AGARTALA, April 30 (TIWN): Tripura Trinamool Congress on May 3rd will place deputation before the Chief Secretary Sanjib Ranjan regarding 7th pay commission's implementation replacing the present Pay and Pay revision Committee. In a press meet led by Tripura TMC Trade Unions Congress President Samar Roy, Biplab Kar, Vice President members as Chandan Nath Swapan Saha said that demanding the 7th Pay Commission Trinamool to place deputation before the Chief Secretary on May 3 lead by Trinamool President MLA Asish Saha and MLA Sudip Barman. "We have 23 demands including salary issues, various demands of footpath hawkers , Jutemil workers, tea workers. Tripura Govt eventhough says that it is with the poor people but its claims are quite artificial", said Samar Roy at Trinamool Bhawan on Sunday. Their demands will also include the money return issue of the Chit Fund victims in state Tripura. However, when already Pay and Pay Revision Committee has already been set, then how far their demands will keep value it has doubt, eventhough Chief political leaders are reportedly meeting the Chief Secretary.

It's noteworthy that 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 on April-28.

During the meeting the pay structure was reviewed and Rs. 600 cores of budgets was made cleared.

 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.

In this condition Trinamool to demand the abolition of the committee and implementation of 7th pay commission.
