Kerala Pay Panel to cut holidays, propose election duty for retirees

The second report of the 10th Pay Commission, which is in its final stage, could stir up a hornet’s nest as it contained a recommendation to increase the number of working days and restrict government employees’ organisational activities to holidays.
“When government employees engage in organisational activities on working days, it is the public who bear the brunt. This trend has to be controlled. The report will have a recommendation to the state government to take action against those who refuse to follow the regulations,” said Justice Ramachandran Nair, Chairman of the commission. The panel further recommended that teachers should not be used for election duty. “The government should use the huge force of retired government employees who are experienced in such procedures,” it said.

Regarding the School Kalolsavam, the Commission recommended that the festival should be conducted during vacations, without interrupting the academic session.
The Commission has also recommended a hike in water charges so that the  Kerala Water Authority (KWA) could mobilise an additional income. It further recommended that the water distribution should be the monopoly of the state government.
In its first report, the 10th Pay Commission had recommended a revised pay scale for government staff.
“The report is still in its draft form and there may be changes after discussion with other members in the Commission,” said Justice Ramachandran Nair.

An excellent idea and a step in the right direction. Will our spineless politicians heed to this? I have my own doubts. We need to reduce the number of holidays and unwanted interference of union leaders in the day to day affairs of the organization in which these leaders are working. This system should be all over in Indian states.
