Address employees’ concerns

Dear Editor,
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper I would like to appeal to the government to fulfill the commitment made to the employees regarding pay anomalies of the clerical cadre by implementing the landmark judgement of the Hon’ble High Court vide SWP No. 3058/2015, M.P. No. 01/2015 in letter and spirit at an earliest at least before implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. On behalf of the aggrieved employees I request the concerned authorities to issue separate order as were issued when anomalies of other 14 cadres were removed. It is surprising that the remunerations of the legislators are made more than handsome in one go but when it comes to employees’ problems the government adopts a lackadaisical attitude thus adding to their agonies. The state government is duty bound to address the burning issues of the employees which include conducting D.P.C in all the departments after every 6 months and reorganization of clerical cadre outside Civil Secretariat on the pattern of Civil Secretariat, Increase of Medical Allowance from Rs. 300 p.m to Rs. 2000 p.m. and Regularization of Daily Wagers/ Casual Labourers/ Contractual/ Anganwari and Asha workers.
