SEJAC for publication of Sixth Pay Commission’s full report

SILCHAR, Nov 27: The State Employees’ Joint Action Committee (SEJAC) of Assam today submitted a memorandum to the Cachar Deputy Commissioner addressed to the Assam Chief Minister pressing for fulfillment of their demands for which it has been agitating for a long time. The demands outlined include parity in pay and other allowances of the State employees with that of the Centre which was to be effective since July 1, 2006.

The memorandum further demanded publication of the full report of the Sixth Pay Commission and to furnish copies of the same to the State employees’ bodies. Besides, it called for effective steps to curb price rise, provincialization of recognized educational institutions, regularization of the services of casual muster roll and all the employees on fixed pay and enhancement of the  services of fourth grade employees by two years.

The JAC, taking umbrage at the partial and inconsistent report of the Pay Commission, termed it as an exercise of the State Government to create confusion among the employees and to divide them in order to sabotage their democratic movement.

The committee, in the memorandum, also reminded the Chief Minister of his assurance to publish the full report and to bring about parity in the pay structure of the State employees with that of the Centre. It warned the government not to take any arbitrary decision on the matter, but to adopt judicious steps for conceding to the just demands of the employees. The Joint Employees’ Action Committee is a conglomerate of 55 organizations. THE SENTINEL
