West Bengal pay panel seeks extension of one more year

According to sources in Nabanna, Sarkar wrote to the Chief Minister and the state Finance Department seeking an extension of the eight-member Commission as hearing of many of the applications is yet to be completed.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced the setting up of the Pay Commission on November 27 last year. Initially, the Commission was granted six months to file its report. Later, it was extended by another six months.

The Commission received around 1,100 applications including those from various government employees’ associations and intends to hear all the applicants before preparing the final report. Based on the report, the state government will decide on restructuring of the salary of its employees.

Besides, the Commission also has to examine policies including existing promotion policies, related aspects, benefits and allowances to the employees.

While the Commission report was pending, the Mamata Banerjee government announced an interim relief of 10 per cent on band pay to the state government employees. 

The Chief Minister made the announcement soon after coming to power for the second term. The interim relief came into effect from July this year, for which the state government has allocated Rs 3,000 crore.

State government employees are eagerly waiting for the revision in their pay structure as there is a difference in the dearness allowance paid to them and the Central government employees.
