These are loss making organizations so with what funds do they propose to increase salaries by 25%. Is the treasury going to foot the increase and if they do can they afford it. Was it included in the 2011 November budget ?
OR do we have to pay for the increase ?... who is going to increase the salaries of the private sector ?

Get them to upgrade the service as well.for what they are paid for

Salary increase and bonus be given only to profit making business undertakings. Workers at loss making undertakings should not request for higher salary or bonus.
Now what if all other Govt servants too ask for a 25% salary increase? Who will pay, it is the tax payers.

Don't give them any pay hike.

These institutions are losing millions monthly and we have to pay for their pay hikes? Everyone just wants a free ride and not work for ti. Privatize them, like the SLT, and they start to make profits.

The CEB and the CPC employees are presently drawing a thumping salary and there are lot of other departments who do not get a reasonable salary and why not the government stop increasing the salaries of the CEB and CPC and grant increase to the other department employees. Whatever the increase is given it is the peoples blood sucking money and not from the corrupted Politicians. Go to hell.

What should we take from this? When academics ask for a pay rise everyone is angry. But when CEB. CPC and waterboard get a pay rise- no one dares to open their mouths. Does this mean lecturers (degree and most of the time postgraduate degree holders ) getting a gross salary of around Rs 35000.00 and a professor getting a gross salary of around Rs 55000.00 is fare?
