With lockdown was recently lifted and unlocking is taking place in a phased manner, the economic and business activity in the state has picked up over the last month. The state government’s financial position is said to have improved to an extent. In this backdrop, CM KCR has taken the decision to pay full salaries to the employees with effect from June. The decision was taken on Tuesday after CM’s meeting with the finance department officials.
