Pay anomalies will be rectified, says Isaac
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Finance Minister T.M. Thomas Isaac has said that the government will favourably consider all complaints regarding fixation of pay scales by the Ninth Pay Commission.
Responding to a calling attention motion from T.N. Prathapan (Congress) in the Assembly on Tuesday, the Finance Minister said the complaints were the result of the commission recommending higher pay scales for certain sections as compared to their counterparts. The government was in receipt of several memorandums in this regard. The government would consider all such complaints sympathetically, he said.
Dr. Isaac said the Cabinet had constituted a seven-member sub-committee to look into all such complaints and to study the commission report. The Finance Department was also studying the commission recommendations. The approach of the government was focused on addressing the complaints and ensuring that the order implementing the commission recommendations was issued this month itself, he said.
