Naidu to replicate KCR on fitment
- AP employees may get 43 per cent
Hyderabad Feb 9 (NSS): Andhra Pradesh Government has reportedly agreed to offer 43 per cent of fitment to state employees despite poor coffers. However, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has not yet decided about the cut off time for payment of arrears while implementing the recommendations of the Pay Revision Commission (PRC).
A Cabinet Sub Committee apprised Naidu about its meeting with employees association seeking a fitment on par with Telangana where the government offered 43 per cent fitment to its employees. However, Naidu is to decide on the arrears to be given either from June 8, 2014 the day on which he took oath as chief minister or from July 1, 2013.
Naidu during a meeting with secretariat staff recently expressed dissatisfaction about their functioning and asked them to focus on getting more revenues keeping financial constraints in view. Though the government was of the opinion to offer one or two percent more than 43 per cent, it is learnt that it dropped the idea because of its poor financial position.
The Cabinet sub-committee comprises Finance minister Y Ramakrishnudu, HRD Minister G Srinivasa Rao and Information Minister P Raghunath Reddy. (NSS)
