Imphal, March 23, 2022 (DIPR): Chief Minister Shri N. Biren Singh appealed the government employees of the State to suspend their cease work strike demanding the implantation of 7th Pay Commission and resume their service for smooth functioning of administration from Monday i.e. 26-03-2018. This was stated by him during a press conference held at Chief Minister’s Cabinet Hall today.

Speaking to the media persons, Chief Minister mentioned that this is not the right time for agitation and cease work strike as it would affect the financial transactions in the end of the financial year which would directly or indirectly affect the people of the State. Chief Minister further appealed the people of the State to support the earnest request of the government for the welfare of the State. He said that the government would invite and hold talks the associations of the government employees after the financial year.

Mentioning that the government formed Committees for the proper implementation of the 7th pay to the employees of the State government, he said that the government does not have any intention to refuse the implementation of the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission to its employees. He said that the government has already agreed in principle with the Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Unions' Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Govt Employees' Organisation (AMGEO) and representatives of Manipur Government Services Federation for the implementation of 7th Pay Commission in the previous meetings. The government has discussed the matter with these employees associations on various occasions at the level of Chief Secretary and Chief Minister.

Chief Minister also mentioned that out of the eight states of the NorthEast India, only Assam has implemented the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission but on its State terms/rules. He said that there are 98,845 regular posts and 45,523 pensioners/family pensioners in the State as on 15-05-2017. If the government implements the 7th Pay Commission, then an additional financial expenditure of around Rs 1400 crores per year would be required for pay and pension including Grant-in-Aid bodies, he added.

Minister for Agriculture Shri V. Hangkanlian, Minister for Tribal and Hill Areas Development Shri N. Kayasii, Minister for CAF&PD Shri Karam Shyam, Minsiter for Education Shri Th. Radheshyam, Chief Secretary Shri R.R Rashmi and others were present during the press conference. (DIPR)
