The Himachal Pradesh cabinet,which met here on Friday,announced a slew of benefits for government employees including an additional increment for all Class IV employees,on completion of 20 years of regular service with effect from August 1,2012. The decision is expected to benefit some 23,000 employees.

The grant grant is likely to cost the state exchequer Rs. 16.56 crore per annum. The cabinet also approved a proposal to enhance the tribal allowance,for employees serving in the state’s tribal areas,from Rs 200 to Rs 300 per month from August 1,2012.
