3rd PRC Estimated Pay Scales for the CPSEs employees 2017

The government of India had implemented 2nd PRC report on 26 November 2008 which was applicable from 01.01.2007. The term of 2nd PRC is going to end on 31.12.2016. The employees of Central Public sector employees are waiting for their next pay revision which will come into force from 01.01.2017. The government of India already announced the formation of Committee for next pay revision in PSUs. The committee is headed by  Justice Satish Chandra (Retired) & It has to submit the report to Government within a period of six months from the date of constitution of the committee.



Based on the report & views of other departments final order will be issued by Department of Public Enterprises with the approval from Government. Now the question is how much one can expect salary hike after implementation of 3rd PRC report.

7th CPC benefit vs 3rd PRC

Although 3rd PRC & 7th CPC are entirely different but the fitment varies a little bit between both. In the 6th CPC fitment was 24 % for Central Government Employees & 2nd PRC, it was 30% for the CPSEs employee. Again in 7th CPC fitment is around 15% Which is applicable to Central Government Employees.

Expected increase in salary of PSU employees

By observing the previous record, we are assuming that employees of Public Sector Undertakings get 20% fitment benefit on their basic pay and D.A. So someone who is working on E1 pay scale (16400-40500) with current basic pay of 16400, after 3rd PRC his/her new basic pay would be like this

New pay = 16400 + 16400X120.3% + (16400 +16400X120.3%)X20%

=  16400 + 19729.2 + 7225.84

=  43355

After Rounding off the amount New, basic pay will be = 43360

On the basis of above facts, new pay scales for the executives of PSUs would be like below table

Most of the organizations recruit new engineers at the level of E1, E2 or E3. Here is the table which will provide you expected salary of fresh Graduates in top PSUs

Now we can conclude that where should a graduate engineer apply for the job.

  1. The CPSEs who are recruiting on existing 24900-50500 pay scales, they may provide starting basic pay of 65000 to fresh graduates. Name of these CPSEs are ONGC, NTPC, BPCL, IOCL, HPCL, BHEL, PGCIL, OIL, HAL
  1. The Companies like NHPC, CIL & MTNL which are appointing on 20600-46500, are going to provide initial basic of Rs 54000 for the engineers.
  2. Remaining PSUs which are recruiting young engineers on 16400-40500, they may provide the starting basic pay of 43300 to graduates.

So the difference in the salary of fresh engineers in companies mentioned in point 1 & 3, would be 50% after the implementation of 3rd PRC report. Hence every engineering student should try to get the job in the PSUs mentioned in point 1. Apart from the best initial basic pay, they provide around 50% perks allowances plus performance related pay.


Direct Formula for calculating revised basic pay

If some X is having the basic pay of Rs 15000. His/Her expected basic pay after 3rd PRC would be calculated by multiplying 2.64 on current basic pay.

His new basic from 01.01.2017 would be  in Rs = 15000X2.65

= 39600

Now you can easily calculate your expected basic pay after the implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL.
