Jaipur: Rajasthan government on Thursday said teachers of universities and government colleges in the state would get the benefits of the 6th Pay Commission as soon as a five-member review committee submits its report.

Higher and Technical Education Minister Jitendra
Singh, while replying to BJP MLA R S Rathore, told the House
that the report of Chadha committee, reviewing the
feasibility, is expected within two months.

Singh said the state would bear a financial burden of
Rs 129 crore and the UGC would provide Rs 400 to 500 crore.
Since, there were some discrepancies in the original pay
commission related to Rajasthan, Chadha Committee was set up
to bring parity, he said.

Panchayati Raj Minister Bharat Singh said jobs were given
to all labourers under NREGA, based on the need and
recommendations of Gram Sabha. There was no irregularity in
