NC defers pay raise

Jun 20, 2014

NC-DefersPayRaise----The National Council decided its members will not accept the pay raise finalised by the National Assembly, at the moment.

“The National Council has decided to abide by our recommendations on the pay revision report and defer our pay revision until measures for expenditure rationalisation identified by the government are implemented and realised,” tweeted the Chairperson of the National Council, Dasho Dr. Sonam Kinga.

Earlier, the National Council had expressed serious reservations over the proposed Pay Revision Report of the government. They said the revision came at a wrong time even as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund hinted that the country’s economy was bad.

    Kudos NC members,
    At least you stuck by your words and showed those shameless MP(s) what is wrong, both ethically and morally. They are the hypocrites.

    Commendable action by the NC. I dont want to deprive anyone of what is due to them to discharge their functions properly, but the larger financial implications should be kept in mind. The country cannot afford such actions recommended by the pay revision committee at this stage.

    I hope all the MPs and Ministers of ruling government and opposition are reading this. Shame on you all.

    There is a rumor that the National Council was split on this matter. Some members are supporting to defer the pay to uphold the recommendations. Some members found that all required procedures to pass the Pay Revision Report was legally completed and don’t support the deferment. Moreover, National Assembly keeps on reiterating that the house has the complete authority to accept the recommendation of the National Council as per the law. What a pity, that two houses of the country are always on showoff in the public.

    It is good to know that NC is giving a principled response to the NA. Let us see what happens the the pay revision is rolled out in July by the Government.

      There is no comment for the DA and Salary revision but one important thing is regarding mileage rate. Mileage rate should be equally same to every one irrespective of their grades n positions. so it would be fair if the mileage rate should be kept same to everybody. Because there is no difference in the rate of petrol.

    Pay commission and the new Government (PDP) are not doing good job because the civil servants are not happy with pay revision, I also a PDP supporter but now no trust with the PDP Govt
