Non-gazetted employees' strike in Bihar

About three lakh non-gazetted employees were on strike to press for removal of alleged discrepancies in implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission report. Bihar State Non-Gazetted Employees Federation (BSNGEF-Gope Group) General Secretary Rambali Prasad and Bihar State Non-Gazetted Employees Federation (BSNGEF) president Manjar Kumar Das claimed that the functioning of the offices in Bihar was paralysed.

Meanwhile, the state government held a meeting with the two leaders today in a bid to find out a solution. State Finance secretary Mihir Kumar Singh met the striking leaders and assured them of apprising the government of their stand, official sources said. Most of the employees under the two federations had confirmed their participation in the strike that began yesterday.

Prasad said the two federations launched the stir following alleged failure of the state government to address anomalies in the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission scale in Bihar.
