Although the sources in the Government assure that the salary would be disbursed in the mid of April, but they told that the motive to introduce new system to bring more transparency in the system .Almost each and every year after the beginning of new financial year, it is late in disbursing salary for a week. But this time the wait is likely to be long, perhaps 15 to 30 days. Although the budget had been passed on March 28, but the budget recommendations could not be sent to the Government as there were holidays till April 1. Another reason, which is to be told behind the delay of salary that the Government has introduced a new site for salary with changed company.
Earlier, the bills were sent through online system, but without any intimation, the old site has been closed. Interestingly, there is no formal and technical information about the new introduced website to the District Treasury officers, more over the employees have not been not been trained to operate it with new system.
