Will the 7th Central Pay Commission present an Interim Report to the Central Government?

Why are central government employees so keen to know about the interim report?

A few months ago, excitement was sparked by an opinion expressed by the Karnataka Pensioners Association’s chief, Ramnath Rao, after his meeting with the members of the 7th Pay Commission.

He said that the chairman of the 7th Pay Commission had told him that an interim report would be presented only if the Government gives its direction.

Last month, on the 25th, the Ministry of Finance presented a written reply to a question raised during the Parliamentary session. The reply stated that the Government had given complete autonomy to the Pay Commission to function without any interference from them. The Commission has, until now, not presented any report to the Government. And, as stated in the Terms of Reference, the Commission will submit its report to the Government within the stipulated time.
