The History of Pay Revision Commission


Article 309 of the Constitution of India authorises creation of a civil service in every State of the Union of India. The civil service of a State plays a crucial role in achieving the overall development of its people. The conditions of recruitment and service of the members of the civil service from top to bottom are common but distinct in several respects. They raise demands for better conditions of service which would definitely involve more financial benefits in the form of:

Career Growth

Career growth essentially implies movement from lower levels to higher levels in service which involves additional responsibility and concomitant compensation. This progression ...

Pensionary Benefits

Pension, Commutation, DCRG and Family Pension constitute pensionary benefits. Pension is conceived as a reward for a Government servant who did unblemished service during the most productive ...

Leave Benefits

Government as a benign employer takes care of the personal needs of employees. So Government have offered different kinds of leave - with and without leave salary to Government employees ...

Medical Benefits

Government provides medical facilities to its employees for treatment at Government hospitals and select private hospitals through a system of reimbursement of cost of treatment. On certain specific ..

Periodic Revision

The State of Kerala came into existence on 01.11.1956. Since then 10 Pay Revision Commissions/Committees were appointed by the Government for revising the pay of Government Employees/Teachers. ..

Cost of Living

The cost of living serves as a yardstick to determine what should be the ideal wage structure of an employee in Government service. The all round price hike may adversely affect the living condition ..

Government have to find an answer to all these demands by striking a reasonable balance between the demands of its employees and the scarce resources. The objective of every Pay Commission is to find a solution to this vexatious issue. In this process, the Commission has to act as a neutral person between the employer and the employee and has to make recommendations to modify pay and allowances of employees in a dispassionate manner without upsetting the balance between a contended civil service and development needs of the State.

It is evident from the history of Pay Revision Commissions both in Central and State Governments that the role of Commissions is not limited to that of recommending changes in pay and allowances alone. The Government look up on the Commissions as an advisory body to suggest timely changes for improving accountability and quality of civil service also. The Commission has to fulfill this responsibility much to the aspiration of the three stake holders of the civil services-civil servants, public and the Government. This is the idea behind Constitution of the present Pay Revision Commission as was the case of previous Commissions.
