Bonanza likely for state govt employees

The Sixth Pay Commission headed by former IAS officer M R Sreenivasa Murthy is expected to recommend a 25% to 30% hike in salary of government employees.

The panel will submit its report to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday.

The four-member commission, which was constituted in June, is also expected to recommend a five-day work schedule for the employees.

It will also determine the new Dearness Allowances (DA) formula and propose quantum of various other allowances for the employees.

The chief minister is likely to incorporate the commissions recommendations in the state budget scheduled to be presented on February 16.

The employees are expecting the government to give them a good pay hike in view of the upcoming Assembly elections.

The government employees association has been seeking pay parity with their counterparts in the central government.
