Ahead of Di­wali, Haryana govt staffers face salary de­lays

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Punjab/Haryana -

: Haryana govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to dis­trib­ute salaries to its em­ploy­ees only af­ter they up­load their de­tails on a hu­man re­source por­tal could not have come at a worse time for those whose Di­wali cel­e­bra­tions are at stake sans Septem­ber pay.

Barely a week left for the fes­ti­val, thou­sands of em­ploy­ees across the state who failed to up­load their de­tails on the Hu­man Re­source Man­age­ment Sys­tem (HRMS) due to tech­ni­cal snags on the por­tal and poor in­fra­struc­ture in govern­ment schools and of­fices are yet to re­ceive their salaries.

The Haryana govern­ment had made it manda­tory for em­ploy­ees work­ing in de­part­ments of ed­u­ca­tion, po­lice, ju­di­cial and six di­vi­sions to up­load de­tails on the por­tal by Septem­ber 30.

The move is likely to af­fect em­ploy­ees of all de­part­ments, es­pe­cially ed­u­ca­tion, which has max­i­mum strength and slug­gish in­fra­struc­ture.

Fac­ing back­lash, the govern­ment had re­cently de­cided to re­lax man­date for this month, but em­ploy­ees said it will take a cou­ple of more days be­fore they get their salaries. “Due to re­cent trans­fer of teach­ing staff, de­tails

An­other school head in Ro­htak, Saroj Devi, claimed that teach­ers in her school have be­come anx­ious re­gard­ing Di­wali cel­e­bra­tions. “We tried up­load­ing their de­tails. But the server is so slow that it takes an hour to fill de­tails, which can be done within five min­utes,” she said.
