Terming it as “disappointing”, the RSS-affiliated Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) has slammed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

“The report is disappointing on many counts. There is now a huge gap between the minimum and maximum pay. The minimum is kept at Rs 18,000, while the maximum is Rs 2.5 lakh. This gap should not be more than 1:10, but it is way above,” said BMS general secretary Vrijesh Upadhyay.

He said the anomalies of the fifth and sixth pay commissions have not been addressed. “It has not hiked the purchasing power to meet the expectations of the market,” he said, adding that it would not be able to provide necessary impetus to the manufacturers.
