Gurdaspur college staff sans salary for 3 months

Chandigarh, June 10

Over 200 employees of Beant College of Engineering and Technology, Gurdaspur, have not been paid salary for the past three months.

The employees alleged that the management diverted the funds and also took up "unnecessary expenditure" for paying arrears to some of the staff members. They said an audit should be conducted on the expenditure of the college.

Punjab Technical Education Minister Charanjit Channi said he was aware of the issue. "These are self-finance colleges and the staff get salaries from the tuition fee fund which is not sufficient to pay salaries right now, thus resulting in the delay. I have taken up the matter of salaries with the Finance Minister. The salaries will be released soon."

On being asked about the alleged wrongdoings by the college authorities, he said he would get the matter probed thoroughly in case there was any such issue. The college is not covered under the planned budget for technical education in the state since 2004.

Rural Development Minister Tript Rajinder Bajwa said the college employees had come to him for help. "I will certainly take up the matter with the authorities concerned," he added. — TNS
