No Good News For Babus

The empowered committee examining the 6th pay commission's proposals is unlikely to "rewrite" the original report in any big way. The committee was formed on an assurance from PM Manmohan Singh who said that the concerns of government employees would be accounted for before implementing the salary proposals.

The committee, headed by cabinet secretary K M Chandrasekhar, has progressed well in its work and is expected to submit its much awaited report by July first week of 2008. The pay panel's recommendations, effective from January 2006, are likely to be accepted and implemented "very soon" after that.

The committee will definitely not go into the nitty-gritty of the entire report but may recommend very minor changes here and there

Inflation has been on a continuous uptrend. The fact is that prices of not just petrol, diesel and LPG, but of essential commodities, foodgrain and vegetables have been rising. The pay hike recommend is nothing in comparison to inflation. So Babus should prepare themselves to live with less money!

Sources said the government is being extra cautious in taking a final decision on the pay report proposals and this is believed to be the cause for the delay.
