7th CPC : Will the minimum pay and fitment factor be revised ?

Central Govt. notified Revised Pay Rules 2016 and issued order for payment of revised pay along with arrears recently. 
Govt. employees are eagerly waiting for revised pay in cash but slightly disappointed as the allowance components are not going to increase as of now.
But the most relevant point is whether the Govt. will consider enhancement of minimum pay or fitment factor at all ? The Union leaders are demanding that they got concrete assurance from the ministers regarding consideration of hike in minimum pay and fitment formula but it is not available in any press release, Gazette Notification of Revised Pay Rules 2016 or Finmin O.M.
The committee to look into allowances formed and likely to meet soon and they have to submit their opinion in a time bound manner of four months.
But despite several request from the leaders, Govt. yet to form any so called "High Power Committee" to consider the issues. The question arises about the withdrawal of strike without any real achievement.

The additional expenditure of Rs 72 crore includes Rs 69 crore towards salary component and Rs 13 crore for pension fund.

Replying to a question tabled by Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai, Parsekar said that doubts should be not raised about government's intention in implementing 7th pay commission.

government will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on the pattern of the central government, state Finance Minister Abhimanyu said today (July 29).
A committee, constituted by the state government, was studying the report of Madhavan Commission, which would also be implemented in the larger interest of the employees as it would directly benefit 60,000 to 65,000 employees, he said.
In a major bonanza for over 8.77 lakh Gujarat government employees and pensioners ahead of next year’s assembly polls, Chief Minister Anandiben Patel on Sunday announced the implementation of 7th Pay Commission from August 1.
Over 4.65 lakh Gujarat government employees and more than 4.12 lakh pensioners would benefit from this decision, a release from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said. However, the state government employees will not get pay hike benefits from January 1 this year as accepted by the Centre, instead it will be effective from August 1.
“Chief Minister Anandiben Patel has accepted the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission and announced to implement it in the state from August 1,” it said.
The Centre had on July 25 notified the implementation of 7th Pay Commission for Central Government employees from January 1. As per the release, the new hike will benefit employees and pensioners of state government, panchayats and granted institutions in Gujarat.
“Employees of class-4 to class-1 will now get a hike of 14.60 per cent to 25 per cent in their salaries,” it added.
As the Centre is now expected to start deliberations to decide the hike in allowances, the state government will take appropriate decision about allowances as per the announcement by the Centre, added the release.
Earlier, Gujarat government spokesperson and state Finance Minister Saurabh Patel had said that the government may have to bear an extra-burden of Rs 6,000 crore annually if it decides to implement the pay hike suggested by the 7th Pay Commission.
