No Date Yet For CSC Meeting
Jammu, May 7: With employees’ organizations of the state all set for strike on May 8 and 9, the Cabinet sub-committee looking into their demands remained indecisive on its scheduled meeting.
Official sources said that though the sub-committee headed by Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather is scheduled to meet in the summer capital of the state to discuss the recommendation of a high-level panel regarding the retirement age enhancement, no dates for holding the meet has been fixed even as the government employees head for a major showdown.
The state government had constituted an official panel last year, after an agreement with the employees’ unions, under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Madhav Lal to look into various demands of the agitating employees. The panel has submitted its recommendations to the sub-committee.
Minister for PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control, Taj Mohi-Ud-Din, who is also a member of the sub-committee, said that till date no date has been finalized for the meeting.
“We have not been asked to hold the meeting by the government. We will sit and deliberate only when asked,” the minister said.
The enhancement in the retirement age is one of the key demands of JCC, which had negotiated with the government on number of issues, including release of arrears on account of implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission report, removal of pay anomalies, conversion of the cost of living allowance (COLA) into dearness allowance (DA) and regularization of daily wagers.
