The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, chaired by Justice Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur, was submitted to the government in November 2015 and the recently approved hike in allowances has set the implementation to begin in July 2017. The key highlights of this commission and steps to calculate your salary are as follows:

- The Commission recommended that pre-service education/training need to be strengthened, especially for paramedic cadres
- The Commission recommended a proper data bank of health professionals should be created which should be updated periodically

How to calculate your salary:
1. Basic Pay= Pay as per pay band + Grade pay
2. Basic Pay * Fitment factor (Fitment factor is the index as per your grade pay)
3. Find the figure closest to the above amount in the column of the grade pay
4. Add TA, HRA and Medical Allowance to this

This figure is your new pay.

For example an employee H is presently drawing Basic Pay of 55,040 (Pay in the Pay Band 46340 + Grade Pay 8700 = 55040). After multiplying 55,040 with 2.57, a figure of 1,41,452.80 is arrived at. This is rounded off to 1,41,453. The level corresponding to GP 8700, the figure closest to 1,41,453 is 1,41,600
