Jammu & Kashmir – Implement 7th Pay Commission recommendations

Home » Jammu and Kashmir » You are reading » Jammu & Kashmir – Implement 7th Pay Commission recommendations Jammu & Kashmir – Implement 7th Pay Commission recommendations Sir, Notwithstanding the fact that the Central Government has implemented the 7th Pay Commission recommendations two years ago i.e w.e.f January 1, 2016 in favour of the Central Government employees, pensioners and family pensioners which is a welcome step but it is very strange and surprising that the J&K State Government has not implemented the 7th Pay Commission Recommendations in J&K State as yet who also deserve the same. Instead of this the State Government doubled the salaries and the allowances of the Legislators- MLA(s) and MLC(s) from Rs.80,000 to 1,60,000 per month, made massive hike in the salary of the chief minister, ministers and ministers of State, doubled the pension of the former Legislators from Rs.28,000 to 50,000 per month, hiked the motor car advance, housing loan and travelling allowance and daily allowance of the legislators by 100% and as such ignored the J&K State Government employees. It is worthwhile to mention it here that it was none other than the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti herself who in the floor of the J&K Legislative Assembly told that the employees would have to wait for two years for the Implementation of the 7th Pay Commission Recommendations. Here arises a million dollor question as to why she herself alongwith the ministers and the legislators could not wait for two years being a representative of the common masses? Now two years have lapsed and the employees/pensioners and Family Pensioners etc have shown so much patience till now. Therefore, it is fervently requested to the Chief Minister/Finance Minister J&K State Government to kindly implement the 7th Pay Commission Recommendations in toto/at par with the Central Government employees. Hope, for an early positive action in the interest of natural justice. Yours cordially, Ashok K. Koul (Lalpuri) Member All J&K Teacher’s/Lecturer’s Forum C/o 45, Ajeet Colony, Extn.

Tamil Nadu government buses announced Indefinite Strike

Home » Tamil Nadu » You are reading » Tamil Nadu government buses announced Indefinite Strike admin January 5, 2018 Tamil Nadu government buses announced Indefinite Strike 2018-01-05T03:55:24+00:00 Tamil Nadu No Comment Tamil Nadu government buses off roads as 10 transport unions go on strike About ten transport unions today announced an indefinite strike following collapse of wage related talks with the state government even as some buses went off the roads in Tamil Nadu. Trade union representatives, who attended the talks with Transport minister M R Vijayabaskar, said no consensus was arrived at over a key demand on a “factor” determining wage structure.On the other hand, Vijayabaskar said the hike proposed this time was “unprecedented” and urged the workers to resume work in in the interest of the people. He said a majority of the workers were affiliated to the ruling AIADMK backed Union and expressed confidence that bus services will not be affected.”There will be minor issues but we will address them,” he said.The government’s ‘2.44 factor’ will result in an additional expense of Rs 81 crore per month on transport corporations even as a special increment was being given to those who had joined work between 2013 and 2016, he said.This wage agreement had the highest revision proposed, where the minimum was Rs 2,684 while the highest was Rs 11,361, the minister said. “I hope the employees realise this fact and resume work,” he said. Thirty-five unions have accepted the government’s proposal, Vijayabaskar said. Trade union leaders, A Soundarrajan (CITU) and M Shanmugam of DMK backed Labour Progressive Federation (LPF), told reporters that the strike was on after “talks collapsed.” “While our plea was for a 2.57 factor (a wage determination technique), the government said it was not acceptable and insisted on a 2.44 factor,” Shanmugam said.Further, the unions demanded fixing the minimum basic salary at Rs 19,500 whereas the government wanted it to be Rs 17,700, he added.Soundarrajan, a senior CPI(M) leader, said the government’s proposal was not acceptable to them.”The strike starts now,” he said.The unions were aware of the hardship that people would face following their decision to go on strike, but “we have no other way to tackle the government ‘s approach,” he said. “We regret that people will suffer… we are ready for talks anytime,” the leader said. About 10 unions had joined the strike and these comprise about 95 per cent of the 1.4 lakh odd workforce of the state transport corporations, he claimed when asked how many employees will join the stir. Today’s talks also centred on pending arrears amounting to about Rs 7,000 crore, the leaders added. The strike announcement took commuters by surprise as a section of the employees had stopped plying buses in the evening even before the official announcement from the unions came. With some buses remaining off the roads, people opted for alternative modes of transport such as train, autorickshaws and private transport in various parts of the state. http://www.stategovernmentnews.in/tamil-nadu-government-buses-announced-indefinite-strike/ 2018-01-05T03:55:24+00:00 admin Tamil Nadu Bus union Indefinite Strike,strike of Tamilnadu transport union,Tamil Nadu Government News,Tamil Nadu State Government News Tamil Nadu government buses off roads as 10 transport unions go on strike About ten transport unions today announced an indefinite strike following collapse of wage related talks with the state government even as some buses went off the roads in Tamil Nadu.

Assam government offices : No effect of new timings

Home » Assam » You are reading » Assam government offices : No effect of new timings admin January 2, 2018 Assam government offices : No effect of new timings 2018-01-02T03:22:38+00:00 Assam No Comment Assam government offices : No effect of new timings Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s appeal to ensure punctuality in government offices drew a lukewarm response from the state government employees as most of them failed to reach office by 9.30am on New Year’s day. The government changed the office timings from 10am to 5pm to 9.30am to 5pm on all working days with half-an-hour lunch break, which came into effect from Monday. The employees, however, continued their usual trend of getting to work 10 to 30 minutes late with only around 20 per cent of the employees reaching office by 9.30am. Sonowal recently urged employees to reach office on time so that people don’t have to wait to get their work done. He had also exhorted them to set an example of efficient work culture before the young generation and contribute towards the resurgence of the state’s economy. Basab Kalita, president of Sadou Asom Karmachari Parishad – the apex body of state government employees – said a large number of employees from places in lower Assam like Pathsala in Barpeta district come by a train, which reaches Guwahati at 9.30am and because of that they get delayed. “Otherwise, barring a few habitual latecomers majority of the employees reported for duty on time,” he claimed. Kalita said though they have accepted the revised timings there is a feeling that the efforts and devotion of those employees who often work beyond working hours may have gone unnoticed or unrecognised by the government. Director of inland water transport Bharat Bhushan Dev Choudhury said the timings of ferry service from North Guwahati has been advanced by half-an-hour in view of the new office working hours from Monday. There are around 4.2 lakh employees in various government departments across the state. The state cabinet had given its nod to the revised office timings last Wednesday and a notification to this effect was issued on Saturday. http://www.stategovernmentnews.in/assam-government-offices-no-effect-new-timings/ 2018-01-02T03:22:14+00:00 admin Assam Assam,Assam government offices,Assam state government employees Assam government offices : No effect of new timings Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal's appeal to ensure punctuality in government offices drew a lukewarm response from the state government employees as most of them failed to reach office by 9.30am on New Year's day.

Punjab: Not paid salaries for four months, sewa kendra employees in Amritsar go on strike

Home » Punjab » You are reading » Punjab: Not paid salaries for four months, sewa kendra employees in Amritsar go on strike Punjab: Not paid salaries for four months, sewa kendra employees in Amritsar go on strike 2017-12-22T16:40:33+00:00 Punjab No Comment Punjab: Not paid salaries for four months, sewa kendra employees in Amritsar go on strike There are 2,147 sewa kendras in the state providing nearly 67 services under the Right to Service (RTS) Act. There are around 7,000 employees in these kendras, who have not been given salaries for the past four months. Employees of 153 sewa kendras in the district, who have not got their salary for the past four months, went on a strike on Thursday, causing inconvenience to the people who had come to get their work done. There are 2,147 sewa kendras in the state providing nearly 67 services under the Right to Service (RTS) Act. There are around 7,000 employees in these kendras, who have not been given salaries for the past four months. It was a dream project of former deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal to set up sewa kendras in cities and villages to deliver door-to-door services to people. The previous SAD-BJP government had handed over the project to the BLS International Pvt Ltd. Talking to HT, BLS International operational manager (Zone 1) Shaishav Sood said, “The state government has failed to release the funds. Payment of more than ₹150 crore is already pending with the government. How can we release the salaries if funds are not released?” Simranjit Singh, a sewa kendra employee, said he has not received his salary for the past four months. “We are protesting, but to no avail. Now majority of employees are thinking of quitting their jobs. There are some employees, who don’t have enough money to even commute from their homes to the centres,” he said. “The employees of other districts of the state have also been protesting because of non-release of salaries and have been on strike for the past few days,” he said. “We don’t want to create problems for people visiting sewa kendras. But we are forced to do so as the government is not sensitive towards our plight,” said another employee. Hardial Singh, who had come for his passport-related work at the district-level sewa kendra here, said, “Due to strike I was not able to get my work done. Many people like me are being harassed. It is the state government’s fault, which is not paying the salaries.” A senior officer of the Amritsar administration refused to comment on the matter, saying the matter relates to the department of state governance reforms. State governance reform director Parminderpal Singh could not be contacted, despite repeated phone calls by HT. http://www.stategovernmentnews.in/punjab-not-paid-salaries-four-months-sewa-kendra-employees-amritsar-go-strike/ 2017-12-22T16:40:04+00:00 admin Punjab Punjab State Government News,sewa kendra employees Punjab: Not paid salaries for four months, sewa kendra employees in Amritsar go on strike There are 2,147 sewa kendras in the state providing nearly 67 services under the Right to Service (RTS) Act.

The Committee will give its recommendations to the government, including all of them. Experts from the unions say that the whole process takes six months to a year by considering previous experiences. The govt will take the decision after examining PRC report on accepting proposals, which needs modifications. Although this process will continue, the new PRC will come into effect from July 2018.
