7th Central Pay Commission: Post Budget 2023, Govt employees may get BIG GOOD NEWS - minimum salary likely to rise


Government employees argue that even after the increase in DA, there should be an increase in the basic salary because the salary increases on this basis. Earlier it was reported that the central government is also likely to hike the dearness allowance (DA) of government employees in March 2023, effective January 1.


The minimum salary of government employees salaries is expected to be increased after the presentation of the Union Budget 2023. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is scheduled to deliver the Budget Speech for 2023 on February 1, Zee News Hindi has reported. Parliament's budget session will begin on January 31. According to reports, it is believed that the government may revise the fitment factor of the government employees salaries. As of now the common fitment factor stands at 2.57 times.

The government employees have been demanding the government to hike the fitment factor to 3.68. The increase will raise the wage from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000.

7th Pay Commission: Here is the calculation after probable hike in fitment factor


If the government increases the fitment factor 3 times, then the salary of the employees excluding allowances will be 18,000 X 2.57 = Rs 46,260. At the same time, if the demands of the employees are accepted, then the salary will be 26000 X 3.68 = Rs 95,680. If the government accepts 3 times fitment factor, then the salary will be 21000 X 3 = Rs 63,000.
