TP staff still waiting for their pay

MANGALORE : A complaint is heard of late that the Taluk Panchayat staff in Mangalore are still waiting for their salary for the month of May. It is believed that the failure of the authorities to send the bill towards the staff salary to the treasury, was the reason for this delay.

Generally, once the bill is sent at the end of a month, the salary is disbursed in the first week of the forthcoming month, but that has not been the case.

One of the staff even explained his plight and said it has become difficult to make both ends due to increased expenses as this was even the school reopening month.

An appeal has also been made to the Taluk Panchayat Chief Executive Officer to release the salary at the earliest. Though instructions have been issued, the staff have to very well wait for a few more days to get their salaries.
