Parity in wages with Central staff sought

Special Correspondent


Employees to hold protest meetings across the State

‘The gap has widened after Sixth Pay Commission'


GULBARGA: State Government employees will hold protest meetings throughout the State during lunch hour on Wednesday demanding parity in wages of State and Union government employees and extension of other benefits like LTC, increased house rent and other allowances.

B.S. Desai, president of the Gulbarga unit of the Karnataka State Government Employees' Association; Chandrakant Ashtaki, State committee member; and Simeon Tumkurkar, general secretary, told presspersons that despite repeated appeals to correct the anomalies in the pay scale of State Government employees, the Government was dilly-dallying on the issue.

Mr. Desai said that there was a wide gap between the wages drawn by the State and Central government employees at present. “The maximum basic pay in the State Government is Rs. 39,900 while the maximum basic pay in Union Government is Rs. 80,000,” he said. He said that Karnataka was among the very few States that had not brought about parity in wages of State and Union government employees. After the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, the gap has only widened, he said.
