Employees of senior grade temples administered by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) Department on Sunday requested the government to set right the anomalies in the pay fixed for some posts based on the sixth pay commission recommendation. A resolution adopted in the general body meeting of the employees union said the pay fixed for accountants, cashiers, managers, public relations officer and superintendent was low and sought Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s intervention to set it right.

The union also wanted an increase in the existing pension amount of Rs 800 and converted it into family pension.

Consolidated pay

Besides demanding regularising the services of the employees on daily wages and consolidated pay, the union also wanted the government to fill the vacancies in various temples.
