Civil servants not paid even in Dashain
Oct 15, 2018-
With the arrival of Dashain, civil servants from four government offices in Baitadi have yet to receive their salary, making it difficult for them to celebrate the festival.
The staffers at the Veterinary Hospital and Livestock Expert Centre, Agriculture Knowledge Centre, Division Forest Office and Soil Conservation Office have yet to receive their monthly payment.
Some employees have been unpaid for the past three months. “We are having difficulties to manage our Dashain expenses. I do not think we will get paid soon,” said Karna Bahadur Chand, an official of Agriculture Knowledge Centre. An official from the Comptroller’s Office said, “So far, we have not received the authority to sanction salary to the four offices under the provincial government.” (RSS)
