The Bihar Pay Commission headed by former state Chief Secretary G S Kang today submitted its report to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. "We have submitted our report to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today," Kang told PTI. He said the Commission has made its recommendations for effecting a hike for state government employees and pensioners on the lines of the Centre's recommendations. The state cabinet had on December 21, 2016 set up a three-member pay commission headed by Kang to decide the hike in salaries and allowances of government employees and pensioners. The recommendations, if accepted by the state government, will impact around 4.5 lakh state government employees and 3.5 lakh pensioners. The Commission was supposed to submit its report within three months, which was later extended by another two months, Kang said adding, it took time because more than 350 representations were made before the Commission by various groups, associations and individuals.
