QRant: Why the 7th CPC Is Not As Great As it Seems

No performance filters for central government employees as all of them will receive blanket hikes.

1 min read

The 7th Central Pay Commission was approved by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday. The central government employees may well be singing on their way to the bank but what about taxpayers?

Taxpayers will be burdened by a whopping Rs 1 lakh crore. To top it off, there are no performance filters! Yes, these are all blanket hikes. PM Modiji, you wake up at 4 am, jetset across the world and still get time to do yoga. THAT’s efficiency. So if you’re not going to stand for quality control, who is?
