According to the recommendations of the 6th Punjab Pay Commission, all employees should get a two-times increment in salaries as compared to the previous panel. The minimum pay will also be increased from Rs 6,950 to Rs 18,000. The revised pay scales will come into retrospective effect from Jan 1, 2016. The payment of arrears itself will cost the state government Rs 35,000 crore.

All kinds of special pay and additions to basic pay will be done away with. The medical allowance for staff and pensioners will be fixed at Rs 1,000 a month. The max limit of death-cum-retirement gratuity will go up to Rs 20 lakh from 10 lakh and the dearness allowance will continue to follow the Central government’s pattern.

On an average, there is expected to be an increment of 20 per cent in the salaries and pensions of staff. Salaries will go up 2.59 times post merging of dearness allowance (DA) over the recommendations of the 5th Pay Commission.

An effort has been made to align basic pay structures with the Central government structure. While the new scales will be implemented on July 1, the arrears will be paid in a staggered manner.

At a time when the Punjab government is grappling with a distressed economy, amidst the second wave of the pandemic, the state finance department will examine the report submitted by the Commission before forwarding it to the Cabinet for approval.
