Salary payment delayed due to technical glitches, says Nagaland School Education department
Dimapur, May 12 (EMN): The Principal Director of School Education, Shanavas C, has informed the employees of the department that following the introduction of the Personal Information Management System (PIMS)/ ePay Bill system, the Directorate has been updating required information for timely release of salaries.
Payment of salaries and wages was supposed to be done via ePay Bill system from November last year but was relaxed till the remuneration of Feb 2022 (already paid) due to requirement of documents, said an update from the principal director.
The department clarified that the directorate staff have been working overtime in co-ordination with other departments to facilitate timely release of salaries as the ePay Bill system was rolled in March this year but salaries have to be withheld due to glitches in pay items like SCRLA in the ’93 ROP and the inability to update the records and documents in connection with the ban of appointment on Adhoc/ Contract, “which have been compiled and forwarded to the Govt. and awaited for decision”.
“Also the last 6 (six) SDEO establishments out of the 11 (eleven) newly created establishments, who had been bifurcated from their parent establishments could not be updated in the PIMS for want of SGV code from the NSDL, Mumbai, which will be completed once the code is received and their salaries will be released accordingly,” read the update, adding that uploading of details has been delayed in areas like Kiphire, Tuensang and Mon due to slow internet.
‘For the other regular employees, with the help of the P&AR Department, technical glitches are being cleared and for those already cleared and salary is being released on fast track mode,’ it said.
“In view of the above, the Department would like to reiterate that the Govt. is trying to bring in transparency in disbursement of salaries and a system where funds are monitored properly. And since, the system is in its initial stage, all the employees are hereby requested to bear with the delays as, once the problems is resolved, the system is put in place and information required are updated, all such delays will be curbed,” it added.
