Hisar, Mar 26 (UNI) All India State Government Employees Co-Ordination Committee has assailed the recommendations of sixth pay panel.

Talking to mediapersons here today, the president of the committee M L Sehgal said, ''There is a questionable disparity of wages between low paid group and senior rank officers. The low paid employees would get marginal increase while the highly paid will draw the maximum benefit. The minimum and maximum hike would range from 1:12.'' Criticising the recommendations, he further said, ''The two year increase in the superannuation would add to the burdgeoning number of 15 crores unemployed youth in the country and rationalisation of posts would result into the closure of several government departments.'' Commenting on the rising inflation, he said, ''The essential commodities are going out of the reach of common and poor man. The marginal raise in their scales would further create resentment and frustration. It is just a 'lolly-pop' to them.'' ''Withdrawal of bonus payment and family pension after ten years will only affect subordinate staff. The new medical facility would also hit the lower class employees hard.'' ''The government should convene a meeting to discuss the recommendations with the representatives of employees before its implementation,'' Mr Sehgal said.
