K'taka Govt employees want 5th Pay Commission to file report soon
Bangalore, July 3 (UNI) The Karnataka State Government Employees Association today demanded that the state government instruct the Fifth Pay Commission, constituted to look into their demands, to submit its report soon.
Addressing newspersons here, Association President L Bhyrappa, who had assumed charge recently, pointed out that when the Union Government had already announced that it would be setting up the Sixth Pay Commission for its employees, ''our Commission is yet to give its final recommendations. Once the Centre constitutes the next Commission, the State Pay Commission will lose its relevance,'' he added.
Mr Bhyrappa said the Association had urged Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to formulate a clear-cut 'Transfer Policy' and the latter had responded positively.
He alleged that though the state government had accepted the Association's demands and ordered the reduction of the number of years of service required for getting minimum pension to 10 from 15 and fixation of pension based on the last month's salary, the Finance Department had not executed the order. The Association would once again petition the government on the issue, he added.
