The PM did not mention anything regarding the proposed raise in retirement age to 62 years for the Central Govt. staff.


The state level function to mark the country's 63rd year of independence was organised at Fatehpur in Kangra district where Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal unfurled the National Flag and took salute from marching contingents of police, home gurads, NCC and school children.

Speaking on the occasion, Dhumal made a slew of announcements including implementation of 5th pay commission recommendations for regular employees of the state government with effect from Sept 1, 2009 and release of six per cent dearness allowance (DA) from January 1, 2009, to be paid in cash.

The UGC pay scales to all eligible college and university teachers will be applicable from Sept 1, 2009, he added.
