SRINAGAR, May 14: The government officers/officials who have been allegedly using the service of class fourth employees as domestic aides draw their salaries thus violating the rule 'no work no pay'.
According to well established sources, "there most of the class fourth employees comprising daily wagers, need based employees or SPOs are being paid salaries/remunerations for working in the residences of babus.
We believe that, the law of 'no work and no pay' affirms that the people especially government employees should not be paid salaries when their services are rendered by some officials/officers in their domestic chores, said sources.
Sources said that, they have met some daily wagers, need based employees of PHE, I&FC, PWD, R&B, PDD, who claimed that they have rendered maximum service of their life at the home of some retired officials on a promise of a permanent government job.
Once the government official retires from his/her services, they have no authority whatsoever to keep the employees for doing household chores, and during their services they have also no authority to take the services of employees for the domestic help, reliable sources told early times.
There are also some top officers in the police department who retired after ten years but arew still guarded by the SPOs, who are not only providing them security but their services are being utilized in domestic work as well, said reliable sources.
Sources also said that, if the employees have been deputed with any official, then who suffers at the actual place of postings, it is the general public only, and government must think over it.
