According to the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, many symbolic auspicious news related to the minimum wage increase and the increase in retirement age for around 50 lakh government employees will come before the 2019 general elections. However, the government had earlier denied any increase in the minimum basic pay beyond the Seventh Pay Commission.

A report from the Sen Times said that the BJP government may agree with its demands to return to power in 2019. It has been said in the report that the government will follow the footprints of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan who recently retired age 62 from the current 60 years

An officer of the senior government told Sen. "Before taking a leaf from Chauhan before the general elections next year, the BJP-led central government is planning to implement the increment of the Central Government employees."

It has also been said that in order to monitor the footprints of the Madhya Pradesh government, the Center can work on the latest option to provide benefits to 50 lakh employees under the 7th Pay Commission.

The central government is reportedly considering increasing the retirement age of employees for two years. The government led by Shivraj Singh Chauhan has already done it.

With the latest step under the Seventh Pay Commission, the retirement age of the employees in the state of Madhya Pradesh has been increased to 62 years. First, it was 60 years.

At present, the Central Government employees are getting basic salary based on the formula of 2.57 of basic salary and if this major step has been taken, then it will come as a big news for the Central Government employees.

A fictitious factor is a number used by the 7th CPC, with which the basic pay in the 6th CPC rule (i.e. pay band + grade pay wages) multiplied to fix basic pay in revised pay structure (ie 7 CPC) is done. The fiat factor prepared by the 7th CPC is 2.57.

The Seventh Pay Commission recommended earlier Rs 18,000 as basic salary, but the employees have demanded it increase to Rs 26,000.
