Following the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, the government has now ruled out the hike in pay matrix for top and mid level employees. The decision was taken by the Finance Ministry after going into various aspects following which it was said that these level of employees did not need it. The government feels that it has already reviewed the salaries and perks of Central Government employees above the pay matrix 5. Hence it was decided that they do not need higher pay matrix levels. With the government deciding to put in place the new pay revision structure, the 7th Pay Commission would be the last. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is expected to make this announcement soon.
