Update on 20.01.10 : The National Council of the JCM which was scheduled to meet on 16th January, 2010 was postponed. The next date for the meeting has not been indicated. The Staff Side has received the draft minutes of the first Anomaly Committee meeting. The same is being finalized and is expected to be issued officially in a few days' time.

We regret the earlier information provided in this blog. That was not true. We sincerely apologize for the same.

National Anomaly Committee is scheduled to meet today and will discuss the remaining points which were left in the earlier meeting. We will closely watch the outcome of this very crucial meeting and try to update our viewers as soon as possible.

Forced on the backfoot by a growing discontent among 1.5 lakh state government employees, 40,000 pensioners and 1,800 college teachers, the Left Front government in Tripura has decided to seek a special sanction of funds.

The move aims to bring the payscales on a par with the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission and to implement the UGC-recommended pay allowances for college and university teachers in toto.

Finance minister Badal Chowdhury pressed for the special sanction of funds in a letter to Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee. The matter will come up for discussion in Mukherjee’s pre-budget meeting with finance ministers of the states.

Chowdhury stated that there should be no gap between the state employees’ pay and allowances and those of the central staff.

“We upgraded payscales and allowances of state employees and pensioners last year but have not been able to implement payscales and allowances on a par with the central employees. We brought to the notice of the 13th Finance Commission the requirement of funds for the purpose with detailed data but we are yet to know the nature of recommendations made by the finance commission,” Chowdhury said in the letter. He also sought Mukherjee’s intervention in improving the credit-deposit ratio of nationalised banks in Tripura.

The college teachers association has decided to grant the state government time till February 28 to implement the revised UGC payscales, failing which they have threatened an “all-out agitation”.

Did the NAC meet take place on 16th Jan 2010 as reported? What is the outcome related to pension anomalies arising out of the relativities between the past and present pensioners 0or pre-2006 and post-2006 pensioners? Did anything useful happen so that many new Court/ Cat/Military Tribunal acses cd be avoided and the pending Contempt issues cd be resolved?
