Gujarat to disburse pay arrears in cash

The State government has decided to pay in cash the fifth installment of arrears of increased salary allowance of sixth pay commission to its employees. The pro-employee announcement came just a week after the state government announced 8% increase in dearness allowance (DA) for the employees.
Giving details of the decision the state government Spokespersons Finance Minister Nitin Patel and Energy Minister Saurabh Patel said the state government had earlier announced to give benefit of sixth pay commission to its employees from January 01, 2006. Accordingly it was decided to pay arrears of salary and DA in five even installments, payable directly to the employees' General Provident Fund every year. 

However, the government had then paid the second installment in cash in the year 2010-11 on the occasion of the State's golden jubilee celebration. The third and forth installments were also paid in cash. Now the fifth and last installment, payable in 2013-14, will also be paid in cash to the employees. 

About 8.20 lakh Karmayogis, including those in service and retired pensioners, will be benefited from this decision, said the Ministers. 

The state government will pay a sum of around Rs. 1082.25 crore in cash to the employees as a part of this decision.
