AIZAWL, April 1 - Mizoram Government is working to implement the Seventh Central Pay Commission�s recommendations from the next fiscal 2018-19, Mizoram Finance Minister Lalsawta informed the State Assembly recently.
Replying to queries from members, Lalsawta said the government has, on November 13 last year, formed a four member Pay Implementation Committee headed by former Finance Minister and current vice chairman of State Planning Board, H Liansailova, to study the feasibility of implementation of the pay commission�s recommendations in the State.
The Pay Committee is yet to submit its report and recommendations to the government.
The Minister said that the Pay Committee was instructed to submit its report within six months of its formation and the State Cabinet will take a final decision when the committee submits its report.
He said that the State Government will have to incur additional expenditure of Rs 46.93 crore monthly and Rs 563.24 crore annually when the Central Pay Commission�s recommendations are implemented.
Employees under the Federation of Mizoram Government Employees and Workers had gone on a three-day mass casual leave agitation in December last year demanding immediate implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission�s recommendations.
