ISLAMABAD Federal government employees are perturbed over the unnecessary delays on part of the Pay and Pension Commission in formulating recommendations that the government had promised to implement w.e.f January 1, 2010. After the government has given yet another six months to the Commission, as it had sought, All Pakistan Secretariat Employees Coordination Council held a meeting here on Wednesday to make future strategy in case the commission delays further in formulating its recommendations. According to the President of the Council Chaudhry Mukhtar Ahmed, the Secretariat Staff was desperate as successive governments constituted about nine Pay and Pension Commissions but no government implemented their recommendations. The employees regretted that the incumbent government had been using the same delaying tactics to avoid the implementation of the commissions recommendations. The government had announced to constitute the commission two years before and on the recommendations of the commission the government had to increase salaries of the employees from January 2010. The employees have been pinning high hopes on the democratic government that it would accept the longstanding demands of employees but regarding this practically nothing has been done yet to implement the decision and instead on January 1 the Finance Division has convened 8th meeting of Pay and Pension Commission-2009 and the representatives of APSECC have also been asked to attend it. The salaries of armed forces and police have been increased but the promises of the governments to them always remained unfulfilled. They were of the view that the present pay scales of the civil employees are considered grossly incommensurate with their qualifications and experience and there is a great disparity between the employees of different departments as well they remarked. The employees have decided to hold press conferences in major cities of the country including Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Karachi, Quetta, and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on December 30 to press for their demands.
