Salary due barb at Dispur

Dhubri, June 17: The Sadou Asom Unnayan Pradhikaran Karmachari Oikya Mancho alleged that nearly 400 employees serving in the offices of the development authority across Assam have not got their salaries for over eight months now.

The forum alleged that the income of the authority has become very meagre after the amendment of the municipal board act, which curtailed its power and revenue generation areas, including collection from purchase and sale of land by issuing “no objection” and permission of building construction.

The 24 development authority offices were created under the Assam Town and Country Planning Act, 1959.

Forum president Imran Hussain Khan alleged that out of total 24 development authority offices functioning in the state, employees of most of these offices are either not getting salaries regularly and even if they are getting, they are not on a par with each other.
