Government had no plans to increase the minimum wage under 7th Pay Commission

New Delhi, November 26: After reports emerged that the government had no plans to increase the minimum wage under 7th Pay Commission, hopes of Central government employees were completely crushed. But a large number of government employees who still have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi are trying to meet him soon.
“We have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are sure that he will try to keep a good industrial relation in the country and will fulfil our demands,” said one of the union member on the condition of anonymity.

Earlier this week a Business Standard report said that there are slim chances of the government revising the minimum basic pay are true. The government staff unions have been demanding that their minimum pay is hiked to Rs 26,000 from Rs 18,000 that was defined on recommendations from 7th Central Pay Commission
