Provision of Rs. 40 thousand crore for the salary of new employees. If we add the amount of annual increment given to the employees in addition to the dearness allowance given to the state employees every year and the dearness relief given to the pensioners, then the government will have to pay almost Rs. The expenditure is Rs 10-12 thousand crores. From the provision of more than Rs 53,000 crore in the current budget, it is clear that the remaining provision of about Rs 40,000 crore has been made for new jobs etc.
Good news, recruitment will be done in another department of UP government, UPSSSC will issue notification soon.
Of the total revenue coming to the government through taxes, more than half is spent in payment of salaries, pensions and interest. Among these, the maximum amount has to be spent every year on salary.
