After the TRS victory in the MLC elections from two graduates’ constituencies in the state, CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao announced a hike of 30% in the salaries of all government employees. The orders will be implemented from 1 April. Though the salary hike was due in 2019, the KCR government has been postponing the same for financial reasons.
The state government employees voted for him in a big way in the recent MLC elections, following a meeting with KCR a few days before the polling where he promised to give them a decent salary hike. And it was only after the TRS won the elections, he announced the pay revision. As promised before the 2018 December Assembly elections, the CM also announced enhancement of retirement age of all the employees from 58 to 61 years with immediate effect.
