As per the estimate of the finance department, an estimated 3500 government employees of different grade have retired during 2008 and 2010 and the state has to shell out around `99 crore for the payment of one time gratuity, commutation and pension for one year.
Neiphiu Rio who also holds the finance portfolio stated this in a written reply to an un-starred question during the one-day winter session of NLA on Thursday. He informed that number of government servants attaining superannuation was maintained by the respective departments and not centrally in the P&AR department. Rio, however, stated that based on rough estimate jointly made by the finance and P&AR departments, approximately 3500 employees would have retired during the period.
He stated that the release of pension benefits was an ongoing process and that the state government has not restrained any admissible pension payments. The chief minister stated that all departments have been advised to settle pension cases expeditiously.
Further, Rio stated that steps have been taken to fill up vacant posts either by promotions, recruitment through NPSC or selection board. A common recruitment examination was also conducted through NPSC for the posts of LDA-cum Computer Assistants for the Directorate and District posts with the interviews held by respective departments/district selection boards, he stated.
However, the chief minister stated that the declaration of final results was awaiting clearance of the High Court due to a case filed by the Chakhesang Public Organization in connection with job reservation.
