Pay commission proposals fraud on staff: Punjab traders

Bathinda, July 4

The Punjab Pradesh Beopar Mandal has criticised the Congress government for causing “colossal damage” to employees, alleging that whatever emoluments it had decided to give to employees as per the sixth pay commission report were actually part of a “big fraud”.

Beopar mandal senior vice-president Amarjit Mehta said the state government had been manipulating figures to project that employees had been given their due emoluments. He said the Congress Government had reduced the non-practicing allowance to medical practitioners, house rent allowance and rural allowance apart from denying the payment of DA to them. He said the hike given to employees was also negligible. — TNS
