AGARTALA, Oct 10 (TIWN): After BJP led State Govt had announced "Tripura Pay Matrix 2018" claiming it's a recommendation of 7th Pay Commission, CPI-M Ex-Education cum Law Minister MLA Tapan Chakraborty has hit the Govt for not actualizing promised 7th Pay Commission by "doubling salaries" for its employees and pensioners. In an interview with TIWN on Wednesday, Chakrabory said that even though CPI-M party has not come out with the final calculation of the pay-hikes but at the primary observation it's clear, what they (BJP) promised have not fulfilled. "It is not same to same as 7th pay Commission, just a hike of 0.32 factor than last years's CPI-M Govt led 2.25 factor. Also by announcing the Pay Matrix with effect of 2018, October (not 2016, January) has caused a massive losses to the pensioners as well as employees". "In words they promised many things, but in work a total dissimilarity has been spotted", said Tapan Chakraborty adding not much hike can be expected from this "Pay Matrix".

"Moreover, generally Pay-Matrix is implemented from January or April but the Govt has announced at an odd time of October. But before the election, they promised that the effect will be given from 2016, January", Chakraborty told TIWN.

"What most surprising is they are far from doubling the salaries. Neither DA, nor effect from 2016, not even total 7th Pay Commission was announced according to BJP's pre-poll Vision Document", he added.

CPI-M MP Jitendra Choudhury said, nothing has happened what was expected on 7th CPC.

Congress leader Gopal Roy has called the pay-hike as "JUMLA-Commission" implemented in the name of 7th Pay Commission.
