Is it true that the Empowered Committee submitted its Report to the Finance Ministry?
Some News websites claims that the Meeting of Empowered Committee of Secretaries took place on 14th June and the report was submitted to Finance Ministry.
The News further stated that the Cabinet Note was being prepared by Finance Ministry and it will be sent to Union Cabinet for its approval.
The Staff Side, however, were unable to confirm this news.
But the Agencies closely associated with the Ministry told, the Report of Empowered Committee was finalized and Cabinet Approval for Implementation of 7th Pay Commission Recommendation will be accorded in the first week of July 2016.
The report of the Empowered Committee will be reviewed by the Union Cabinet.
Presumably the ECoS Report will just be carrying the Views Expressed by all the Stakeholders. They, in fact, may not be expected to recommend the Government to increase the Pay and Allowances. So there will not be any modifications in recommendations of 7th Pay commission in the ECOS Report.
But it is expected the that the Prime Minister himself will come forward to announce the Increase and changes in recommendations of 7th CPC, keeping in mind of CG Employee’s dissatisfaction over recommendations of 7th CPC.
Until then it is announced Publicly by the authorities concerned, all the news about 7th Pay Commission have to be considered as just rumours.
