Tripura to seek funds to introduce new pay scales

Tripura government would urge the 14th Finance Commission to sanction funds for introducing a new pay scale for state employees and pensioners at par with the central government during the Commission's visit to the state next month. 

State Finance Minister  Mr Chowdhury said today that the full team of the 14th Finance Commission led by its Chairman, Y V Reddy would visit the state from November 12 to November 14. 

"We had long been demanding a pay scale for the employees and pensioners of the state at par with the central pay scale. We also demanded the same to the 13th Finance Commission," Chowdhury told reporters. 

He said the 13th Finance Commission had not sanctioned Rs 10,000 crore required to implement central pay scales for state employees. 

He also raised the same demand at the meeting of the Finance Ministers with the Union Finance Minister held in Delhi on Monday. 

Chowdhury said the state government was preparing to submit a detailed memorandum to the commission about how the state was deprived by the 13th Finance Commission and why it should be given adequate funds for introducing central pay scales for state employees and pensioners.
