The confirmation of the central government’s decision was conveyed by Minister of State for Finance P. Radhakrishnan in Lok Sabha.
NJAC’s Shiv Gopal Mishra, who led the negotiation over 7th Pay Commission on behalf of central government employees, expressed dissatisfaction over the government’s decision.
He said that the struggle for higher minimum pay will continue.
He also said that option of agitation is always open if negotiations fail.
