 Work in the offices of sub divisional magistrates and tehsil offices and other offices in Nakodar and Shahkot sub divisions and Nurmahal sub tehsil remained  paralyzed on Thursday following the Punjab State Ministerial (DC Office) Employees Union members indefinite  pen down strike entering third day

The members of the union said that they are observing an indefinite  pen-down strike..

They said that their demands include immediate transfer of arrears of various allowances into their accounts, extension of full pension benefits to those staff members who were recruited after 2004; complete implementation of the rules and proposals of the 6th Pay Commission. They are demanding revival of the allowances of the ministerial staff, release of the installments of dearness allowance  and rollback of the decision of the state government pertaining to giving only basic pay and no allowance to all fresh recruits for the first two years of their service.

It is pertinent to mention here that CaptAmrindar Singh  government, well before the Lok Sabha elections had promised to accept the entire demands of the employees immediately after lifting of the Mode Code of Conduct.  Even the Cabinet Sub Committee in its meeting with the employees organizations on May 27 had also assured to work out the solution for the problems of the employees but what to say to accepting the demands,  this committee has not bothered to hold a meeting. They said that the government has failed to keep its promise of accepting their demands for the fourth time .
