CoSAAP apprises CS of partial implementation 7th CPC recommendations

ITANAGAR, Feb 21: The Confederation of Service Associations of Arunachal Pradesh (CoSAAP), led by its president Pate Marik, called on Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar on 19 February and apprised him of the partial implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s (CPC) December 2016 recommendations.
“Except pay scale, tough location allowance and travelling allowance, the major components of the 7th CPC recommended allowances have not been granted to our state government employees,” the CoSAAP said.
It said house rent allowance, transport allowance, children’s education allowance, non-practicing allowance (for doctors) and nursing allowance (for nurses) are some of the important allowances “which are due to the state government employees as per the 7th CPC recommendations.”
Informing in a release that “the CS assured to look into the genuine entitlements of employees after the current financial year,” the CoSAAP urged the government employees to work with dedication for the overall development of the state.
“The CS said that new rules/guidelines shall be made in regards to transfer and posting of officers and officials in the state from next fiscal year to improve the work culture and make conducive atmosphere in every office/department,” it said.
It was the first meeting of the CoSAAP with the CS after his joining office in July last year.
Meanwhile, the confederation strongly condemned the Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board scam, saying it “has shocked everyone and shattered the dreams and aspirations of thousand unemployed educated youth of the state.”
Commending the prompt action taken by the government, the CoSAAP said no one involved in such “immoral acts” should be spared.
