Financial Crisis:First time in the history of Kerala, the salaries of government employees have been stopped

Thiruvananthapuram: For the first time in the history of Kerala, the salaries of government employees have been stopped. Salaries of government employees reach their bank accounts on the first day of every month. However, the salaries of the government employees did not reach the accounts yesterday, March 1. The government’s constant refrain was the financial crisis, which could not pay salaries and pensions.

However, for the first time in its history, the state government also showed vigilance to avoid the embarrassment of being a government that could not even pay salaries properly. Although the money did not reach the employee’s accounts, a message came to the phones that the salary had arrived. Officials say that the reason for the money not reaching the accounts was a technical glitch.

A protest march will be held this morning under the leadership of the Secretariat Action Council to protest against the withholding of salaries. The pension of 6 lakh pensioners has also been stopped. 7th installment of D.A. is due. DA dues are 22 percent. The employees who have gone on strike demanding DA dues are in a situation where they need to get their salary at least correctly.

Passing of bills has been stopped in the past due to treasury crisis. But none of it was on paydays. So the pay freeze was out of the question. However, yesterday, the government froze the treasury salary accounts of the employees as the treasury ran out of money to pay salaries and pensions.

But in the meantime, there is no shortage of government waste. 33 lakhs have been earmarked for the cost of the Chief Minister’s face-to-face meeting with farmers in Alappuzha today. The meet-and-greets of the farmers are organized at Camelot, a luxury hotel in Alappuzha. About 2000 crore rupees are due to the farmers.

A face-to-face meeting in a luxury hotel without giving anything away. Many wastes like this have plagued the government’s financial management. The state government is in the situation of KSRTC. If you go this way, don’t be surprised if the salary is twice a month like in KSRTC.
