Karnataka employees seek 6th pay commission salary

Nearly 15,000 government employees in Dakshina Kannada district and their counterparts across the state will be absent from their respective offices from 1.30 pm to 2.30 pm on Wednesday. They would instead be holding meetings in front of the offices of the deputy commissioners and tahshildars at the respective district and taluk headquarters with an 11-point charter of demands for the government to consider on the eve of state budget.
The state-wide meetings would not have a bearing for the general public. Also there would be no stoppage of services delivery to the people as the government employees have chosen their designated lunch hour time to hold the meetings. While the state government has already given them positive feelers about meeting some of their demands, the employees want to make sure that their voice is heard, especially since the state budget is to be presented later this month.
H Sanjeeva, president of district unit of Karnataka State  Govt. Employees Association told reporters on Monday that the main demand raised by the parent body of the association with the government is to ensure that the state government employees receive their salaries on par with central government employees. The central government employees are already drawing salaries as recommended by the sixth pay commission, Sanjeeva noted.

The state government employees, he said, are currently getting salaries as mentioned in the fifth pay commission that is being paid to them from April 1, 2006. The neighboring states of TN, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh have implemented and even Kerala from April 1 would implement the 6th pay commission recommendations for their employees, he said, adding Karnataka would be last state to do so, as and when the government decides to do so for its employees.

The other major discrimination, he said is with regard to house rent allowance (HRA). While central government employees receive 20 per cent of their basic as HRA, state government employees get 10 per cent. Even this was raised by one per cent from November last, he said, adding that the employees are not getting the benefits of a B2 category city bestowed on Mangalore as per 2000 census, which entitles them to higher HRA and other emoluments.
