The pay revision committee, constituted to recommend revising the pay and allowances of state government employees and teachers in aided educational institutions, in its report suggested for increasing the retirement age of employees for 56 to 58.
The committee, headed by retired high court judge C N Ramachandran Nair, submitted the report to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Monday.
The committee recommended for new pay scales for government employees and teachers, with the lowest scale increased from Rs 8,500-13,210 to Rs 17,000 -35,700 and the highest scale from Rs 48,640-59,840 to Rs 97,000- 1,20,000. The range of quantum of increase in monthly pay is from Rs 2,000 to Rs 12,000.
The pay revision panel, formed in 2013, has recommended that the revised pay should be implemented with retrospective effect from July, 2014. The recommendations, if implemented, would incur an additional burden of Rs 5277 crore in a year for the state exchequer.
