Telangana Gazetted Officers’ Association has represented to the 10th Pay Revision Commission seeking a minimum basic pay of Rs.15,000 keeping in view the present standard of living and the consumer price index.
The TGOA leaders V.Srinivas Goud and E.Sreenivasa Rao said that the gazetted officers from level I to V, should be given a minimum pay scale of Rs.36,720-Rs.95,750 and Rs.65,400-Rs.1,19,360 respectively. The government should do away with the ceiling on house rent allowance and sanction 25 per cent HRA in the district headquarters and 20 per cent in other areas.
City Compensatory Allowance should also be fixed at five per cent of basic pay. The stagnation increments for the senior employees and officers should be increased from three to five.
