Govt employees to get salary hike in Telangana

Hyderabad: With Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s 11th pay commission-which he is going to constitute-the salaries of TS govt employees is likely to increase in the months running up to 2019 elections.

According to DC, a total of 3.5 lakh employees and 2 lakh pensioners would benefit from the new pay commission recommendations. The elections are due in April 2019, the govt staffers had got a pay raise when the state was formed on June 2, 2014.

A CMO official said, “The CM has asked the finance department to prepare the file to constitute 11th Pay Revision Commission and send it to him for approval. The finance department is already on the job. The PRC will be constituted in a month.”

This was on the basis of the recommendations of the 10th Pay Revision Commission, set up in 2013 by Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, the last Chief Minister of undivided AP. The government is working towards constituting the PRC in a month or two to enable the commission to make recommendations by February 2018 so that the new pay scales could be implemented from April 1, 2018.

A 25% (in basic pay) hike could not be implemented in 2013 as there were state bifurcation issues pending. The 25% raise was recommended by the PRC.

Mr Chandrasekhar Rao announced a 43 percent fitment( raise in basic pay) after the state was formed in 2014. This was excess than PRC recommendations, as a token of gratitude for the role played by employees during the statehood agitation.

The next revision is due in 2019, as the previous practice was done in 2014.
