The government has announced some minimum wages to the private employees and they are very much lower than what they are paying. The government can make the salaries they are paying as minimum salaries. But the private industry may not survive by giving such a huge amount towards salaries. But what government can do is in addition to minimum wages they should decide some rate of increment per year so that seniors will get some good amount. Otherwise, in many cases, experienced persons also are getting minimum wages only.
Similarly the disparity is against the government employee in top and responsible posts.
Then there is a big disparity unfavourable to the government employee. That is of the severe disciplinary action. A government employyee is never rewarded or given incentives. But even a small mistake he is taken to tas and issued memos, expalanations called for, investigations done and his life will be made hell for a long time. But in private sector the erring empoyee is just sent out and he can take up another job elsewhere. But in government jobs the employee will always be under scare of the proverbial Democles sword hanging above his head. However good he works, he is not rewarded. .
Even for a rupee of rise or reimbursment of actual expenses i takes a long route and time to decide yes or no. In many government organisations the employees spend fom their hand for essential things and also on situations ike natural calamities. On such times it is only the government employees who are on the field to do help and care. Even for elections the government empoyees are deputed irrespective of their discomfort and difficulties.
In most designations and seats a government employee is accountable. They suffer from political intervention, political pressure andthreat.
As the private sector organisations do not show the full remuneration in their salary slips as salary, it is seen that many households where more than one or two famil ymembers are well employed in private sector with reasonable compensation too, have obtained Pink ration cards by which they collect many benefits . Many of them get many other benefits where the qualifyingthreshold is a certain amount of monthly salary. But a family of a government empoyee with lesser income will not get this benefit as his income is fully recorded to the last paisa as salry.
There are m,any employees regretting their joining the government job and not in private job. Private secto employes except in small organisations get incentives, persks, bonus and other benfits in cash and kind too.

Even this challenging situation would ease
In private sectors, we may get jobs but when we compare the salary and other facilities, it is like peanuts. You are overloaded with work, time-frame and may have to do over-time without pay so as to complete the work. When you talk about pay, it may start from 10K to 15K for an engineer, Nurses, etc. The leaves are also less when compared with government employees.
As per my suggestion, the government need to implement a basic pay scale for a post or designation in any private company. They need to verify the same through ESIC and PF account. Need to make them have insurance and also provide redemption for family insurances, etc.

Now the present NDA government is planning to cede all managerial powers of 46 public sector units to the private buyers. Some of the PSUs are running in loss like BSNL but some of them are making handsome profit like Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) are in pipeline to be sold to private firms.
In this way this disparity in salaries and other perks between government and private sector will be narrowed down.
