New Delhi, Sep 25 (ANI): The Central Government on Wednesday announced the setting up of the seventh Central Pay Commission.

Finance Minister P. Chidambaram in a statement said here today that Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has approved the constitution of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

The fourth, fifth and sixth Central Pay Commissions' recommendations were implemented as follows: fourth Central Pay Commission on January 1, 1986; fifth Central Pay Commission on January 1, 1996 and sixth Central Pay Commission on January 1, 2006.
