Following report is the view of a credit company, published in NDTV.
The 7th Pay Commission is likely to raise the salaries of government employees by up to 40 per cent, said Neelkanth Mishra, India equity strategist of Credit Suisse. The Pay Commission will submit its recommendations in October and it will be implemented by next year.

"As the Pay Commission numbers come through there could be a 30-40 per cent increase for each  individual. It won't be as big as last time because it was driven by a lot of arrears but definitely a large number of government employees will come into the pay bracket which can afford to have, for example,  four-wheelers," he said in an interview with NDTV.
