AGARTALA, Oct 3 (TIWN): On February 11, 2018 Amit Shah told employees if BJP voted to power 7th Pay Commission will be implemented from March 4, one day after election reult but today 7 months have gone, but Amit Shah's promise remained just as a JUMLA.

(Amit Shah's speech published by BJP on February 11 where he is saying "Change in the CPM government in Tripura on 3rd March, I assure that 7th pay commission will be implemented for government employees from 4th March, 2018")

On February 19, 2018, 1 day after Assembly Election, Chief Minister Biplab Deb said that 7th Pay Commission’s implementation needs 20,000 cores at least. Referring the Vision Document of BJP which was published by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Biplab Deb said, "When we were promising 7th pay commission that time we had to consult with the central govt and also talked to NITI Aayog. At least Rs. 20,000 crores we need to take for the 7th pay commission's allocation. In the same manner for allowances, wages the funding will also be increased by centre", added Deb one day after the poll was ended”.

However, when the so called “zero deficit” budget was announced it was said that Rs. 1000 crores have been kept for employees 7th Pay Commission. 7th Pay Commission has been delayed till December, 2018 and also July month’s DA has been missed. When employees were waiting for 7th pay commission before Durga Puja, not even July month’s pending DA was given to the employees. As a result neither DA nor 7th Pay Commission was given to the employees led massive frustration among the Govt employees. 

Before the election, BJP had promised to implement 7th Pay Commission for the Govt employees and the pensioners in the first cabinet meeting and Ami Shah asked employees to count the hiked salaries from March 4th but after 7 months Verma Committee failed to submit 7th Pay Commission.
