Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh held a closed meet with his senior Cabinet colleagues on Wednesday regarding the pay commission recommendations.It is learnt that the Cabinet is all set to clear the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations on Thursday. The Prime Minister will announce details during his independence day speech. About 5.4 million government employees will get their pay hikes and the government will have to shell out an extra Rs 20,000 crore.The armed forces were unhappy with the pay hikes but now sources say a compromise has been reached between the government and the services. The government has accepted the demands of the defence forces. But it's a bit less than the 15% extra they had demanded. So, if in April the promised hike for a colonel was 15 thousand rupees, now it's going to be about 19 thousand.
