    It was first expected that there would be some announcement in the Budget. The government has however decided not to go in for a full budget as there is no time to get it passed in Parliament. This would mean that there would be a vote of account or interim budget that would be presented on February 1 2019. The budget is not expected to have any major announcement on issues relating to the CG employees.

    Hence some decision is expected in the Cabinet meeting. It may not be a big announcement, but there could be some good news regarding the 7th Pay Commission.
