Employees seek implementation of Shetty Comm recommendations
Strike in sub-ordinate courts
Srinagar, Apr 5: Work in all sub-ordinate courts across the state came to a grinding halt Monday against the non-implementation of recommendations of the Shetty Commission.
The Judicial Employees Welfare Association, spearheading the agitation for implementation of recommendations, has given the strike call for April 5 and 6. The protesting employees today assembled in the Saddar Court premises here and raised slogans against government’s silence over redressal of their demands.
The general secretary of the JEWA, Muhammad Akbar Mir said, “In September 2009, the Supreme Court asked the state High Court to direct the government to implement the Shetty Commission recommendations in a period of one year. However, for past seven months we are apprising the government about our demands but to no avail.” He said the High Court had written to the government in February to implement the recommendations but it is silent over the issue. “Instead, the state government filed an affidavit in Supreme Court that it is not bound to implement the recommendations of Shetty Commission as J&K is governed by its own constitution,” he added.
If state government implemented the recommendations of the same commission for the Judges of the state from 1996, why is it denying the same to us, he asked.
He lamented over the government’s ‘non-seriousness’ towards upgrading the staff of the eight newly created District and Sessions Courts in the state.
JEWA prayed that the High Court should declare the transfer policy of the judicial employees to avoid any confusion in the transfers made. Akbar said the Association strongly supports all other employees’ associations who were on strike for implementation of recommendations of sixth pay commission.
