Expected 7th Pay Commission Pay Scales

With the announcement of 7th pay commission by finance Minister P. Chidambaram, thanks to the upcoming elections, 50 lakh Central Government and 30 lakhs pensioners will benefit the hike in salary, allowances.Pay commission is set up every 10 years. Seventh pay commission will be effective w.e.f. 01.01.2016.Although the 7th Pay Commission chairperson and its members have yet not been finalized yet people have started to make estimates about the expected 7th Pay Commission pay scales.All the pay commissions analyze various aspects like economic conditions of the country, government’s financial resources, comparison of pay with the public sector and private sector and state government pay structure before recommending a pay structure.In order to accurately predict the revised pay structure one has to go through tons of data consisting of current economic condition, strength of the work force and working condition etc.

But by analyzing all the pay commission reports there was an interesting common thing among all the pay commission pay structures i.e. there was an average three times increase in the revised pay recommended by all the the pay commissions which was eventually implemented by the government.

Therefore based on this average increase of 3 times across different pay scales, we have made our expected pay scales for seventh pay commission based on the trends of salary and allowances revised in every pay commission, though these are just expectations.

As we all know that in 6th pay commission pay bands and grade pay concept was introduced first time. Therefore we assume that this concept of pay bands and grade pay will continue this time as well.

Here are the expected 7th pay commission pay scales shown in the table given below.
