7th CPC for Defence Forces Personnel
7th Central Pay Commission award, in many ways, has been a revolutionary due to the active involvement of the environment. This was for the first time when we have transited from Pay Bands to a Pay Matrix system. The method of awarding increments has been modified to a pre calculated stage system in the Defence Pay Matrix, thereby ensuring uniformity. Several old allowances have been merged, some allowances abolished and new ones have been granted.
Aim is to provide a ready reckoner to ensure that full benefits of Pay Commission Award are exploited by the environment. It will serve as a guideline for the men and women in uniform to make themselves aware of the 7th CPC benefits and entitlements.
