Bangalore, Mar 20 (UNI) The Karnataka government will implement the fifth pay commission's second report on payment of various allowances to its employees.

Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur, after the executive committee meeting, here today told reporters that the second report would be implemented with some modifications from April 2008.

The financial implications in implementing the report would be of Rs 150 crore a year, he said.

The first report of the pay commission for making the basic payment was implemented last year.

He said the Committee gave its approval for setting up a new full fledged building for Traffic Manegement Centre at Police Commissioner's office for better management of traffic in the city.

The building would be completed with a cost of Rs ten crore in June, he said adding that the Centre would help the officials in making intellegent decisions in management of the traffic in the city by creating a network.

The Centre was working temporarily at Ashok Nagar so far, he said.

Mr Thakur said the Committee also decided to do away with the bulk transportation of minerals with the implementation of new rules in the Mining Rules-related transportation.

Following complaints of illegal mining, the state government would implement the new rules in regulating the movement of the vehicles, which transport minerals, he said.

He said the Committee also extended the deadline for payment of penalty under Sakram scheme for regulation of unauthorised constructions in the city till June 30.
