Prime Minister Narendra Modi will intervene to sort out the deadlock regarding the 7th Pay Commission. With talks regarding a pay hike and increase in fitment factor stuck in a limbo, the final call would not be taken by the PM himself.
As a first step, incentives would be doled out to the long serving employees. While talks regarding the pay hike would continue, Modi has asked all PSUs to speed up promotions. He has also asked the PSUs to speed up the promotions and introduce a sabbatical policy for good performers.
The sabbatical policy and promotions for top performing employees would bring about a smile on their faces. It would also help them perform better and avoid a burn-out. In a bid to ensure that this reforms reaches the employees faster, Modi has ordered the setting up of a panel. The panel would need to come up with a frame-work within three months.
The panel would then make its presentation to the Prime Minister. The first meeting of the panel will be held on June 4. The panel would comprise members from Oil India, BHEL and NTPC.
Sources tell OneIndia that this shows that the government is not averse to the concerns of the Central Government employees who have been waiting for some good news regarding the 7th Pay Commission. The source also added that with the economy looking stronger, there is no reason why the government will not increase the basic pay beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.
