Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir government on Friday
said that it has decided to pay 50 per cent of arrear of Sixth
Pay Commission to the state employees in phased manner.
"Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to
pay 50 per cent of the arrears out of its own resource in a
phased manner, the remaining 50 per cent arrears would be met
out of the Central assistance sought for this purpose,"
Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather said.
Jammu and Kashmir is among few states of the country
which has implemented Sixth Pay Commission recommendation for
its employees, he said.
The state government has also decided to regularise
services for all contractual, adhoc employees and orders in
this regard are expected within a month, rather said and
informed the state employees that 10 per cent dearness
allowance would be given from due date shortly.
He also asked various employees unions to play their role
in eradicating the menaces of corruption and red-tapism.
"I am of the view to encourage trade unionism as it keeps
checks and balances on the working of government and helps to
effect transparency in administration and judicious use of
funds," he added.
