GOVERNMENT employees are allowed to enjoy a period of four months to prepare for their retirement before the date on which they retire from service under the provision stated in Civil Services Regulations 81, Dr Win Thein, Chairman of the Union Civil
Service Board told a session of the second Pyithu Hluttaw yesterday.
The UCSB Chairman added that it is not necessary for government servants to save their service leave to gain the four- month LPR period while answering a question raised by U Khin Cho of Hlaingbwe Constituency.
During yesterday’s session of the Pyithu Hluttaw, parliamentarians debated a proposal urging the Union government to reverse deforestation and environmental degradation in the western part of Magwe Region.
In her discussion on the proposal submitted by Daw Yin Min Hline of Gangaw Constituency, Mindon MP Daw Khin Than Nu blamed chainsaw operators who committed excessive unregulated logging for deforestation.
She pointed out that the easy availability of electric chainsaws at shops in every town is at the root of the problem of forest decline in her constituency, Mindon Township, which used to be surrounded by dense forest.
Likewise, Saw MP U Kyaw Tin said that teak and hardwood timber production in Saw Township ended in 2007 and 2013 respectively due to overexploitation during the period from 1990 to 2000.
Regarding the proposal, Union Minister for Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation U Ohn Win replied that the ministry has been establishing state and private-owned community forest plantations to minimise deforestation in Magwe Region.
So far, 285,084 acres of plantation including teak, hardwood and firewood have been established up until last fiscal year and works are underway to set up 1,000 acres of firewood plantation and 1,557 acres of teak and hardwood plantations in the region for this fiscal year, added the Union minister.
The Pyithu Hluttaw documented the proposal following the Union minister’s clarification.
