50 lakh serving central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners will be impacted by the Seventh Pay Commission, which is likely to recommend an average hike of 15% of basic salary, said a source.

The 900-page report is believed to have made made suggestions on parity of 36 organised `Group A’ services with the IAS, which has so far largely dominated superior positions in the central government.

One of the demands of the Group A services is to change the composition of the Civil Services Board which is responsible for central staffing. As of now this is controlled by IAS officers and has no representation from any other service. The pay panel may recommend changes that would ensure level playing field for all officers of Group A services.

The Seventh Pay Commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, was appointed by the previous UPA government in February 2014 for 18 months. Its terms was extended in August 2015 by four months till December 31, 2015. The recommendations of the commission would be implemented from January 1, 2016.

Its recommendation will guide how the salary and various allowances of central government employees will be revised besides improving their service condition. The report would also impact all states government employees after some modifications.

According to the Finance Ministry, the reports of Seventh Central Pay Commission may be implicated from April next year
