New Year bonanza for Haryana Govt employees

In a New Year bonanza to about 3.5 lakh state government employees, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today announced implementation of recommendations for higher pay, becoming the first state to put in effect the Sixth Pay Commission's proposals.

Hooda said the cabinet, which met here today under his chairmanship, approved the recommendations of the Pay Revision Commission constituted under the Chairmanship of the Chief Secretary to work out modalities for implementation of proposals of the sixth Pay Commission.

The pay revision would be made effective from 1st January, 2006.

The Chief Minister said that with the revision of the pay scales of the employees, net additional burden in the year 2008-09 and 2009-10 would be Rs. 6431.26 crore.

Addressing a press conference here after the cabinet meet, he said Haryana is the first state in the country to have implemented the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission from January 1, 2006 and to pay arrear in cash to its employees.

He said the employees would be given revised pay from January, 2009, and 40 per cent of the arrears of pay would be paid in cash in the year 2008-09.

"The revision in allowances would be made effective prospectively, from January, 2009. The revision of pay scale and allowances had given substantial increase in salary to all categories of employees," he said.

Hooda said arrears of pay for 2006-2008 on account of pay revision would be about Rs. 3350 crore. Of this, about Rs. 2750 crore would be due to pay revision of group C and D employees. 

In addition, about Rs 850 crore would be required for payment of revised pensions for this period. In 2008-09, the additional burden for current revised pay, pension and allowances and for 40 per cent of arrears of pay and pension would be about Rs 1990 crore. In 2009-10, the burden for current revised pay, pension and allowances and for 60 per cent of arrears of pay and pension would be about Rs 4450 crore.

The Chief Minister said while the cabinet approved the specific recommendations of the Pay Revision Commission for revision of pay and allowances, the committee's general recommendations for various structural and administrative improvements would be subsequently examined for necessary action.

He said that on the pattern of the central government, a master list of pay bands and grade pays had been approved by the cabinet as replacement of existing pay scales. Now, the master list provided for a total of 5 pay bands and 32 grade pays.

Among the new pay scales which will be applicable now, the Haryana Civil Service (HCS) Executive Services pay scales have been revised from basic of 8000-13,500 (entry level scale) to 15,600-39,100 (also entry level).

The entry level scale of Deputy Superintendent of Haryana Police Services have been revised from 8,000-13,500 to 9,300-34,800.

Hooda said the cabinet felt that the central government's decision to discontinue further recruitment at class IV level and to absorb all existing class IV employees in class III level was not feasible in Haryana as the administrative structure in various departments functionally required class IV deployments.
