This will benefit about 4.65 lakh Gujarat government employees and over 4.12 lakh pensioners, setting the exchequer back by about Rs Rs 3,279 crore.

"As the seventh pay commission was implemented with retrospective effect, employees and pensioners are eligible for arrears.

These benefits will go to 4.65 lakh employees and 4.12 lakh pensioners of the Gujarat government," the Times of India quoted Patel as saying.

The state government had implemented the recommendations for government employees on August 29, 2017, but PSU employees were still waiting for the order.

The Central government had approved the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in June 2016. The minimum pay was raised to Rs 18,000 a month from Rs 7,000. The employees had demanded a raise in minimum salary to Rs 26,000 and it was also said that the figures could be raised to Rs 21,000 per month. However, nothing was confirmed.
