The minimum pay in central government with effect from January 1, 2016 will now be Rs 18,000 per month; at the highest level, it will be Rs 2.5 lakh.

"With regard to fixation of pay of the employees in the new Pay Matrix as on January 1, 2016, the existing pay (Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay) in the pre-revised structure as on December 31, 2015, shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57," the notification said.

There shall be two dates for grant of increment - January 1 and July 1 every year - instead of the existing July 1 only. Employees will be entitled to only one annual increment on either of these two dates depending on the date of appointment, promotion or grant of financial upgradation, it said.

The Cabinet had last month decided on pay increase for central government employees and pensioners, that is estimated to cost the exchequer Rs 1.02 lakh crore annually.
