Vaccination Status of Assam Govt Employees to be ascertained before releasing salaries


The Assam State Disaster Management Authority has released an order directing all departmental heads in the state to ascertain the vaccination status of frontline government servants before releasing their monthly salaries or remuneration from this month onwards. This comes in the light of the state government’s observation that many frontline government servants, including those hired on contractual basis or with fixed pay have not yet taken the vaccine, irrespective of their registration on the CoWIN portal.

The Chief Secretary Jishnu Barua in this order pointed out that this had happened despite the arrangement of large scale vaccination for all eligible age groups, both online and offline.

The ASDMA has expressed concern that such cases of non-vaccination of frontline government servants could further aggravate the Covid situation and put vulnerable sections of the population at risk as the state is still not completely out of the second wave of the pandemic in spite of the declining trend in Covid numbers.
