Manipur Govt decided to implement pay hike w e f April this year. No break through in J and K.

Like in other States of the country, the State Cabinet has today[6/01/10] recommended extension of the 6th Central Pay Commission to the employees of the Government of Manipur with effect from April. SPF spokesperson N Biren informed that in view of extension of 6th Central Pay Commission to the Government employees in other parts of the country with effect from next fiscal year, 2010-2011, the Cabinet recommended extension of the same benefit to the Government employees of the State starting from April. It may be noted here that the State Government proposed to the 13th Finance Commission for extending the benefit of the 6th Central Pay Commission to its employees. The proposal, however, does not have the amount for payment of arrears. Although the report of the 13th Finance Commission has already been submitted to the President of India, it is to be finalised only after the President gives her assent. So far the report is yet to be finalised. Though payment of arrears had not been proposed o the 13th Finance Commission, the SPF spokesman assured that the State Government would be lobbying in this regard. Biren further informed that the meeting of the State Cabinet presided over by Chief Minister also recommended extension of assistance to the students of Sainik School, Imphal with regard to their tuition fee and dietary. Accordingly, the Government would be providing cent percent financial assistance to the students who secured 90 percent and above marks in the entrance and annual examinations of the school. The Government would also be extending financial aid upto 70 percent on the tuition fee and upto 50 percent on the dietary of the General category students who secured 80 to 89.9 percent mark and SC/ST students who secured 75 to 84.9 percent mark. General category students who secured 65 to 79.9 percent mark and SC/ST students who secured 60 to 74.9 percent marks would also avail financial aid upto 60 percent on their tuition fee and upto 50 percent on dietary. Moreover, Govt would also provide financial assistance upto 50 percent on tuition fee and another 50 percent on their dietary respectively to general students who secured 55 to 64.9 percent mark and SC/ST students who secured 50 to 59.9 percent mark.

Jammu and Kashmir

With the government showing no signs of flexibility towards the demand of sixth pay commission, around four lakh employees in Jammu and Kashmir are all set to intensify the struggle for accomplishing their demands.
The employees’ Joint Consultative Committee, spearheading the agitation, convened a high level meeting of its leaders on Wednesday to discuss the further course of the agitation.
Though it remained inconclusive, the leaders have consensually decided to give government a tough time in the coming days.
The member JCC and President Employees Joint Action Committee (K), Khursheed Alam told Greater Kashmir that they have been left with no option but to intensify the strike.
“Even after government promised that it would address our demand in October 2009 but it has not paid any heed towards us till date. We are going to intensify the struggle to meet our demands now,” Alam said.
“We went for strike on December 23 and 30, 2009 just to draw the attention of government. But government remained silent without showing any courtesy towards the suffering employees. Now we have decided to go to the extreme,” he said.
Khursheed said they have got suggestions for an intensified agitation from all leaders but the final decision about its modus operandi would be finalized tomorrow.
“We discussed all options we have up our sleeves. But we will meet again tomorrow,” he said.
The spokesperson of JCC Farooq Ahmad Trali said, “January will be hectic for government as well as for employees. Probably we will go for indefinite strike.” He said the employees of the Kashmir would be called to Jammu for secretariat gherao as a step towards intensifying the struggle.
“The secretariat employees union did not attend the meeting today, so they were meeting tomorrow again,” he said, adding that, “We will give a press conference tomorrow.”
Around four lakh employees are up in arms against the state for “disregard” to their demands. They are seeking implementation of the agreement reached out between them on August 18. The government, in the agreement, had agreed to accept the demands of the employees and also release their arrears under sixth pay commission by October end.
