Pay Commission bonanza for govt employees

The Sixth Pay Commission on Monday recommended a hefty increase in salaries of over four million central government employees, a move that would cost the exchequer Rs 12,561 crore in 2008-09.

New Delhi: The Sixth Pay Commission on Monday recommended a hefty increase in salaries of over four million central government employees, a move that would cost the exchequer Rs 12,561 crore in 2008-09.

The Commission, headed by Justice B N Srikrishna, submitted its report to Finance Minister P Chidambaram recommending implementation of the revised pay from January 1, 2006, which would impose an arrear payout burden of Rs 18,060 crore on the government.

The revised pays fixed the salary of Cabinet Secretary at Rs 90,000 a month and Secretary at Rs 80,000 per month, while making Rs 6,660 as the minimum entry level salary as against Rs 4860.

The implementations of the 6th Pay Commission will come into effect from January 1, 2006.

Recommending a substantial increase in allowances and other benefits, the Commission also suggested a 40 per cent increase in pension and family pension.

According to the report, the total number of grades will be reduced to 20 from the existing 35, the date of annual increment in all cases will be July 1 and the existing rate of House Rent Allowance (HRA) will be retained for A1 cities.

For A, B1 and B2 cities, the allowance will be 20 per cent higher, while the same for C and unclassified cities will be given the allowance at the
higher rate of 10 per cent.

The Pay Commission has also suggested that City Compensatory Allowance (CCA) be subsumed in transport allowance and the rate be increased fourfold, while it suggest that the base year for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for computation of Dearness Allowance (DA) be revised as frequently as feasible.

Defence Forces will be given running pay bands and grade pay on par with those recommended for civilians. The Director General (Armed Force Medical Services) has been placed in the apex grade of Rs 80,000 (fixed).

In Defence Forces, only two trade group to be retained for personnel below Officer Ranks with the earlier trade groups Y and Z being merged. The personnel in trade group X will have an additional X group pay of Rs 1,400 per month.

It also suggested that existing rate of most of the allowances be doubled, both in case of defence forces and civilian employees and replacement of risk allowance by risk insurance.

To remove stagnation, running pay bands for all posts to the Government presently existing in scales below that of Rs 26,000 (fixed) have been introduced.

The reimbursement of education allowance will be raised from the existing level of Rs 50 to Rs 1000 per child per month, subject to the maximum of two children. The hostel subsidy will be raised from the existing Rs 300 per month to Rs 3,000 per month.

Pension will be paid at 50 per cent of the average emoluments/last pay drawn (which ever is more beneficial) without linking it to 33 years of qualifying services for grant of full pension.

The report further says that in case of government employees dying in harness, family pension will be paid at enhanced rates for a period of 10 years.

A new medical insurance scheme has been recommended for Government employees, and will be optional for existing Central Government employees and pensioners. New Government employees and new pensioners will be compulsorily covered by the scheme.

The fitment formula recommended for serving employees will be extended in case of existing pensioners family pensioners.

The rates of Constant Attendent Allowance for disabled pensioners will be increased by five times to Rs 3,000 per month.

The Revised Pay Scale

  • PB-1: Minimum pay band to be Rs 6660 (Rs 4,860 as pay in the pay band plus Rs 1800 as grade pay)
  • PB-2: Minimum pay band to be Rs 12,000 (Rs 8,700 as pay in the pay band plus Rs 4,200 as grade pay)
  • PB-3: Minimum pay band to be Rs 21,000 (Rs 15,600 as pay in the pay band plus Rs 5,400 as grade pay)
  • PB-4: Minimum pay band to be Rs 48,200 (Rs 39,200 as pay in the pay band plus Rs 9,000 as grade pay)

I reside at Durgapur,(previously it was B-1 city) Burdwan, West Bangal. Previously I got 15% HRA now what percentage should I get presently.

I am ISRO employee. The pay difference between PB3 to PB4 is too high when compare to PB2 to PB3. Proportionate jump may increase to PB2 to PB3 also.

Dear Sir,

In the interest of the common man who is overburdened by the recent inflation and medical costs besides, cost of living, the Maharashtra State Govt. should take up the matter of accepting and executing the recommendations of the 6th CPC on a war footing.

I work for a State Govt. PSU and will soon be retiring with just the lumpsum amount with no pension benefits. Sanctioning the Gratuity Amount to Rs.10 lakhs would give me a reason to smile as I have put in more than 40 years of a hard struggle.

I sincerely request the Maharashtra State Govt. to look into the needs of a common man and bring cheer to him in his old age.


Central Govt. Employee ko jo pay scale milta hai, state govt. me same post wale ko bhi wahi pay scale mile aisa koi rule hai kya?

I doubt if the state governments are serious about the implementing the new UGC recommended pay-scales unless it's forced upon them by the Centre by conceding to share the financial burden that's likely to affect the states. Since the Centre has indicated that it would certainly see that the pay scales are paid to the college and university teachers, the state governments might think it prudent to do so before the general elections which are likely to be held in April.Therefore, it is unlikely that any state govt would harness all its financial resources to see that the intellectuals are satisfied with their economic well being.

I have been appointed on contract basis for a central govt job-dept of IT and communications.

According to 6th pay, Will the salary of the contractual employees be increased or not?

The state governments are still dilly-dallying to implement the recommendations of the sixth pay commission and the UGC stipulations for the fear of depletion of their resources without realising the fact that the Centre has already pledged to support the state governments. It merely shows the cussedness of some of the state governments to harp on the same argument of the fiscal burden if they go by the sixth pay panel recommendations. It should be mandatory for all state governments to implement the recommendations in view of the spiraling inflation. When will it dawn upon them that the economic well- being of their people is more important than other considerations.

Sir not hike pay for sub ordinate workers or total fanifit for officer rank tks

I have been a Maharashtra Government employee slogging for the last 40 years and I am due to retire on 31.12.2008 on a lumpsum scheme taking with me only the gratuity amount of Rs 3.5 lakh. Don't you think that after a hard struggle of 40 years and escalating costs of living, we deserve a better enhanced gratuity amount of Rs10 lakh?

This is bullshit, I am drawing a gross salary of 26,000 pm. if the govt claims of hiking pay by 4 times be true, I would be drawing 1,04,000/ pm. but post 6th pay commission I will get about 36,000/ pm,. So one can see what actually is the truth?
