Employment to every family by January, will implement new pension system: Golay

GANGTOK,: Chief Minister PS Golay at Rholu Diwas announced that government employment would be provided to every family in Sikkim who have no single member in government service by January 2024.

“There are many families who have no single member in employment and we will give employment to every such family before the 2024 election. We have already prepared appointment letters and will distribute them in January so there is one employment in every family. All those who have applied for jobs during my Janta Bhetghat programmes, do not worry, all the applications have been scrutinized, we will give jobs to all by January,” he said.

This is my Rojzar guarantee of one job for every household, asserted Golay.

The Chief Minister also reiterated his promise of regularizing the OFOJ employees and all other causal government workers before the 2024 elections.

Golay, in his address, committed to fulfil the demand of State government employees for re-introducing the old pension system. I have also given consent to the proposal of “one rank one pension scheme” for all retired government employees and it will be implemented from 2024, he said.
