The year-long wait is over for 50 lakh central government employees as the Union Cabinet approved recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission on allowances, reported news agency ANI quoting sources.
It has been four weeks since the Empowered Committee of Secretaries handed over its proposals regarding allowances awarded by the 7th Pay Commission to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who was to present them before the Cabinet for approval. It has not been possible due to either him or Prime Minister Narendra Modi being on frequent foreign visits during the last month.
Here are updates on Cabinet decision on 7th Pay Commission and changes in allowance structure:
