The committee will make recommendations to enable CPSEs to become "modern, professional, consumer-friendly, commercially successful and competitive entities committed to national development goals and dedicated to service of the people," as per the terms.
"The committee will provide its recommendations on the matter to the government, covering Board level functionaries, below-Board level executives and non-unionized supervisory staff of CPSEs.

The seventh central pay commission has recommended a 23.55 per cent hike in the cumulative earnings of serving and retired central government employees, saddling the Union government with a bill of Rs 1.02 lakh crore in the next financial year. The figure of 23.55 per cent covers the increases in pay, allowances and pension. However, the recommended raise in basic pay is only 14.27 per cent – the lowest in 70 years. The basic pay determines various allowances. The previous commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.
