Assam Government Employees To Face Pay Cut For Ignoring Parents, Differently-Abled Siblings

December 11, 2019 0 By JohnValbyNation

The Assam government is set to roll out a law from October 2 making it mandatory for state government employees to look after their aged and dependent parents and differently-abled siblings who do not have a source of income.

Last year, the state assembly had passed Assam Employees Parents Responsibility and Norms for Accountability and Monitoring (PRANAM) Bill, 2017 – which makes all these compulsory.

Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that if a particular government employee does not look after his or her parents then 10 per cent of their salary would be deducted and transferred to their parents’ accounts.
