CM ASSURES PAY HIKE FOLLOWING SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION REPORT
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav affirmed the commitment of his government for extending the benefits of the pay hike to state employees following the Seventh Pay Commission report, which is likely to be implemented by the Centre for its employees from April 1.
“We have to implement the Pay Commission recommendations in the state. The state government will ensure hike in salary, pension and allowances to both retired and serving state employees as soon as the report is implemented by the Centre,’’ the CM assured in Lucknow on Friday.
Ever since the Second Pay Commission report was tabled in 1960s, most states started following the Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, and announced similar hikes for state staff albeit with some modifications.
