On learning that numerous offices were making deductions from sources under the pretext of putting up extra work for preparation, persuasion of Initial Pay Statements (IPS) and arrear bills, the Confederation of all Nagaland state services employees’ association (CANSSEA) said arbitrary deductions should be stopped since dealing and billing assistants were paid for doing such duties.
A press note issued by CANSSEA president Dr. K. David Sema and general secretary Vekho Vero stated that as per press release on September 2 under the caption ‘The 6th ROP: A Retrospection’ that appeared in local dailies, the CANSSEA asked all DDOs/cashiers of state offices that no arbitrary deductions were to be made during the disbursement of pay arrears of the employees.
CANSSEA further observed that accountant general of Nagaland was not sincere enough to issue pay slips to officers in spite of having received the comprehensive order of finance department of Nagaland in connection with 6th ROP 2010 which was issued vide NO. FIN/ROP/VI-PC/2008 dated 10th August 2010 and that pay slips would be issued only on the later part of November 2010.
Stating that taking four months to prepare pay slips for issue was neither justified nor acceptable, CANSSEA has requested accountant general to attend the matter on priority. Meanwhile, annual conference of North East State Government Employees & Teachers United Front (NESGE&TUF) which is a regional organization under the All India State Government Employees’ Federation would be hosted by the CANSSEA on November 30 at Kohima.
