"The state Cabinet has accepted the recommendations and decided to extend the benefits of the Sixth Pay Commission to the State government employees," government Spokesperson Jaynarayan Vyas said in a press briefing.
He added that implementation of pay commission would mean revision in the pay structure of 4.5 lakh State government employees, which would cause financial burden of Rs 2,900 crore per annum on the state.
Moreover, the government would pay arrears from January 2006 to March 2009 in five yearly instalments, he added.
"The state would pay five instalments of 20 percent each in the five year lock in period directly in the provident fund (PF) account of the employees," Vyas said, adding that the employees would be able to withdraw that amount only after five year lock in period.
According to Minister of State for Finance Saurabh Patel, the state would have to pay Rs 6,883.87 crore in arreares in five years.
