All India service officers are already enjoying the benefits of the Fifth Pay Commission, have also got the arrears from January 1, 2016, while C sand D grade employees of the Sikkim Government are desperately waiting for the report of the Commission to be put into effect, Hamro Sikkim Party spokesman Biraj Adhikari said in Gangtok on Wednesday.
Though the IAS and IPS were governed by Central Government rules, they were still Sikkim cadre officers and their salaries were disbursed by the State through its system. “This means that the process is already in place and the plea of the Sikkim Democratic Front that it will take some time to complete the process of implementation of the Fifth Pay Commission report is just an excuse not to give effect to the report,” Adhikari said.
