Proposal by Union Housing &  Urban poverty alleviation Minister, Shri Ajay Maken of Seventh Pay Commission

Shri. Ajay Maken, union housing and urban poverty alleviation minister has taken up the central government employees demand for the setting up of the seventh pay panel. The minister has written a letter on March 14 and had asked that that a decision be "taken on priority" for constitution of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. "A notification for constitution of the 7th Central Pay Commission is the need of the bour, which is bound to have bearing upon about 20 million employees," the minister said. He concluded by emphasizing that setting up of the new pay panel was in "larger interest of government employees as well as the Congress"

Earlier, the government in parliament had told that there was no proposal as such in setting up of the 7th pay commission. The huge success of the strike conducted by the Confederation of Central Govt unions may have factored in the decision for the move.
