Rajasthan appoints panel on 7th Pay Commission

The Rajasthan government has appointed a three-member committee, headed by former Chief Secretary D.C. Samant, to study and implement the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission for employees in the State.The committee, which will have two retired Rajasthan Accounts Service officers as its members, has been asked to make an estimate of financial burden on the exchequer and recommend new pay scales for the government employees. It will submit its report to the State government in three months.
According to official sources, another mandate of the committee is to make suggestions for revising and fixing various allowances payable with different salary slabs. Besides Mr. Samant, the panel's members are D.K. Mittal and M.P. Dixit.

The State government had announced establishment of the committee in the last year's Budget. Since the process for giving pay hike to the government employees has begun, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje may announce implementation of the Pay Commission’s recommendations in her upcoming Budget speech during the ongoing State Assembly session.
There are over seven lakh government employees in the State, including those in the Panchayati Raj and local self-government institutions and the urban local bodies. Besides, the number of pensioners exceeds three lakh.
The financial burden on the exchequer will be of the order of ₹10,000 crore if all recommendations are enforced.
