THE government is likely to constitute a pay commission in a month to review and recommend a revised salary structure for the employees of the government and the autonomous bodies.
“We’re now thinking about the composition, considering names of people who can be there in the commission,” Finance Adviser AB Mirza Azizul Islam told reporters at the Secretariat while talking on the status of the move.
During his June 9 budget speech, the adviser proposed constitution of a pay commission at the beginning of 2008-2009 fiscal year.
Pointing out that people of the fixed-income group are facing hardship due to high inflation arising from the abnormal price hike of essentials on both domestic and international markets in recent times, he then said the existing salary structure of the low-paid government employees is not consistent with the cost of living.
Asked about a date of formation of the pay commission, Mirza Azizul said, “Maybe within a month or so. I can’t give a specific date.”
“The government is now thinking how many members will be there in the commission and who will be there,” he said, adding: “We’ll have to draft the terms of reference.”
Asked when the commission will submit its report, Mirza Aziz said they were yet to decide it.
The first pay commission was formed in 1972. thereafter, four other pay commissions were formed in 1976, 1984, 1989 and 1996.
