7th Pay commission-Profile of Chairman and Members
The Chairman and its Members of 7th Central Pay Commission have been appointed and resolution in this regard yet to be published by central government.
Apart from constitution of pay revising committee, the Terms of Reference of 7th pay commission would play a vital role in evolving proper pay structure for central government employees and pensioners and all the employees of state governments too, as all the state governments have been forced to fallow the 7th CPC recommendations. Though the pay commission will prepare a questionnaire to get feedback from all the staff associations, unions and federations and from common public to work out accordingly to finalize the pay package of government employees, the attitude of its Members towards functioning of government organizations and work ethics of government servants will be the deciding factor in writing the fate of the government servants for the next ten years. So it is important to know the short profile of Chairman and Members of 7th Pay Commission to presume the trend of the 7th CPC report
