New Delhi: The Seventh Pay Commission is likely to suggest linking pay with productivity with a focus on technology, skills and incentives, a move aimed at raising the productivity of central government employees.

The panel is also likely to recommend that in future additional remuneration be linked to increase in productivity.

The Seventh Pay Commission is expected to submit its recommendations by December and the central government asked the pay panel to look in to the issue of raising productivity and improving the overall quality of central government services in the country.

The Sixth Pay Commission had also said that steps should lead to improvement in the existing delivery mechanism by more delegation and de-layering and an emphasis on achieving quantifiable and concrete end results. Emphasis is to be on outcome rather than processes.

Accordingly, the Sixth Pay Commissions had also made several recommendations to enhance productivity and improve administration but previous UPA government failed to implement it.

Now, the central government advised the Seventh Pay Commission to be designated as Pay with a clear mandate to recommend measures to improve productivity of an employee.

The central government also said productivity per employee can be raised through the application of technology in public service delivery and in public assets created.

“Raising the skills of employees through training and capacity building also has a positive impact on productivity. The use of appropriate technology and associated skill development require incentives for employees to raise their individual productivities,” a central government financial panel said.

“The Seventh Pay Commission’s first task, therefore, would be identifying the right mix of technology and skills for different categories of employees. The next step would be to design suitable financial incentives linked to measurable performance,” an officer of the financial panel said.
