More than one crore government employees and pensioners are eagerly waiting for the formation of the 8th Pay Commission. The commission may submit recommendations to the government for increasing the salaries of employees. The 8th Pay Commission is likely to be implemented from January 2026. Historically, the central government has been implementing the recommendations of the new pay commission every decade. The 7th Pay Commission was implemented in January 2016. The first Pay Commission was formed in January 1946.

It is important to note that till now the Government of India has not made any formal announcement regarding the formation and implementation of the 8th Pay Commission. In December last year, the government had mentioned that at that time there was no plan to set up the 8th Central Pay Commission. However, now the Lok Sabha elections are over. In such a situation, there is a strong possibility that the government will move forward towards the formation of the commission. Usually after its formation, it takes about 12 to 18 months for the Pay Commission to submit its recommendations.

More than 1 crore people will benefit

When implemented, the 8th Pay Commission is expected to benefit around 49 lakh government employees and 68 lakh pensioners. Their remuneration is likely to be revised with the increase in the fitment factor. Reports suggest that the fitment factor will be set at 3.68 times the current value. Since the minimum basic pay of government employees is Rs 18,000, this hike will increase the basic pay by Rs 8,000 to Rs 26,000.

The fitment factor is important in deciding the salary and pay matrix of employees under the 8th Pay Commission. Its job will be to adjust the existing 7th CPC salary with the proposed 8th CPC pay scale.

The 7th Pay Commission introduced a fitment factor of 2.57 times. This led to an average increase of 14.29 per cent in the salary of employees. This fixed the minimum pay scale at Rs 18,000. The 8th Pay Commission is expected to help eliminate pay disparities between different employee groups and reduce the impact of inflation.

Many other benefits are also expected

Many other benefits are expected from the 8th Pay Commission. This includes revised pay scales and better retirement benefits. Apart from government employees, it will also affect military personnel and pensioners.

The aim of the 8th Pay Commission is to eliminate pay disparities between employee groups and to reduce the impact of inflation. As expectations are rising, the 8th Pay Commission is going to be an important milestone towards equal remuneration and financial security for government employees and retired employees.
