Increase of fitment factor and minimum pay for Central employees - real picture

Many websites/blogs and a section of media is being flooded with possible increase of minimum pay and fitment factor for central Govt. employees for a considerable long period of time.

Some of these agencies even declared the date of effect as 1st April 2018. As per their prediction,
1. Fitment factor to be increased from 2.57 to 3 
2. Minimum pay to be hiked from Rs 18,000 to 21/26,000
3. The hike will be effective only for employees upto level 5
But as per reply given by Minister of State (Finance) in Rajya Sabha on 6th March 2018, Govt. is not considering any change in these issues. So , we urge our viewers not to be misguided and expect any betterment in pay as of now.

Linking of Aadhar with various services : Deadline extended by Supreme Court

  • SC extends March 31 deadline of Aadhaar linking till it gives its order
  • New Delhi, Mar 13 (PTI) The Supreme Court on Tuesday extended the March 31 deadline for linking Aadhaar with various services till the five-judge constitution bench delivers its judgement on petitions challenging the validity of the biometric scheme and the enabling law

    A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra had on March 7 said it may not be possible to decide by March 31 the batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act

    The bench, which also comprised justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, had earlier said that since the matter would have implications on financial institutions, like banks and stock exchange, it would create a huge problem of compliance if the deadline was extended at the last moment

    On December 15 last year, the apex court had extended till March 31 the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various services and welfare schemes

    Former Karnataka High Court judge Justice K S Puttaswamy had told the apex court on February 22 that several deaths had reportedly taken place due to starvation on account of glitches in the Aadhaar-based public distribution system and the court must consider granting them compensation

    Earlier, the top court had observed that the alleged defect of citizens' biometric details under the Aadhaar scheme being collected without any law could be cured by subsequently bringing in a statute

    It had said that the Centre came out with the law in 2016 to negate the objection that it was collecting data since 2009 without any authorisation, but the issue which needed consideration was what would happen if the data collected earlier, had been compromised.
