Agartala: Bag Bazar, one of the reputed shopping stations of Agartala city has been awarded a monetary penalty of Rs 8,005 for charging extra money for carry-bags with its brand name scribbled on it.

West Tripura District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission fined the shopping mall after finding the complaints brought against it factually true.

Litigant Ashmita Banik, who visited the shopping mall to buy some usual stuff on February 28, 2020 had been allegedly harassed by the shopping mall authorities after she inquired about the Rs 5 rupee they charged extra in the name of a plastic carry bag. Despite her repeated attempts, none of the authorities responded to her queries. She filed an official complaint with the commission (CC-86 of 2020) and finally the judgement came in her favour.

The complaint submitted all the evidence including the invoice of the shopping mall where the extra charge was mentioned. The respondent party had denied the allegations and tried to prove her wrong but given the evidence, the commission pronounced its order on September 8 last against it.

In the judgement, the commission asked the opposite party to return Rs 5 charged for the carry bag along with Rs 5,000 as compensation.

An additional Rs 3,000 had also been directed to be paid to the litigant as cost of the litigation. The commission directed the opposite party to make the payments within one month of the date of passing the orders.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
