Mr. Mathpathi said that already 23 States, including Bihar, have accepted the recommendations and will implement the recommendations of the commission for State government employees.
“Karnataka should implement the commission for State government employees from January, 2016,” he said.
He said that there was a huge differences in the pay benefits extended to Group A and D employees.
While Group A employees got 14 per cent increase in the sixth pay commission, Group D employees only got 1 per cent increase.
Mr. Mathpathi wanted the State government to fill 2 lakh posts to help reduce work burden and to improve functioning.
Demanding the regularisation of guest lecturers, Mr. Mathpath said that the government should fill all Group D posts, on priority basis.
