Gujarat Sixth Pay Commission Salary Hike 
Following the Cabinet meeting, The Gujarat government spokesperson Jay Narayan Vyas said, "The secretaries' committee will submit its report to the Cabinet sub-committee , formed early this year on what the sixth pay commission may mean to Gujarat." What this means is that there are pretty good chances of implementation of the Sixth pay Commission recommendations, but it will require lot of Bureaucratic Processes in place and hence time.
Vyas also complained that the Gujarat government has still not received "full details" of the sixth pay commission, including what it means to all-India employees.
Last year, when the pay commission was still busy preparing its report , Chief Minister Narendra Modi had demanded from the Centre financial help to ward off the burden on the state exchequer.
Gujarat is one of the states in good financial health. Though the Officials apprehend that fiscal deficit, which stood at 2.16 per cent of the gross state domestic product (GSDP) last year, might rise in case the sixth pay panel is implemented.
With a whopping burden of Rs 2,000 crore per annum, most of the gain from the rise in value-added tax (VAT) and other state taxes' incomes, which comes to Rs 3,100 crore per annum . "We will not be able to pass on the gain for developmental needs in the Centre doesn't help," an official said. In all, 4.87 lakh government employees and 3.13 lakh pensioners are waiting to gain a rise of 20 per cent from the sixth pay panel.
Of these, 3.92 lakh are employees working in government departments in different parts of Gujarat, including teachers in government schools. Then, there are nearly 88,000 employees working in aided institutes and another 6,000 employees in state public sector undertakings.
