Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, July 10: Office of the Labour Commissioner of Jammu & Kashmir is expected to settle the pay related issues of the employees at the earliest so that they heave a sigh of relief.
However, it has been observed in many cases that action is delayed thus leading to resentment among the masses especially the affected ones. One such case has come to the fore from the frontier district of Kupwara with an employee running from pillar to post in order to get his due wages.
Sharafat Manzoor, a resident of Kupwara moved an application with Assistant Labour Commissioner, Kupwara that Gulistan News Agency has denied salary to him for more than three years. In the application Sharafat said that he was working for the news agency from August 2015 to November 2018 as a reporter with the monthly pay of Rs. 8,000.
In the application, Sharafat said that his wages were not paid and as such he had to go through mental agony. The applicant said that the news agency has hired some other person for the purpose despite the fact that his salary has remained pending for years now.
The application was moved by Sharafat with the hope that his plea would be heeded to and he would get the salary, but that was not to be. The Assistant Labour Commissioner, Kupwara failed to redress the issue despite the fact that the office issued two notices to the higher ups of the Gulistan News Agency.
Assistant Labour Commissioner, Kupwara issued notices to Ishfaq Gowher, Editor, JK Gulistan News, Srinagar and Subhash Chowdhari, Chief Editor, Gulistan News Agency, Jammu. Both the concerned persons of Gulistan News Agency did not appear at the office of the Assistant Labour Commissioner, Kupwara.
After its failure to address the issue, the office of Assistant Labour Commissioner Kupwara forwarded the complaint to Assistant Labour Commissioner, Srinagar. However, here too no difference has been made so far and the complainant is yet to receive the pending wages.
"Whereas this office has received an application form one Shri Sharafat Manzoor S/o. Manzoor Ahmad claiming therein that he was working in JK Gulistan News Agency from August 2015 to November 2018 as a Reporter and his monthly wages were Rs. 8,000/-. He stated in the application that the agency has hired some other person in his place which is injustice to him," reads the correspondence of Assistant Labour Commissioner, Kupwara to Assistant Labour Commissioner, Srinagar.
"Whereas this office issued notice to the Editor, JK Gulistan News vide no. ALC/Kup/2019/932-33 dated 28-03-2019 and no. ALC/Kup/2019/36 dated 18-04-2019 wherein he was directed to attend this office personally or through an agent on 30-04-2019 but he failed to comply. Therefore the case is forwarded to your good self for taking appropriate action under rules," reads the correspondence ALC/Kup/2019/58 dated 03-5-2019.
