Work was paralysed in government offices across Jammu on Wednesday due to a strike by employees to demand immediate implementation of sixth pay commission recommendations.
Government employees, including those in civil secretariat, did not attend work on Wednesday in response to the strike called by Jammu and Kashmir Employees Joint Action Committee (JKEJAC), official sources said.
The demands of the committee include enhancement of retirement age from 58 to 60, regularisation of daily wagers, enhancement of daily rate and removal of pay anomalies.
JKEJAC president Abdul Qayoom Wani said the employees were forced to go on strike due to government's failure to implement the sixth pay panel recommendations.
The committee has also organised a rally in the city on Wednesday to pressurise the government to accept their demands.
The coordination committee of Leh and Kargil districts employees association have also supported the strike, said association secretary Gulzar Hussain.
