If everything falls in right place, the employees of Assam Government would enjoy new pay structures by January next year, said Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

The Pay Commission is scheduled to submit its report before the government on November 18 and the government plans to implement new pay scales for the employees by January itself, he said at a press conference here on Monday.

Sarma, who heads the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) was on a whirlwind election campaign for byelections to Barjala Assembly constituency in West district.

Referring to the Marxist Government’s deprivation of the State Government employees in Tripura, Sarma said the BJP Government has completed only few months in Assam. “We have already declared 125 per cent DA to the State Government employees despite huge financial burden. If BJP-led Government could give such amount of DA why Tripura Govt is depriving its employees”, he asked.
