Chhattisgarh Govt. announced pay hike.

Chhattisgarh has decided to implement the recommendations of the sixth pay commission with effect from January 2006.

Briefing the media-persons after the cabinet meeting on Monday, the chief minister said that the state government will extend the benefits of the pay commission to nearly 2 lakh state government employees from January 1, 2006.

Regarding the modalities for payment, the chief minister said that the arrears for the period from January 2006 to August 2008 would be paid in the next three years and the cash payment of the sixth pay commission scale would be made from September 2008 to the employees.

The chief minister said that the decision will also help the pensioners in the state. “The sixth pay commission implementation is likely to incur additional burden of around 35 percent on the state exchequer”, said the CM. He denied that the state government has taken the decision owing to forthcoming Lok Sabha election. “Sooner or later the decision has to be taken by the state government”, Singh affirmed.

While the arrears for the period from January, 2006 to August, 2008, would be paid in three instalments of 30 per cent, 30 per cent and 40 per cent in three years, the employees would be receiving arrears due from September, 2008 to February, 2009, in cash during the year 2009-10, the Chief Minister said, adding that the pensioners would however get their arrears in two years.

Referring to the issues of allowances, Dr Singh said a final decision would be taken after a committee constituted under the chairmanship of the state chief secretary submitted its report in the matter.

After the implementation of the pay commission it is believed that there will be an average growth of 35 percent in the salaries of the government employees.
