Nepal Government not to pay out perks to 38 palace staffers

November 14th, 2007 - 2:28 am ICT by admin  
Earlier, the government had decided to bring the royal palace employees under the civil service.

Only 13 officials out of 51 had voluntarily retired from the palace service following the government decision.

At least 38 palace staffers, who have crossed the age limit of 58 years, will not get salaries anymore, Yubaraj Pandey, Secretary in Nepal Ministry of General Administration was quoted by Nepalnews, as saying.

Pandey said these officials have been disobeying the government’s decision to give compulsory retirement to civil servants once they cross the age limit.

Meanwhile, the royal palace has decided to give retirement to the 38 officials from November 2.

The palace administration’s decision to remove staff members from service comes after the General Administration Ministry’s notification to stop the perks of staffers who have crossed the age limit. (ANI)
