Sat, Dec 1, 2012, 09:24 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 01, Colombo: Secretary of Sri Lanka Ministry of Finance and Planning Dr. P.B. Jayasundera said that a salary commission would be appointed for salary revision in both public and private sectors.

He said that such a salary commission would be appointed for the first time in the history.

The commission that will be appointed in January 2013 according to a budget proposal aims to compile a common policy for salaries of both public and private sector.

Sources said the government had taken this decision since such a necessity had arisen due to massive discrepancies prevailing in the salary scales between the public and private sectors.

The salary scales of the public sector would be updated to match with the modern conditions and the commission will provide guidance to the private sector to draft salary scales for the employees.
