THE STATE Cabinet on Tuesday approved the Brahmaswaroop Committee recommendations increasing pay scales of government employees.
The decision, effective from April 1, 2006, involves an additional annual expenditure of Rs 42.54 crore. It was a mixed bag of joy and disappointment for about 75,000 government staff.
Most of the beneficiaries are class three employees. Te Cabinet did not concede the employees’ demand to implement the recommendations with effect from April 1, 1996. That would have cost the exchequer an additional Rs 410.49 crore.
The government later clarified that none of the government employees would have their salaries scaled down after the implementation of the recommendations.
To make its decision clear, the Cabinet approved the recommendations of the secretary-level committee chaired by the Chief Secretary to increase pay scales for different posts. The secretary committee was constituted to examine the Brahmaswaroop Committee recommendations. However, tehsildars and naib tehsildars will get the pay scales recommended by the Brahmaswaroop Committee.
The Cabinet met at Vallabh Bhavan under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
