Are you a Central government employee and waiting for the salary hike? Then, we have good news for you. According to media reports, Narendra Modi government may consider the long-standing demand of the CG employees very soon.  

The Central government employees, waiting for a hike in the minimum pay under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, are likely to get some good news now ahead of Dussehra. 

It is also known that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is well aware of the lakh of CG employees demand and is expected to call a meeting soon to take a decision in this regard, as per sources. 

CG Employees 7th Pay Commission- 

Interestingly, the former Home Minister Rajnath Singh has held a discussion with some officials who are concerned to look into the minimum pay hike demand of the Central government employees. 

As per media reports, the Dearness Allowances (DA) for the second half of 2019 may be increased to 17 per cent which will thus be reflected in the October salary of the Central government employees. 

Therefore, if the government increases the minimum pay and hike the DA of the CG employees ahead of Dussehra, it will be considered as a double bonanza for them. 

The Central government employees have been demanding a hike in their present basic pay since long. They are currently getting a minimum pay of Rs 18,000 per month and are demanding an increase upto Rs 26,000 per month, according to media reports.
