Kerala Guv signs New Ordinance on Employees Salary Cut

Kerala Salary Cut

Thiruvananthapuram| Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan has signed the new Ordinance, ‘Disaster and Public Emergency Special Provisions Act’, said State Finance Minister Thomas Issac.

The Pinarayi government had last month decided to deduct six-day salary of all its employees for the next five months to cope up with the COVID-19 crisis in the state. This move was opposed by pro-opposition staff unions as they approached the Kerala High Court, which ordered to stay it.

The stay led the Vijayan government to bring a news Ordinance, which was sent to the Governor for his signature.

As per the reports, Governor has signed it and now all state government employees will get their salary for the month of April, starting from May 4.

“It was very unfortunate that a lot of muck had to be dealt with on this issue. We do not see this any victory, instead we are very considerate to our employees and all this happened because some failed to see what we were doing. We will never ever be against our employees. This is only deferment and we will return it,” Issac added.
