Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 19: J&K's Finance Ministry seems uninterested in addressing the pay anomaly demands of clerical cadre of state employees, as the committee constituted in this regard continues to remain in a fix and the government has, as per sources, not reached a conclusion till date.
As per reports, the tussle between government and the employees' unions is going to intensify in the future as the authorities continue to keep the pay anomaly demands in limbo.
Sources within the employees' unions divulged that the government workers would want removal of the pay anomalies ahead of the implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations that the government has announced for April 2018.
Pursuant to the implementation of the central pay commission, the Pay Anomaly Committee was constituted vide government order number 1387-GAD of 2009, dated 08-10-2009. Based on the recommendations of the committee, orders were issued (No. 296-F of 2010, dated 21-12-2010) for the removal of pay anomaly of the clerical cadre, sanctioning therein grant of financial incentive equal to two increments at the time of passing of the secretariat assistants examination conducted by PSC either at the level of junior assistants or senior assistants on prospective and non-compounded basis, by corresponding deletion of such provisions which were earlier in vogue.
Sources said that pursu
Chances look bleak
There are meagre chances that any decision related to the removal of the pay anomaly in the clerical grade shall be taken in near future. There is lot of disparity, which is making the task of the Finance department much more rigorous and nearly impossible.
nt to the agreement between the high powered group of the government and the leaders of unions and associations of the employees on September 15, 2011, the then government revived the pay anomaly committee vide order number 67-GAD of 2012, dated 16-01-2012 to once again look into the pay anomalies and disparities with respect to clerical and other categories and cadres. The committee at that time made certain recommendations.
However, what acted as a major spoilsport, as per sources, was the lack of consensus among the members regarding the recommendation. Reports informed that later in compliance to court order in SWP No 3058/2015 and CMP No. 1/2015 titled Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, All Departments Clerical Staff Association and Ors v/s State, a committee was constituted by the government and Chief Secretary of the state was made the chairman of the committee to look into the recommendations of the Pay anomaly committee.
As per sources, though the committee has met on several occasions, the consensus on settling the demands of clerks continues to remain a dream. "There are meagre chances that any decision related to the removal of the pay anomaly in the clerical grade shall be taken in near future. There is lot of disparity, which is making the task of the Finance department much more rigorous and nearly impossible," said an official in the Finance department, wishing not to be named.
