether it takes two or four years in getting job,” PTI quoted the minister as saying.

The development comes at a time when over 50 thousand Central government employees are still waiting for announcement of further hike in the minimum pay. However, if media reports are to believed, the belief of the Central Government employees has gained momentum with Arun Jaitley resuming office as the Finance Minister.
