Confederation of All Nagaland State Services Employees’ Association (CANSSEA) has urged the state chief minister to expedite the implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission. A representation addressed to state chief minister by CANSSEA president, Dr.K Solo; vice president, A.C Hazarika; joint secretary, Dr. IP Khala and joint treasurer, N.C Boruah lamented the apathetic and indifferent attitude to their memo of December 11, 2008 which had highlighted some recommendations of the 6th CPC’s recommendations on pay package and subsequent implementations. Asserting that 6th CPC’s as mulled by the NE states spoke volumes of actions taken, the signatories said Assam and Tripura had given a lead in appointing their own pay committee to bring parity with the central pay pattern while Mizoram was expected to act soon on receipt of the report of its “Fitment Committee” possibly by May 2009. CANSSEA also said the Arunachal Pradesh government had agreed implement 6th CPC’s scales from January 1, 2009, conceding further arrears for six months staggering suitably to three installments. In the case with Meghalaya, CANSSEA said the state had not adopted the 5th CPC’s scales and assumed that the state may not be keen to go for 6th CPC’s. While on the other hand, Manipur which is implementing the 5th CPC’s scales would logically also opt to the 6th CPC’s scales, it said. Stating that out of 28 states, 20 had adopted recommendations of the 5th CPC’s scales (inclusive of Nagaland), CANSSEA said “it can, therefore, logically be assumed, that these 20 states will adopt the 6th central pay commission’s recommendations as well.” Admitting that the state was not in a “comfortable” position financially to adopt the 6th CPC’s pay structures from January 1, 2006, CANSSEA said it would opt for staggering payment of arrears by determining suitable installments in this regard. The current rise in the prices of essential commodities that have skyrocketed has hit the middle class and low income category and therefore, the balancing act now lay in the implementation of the 6th CPC’s scales forthwith from January 1, 2006, it said. CANSSEA also expressed confidence that new pay scales would be adopted in the desired line before getting too late. Asserting that “Justice delayed is justice denied”, the signatories said any further normative approach by the authority, might assist the employees to pull up their socks and rally forces for a bigger configuration of action. In this regard, CANSSEA invited government’s intervention in larger interest of the employees in particular and public in general.
