No Interim Relief for Central Govt. Staff

Finally it is clear that there will not be any Interim Relief (IR) to the government employees.

The Sixth Central Pay Commission does not intend awarding an Interim hike (IR) in salaries of Central Government Employees, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram told the Rajya Sabha today (14/08/2007).

In a written reply, Chidambaram said that the commission has informed the Government that it expects to submit its final report within the stipulated date of April 4, 2008.

No interim report has therefore been contemplated.

This blog has already predicted earlier that there may not be any IR for the employees.

Supreme court Employees covered in 6 CPC

New Delhi : 2/8/07

The Centre on Thursday said salaries of Supreme Court employees will also come under the purview of the Sixth Central Pay Commission, which is set up to review the wages of government staff.

"The Union Cabinet has given its approval to amend the terms of reference of Sixth Central Pay Commission that will now cover the employees of the Supreme Court while making recommendations," Minister of Information and Broadcasting Priyaranjan Dasmunshi told reporters after the Cabinet meeting.

Constituted last year, the four-member Commission has been asked to submit its report within 18 months. Also, it has to look into the desirability and need to sanction interim relief, if any, till the time its recommendations are submitted and accepted by the government.
