Dhubri, April 5: The All Assam Judicial Employees’ Association (AAJEA) expressed deep resentment over the pay structure published recently in the revision of pay by the State Government.
Reacting sharply against the Revision of Pay (ROP) which was published by the State Government on March 17, AAJEA said that AAJEA was highly dissatisfied with non-inclusion of pay structure with revised scale of pay as recommended in page no.157 para 1.20 by the 7th Assam Pay and Productivity Commission in the ROP 2017, leading to immense dissatisfaction of the judicial employees of Assam.
The ROP 2017 has also not disclosed the category of the posts against each of the employees in accordance with their status and grade and also not reflected anything about the benefits as suggested by the Justice Shetty Commission’s recommendations, the association alleged.
Talking to The Sentinel, general secretary of AAJEA, Anta Prasad alleged that ROP 2017 was also silent about the compliance of the report published in page no.157 para 1.20 by the 7th Assam Pay and Productivity Commission against the post of the judicial employees revised pay scale except only the post of Sheristadar of District Judge Court/Additiol District Judge Court/Munsiff Court, that too not reflected correctly.
On the other hand, president of AAJEA, Alhaj Abdul Hoque alleged that ROP.2017 without considering the previous recommendation reflected in page no 157 in para 1.20, again referred the matter to Judicial Department for examition and to have it submitted before the State fince department.
“It is unfortute on the part of the judicial employees that even after the lapse of couple of years, the matter is still under the examition of the judicial department despite the direction of the Supreme Court of India for the compliance of entire recommendations of Justice Shetty Commission within December 31, 2015,” Haque lamented.
Further, the association also expressed their dissatisfaction for unusual delay in publishing the Service Rule of the Sub-ordite Judicial Courts employee of the State despite the fact that the Gauhati High Court had already forwarded the Service Rule in the me and style ‘The Assam District Court Employees Service Rule 2014’ on July 13, 2015 to the State Government for its publication in the Assam Gazette but the same is yet to be published.
Moreover, the demand for the implementation of Graduate Pay Scale against the employment of the Graduate staff in the sub-ordite judiciary has not been given effect till date though it was perused several times by the association.
In an emergent meeting held recently in Guwahati, AAJEA urged upon the authorities concerned to implement their demands within two weeks or else the Association would have no other way out but to launch agitation to get their demands fulfilled.
