Tamilnadu Govt. Employees' Association not happy, will agitate statewide from 2nd July.

Not content with the 30 per cent pay hike announced by the state govt. for its employees in the wake of pay hike in the Sixth Central Pay Commission, Tamil Nadu Government Employees Association (TNGEA) has warned of agitations if the "anomalies" are not rectified.

R Muthuraman, Secretary TNGEA, told reporters here that they would launch a campaign from June 22 and subsequently agitations if the Govt. did not invite them for talks to rectify the "anomalies" in the pay scales between the Central and state government staff.

He said "consolidated pay employees", anganwadi workers, and panchayat workers were not satisfied with the provisions.

The technical staff were not provided medical allowance, conveyance and house rent allowance (HRA) on par with Central staff, he alleged, and added a state level agitation would be launched on July two.

However, he welcomed the state government's announcement on increasing the ceiling of gratuity to Rs 10 lakh from the current Rs 3.5 lakh and providing HRA to bottomline employees.

While the Centre was giving arrears from January 1, 2006, the state government was providing arrears from January 1, 2007. "The employees would be losing Rs 15,000 to Rs 80,000 on arrears alone," he claimed.

Further, minimum pension for Central government staff was Rs 3,500 while for the state government staff it was fixed at Rs 3,050 only.

During the previous revision pay was hiked by 40 per cent, while it was only 30 per cent this time, he said.
