Bihar Administrative Service Association (BASA) has taken exception to the payment of less amount of Rs. 11,000 per month to officers of the premier service cadre branding it against the tenets of natural justice.
BASA president Suresh Kumar Sharma and general secretary Sushil Kumar on Sunday said this was due to the issuance of wrong pay slips following an erroneous explanation of the finance department through its resolution. "The state government should immediately put an end to this," they added.
According to BASA leaders, officers of the 47th to 48th-52nd batch had joined the General Administration Department (GAD) after October 1, 2009.
In the past they were all issued pay slips as per pay band two with grade pay of Rs. 5,400. Now, these officers were being issued fresh pay slips by adding the pay band two basic scale of Rs. 9,300 with grade pay of Rs. 5,400, which was against the provisions of the government resolution, the BASA office-bearers said.
They appealed to deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi and principal secretary of finance department to stop adopting wrong procedure for issuance of pay slips and immediately remove the discrepancies.
