GUWAHATI, Dec 1: The Sadou Asam Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) will discuss the Pay Commission report in its delegate meet to be held on December 4 at Hojai. The parishad will also discuss the issues of casual workers, muster roll and contractual employees at the meeting. SAKP president Bashab Kalita said this here in a statement today. Earlier, SAKP president Kalita, reacting to the pay panel report, said they are more or less okay with the proposal of the panel barring the date of implementation.

On the other hand, the Assam Diploma Engineers’ Service Association has expressed displeasure over the pay panel report.

Association’s president Ranjan Mahanta in a statement said that the association expected that suggestion will be given to rectify the drawbacks involving the wages of the diploma engineers in pay panel report but no such suggestions was figured in the report.

“We hope that the pay panel will address the issues of the diploma engineers but there is no suggestion in the report to solve the problems of the diploma engineers,” he said.

Meanwhile, the All Assam Police Association has expressed strong reaction over the pay commission report.

The leaders of the police association in a press meet here today said that even though the seventh pay commission has suggested minimum increase of salary scale and allowances of the police, the commission has not made any reference in respect of the some major demands of the association.

On the other hand, the Asom Raijyik Karmachari Federation will stage a dhar in Guwahati on December 9 demanding implementation of the pay panel recommendations with effect from January 1, 2016 instead of April 1, 2017.

Fince Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in a press meet recently had said the pay commission recommendations would be examined by a three-member committee of commissioners and will then go to the Cabinet for approval.

“The new scale will come into effect on April 1, 2017. The state government will have to bear an additiol burden but we are in a position to bear that,” Sarma had said.
