Pay Commission for Kerala employees – Kerala sets up 10th pay revision panel
The State government has notified terms of reference for the 10th pay revision commission headed by Justice (Retd) C.N. Ramachandran Nair.
The Commission will study and make recommendations on revising pay and allowances and other benefits of employees, including teaching and non-teaching staff of aided educational institutions and local bodies.
This comes against the background of a tightening fiscal position warranting austerity measures in the administration. But both Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Finance Minister K.M. Mani have denied that there is a severe financial crunch.
The government will introduce measures to cut down expenditure and beef up revenue realisation. There are curbs on creation of new posts and restrictions on deputation of officers to field departments.
