5 Lakh govt employees to go on leave, demand higher salaries

BENGALURU: More than five lakh employees of the state government are set to go on an authorised leave on June 2, demanding higher salaries. Karnataka State Government Employee’s Association President B P Manjegowda said the disparity between the Centre’s and State’s pay scales had widened over the years.
“The Central government employees have rejected the 23.5 per cent increase recommended by the 7th Pay Commission and a committee is looking into it now. Even with that increase, the difference in salaries between a D group employee of the State and Centre would be 111.33 per cent,” Manje Gowda said. He said they were demanding the state give DA (Daily Allowance) which was equivalent to that given by the Centre.
Karnataka State Government Employees Association, Hubballi unit, has said all its employees will remain absent from work on June 2, demanding increase in salaries and benefits. Around 6,000 staff of 63 departments in Hubballi would boycott work on June 2, said its president SB Patil. He said the Centre is likely to implement the 7th pay commission recommendations but the state government is not doing so.
