“We urge upon the Chairman of Seventh Central Pay Commission to expedite completion of recommendations and get it finalised by the stipulated time so that there is no delay in its implementation in favour of both Centre and state government employees and pensioners,” National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) President Subash Shastri said.

In a memorandum sent to Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur (retd.), Chairman of the Seventh Central Pay Commission, Shastri appealed to recommend its report to state government as well, “So that the gap arising out of implementation of the Seventh Central Pay Commission recommendations does not mainly go against the interest of state government employees and pensioners.”

He also said that keeping in view the rising cost of living, the Pay Commission should effectively formulate strategies to deal with inflation.

Shastri earlier said that the pay commission should submit their report to the Central Government at appropriate time, so that it will enable to implement its report from 1st January, 2016.
