They added that the clerical cadre is the backbone of the state administration and are working from dawn to dusk with full integrity and dedication and are performing multiple task and are under mental and physical stress as well as to remain at the disposal of the officers not only office hours, but beyond working hours. Unfortunately, our contribution is always ignored and genuine issues of clerical cadre have always been sidelined and clerical cadre has been treated as bonded labourers and given step motherly treatment. They alleged that Government was trying to gag the voice of clerical cadre employees who were projecting their long pending demand in a democratic manner since 2008. They also rejected the decision of government for farming another committee. While speaking on the
Occasion, the leaders warns the State Government to shun the path of confrontation and issue orders for removal of Pay Anomolies of 5th Pay Commission and once again appealed the State Govt. to issue orders for removal of pay anomalies ( 5th Pay Commission) while granting the pay scale of Rs. 4000-6000 to Junior Assistant, Rs.4500-7000 to Senior Assistant, and Rs 5500-9000 to Head Assistant.
