Minister of State for Finance P Radhakrishnan said, “no such proposals at present under consideration.”

In a reply to a question Lok Sabha, on January 05, Minister of State for Finance P Radhakrishnan, said that the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) formed National Anomaly Committee (NAC) in August, following the decision of the government on the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission has not yet met.

The minister came up with the remark while he was asking about submission of NAC’s interim report.

Radhakrishnan was also asked, “is government mulling not to form any Pay Commission for increasing salaries and allowances of central government employees and and pensioners in future?”

“Is the government considering adjusting salaries of employees and pensioners when Dearness Allowance (DA) crosses 50 percent?”

“Is the department of expenditure planning to take the responsibility to regularly monitor salaries and allowances of central go central government employees, and recommend the changes, if needed.

In the respect of above three questions, the minister said, “no such proposals at present under consideration.”

It was earlier reported that the NAC would soon submit its interim reports to the government but no minimum Pay and fitment formula would be included in the interim report.

It was further reported that the Centre was mulling not to form any Pay Commission for increasing salaries and allowances of central government employees and and pensioners in future. The government was also considering adjusting salaries of employees and pensioners when Dearness Allowance (DA) crosses 50 percent, instead of forming new pay commission.

The minister has so far said that no such proposals at present under consideration, insisting that he muted the government original views. But, sources said, the government will be reaching out to the central government employees unions not to form no Pay Commission in future and adjusting salaries of employees and pensioners when Dearness Allowance (DA) crosses 50 percent.
