Sixth pay commission

While the Prime Minister's announcement to set up the Sixth Pay Commission for Central government employees will bring cheer to well-paid employees, lakhs of citizens in India living the below the poverty line without any hope of betterment in their living conditions will be disappointed and frustrated.

They know that when the government liberally increases wages and perks to its already affluent employees, it inevitably results in a situation where the funds available for the betterment of the poor and downtrodden will be proportionately reduced.

And so the poor become poorer.

N. S. Venkataraman
