7th Pay commission implementation only after reviewing

Press Trust of India  |  Patna 

government today said it would take a decision on implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations for over 3 lakh state employees only after reviewing its financial condition.

This was stated by state Finance Minister Abdul Bari Siddiqui in reply to a short notice question of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) Lallan Paswan during

Paswan said that while the Centre had started giving benefits of 7th Pay Commission to its employees with effect from January 1, 2016 the same had not been extended to government staff.

The Finance minister was non-committal about time the state

government would take to decide new scale of salary to its employees.

Siddiqui said that the Centre brought 7th pay commission without consulting states.

"We will take stock of state's financial condition to take a decision on providing 7th pay commission benefits to state government employees," the minister said.

On repeated questions of the RLSP and leader of Opposition Prem Kumar who intervened, Siddique said that he was not saying that the state would not give benefits of new pay scale to its employees but a decision would be taken only after review of financial condition.
