GUWAHATI, Jan 12 � The Sadou Asam Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) has hailed the New Year announcement of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi that the State Government would soon constitute a new pay commission for revision of the salaries of its officers, employees and teachers.
The central executive committee of the SAKP has made an appeal to the State Government to constitute an efficient and rational pay commission, which would be able to feel the pay-related problems of the Government employees and the wages of the casual, fixed-pay, muster roll employees serving under the State Government departments, said the SAKP in a statement here.
The meeting held between the Chief Minister and the representatives of the SAKP on February 18 last year, had decided to enhance the wages of the casual, fixed-pay and muster roll employees. But the decision is yet to be implemented.
The central executive committee of the SAKP, in its meeting today resented the fact that a section of employees are made to face hardship by not clearing their retention for seven to eight months for the past several decades. This has been making these employees work without salary for seven to eight months. The central executive committee of the SAKP has demanded an end to this situation once and for all.
The SAKP central executive committee has demanded that the salaries of the causal, fixed-pay and muster roll employees of the State Government should be fixed at par with the salary of the fourth grade employees of the Government.
It also demanded steps to finalise the free-of-cost medical treatment scheme for the State Government employees.
