Central govt employees protest pay commission, call it humiliation

Chennai: Barely hours after the union cabinet approved the seventh pay commission, central government employees sat down to protest over the less-than-expected pay rise that they had been given.
The union cabinet had approved the seventh pay commission to central government employees and pensioners on Wednesday. While the union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley tweeted his congratulations on a 'historic rise' for employees and pensioners and pay experts anticipating a boost in consumption and demand for consumer goods, the central government employees in Chennai were sore about what they called a meagre and nominal pay hike.

Speaking on the implementations of the seventh pay commission, the Defence Minister stated that he too had made certain recommendations and revealed that some of them had been implemented.

Meanwhile the protesting employees say that the present hike of 14.2 percent was the least in the last 60 years and see it as a humiliation. Though the IMF and World Bank had insisted that the pay hike should not be more than 16 percent, the employees stated that they had expected the government to do better than that, but are now disappointed and feel let down.

They are now threatening a nationwide stir to register their protest.
