The much awaited VIth Pay Commission report, meant for the Central Government Employees, was submitted by Justice Srikrishna to the Finance Minister P.Chidamabaram today.
The Justice Srikrishna who headed the VI Pay Commission has recommended for the implementation of the Pay Commission report with retrospective effect from 01/01/2006.
It is understood that the VIth Pay Commission has recommended higher pay scales, facilitating an increase of 40 % to 50 % of enhancement of pay and allowances than what is drawn by the Central Government Employees presently.
The VIth Pay Commission is said to have recommended a maximum of Rs 90,000/- to the Group A or Class I officers and the lowest scale of pay should not be less than Rs 6,660/- for the Croup D or Class IV employees. It also favoured the grant of 30 % City Compensatory Allowances to the Central Government Employees. The pay commission is also said to have made significant contributions and increase to the pay scales of defense employees.
The Central Government which has already submitted populous Railway and Finance Budgets, is expected to accept the Srikrishna Commission report in toto, thanks to the forthcoming General Elections to the Indian Parliament. No other pay Commission in the history of Pay Commissions to Central Government employees, enjoyed such a favourable atmosphere than the VI th Pay Commission, meant for Central Government Employees.
