Class-IV employees in valley hospitals without salary


Srinagar, Feb 12: Over 150 Class-IV employees in the Valley hospitals are without salaries as government has failed to contribute its 10 percent share for the New Pension Scheme started in 2010.  
 The paramedical and nursing staff of Government Medical College Associated Hospitals alleged that their pay had not been released for 9 and 4 months respectively due to 'lack of funds with the accounts department.
 Officials pleading anonymity told Greater Kashmir the inadequate funds for the NPS scheme had hampered the process. “The government hasn’t made the funds available for the deposition its 10 % share for contributory provident fund of the employees,” they said.
 Under the scheme the employees have to make a contribution of 10 percent of his basic pay plus Dearness Allowance and NPA, wherever applicable, and the same would be deducted from his salary every month. The government has to make an equal matching contribution.
 “But inadequate funds has stopped their salaries,” the officials said.
 They said the accounts section of the associated hospitals had enough funds available for salary of the employees. “But it cannot be drawn as treasury receipt of NPS contribution from the government has to be affixed with the pay receipt,” they added.
 The employees including junior grade nurses, junior pharmacists, X-ray technicians laboratory technicians, nursing orderlies and theater assistants had sent joint representations to higher officials many times. But, they said, officials turned deaf ears to our pleas.
 “Since my appointment in April 2010 after the NPS scheme was introduced, I received only one month salary that literally pushed me to wall,” said a junior grade nurse in one of the associated hospitals.
