Pressure on Centre and State for 7th pay commission
Various employees organisations came under one platform in the name of `Central, State Employees Joint Agitation Committee’ to pressurize both the governments to address the problems of the employees, particularly by implementing seventh Pay Commission at earliest.
We organised a meeting of Central and State Employees Unions to air our demand of early implementation of seventh pay commission as well as to execute several of our other demands like reviving old pension scheme, increasing tax relaxation limit to Rs 5 lakh, formulating National Salary Policy, opening of recruitment under Group `D’, stopping Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), to give relief during inflation, to implement wage revision for State Emloyees from January 14 onwards, and also to given benefit of sixth pay commission to all the local bodies, corporations, development authorities etc”, disclosed JP Singh, who is general secretary of Income Tax Employees Confederation and had joined the agitation with other Employees Unions of the Central as well as State government.
JP Singh said that the joint federation of state employees would fighttogether to force the state government to facilitate sixth pay commission to all the employees working in Corporations or any other undertaking of the government. He said that they would also oppose outsourcing of work particularly as it also exposed threat of revealing confidential records of the Department and later to fix the responsibility of the person.
