It is well-known that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has formed the government once again. Central government employees are eagerly anticipating a significant salary increase. The central government is expected to make a key decision regarding the 8th Pay Commission related to employee salaries.

Current and Proposed Salary Hike

  • Current Minimum Salary: ₹18,000
  • Proposed Minimum Salary: ₹26,000

Presently, the 7th Pay Commission is in effect. If the 8th Pay Commission is established, it may take around 12 to 18 months to implement its recommendations. This change could result in a substantial salary increase for employees. Along with the 8th Pay Commission, there are expectations that the central government might also increase the fitment factor.

Fitment Factor Increase

  • 7th Pay Commission Fitment Factor: 2.57 times
  • Proposed 8th Pay Commission Fitment Factor: 3.68 times

The minimum salary is currently ₹18,000. If the 8th Pay Commission is introduced and the fitment factor is significantly increased, it could raise the basic salary to ₹26,000. This would result in an immediate salary increase of ₹8,000 due to the fitment factor alone. Additionally, after the new cabinet is formed, if the DA (Dearness Allowance) increase exceeds 50%, it is expected to be merged into the basic salary, further increasing it.

Although there has been no official announcement from the central government regarding this matter, numerous media reports suggest that a significant salary hike for central government employees is imminent. If these changes are implemented, it would lead to a considerable increase in their salaries.
