Jharkhand Pay Hike : More Details.

Jharkhand government on Sunday gave a pleasant, but unexpected "Holi gift" to its employees. 

Rescinding its earlier decision to give salary benefits to around 2.5 lakh state government employees on the recommendations of Sixth Pay Commission from April 1, 2007, the state government made a fresh announcement that the wage revision will be effective from January 1, 2006. 

The Sunday decision will give benefit of enhanced salary and arrears for 16 more months to the employees. 

Secretary (cabinet) PK Jajodia said the decision to implement the salary revision was given approval by the Governor's advisory council on Sunday. 

"The advisory council decided to implement the pay commission recommendations from January 1, 2006, as it was done in the case of the central government employees. Earlier, the government had decided to give the benefits from April 1, 2007," said Jajodia. 

Sources said the state government was forced to change its decision after opposition from employees who demanded benefits at par with central government employees. 

"Approving the proposal, the advisory council decided that the arrears will be given in four installments starting from the current financial year (2008-09) and will continue till 2011-2012. The arrears will be for the period of January 1, 2006 to August 31, 2008," said Jajodia. 

It was also decided that the employees will get the benefit of revised salary from this month. The salary will have arrears from September 1, 2008. 

As soon as the news of revised salary spread, the government employees broke into instant celebration. 

"We were waiting for the revised salary benefits for the last six months when the government had made announcement in this regard. It was the best ever Holi gift I received from the state government," said KK Tiwari, an engineer.
