Gujarat government Latest important news Google AdSense news Fix pay case details

An informal group of fixed-wage employees of Gujarat — Team Fix Pay, which is coordinating the legal fight in the Supreme Court against the Gujarat government’s controversial policy of employing people on fixed wage for five years before regularising them — has decided to protest on February 16 when the policy will enter into 14th year.

The group has decided that all the state government employees who have been recruited under the fixed-wage policy will, first, give a memorandum to the concerned head of the department with a demand to end the policy immediately and second, work wearing black ribbon as a mark of protest on February 16.

Ahmedabad: In a major verdict, the Gujarat

High Court on Friday told the state government to discard its

`fixed pay job employment scheme` stating that it was

exploitative in nature.


The verdict could impact about 1.5 lakh employees who

have been recruited under the scheme in different government

departments.


A division bench of acting Chief Justice Bhaskar

Bhattacharya and Justice JB Pardiwala also told the state

government to give regular salary benefits to all its fixed

pay employees from the date of their appointment.


The Gujarat government has been employing people in

various fields like police, education, forest department on a

fixed pay basis, where they are given some basic fix pay for

the first five years.


Such employees work on contract for the first five years

and become permanent employee subsequently.

The court told the government to discard the fixed pay

employment scheme saying that it amounted to exploitation of

new employees and against fair practice.


Petitioner Rajendra Shukla in his petition had contended

that the fixed pay scheme was inhuman and new employees were

being exploited by the state government.
