Share post:


The Regional Coordination Committee of the Central Government Employees & Workers (RCC/, N.E. Region, Shillong has protested against the “gross discrimination” made by the Union Govt in granting Special (duty) allowance at 25 percent only to the highly paid Central employees serving in the North-East.

In a telegram to the Union Minister of Finance the RCC has pointed out that all the Central Govt employees, whether having all India transfer liability or not, serving in the N.E. Region were exposed to the “same hazards and strains peculiar to the region and are therefore similarly placed as they serve in the region.”

The grant of special (duty) Allowance only to the highly-placed ones ignoring all other was a discrimination” in favour of the highly paid, it added.

The RCC has demanded extension of the Special (duty) allowance to all the Central employees in the region.

At a meeting held here recently, the RCC decided to submit a memorandum to the Govt. through the Governor in a “Mass Deputation” on January 10.
