Guwahati: BJP's dreams of "Acche Din" in Tripura is still a long way to go in the process of fulfilling the dreams of the common men as Tripura employees, pensioners are still in a state of helplessness. Tripura which has already made itself a Party of Mass-cheating JUMLA Party is far away from "Acche Din dreams. With a major setback for TET qualified teachers and teaching job aspirants, a calculation has revealed that existing teachers will get hardly Rs.675 more than they are getting now, whereas the new employees who will be recruited under New-Pension-Policy will get more Rs.1789 less than the existing teachers under Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb led so-called 7th Pay Commission
In may be noted that Tripura has four pay bands. BJP in its promise-documents on 7th Pay commission had tabled the difference between state, central pay scales but when the state government employees were hoping Central Pay scale in future and had voted for BJP, the reality turned harsh especially for fixed employees as well as future employees.
As per reports, before election BJP mocked at "Fixed Scale" salaries of the teachers but now the new teachers not only will be appointed on fixed basis but will also get lesser salary than the existing teachers' salaries. On the other hand, in Pay Band 2 (Group-C) central Pay Band 1 starts from Rs.5200 whereas in Tripura it was Rs.5,700. So with 2.57 if we count it should be Rs.19789 but now it has been downed.
It needs to be mentioned here that these new TET qualified teachers will not get 2.57 but 2.34 factor(only 0.9-factor hike). They will not only lose provident fund but will also get Rs. 1789 less than the existing teachers.
Moreover, earlier it was promised that Rs.22,236 will be increased but now Rs.1789 has been decreased before appointing the new teachers.
It may be noted that the 14 No. promise in Vision document under LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT said that the government will remove job-related uncertainties from the minds of the teachers working under SSA and RMSA etc.
As per reports, it may also be added that 19.68% increased during the reign of CPI-M but their salaries will now be increased by only 14.2% but that will also differ for various employees.
