 NAKODAR/SHAHKOT/NURMAHAL   Work in the offices of sub divisional magistrates and tehsil offices and other offices in Nakodar and Shahkot sub divisions and Nurmahal sub tehsil was paralysed on Friday following the Punjab State Ministerial (DC Office) Employees Union members going on a pen down strike.

Nakodar unit leader Satindar Singh said that they are observing one day pen-down strike.

He said that the state government has failed to implement its promise of accepting employees’ demands hence this one day strike.

He 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 instalments 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.
