Assam Govt employees will get full salary of April on 8 May



Assam Government would pay State Govt employees full salary of April on 8th May 2020 despite the economy is being severely affected by COVID-19 lockdownFinance Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma declared it on Press Meet held today i.e on 29-04-2020. 


Addressing a Press Meet today at NHM Guwahati office State health, Education, and finance minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said the state government has initiated a slew of austerity measures to tide over the present economic crisis arising due to the lockdown. The state government is not going for any salary cut of its employees unlike other states across the country.

Though many state governments have resorted to salary cut of their employees, we are not going for salary cut of our employees. We will pay the full salary in the month of May,” said by Dr. Sarma.

However, this time they will get the salary on 8th May instead of the first day of the month,” added Dr.Sarma.


Assam has faced an 80 percent drop in revenue collection in April this year with only Rs 193 crore collected as against Rs 932.56 crore in the same month in 2019, he said.

"The Cabinet has, therefore, decided to promote fiscal discipline without restricting the operational efficiency of the government and it will come into effect immediately", he said.


Moreover, he said that the Governor, Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers have already decided to donate 30 percent of their salaries to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund, he said.

Remunerations of Chairman and Vice-Chairman of all PSUs, Corporations, and Boards will be reduced by 25 percent from May one.
