Dissolved HPSSC Employees Demand Pending Salaries


Employees of the dissolved Himachal Pradesh Staff Selection Commission (HPSSC) have come forward to demand the release of their pending salary dues. The commission was dissolved by the state government in February, and since then, the employees allege that they have not received any orders or communication.
In a meeting held outside the commission’s office on Tuesday, the employees expressed their concern and claimed that they had not received their salaries for February. Joginder Singh, the general secretary of the employees’ union, spoke to reporters and said that the employees are in a difficult situation as they do not know whom to approach for their pending salaries.
Singh also highlighted the fact that the employees who are retiring or have retired in the past two months are the worst affected by this situation. He stated that some of them have to pay admission fees for their children’s higher studies next month and are worried about the financial implications of not receiving their salaries.
The employees also alleged that the state government-appointed officer on special duty is not receiving their calls or meeting with them. Singh demanded that punitive action be taken against those who tarnished the commission’s image.
The Himachal Pradesh Staff Selection Commission, which was based in Hamirpur, was dissolved after the recruitment exam paper for junior office assistants was leaked in December. Since then, the employees have been left in limbo, without any communication or information about their pending salaries or future job prospects.
The situation has left the employees anxious and uncertain about their financial and professional futures.
