New Delhi, Oct 1, 2008: The state government employees in troubled Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) state may be in for some good news soon. Sixth Pay Commission it seems is all set to be implemented in the state that is under virtual siege for the last three months.

The state government has formed a committee to look into the issue of implementation of the sixth pay commission in a state that is under continuous bouts of uprising against India. Both Jammu and Kashmir Valley are under siege due to continuous agitations from two different parties.

In Jammu the issue of land allotted to Shri Amarnath trust stoked fire that continued more than two months.

The agitators not only brought Jammu area to a standstill but were able to block main highway to Kashmir Valley thus imposing an effective blockade of the valley.

The state government of Jammu and Kashmir that was under constant demand to implement the sixth pay commission there has constituted two committees to look into the possibilities of enhancement of retirement age of the state government employees from 58 to 60 years and implementation of 6th Pay commission, sources in the administration told a local news agency. According to the reports, a proposal in State Administrative Council (SAC) meeting of September 24, 2008 for enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60 and implementation of 6th pay commission for state government employees was to be adopted. However, the decision was put on hold as Youth Federation had submitted a memorandum to the Governor N N Vohra, asking him not to take any final decision in this regard.
