In terms of Rule 12 of the WBS (ROPA) Rules, 2009 the arrears of pay to which a State Government employee is entitled to during the period from the 1st April, 2008 to 31st March, 2009 shall be paid in cash in three consecutive equal yearly installments beginning from the year 2009-2010.

Accordingly in terms of Memo No. 3950-F, dated 27.05.2009 and No. 7189-F(P) dated 02.07.2010 the first and the second installment of arrear calculated as per item no. 6 of this departments’ Memo No. 2728-F dated 07.04.2009, were released to the State Government Employees on and from 1st August, 2009 and 1st August, 2010 respectively.

    This is very unfortunate. What is the objection regarding the 2nd arrear bill? What is the status of the bill at present? At first bring to the notice of your higher authority about the fact in written form. As such, do not forget to keep evidence (Received copy)of your communication. If no response within a fortnight then a give a reminder with a copy to the next higher authority. Mention the urgency of the money before Durga Puja very strongly and give a reason accordingly. Your move should be desperate and polite as well.
