Among other things, the unique thing the Budget proposes is directly concerned with the care of the elderly.

Reports say that the state government has now proposed that the pay of its employees be linked to the welfare of their parents.

The state government has reportedly warned its employees that if they fail to take care of their parents, their pay will be deducted.

The part that the government so deducts will be handed over to the parents of the employee.



“It is the responsibility of the children to take care of the elderly parents, and if a government employee fails then it is the duty of the government to do so by cutting his pay,” Sarma reportedly said.

The budget he presented was a deficit one of Rs.2,349.79 crore. This proposal is aimed for the 2017-18 fiscal.

At the same time, Sarma proposed that each employee will be given Rs.1000 annually for two sets of khadi or handloom apparel.

 

Sarma said that the budget is in line with the vision document of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and trust people reposed in the government.

The Assam government had in 2016 planned to introduce a strict two-child policy for government employees. The policy is aimed at preventing those who have more than two-children from getting government jobs. It is noteworthy that Assam faces the problem of illegal immigration from Bangladesh.
