All Graduates Will Get 20,430 Salary In This State; 10th Pass Will Get Rs 17,069 Salary/Month For Govt Jobs
A couple of days back, we informed you about a recent recommendation made under the 7th Pay Commission, as per which over 50 lakh central employees were expected to get a salary hike by the end of this month.
Additionally, in March 2020, the Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur informed the nation that the Dearness Allowance of Central Govt employees and its pensioners will be revised and hiked by 4%, under the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and will be effective from Jan 4, 2020.
However, due to the unprecedented advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy fell into sudden crisis and went torrid, which led to the government freezing the DA hike for its employees from January 2020 to June, 2020.
Now, the Delhi government has enhanced the monthly dearness allowance for its unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled and other category workers, under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
Monthly Wage Hike for These Government Employees
Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia ensured that timely wages would be received by the Government workers even during the Covid crisis.
These monthly wages have been fixed for unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled workers. It has been reported that the revised minimum wages, along with the DA will be applicable to these workers, in effect from October 1, 2020.
The monthly fixed wages for these government employees are listed below:
- Unskilled workers: Rs 15,492 or Rs 596 per day,
- Semi-skilled workers: Rs 17,069 or Rs 657 per day, and
- Skilled workers: Rs 18,797 or Rs 723 per day.
It has also been reported that minimum wage rates for clerical and supervisory staff employees have also been hiked by the government.
- Such employees having no matriculation will receive monthly wages of Rs 17,069,
- Employees who have matriculation but not graduated will get Rs 18,797 per month, and
- Graduate employees will receive a monthly wage of Rs 20,430.
Dearness Hike of 4% for Central Govt Employees Delayed
The dearness allowance is revised twice every year in the months of April and October. However this year, due to the sudden economic crisis caused due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the DA could not be revised in April.
In March 2020, the Union Cabinet had hiked the DA by 4%, from 17% to 21% for over 50 lakh central government employees, along with its pensioners.
This has led these Central government employees and pensioners to receive the DA at current rates, i.e. 17%.
The Central government also announced to suspend the dearness allowance hike until July 2021.
However, the Government has stated any hike in DA due to revision on July 1, 2021 will take into account the previous hikes as well.
