AGARTALA, April 28 (TIWN): Tripura government had set up a high-powered committee on increasing salaries and pensions for its employees and pensioners and reportedly the committee had sat in a meeting for the first time with all the departments. During the meeting the pay structure will be reviewed and Bhanulal Saha’s Rs. 600 cores of budgets utilization will be cleared.

The meeting will be continued till tomorrow.

 A three-member Pay and Pension Revision Committee has been constituted by the cabinet for giving recommendations for revision of existing pay structure and pension for the government employees and pension holders. Former Chief Secretary G. K. Rao would be the Chairman of the Pay and Pension Revision Committee and Principal Secretary Sushil Kumar and Additional Secretary Debashish Modak would be the member and secretary to the committee respectively.

But employees are unhappy with Govt’s delaying of Pay Commission’s implementation and setting another set of Pay review committee.

Reportedly,  in the Pay Commission announced by the Central Govt 125 % DA was added with the present basic salary, whereas more 30 % basic has been increased. Already the Central Govt employees are getting the amount from 2016-1st January. Already in other states the 7th pay commission has been implemented or paycommission has been implemented, but surprisingly, while presenting the budget the finance minister with the excuse of no fund denied to implement 7th pay commission, whereas as per the Assembly data from 2013 to 2016 under the sanctioned fund for Tripura Govt employees, there are atleast 932.55 crores have kept as unspent.
