Recently in November 2008 Uttar Pradesh government has approved to implement the recommendations of 6th pay commission. This scheme will benefit nearly more then 18 lakh state employees and will be applicable from first of December.
The state will have to shell out more then 4000 crore to meet the requirement of pay scale hike including Dearness allowance and The pay scale will come in force with retrospective effect from January 1, 2006. The arrears of salary, DA and pension will be paid in three instalments in the next three years. The total burden on account of the arrears is over Rs 13,000 crore.
Part of the arrear will be paid in cash during the current fiscal 2008-09. The remaining amount will be deposited in the provident fund account of the employees in two parts in 2009-10 and 2010-11. House rent allowance will also be paid on the basis of 6th pay commission recommendation.
