Patna: Functioning of the state government`s
offices across Bihar was paralysed with around three lakh
non-gazetted employees under the banner of their two
federations proceeding on an indefinite strike from today 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 strike was total.
They claimed that most of the employees under the two
federations had confirmed their participation in the strike
beginning today and work at all the state government offices,
excepting the state secretariat, remained crippled.
Official sources said the state government was keen on
holding talks with the leaders of the striking federations to
seek withdrawal of the stir.
"But the functioning of the offices is reported to be by
and large normal", they said.
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.
