CBSE chief Rajesh Kumar Chaturvedi was on Thursday given the additional charge of chief of the implementation cell of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

Chaturvedi will serve as Joint Secretary in the cell for three months or till appointment of a regular incumbent, an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training said.

The implementation cell was set up by the Finance Ministry in November last year. As per the Ministry’s order, the cell is to be headed by Joint Secretary with the help of nine other staff.

The Union Cabinet had last month accepted almost all the recommendations of the pay panel.

Chaturvedi, a 1987 batch IAS officer of Madhya Pradesh cadre, was recently appointed as the Chairman of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

The pay panel had in November last year recommended 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels, the lowest in 70 years. The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008. The Seventh Central Pay Commission recommended changes in the pay of around 1 crore individuals — 33 lakh central government employees, 14 lakh armed forces personnel, and 52 lakh pensioners.
