The Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Union and All Manipur Government Employees Organisation has urged the government to ensure the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission and extend all its benefits to all the state government employees by January 31.
Speaking to media persons at its office here today, JAC president Kaidem Mani said the legitimate 22-point charter of demands including the 7th Pay Commission was already submitted to Chief Minister N Biren during the last meeting on October 26, 2017.
The members had met N Biren regarding the 22-point charter of demands made by the employees. The CM requested the JAC to give three months’ time to complete the government technical procedures for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission in the state, Khaidem added
JAC secretary general, L Biken said the JAC representatives met Chief Secretary Rajani Ranjan Rashmi today at his office. The Chief Secretary maintained that about 85 percent of technical procedures are completed for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. Now, the matter for its implementation lies with the Chief Minister, he added.
The JAC leaders then appealed the government to introduce the matter in the coming assembly session. In the event of failure, the JAC threatened it will launch intense forms of agitation after consulting with the “stake holders”, Biken added.
The 22-point charter of demands include establishment of Manipur State Staff Selection Commission for Grade-III employees, Children Education Allowance, Hill area allowance for those posted in the hill districts, proper reservation in direct recruitment as well as promotion matters in respect to the physically challenged persons.
