Chandigarh: Haryana government will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on the pattern of the central government, state Finance Minister Abhimanyu said on Friday.

A committee, constituted by the state government, was studying the report of Madhavan Commission, which would also be implemented in the larger interest of the employees as it would directly benefit 60,000 to 65,000 employees, he said.

"It is the priority of the (state) government to make its employees prosperous because only a satisfied employee could realise the dream of making the system free from corruption," the minister said in a release here.

He said during the tenure of the previous governments, corruption was rampant with officials, from peon to ministers, being involved in graft.

As compared to it, the present government has taken several steps to eliminate corruption and is getting encouraging results, Abhimanyu said.
