ROPA : 2009,WB Govt accepts Fifth Pay Commission recommendations

With Lok Sabha elections round the corner, the West Bengal Government announced the implementation of the Fifth Pay Commission with certain improvements, which will be effective from April 1 this year.
"The state government has accepted, by and large, the recommendations of the Fifth Pay Commission, constituted by it, with certain improvements," Finance minister Asim Dasgupta said.
Beneficiaries will include ten lakh government employees, teachers and other staff, while the government has to incur an additional expenditure of about Rs 5,700 crore annually, he said.
Dasgupta said that replacing the existing pay scales, a revised pay structure with five Pay Bands and distinct Grade Pay for each of the unrevised pay scales have been introduced.
Giving an example, Dasgupta said a Group-D employee now drawing a basic pay of Rs 2,600 plus dearness pay of Rs 1,300 would get Rs 6,600 as basic pay in the revised pay structure.
The highest basic scale in Pay Band-5 will be from Rs 37,400 to Rs 60,000, he said.
