There is plenty to be appreciated about the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. But with any such change, the real challenges do not usually emanate from the recommendations but from the implementation.
A shift in the way we think about performance evaluations has been taking place in the world of human resources. It's pretty exciting stuff. Some go as far as to argue that the performance appraisal system itself is a waste of time. But what I don't see is the basic question--the reasons for why the appraisal process is as such a failure. I would argue that the reason for this failure is not the process but the way managers are equipped to run the process.
