The Himachal Pradesh government has approved the revised pay scale for about 2 lakh employees based on the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission on Monday. The cabinet made the decision during a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur.
The move will put an additional annual burden of Rs 4,000 crore on the state budget.
According to the revised pay scale, employees will receive their January 2022 salary in February 2022. As part of the arrears, the state government has provided an interim relief of about Rs 5,000 crore.
