Impact of Salary Equalization on Panchayat Secretaries' Performance in Telangana AuthorsSiddharth George, Martin Mattsson Completion Time10 Minutes Close DateJan. 31, 2024 DisciplineEconomics FieldDevelopment Economics, Public Economics CountryIndia Abstract This study evaluates the effects of a significant salary increase for Junior Panchayat Secretaries (JPS) in Telangana, India, aligning their pay with that of regular Panchayat Secretaries (PS). Previously, JPS earned substantially less than PS, despite performing nearly identical duties in village administration and development. The Telangana government's policy reform in July 2021 equalized their salaries. We will ask you to the impact of this pay rise on the performance of these bureaucrats, measured through various metrics, including supervisor assessments, self-reported data, and citizen evaluations.
When uploading forecasting surveys, authors are asked to select several key questions which are often the questions they think are the most important to the study.
