There is no change in 7th pay commission pay matrix
The Central Government Employees expected that there would be change in 7th pay commission Pay Matrix, since the Empowered Committee may recommend for increasing Minimum pay and Fitment Factor .
But the Union Cabinet has not said anything about Empowered committee Report and approved the Pay scale recommended by 7th Pay commission without any change. So there is no need for modifying the Pay Matrix recommended in 7th CPC report. Now the same 7th CPC Pay Matrix will be used to determine the Pay Scale of central government employees.
Revised 7th CPC Pay Matrix for Central Government Employees
Ministry of Finance has issued Revised 7th CPC Pay Matrix for Central Government Employees vide its OM dated 16th May 2017 with some modification in Level 13.
The Pay Matrix came along with 7th CPC Implementation order was also same except the Level 13.
Because Index of Rationalisation (IOR ) 2.67 was used to fix the Pay matrix Levels 10 to 13A . But the Level 13 is calculated with IOR 2.57. hence it has to be revised.
The IOR of Level-13 of Civil Pay Matrix has to be enhanced from 2.57 to 2.67. Accordingly, the Civil Pay Matrix as contained in Annexure-1 mentioned in para 6 of the aforesaid Resolution dated the 25th July, 2016 shall be revised. The revised Civil Pay Matrix is given below.

There are Four running Pay bands in Sixth pay Commission with 19 Grade Pay Scale.
Since the existing pay bands cover specific groups of employees such as PB-1 for Group `C’ employees, PB-2 for Group `B’ employees and PB-3 onwards for Group `A’ employees, any promotion from one pay band to another is akin to movement from one group to the other. These are significant jumps in the career hierarchy in the Government of India. Rationalisation has been done to ensure that the quantum of jump, in financial terms, between these pay bands is reasonable.
This has been achieved by applying ‘index of rationalisation’ from PB-2 onwards on the premise that with enhancement of levels from Pay Band 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and onwards, the role, responsibility and accountability increases at each step in the hierarchy. The proposed pay structure reflects the same principle. Hence, the existing entry pay at each level corresponding to successive grades pay in each pay band, from PB-2 onwards, has been enhanced by an ‘index of rationalisation’
