Lt Governor Anil Baijal has approved the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), a move that will benefit thousands of employees of the public transporter.
"Approved the proposal for implementing 7th Central Pay Commission in DTC. Urge DTC employees to make bus transport in Delhi the best," Baijal tweeted today.
Implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations will provide financial benefit to around 17,000 DTC employees, said a DTC official.
"It will result in salary hikes in the range of around Rs 10,000 to 30,000 as per seniority. The average pay hike will be around 20 percent," he said.
The Delhi government notified implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for its over one lakh employees in August last year.
