The Mizoram Government has implemented the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations with retrospective effect from January 1, 2006, Chief Minister Lalthanhawla said here today, reports UNI. ‘’Even before we (Congress) came into power after the 2008 Assembly elections, the government employees had been expecting us to implement the Central Sixth Pay Commission recommendations. I am personally happy that I am in a position to fulfill the much-awaited wish of the government employees who have been patiently waiting for this time,’’ Mr Lalthanhawla said at a press conference as he announced the landmark decision of his Cabinet meeting held during the past two days. The Cabinet’s decision has been based on the recommendations made by the state Fitment Committee that had made necessary modifications in the context of Mizoram, the Chief Minister said. ‘’We are not in a position to implement the Sixth Pay recommendations in toto,’’ he said. Mr Thanhawla said the benefits of the Pay Commission’s recommendations will be payable to state government employees with effect from January 1, 2006 and added that it would benefit around 50,000 state government employees. While the benefits from January 1, 2006 to March 31, 2009 will be added into the GP Fund, the benefits from April 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009 will be paid along with the salary payable, preferably before the coming Christmas. ‘’The finance department has been making efforts to pay the benefits to the government employees before Christmas as to make it a gift for the occasion,’’ the Chief Minister said. The total arrears since the retrospective date have been estimated to be Rs 151 crore. The previous ministries of Lalthanhawla-led Congress in Mizoram had implemented the Third pay and the Fourth pay commission recommendations. ‘’We also approved the fifth pay recommendations in principle but we were out of power at the time of the implementation,’’ he added.
