Itagar, April 18: The Confederation of Service Associations of Aruchal Pradesh has defended the state government by clarifying that no order of restricting the employees from withdrawing Government Provident Funds (GPF) was issued by the government. The clarification from CoSAAP came amid rumours of fincial mismagement by the state government and allegedly debarred the employees from withdrawing the GPF amount.

CoSAAP secretary general Pate Marik in a statement claimed that the government has not issued any such order banning the employees from withdrawing their GPF/NPS money as being rumoured.

"In case employees are deprived or debarred from withdrawing their money by an order issued by the government, the CoSAAP will definitely intervene and oppose such move," Marik asserted, adding that CoSAAP has no objection if the employees are not deprived of their rights.

However, Marik asked the employees who are facing such undue problems (if any) to come forward and report the same to CoSAAP so that the matter is redressed.

Claiming that the state government was planning to create its own State Pay Commission, the CoSAAP observed that it's too early to go for such move considering the state's fincial position.

The creation of State Pay Commission will directly affect the state exchequer and employees and government should reconsider it, CoSAAP added while discouraging the government on idea of create own pay commission.

It lauded that the government for fulfilling some of their major demands, and urged to address others demands which include implementation of 60 years retirement age, transport allowances, children education allowances etc.

CoSAAP also expressed serious note of the repeated attack on teachers particularly college teachers and appealed the students to refrain from such activities which will only ruin their life and career.
