The 7th Pay Commission was implemented in the year 2016 and came as a relief to the existing 5th Pay Commission. However, the increase in the teacher's pay is yet to be reflected on the paycheck. 

Even though it was implemented in 2016, teachers are still getting paid according to the 5th Pay Commission. The Bombay University and College Teachers Union (BUCTU) has written to the authorities expressing their discontent about the same. According to the union, the difference between the 5th Pay Commission and 7th Pay Commission is about ₹25,000 which the teachers are being deprived of.

Further, there have been very less new recruitments and therefore a lot of burdens is upon the existing teachers. Civic, unaided school and junior college teachers claim they are currently being paid half of what aided school teachers receive. 

Chairperson of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) Education COmmittee Anjali Naik stated that they have already passed the request to the senior authorities and the teachers are expected to get their pay according to the 7th Pay Commission from the month of November.
