HYDERABAD: Demanding that the State government implement the Pay Revision Commission (PRC) recommendations at the earliest, Secretariat Employees’ Unions on Tuesday demanded that the government stop buying time by constituting committees to look into the matter.

As part of its consultative process before submitting the recommendations to the State government, the Pradeep Chandra Committee on Tuesday elicited views of the Secretariat Employees’ Union here.

Stressing that the new PRC should include 75 per cent fitment, the unions demanded that transportation allowance, gratuity and other benefits be hiked on a par with Central government employees.

They also demanded that the government consider the new PRC with effect from 1 July 2013. Owing to the delay in implementation of PRC recommendations, the employees lost out on three PRCs till date, claimed Telangana Secretariat Association president Narender Rao Madhawaram.

“The present 10th PRC should have been 13th PRC. So, the government should implement it from the said date to compensate for the losses,” he said and found fault with the government move to consider three members as a basic unit of family. Among a host of other demands, the unions also sought `15,000 per year per child as reimbursement amount for school fee.

The committee is likely to submit its report to the State government in the second week of this month.
