Deb talked about the steps taken by the BJP-led government to promote the interest of employees during the past 15 months and said that the families of employees who died before retirement would get full salaries for the remaining service period until 60 years as per the recommendation of 7th Pay Commission.
While addressing the 2nd Triennial Conference of the Tripura Rajya Karmachari Sangh, a pro-BJP organisation of government employees, Deb pointed out the benefits that the state government employees would get post-implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendation.
“Home Guards had been getting Rs 6,000 per month, the BJP government increased their wages to Rs 18,000 per month. The gratuity amount has been increased to Rs 10 lakhs from Rs 4 lakhs. Insurance limit of the linemen of the power departments increased to Rs 10 lakh from Rs 2 lakhs,” said Deb.
But the CM also warned that if the employees are found to be insincere and incompetent, they would be forced to go on retirement. However, they will be provided financial benefits they are eligible for.
“The state government would provide all the financial benefit to the employees and the government would also extract full works from the employees. For the interest of the government and the people, all the employees have to complete their task with full responsibility. After every three months, the performances of officials and employees from the Chief Secretary to a peon would be reviewed and accordingly the government would take action,” CM Biplab Deb said.
