PANAJI: Fatorda MLA and Goa Forward Chief Vijai Sardesai today demanded to withdraw the circular issued with regard to the salary certificate.
Govt should immediately withdraw the circular issued with regard to the Salary Certificate. This will encourage beg, borrow,steal,” said Sardesai
He further said that he does not understand who is advising the government on these things.
The Goa government yesterday had implemented restrictions on issuing salary certificates to the government department and quasi-government department employees.
Registrar of Cooperative Societies Manuel Barreto has informed us about the government’s decision not to issue salary certificates to its employees and accordingly, the circular issued in January 2003, with regards to salary certificates, has been withdrawn.
However, the Salary Drawing and Disbursing Officer has been granted powers to verify the financial position of the employee and decide on issuing the certificates.
“Nevertheless, DDO shall use his due diligence while issuing the salary certificate and on being satisfied that the employee is financially sound to repay the loan amount after having a substantial amount to take home, issue the salary certificate,” the notification states
