GUWAHATI, Jan 11: The Sadou Asom Joutho Masterroll Shramik Santha (SAJMSS) has said that Dispur has not implemented the directive of the Gauhati High Court that asked it (Dispur) to pay muster roll, casual, fixed pay, work-charge workers at the minimum pay scale, along with other emoluments. Talking to newsmen in Guwahati on Thursday, Santha secretary Kamalakhya Das said: "The High Court issued this directive on June 6, 2017. The court also asked the State Government to implement the directive from August 1, 2017. Six months have already elapsed, but the directive of the high court has not been implemented as yet. Muster roll, fixed pay, casual and work-charge employees have been working in various departments in the state for the past 20-25 years with their services not regularized." Santha president Ajir Ali said: "The directive of the high court was such that such employees who have worked more than ten years should be paid at the minimum scale meant for fourth grade employees. There are around 12,000 such employees who have crossed ten years in office. We want a positive response from Dispur by January 26 this year, failing which we'll be compelled to agitation for survival."
