Civil servants deprived of salary even in Dashain

Civil servants based at various government offices in Baitadi have not received their salary, thus depriving them of celebrating the Dashain festival.

Since the formation of the provincial government, employees of some offices have not been paid for the past three months.

Not being paid on the eve of Dashain has become a great problem for us, says acting chief of Agriculture Knowledge Centre Baitadi Karna Bahadur Chand. The Center falls under the authority of the Ministry of Land Management, Agriculture and Cooperatives.

Likewise, the staffers at the Veterinary Hospital and the Livestock Expert Center in Patan Baitadi also have not received their salary. “We have now lost hope of getting paid before Dashain,” said technician at the office Bisan Bista. The Division Forest Office and the then Soil Conservation Office have also not provided salary to its employees.

“So far, we have not received the authority to sanction salary amount to the four offices under the provincial government,” assistant information officer at the Comptroller’s Office said.
