The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday cancelled 15 public holidays marking the birth or death anniversaries of eminent personalities.
The UP Govt employees would be given three assured career promotions at 10 years, 16 years and 26 years of service.
The state cabinet is scheduled to take up the interim report submitted by a committee on Seventh Pay Commission. The committee headed by retired bureaucrat GB Pattnaik had submitted its interim report to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on December 7.
The UP Govt employees strike is likely to cripple working of major departments like education, horticulture, health, public works, social welfare, food and civil supplies.
A two-judge bench of the Allahabad High Court, while hearing a public suit by the Bhrashtachar Mukti Morcha, said there were a number of questions surrounding Yadav’s appointment and that he was unfit to remain in the job.
