Itanagar, May 8: The Confederation of Service Associations of Arunachal Pradesh (CoSAAP) has urged the State Government for immediate implementation of revised allowances for the government employees as per the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission.
CoSAAP president Pate Marik claimed that the State Government employees were being deprived of the benefits as per the 7th CPC recommendations.
Terming the reported constitution of a committee by the State Government to examine the feasibilities of 7th Pay Commission as “a deliberate attempt to buy time,” the employees’ apex body questioned on the necessity of formation of another committee while the Abdul Basit Committee report has already been submitted. The State Government had constituted a committee under the chairmanship of Director of Audit and Pension Abdul Basit to work on the implementation of allowances under the 7th CPC.
“Formation of another committee on the same issue is illogical, unnecessary and an attempt of buying time,” said Marik, while opposing the formation of the second committee. “If the Central government employees are getting allowances as per the recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission then why are we being deprived of?” Marik questioned, while accusing the government of discriminating its own employees.
He claimed that all revised allowances, such as non-practicing allowance for doctors, house rent allowance, tough location allowance, children education allowance and transport allowance etc., are still pending and demanded the government to implement it in toto as per the 7th CPC recommendations. CoSAAP also requested the Government to restore the old medical re-imbursement and implement All India Medical Attendance Rules as per the recommendation of the 7th CPC.
Further, stating that many departments are not following the State government’s decision to conduct departmental promotion committee (DPC) meeting from time to time, the confederation urged the authority concerned to act against the defaulting departments, which delay the DPC.
