However, this has been implemented only in Rajasthan by the Vasundhra Raje Government. It's election year, and the government will leave no stone unturned to showcase that they are working for the benefit of the people. Hopefully, other states are expected to follow soon.
Suitable amendments are also being made in the Rajasthan Service Act for incorporating the increased leave.

As per the news, the Rajasthan state government also accepted the demands of a section of workers and grant Assured Career Progression (ACP) to them at nine, 18 and 27 years of service if they have already availed of selection payscale at these years.

Earlier, the government on September 12, 2008, while announcing the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, had decided to follow the lines of the Centre and give ACP to its workers only after the com-pletion of 10, 20 and 30 years of service.

In yet another gift bonanza for its employees, the state government also changed its earlier stance of deducting the house rent for those employees staying at government quarters from September 1, 2008 instead of the earlier announced January 1, 2007.

A release from the state government clarified that the government on September 12, 2008, had announced that the deduction for those workers staying in government houses on a revised rate would be imple-mented from January 1, 2007 - the date from which the state has agreed to pay arrears to its employees.

However, now the decision stands revised and the employees will not have to pay the sum accruing between January 1, 2007 to August 31, 2008.

Rajasthan is the first state in the country to have notified the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission and has decided to implement it in the state for its employees from September 1, 2006.
