The Haryana government has decided to extend the benefit of the 7th Pay Commission to non-teaching staff of privately managed government-aided colleges in the State.
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has approved the proposal to give the non-teaching staff revised pay as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, effective from January 1, 2016, said Finance Minister Abhimanyu Singh.
This decision of the government is likely to benefit 1,184 employees of privately managed government-aided colleges in the northern Indian State.
Meanwhile, it will also cause an additional financial burden of Rs 45 crore on the state ex-chequer, Singh added.
At national level, the Central government employees feel cheated with the changes the Narendra Modi-government has brought in allowances under the 7th pay commission.
On the other hand, reports are there that the government is considering to chalk out an alternative for increasing salaries and allowances of the employees and pensioners in future instead of forming another pay commission or the 8th Pay Commission.
