Financial transactions of the Manipur government remain affected by the ongoing cease-work strike of the employees which completed its 47th day on Wednesday. The LOC funds allocated at each department of the Manipur government released to each department by the state finance department for the current financial year 2009-10 expired on February 28 without utilization due to the strike of the employees. With a view to over come the difficulties by the departments incurring the LOC funds, Manipur government extended the validity period of all LOC issued by the Finance Department for the current financial year. Employees of almost all the departments including some essential services under the Manipur government under the aegis of Joint Action Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Union Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Government Employees Organisation (AMGEO) have been on strike since January 16 last. With the employees in healthcare services joining the strike, the services in the government run hospitals, PHCs, CHCs have been paralyzed for the past week. The striking JAC pressed the state government to fulfill the demand of the employees in toto payment of sixth revised pay bands effective from January 2006. Mention may be made that the 13th Finance Commission fixed a financial award of Manipur in the next five year plan 2010-15 at Rs 12,000 crore against the state’s proposal of Rs 21,000 crore. The JAC said that even though the award of the 13th Finance Commission cut down proposed grant in-aid funds from some sectors like the disaster relief, improving of outcomes, management of road and bridge, environmental related grant, elementary education and local bodies and performance incentives, grant in-aid for the payment of salaries, pension and relief of the employees under non-plan grant in-aid was awarded as proposed by the government. The 12th Finance Commission had also given enough grant in-aid in the two same sectors, Rs 4,391.98 crore and Rs 2,221.44 crore respectively, he added.
