14th Finance Commission allocated a budget of 31308.76 crore for Tripura: Central pay Scale for State Govt employees is not possible: Finance Minister
AGARTALA, March 4 (TIWN): Manik Sarkar led Tripura Govt seems hell bent on keeping Govt employees the poorest in country by denying the much needed Central Pay Scale. The 14th Finance Commission has allotted a total budget of 31308.76 crore for Tripura. According to the estimated budget, Tripura will get 644 per 1lakh. However, Finance Minister, Bhanulal Saha told in the budget session that, though the budget seems to be broader in sense, but it creates some effect on the State.Bhanulal Saha on Tuesday presented the budget of the 14th Finance Commission allocations. While delivering the speech, Minister told that according to the budget, for the salaries of the Central Govt employees , there is a need of 1800 crore rupees. Other than that for other purposes, additional amount of 2500 crore will be needed. Minister also clarified that it is not possible to grant central pay scale to the employees. So, rather than stereotype story of Central Govt deprivation, its the foolishness of State Govt for not following the earlier Finance Commission recommendations of implementing Central Pay Scale for the state govt employees.
