Gujarat Government has added that revision of pay scale (salaries) will increase financial burden as this would be most inappropriate in debt condition as well as global economic slowdown.

Gujarat Government has said that central’s pay panel recommendations will encourage “contract employment” which will not provide government salary structures.

Gujarat’s chief minister Shri Narendra Modi who is PM candidate by BJP said the financial burden of the 7th Pay Commission would be substantial. State Government can’t afford the new pay panel i.e. seventh pay commission in the state.

It is also known that Gujarat Government didn’t provide sixth pay commission even to new employees. Gujarat Government which is led by Shri Narendra Modi has fix pay policy by not providing full salary. New employees have to work in fix pay period (probation) such as three years or five years. Already court case is pending in the Supreme Court of India against Gujarat Government filed by Yogkshem Foundation on behalf of the employees.

Gujarat Government has also added that new pay panel will encourage and force state governments to take route of “contract appointments” which will create two sets of employees.

This will create panic among state government employees who are eagerly waiting for the seventh pay commission.

Update: Chief minister of Gujarat has accepted the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission and implement it in the state from August 1. This decision would benefit to more than 4.12 lakh pensioners and 4.65 lakh government employees of Gujarat.

Let’s share this post and news on the popular social media websites such as Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter to inform the government employees across the nation.

    How we can say “Gujarat is the most prosperous state of our country”. Salary of State Government Employees should not be equal to Central Government Employees and should be controlled by the respective state government.

    How can you expect from gujarat goverment ? They have paid 2500 Fixed pay to state employess for 5 years. Even high court has given verdict in favor of employees but they are not implementing it. They have money to spend on marketing stunt like sadbhavna but no fund for employee and citizen. All modi support wait and watch….

    Central Pay Commission may not considered similar as State Govt. Earlier only few state given 5th or 6th pay as per Central to State employees….. lets hope for better.

      State govts are habitual of crying in advance & they keep crying till implemented. When a state like Gujrat, whose prosperity data were so widely publicised & even claims were made that in many sectors it has done progress even better than other states with averages being above that the entire nation. Now , when a genuine stake is being asked for by the employees why this cry then. Pay commissions don’t suggest anything unjustified but picks up the data based on prices & other relevant factors so that the people (employees) who are the force behind implementing the govt policies & decisions are put on a balanced scale , so far as their own needs are concerned. pl. don’t make it a political issue , as lakhs of families would look forward to a justified action.

      Giving Rs. 2500 per month for 5 years i.e 83 rupees a day, can only sympathize for these poor bonded labour (cant call them Gujarat Govt employees) at least now one can guess the secret behind the prosperity of Gujarat.
