CM: Pay panel implementation likely before code of conduct

Rules out paying November salary to government servants in cash

PANJIM: A day after government employees threatened to march to the Secretariat demanding a rise in pay scale, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Wednesday said that efforts are on to implement the 7th pay commission recommendations from December, before the election code of conduct for the 2017 Assembly polls comes into force.

The Chief Minister also ruled out paying government employees the November salary in cash as demanded by the association.
“We have completed all the procedures for implementation of recommendations of pay commission. The file will be placed during the coming or next week’s cabinet meeting for approval. The notification will be out post the cabinet nod,” Parsekar said.
“Goa will be going to the polls soon and the question of hurting or upsetting any section of society does not arise. We have assured to implement it and we will do it,” he added.
“Before the election code of conduct comes into force, the notification will be out. There is no need to be panic or agitate,” Parsekar said reacting to the day-long protest call given by the Goa Government employees Association (GGEA).
