On 13.07.2015, the 10th Pay Commission appointed by Kerala State Government has submitted its report to the Government doubling the minimum in each pay scale w.e.f. 01.07.2014 and raising retirement age from 56 to 58 years.
But, the net increase will be Rs 2000 – Rs 12000.
The recommended Minimum pay for a Group D is Rs 17000 and the maximum pay will be Rs. 1, 20, 000.Fitment benefit will be 12 percent to serving staff and 18 percent to pensioners.
Pay revision and pension revision was taking place in Kerala once in 5 year till now, but now it is recommended only after 10 years, which has naturally met with strong opposition from staff.
