Monday, 05 February 2024 | PNS | DEHRADUN

Panchayati Raj minister Satpal Maharaj has stated that the duration in which the Panchayati Raj department personnel were on strike will be included in their accrued holidays. The Panchayati Raj department personnel had gone on a 12-day strike from January 17 to 28 last year against the functional merger of village Panchayat development officer and village development officer. The minister said that this period of strike will be included in the accrued holidays of the personnel. With this decision, the personnel will get the benefit of salary during the strike period, Maharaj said.

The minister said that he had approved the demand of the department personnel to include their strike period in the accrued leaves. This will enable the redressal of their service related cases and they will be paid the salary deducted for the duration of their strike. Maharaj said that the State government under chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has always stood with the employees, adding that the government will always take care of their interests. He further said that the Panchayat personnel should also work harder and with honesty to further strengthen the Panchayats and make them self-reliant.
