The Tripura government will provide arrears and other allowances to employees after receiving funds from the Fifteenth Finance Commission, chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb said in a press release issued from his office.

A press release from the chief minister’s office said, “After receiving funds from the Fifteenth Finance Commission, the state government will fulfil all the promises made in the vision document — be it arrears and other allowance to employees or increase in social allowance up to Rs 2000.”

The press release said the previous government only used to deliver words for 25 years but the new government is implementing various projects for the welfare of all sections of people.

Deb said his government was working in all sectors, including sport.

Altogether 1,100 clubs were provided sports kits of Rs 8,500 each so that the younger generation remains involved in sport, he added.

He highlighted the achie-vements of Tripura players in various games and acknowledged that the state team had become champions in the recently concluded Under-17 Boys Football Tournament (National School Games).

“Athletics tracks have been constructed in Panisagar and Badarghat. Udaipur will also have an athletics track. The tennis court, which has been set up at the Dasharath Deb state sports complex, is the most beautiful tennis court in the Northeast,” he added.

The chief minister said the education sector was making equal progress in both urban and rural areas after his government came to power and the Mission 30-30 was playing an important role in this regard.
