Over two lakh employees in Tamil Nadu will get a hike in their salaries with the State government accepting the recommendations of the one-man Commission to set right “anomalies” arising out of the implementation of the sixth pay commission recommendations.

The decision to accept the recommendations of the Rajiv Ranjan Commission would cost the exchequer Rs. 223 crore per annum, an official press release said.

The one-man commission under Industries Secretary Rajiv Ranjan was set up to look into complaints of anomalies in the revised pay structure of State government officials in line with the Sixth Central Pay Commission.
