Published on October 24th, 2013

Debraj Deb Agartala : A delegation of the 14th Finance Commission is scheduled to visit Tripura from November 12. The team headed by YV Reddy, Chairman of the 14th Finance Commission, would be visiting the state till November 14, Tripura Finance Minister Badal Choudhury said here today.

Speaking to reporters at the civil secretariat here this evening, the minister said that the Department has already progressed largely in preparing the report of state’s committed expenditures to the Commission’s delegation. Separate meetings are scheduled with officials of the Finance Department and members of the state cabinet headed by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.

We are contemplating to raise demands of equal salary, pension and Dearness Allowance (DA) for central and state government employees, Badal said. He added that the initial report on state’s liabilities and committee expenditures would be sent to Delhi shortly.

The 7th Pay Commission is scheduled to become operational from January 01, 2016. However, the central government has stated working on the proposals of the Commission since late. Expressing surprise on the issue, Finance Minister Choudhury said, “It is surprising indeed that there is a sudden activity for the new Pay Commission right ahead of the coming Parliament elections”. “We shall seek uniform benefits of all sorts for central and state government employees from the Pay Commission”, he added.
