KATHMANDU, July 30: The Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration (MoFAGA) has directed the local levels to allow the employees assigned to the local levels after the employee's adjustment process to work.
The Ministry issued this directive after some local levels were said to not allowing such employees to work at the local level. Baburam Adhikari, Joint Secretary at the Ministry, said that the Ministry has directed the local levels which are not allowing the adjusted employees to sign in the attendance register and carry out work to allow these employees to sign in the attendance register.
According to him, the process would be moved ahead for initiating action against the local levels flouting this directive including stopping the grants that the federal government provides to local levels. The Ministry has stated that according to the Local Administration Act it is the responsibility of the local level chief administrative officer to get the employees included in the adjustment process and assigned to the local levels to sign in the official attendance register and give them work.
However, in many cases, the chief of the local levels has been found writing a letter to the employees and asking them not to sign in the attendance register at the local level. This, according to the MoFAGA is against the Act.
