Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 16, 2009

Guwahati 15 Oct 2009(IANS): The sixth Assam Pay Commission is understood to have Thursday recommended central pay scale for the state’s nearly 500,000 employees, officials said.
The Pay Commission report was submitted to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi at a simple function here.

“I really don’t know the contents and the recommendations of the report, but I strongly feel the commission might have considered central pay scale for our employees,” the chief minister told journalists.

According to government sources, the commission had recommended central pay scale to the state employees with retrospective effect from April 1, 2009.

“We are happy that the Pay Commission report was submitted in about 16 months. We are hopeful and optimistic that the recommendations would fulfil the aspirations of the state employees,” Basab Kalita, secretary of the All Assam Employees Union, told IANS.

The state employees were demanding central pay scale and had in the past resorted to agitations.

“We had already announced that our government would give central pay scale to our employees and very soon we are going to implement the Pay Commission’s recommendations,” the chief minister said.
