Nov 08, 2013 (LBO) - The Sri Lankan government plans to raise salaries of workers in the overstaffed state sector with the increases being staggered to limit inflationary pressures, according to the budget for 2013.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is also finance minister, told parliament he plans to increase allowances given to public servants by 1,500 rupees a month from next year.

A cost-of-living allowance of 750 rupees a month will be paid from January 2013 to all public servants, he said.

The balance will be given in stages through a five percent raise in the basic pay with a minimum of 750 rupees and a maximum of 2,500 rupees as an additional allowance to all public servants.

To contain "inflationary pressure" stemming from such increases, Rajapaksa said he proposed to give half of the planned five percent pay hike from May 2013 and the balance from September 2013.

All those in "staff" categories will be given 50 percent of the pay hike from July 2013 and the balance in October 2013.

Rajapaksa also proposed raising allowances given to judges, university academic staff and doctors and other special categories "within affordable limits" in the budget, with half of the raise being given from January 2013 and the rest from next July.

The government now employs 1.3 million people, Rajapaksa said.

"This is twice the size in 2005," he said. "The engagement of such a large number of people is done by spending 366 billion rupees for wages alone. This was 139 billion rupees in 2005."

In addition, the government spends 112 billion rupees to pay the pensions of half-a-million retired public servants, Rajapaksa said.

The 2013 budget also proposed a special allowance of 750 rupees a month to those public officials who retired before 2004 and 500 rupees a month to those who retired between 2005 and 2006.

Half this increase will be given from January 2013 and the balance from next July.

Rajapaksa also plans to increase the cost-of-living allowance of pensioners by 500 rupees a month from next January.

Rupee has been significantly devalued so there should be a salary hike for everyone(not only for state workers)

Trade Unions charge that the proposed Rs. 1500 monthly increase in the allowance of state employees in the 2013 Budget, is inadequate.

They point out that the government has completely failed to consider state employees in the budget proposals.

The trade union leaders stress that the proposed allowance is not sufficient in comparison to the increasing cost of living.
