Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 19, 2009

GANGTOK 18th Sept(PTI): In a festive bonanza to more than 36,000 government employees of the state, Sikkim has approved the recommendations of the 4th pay commission from January 1, 2006, but the enhanced allowances will be applicable from April 1 this year.

Pawan Kumar Chamling-led government took the decision to implement the pay commission award at the state cabinet meeting held on Thursday evening at chief minister’s official residence in Mintokgang, an official release said on Friday.

While the time frame for the payment of arrears to the employees was not immediately known, the government has decided to release an interim amount of Rs 25,000 to each employee ahead of Dusshera festival later this month, it said.

The release also did not specify the total financial burden on the state exchequer following the implementation of the report.

Sikkim had in its annual budget provisioned a sum of Rs 824 crore for payment of 40% arrears to the government employees.
