Following the meeting, the announcement on implementation of 7th Pay Commission was announced. The state government had in 2019 asked all civic bodies to start the process of implementing the 7th Pay Commission. Accordingly, many civic bodies started paying their employees as per the 7th Pay Commission. The general body of PMC passed a proposal for implementing 7th Pay Commission for its employees in March this year.

"The general body of the PMC had given its nod for implementing the pay commission and submitted the proposal to the urban development ministry for approval. We have followed up several times. This decision will bring a financial burden to the PMC but as municipal employees working for citizens, we need to consider their demands," PMC Mayor Murlidhar Mohol was quoted as saying.

While the revised salary is expected from coming December, PMC employees will get the difference in pay from January 1, 2016. PMC employees' salary will be increased once it gets revised under the 7th Pay Commission.
