In a bonanza for state government employees and pensioners, the Rajasthan Cabinet on Thursday decided to implement the report of the Sixth Pay Commission from this month.

The decision would benefit over seven lakh government employees and nearly three lakh pensioners, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Rathore told reporters here.

The report would be implemented with retrospective effect and would entail an additional burden of Rs 4920 crore annually on the state exchequer, he said after the Cabinet meeting.

Rajasthan is the first state to implement the report of the pay panel within two weeks of its receipt, Rathore said.
