After three months of cut in salaries and pensions, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has directed officials to pay full salaries to government employees and pension to pensioners for this month. 

 

All the government employees, all India service officials and elected public representatives were getting half or lesser wages since March 2020. With the latest decision, all of them would get full wages from June 2020.

The Chief Minister took the decision considering the improving financial situation of the State.

Earlier the government had taken the decision to pay only 50 percent salaries to the state government employees and 75 percent pensions to the retired employees as the state was staring at a financial crisis owing to the nation-wide imposed COVID-19 lockdown.

With lockdown was recently lifted and unlocking is taking place in a phased manner, the economic and business activity in the state has picked up over the last month.
