The 's media editor Amol Rajan says the corporation is proposing a pay cap of £320,000 for its news presenters.
The UK pubcaster has faced a barrage of criticism since publishing the salaries of its top-earning on-air talent last June, a move it had resisted and which revealed wide-ranging disparities between male and female talent.
A previous pay report, commissioned by the BBC, concluded there was no evidence of systemic gender discrimination, but female staff said it did not "give a true picture of pay inequality" at the corporation.
Former BBC Scotland health correspondent Eleanor Bradford has claimed she was paid "around £10,000" less than some of her male colleagues in similar roles, prompting her to leave the BBC after almost 15 years.
We will accelerate progress towards equal representation of men and women at all levels on air, and also towards closing the gender pay gap by 2020.
"I raised the equal pay issue many times over the years, but nothing was done", she said in written evidence.
BBC Director General Tony Hall said that the report showed that the organisation had "real and important issues to tackle" and that he was determined to set things right, BBC reported.
Lawmakers will also hear from BBC Women, a group of 170 on and off-air employees who say they have "no confidence" in the review published Tuesday.
"The BBC has chosen who to compare with whom, and what factors justify any gaps in pay".
PwC has now recommended introducing a clear pay framework, narrower pay ranges, simpler contracts and allowances and improved transparency.
The report said there was a "lack of clarity and openness about the basis for pay decisions" at the broadcaster, and made a number of sweeping recommendations.
On the day when news of Gracie's resignation broke, she was co-presenting the flagship morning radio program Today with John Humphrys, a BBC veteran whose annual pay of more than 600,000 pounds was one of the most controversial disclosures.
Elsewhere, the Daily Telegraph reports that Government's former chief scientist has accused German car-makers of having "blood on their hands" after rigging diesel exhaust tests, while the Sun claims the "stretched" Royal Navy sent a "puny plastic boat" to intercept two Russian attack submarines. China editor Carrie Gracie similarly quit after filing an equal pay complaint past year.
Hall will appear before the DCMS committee Wednesday, and its chair, Damien Collins, told BBC Radio Tuesday that the pay problem was extensive.
Equality can not be dependent on somebody else 'doing the right thing.' Women are either entitled to equal pay, equal rights, and equal treatment or else we remain dependent members of society.
The BBC has already acknowledged and published its gender pay gap of 9.3 per cent, which is better than the national average, and pledged to promote more women to senior roles.
The BBC will now consult staff and unions and seek feedback on PwC's proposals before developing a final set of proposals with legal experts.
