Members of the National Anomaly Committee looking into the pay hike beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission have been told to strike a balance while making a decision. The NAC which is all set to meet have been told that a wise decision should be taken so that all parties are satisfied. This was the advise given by top officials of the government. The NAC has been told to consider all aspects before taking a decision. The advise to the NAC is three-fold. It has been told to first ensure that the employees are happy. Secondly, it has been told that there should not be any job loss caused as a result of its decision. Thirdly the NAC has been advised to also keep in mind what is affordable to the Government of India. The NAC meet which was scheduled for October was postponed. While no fresh date has been given, sources say that the meeting is likely to take place only after the elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh are complete.
