Regularisation issue: Govt silent, daily wagers angry
1/7/2021 11:52:32 PM

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Jan 7: Resentment is brewing among casual and daily wagers working in various Government Departments in J&K for decades together as Government is maintaining stoic silence over the issue.
Notwithstanding with the policy decision of previous BJP, PDP coalition Government in 2017 that all the daily rated workers will be regularised after proper verification and checking of their biometric records the issue has been put in dust bin by the Lt Governor' s administration. According to sources despite the agitation and protests by the daily wagers in different parts of country for over last one year the Government has not taken any decision on the fate of these hapless workers who are running from pillar to post for years together for justice.
Sources said as a policy matter previously the daily rated workers were regularised after completion of seven years of services and in Power Development Department (PDD) an SRO has also been issued in this regard but for last over a decade this policy has been abandoned and even in PDD no DPC has been held for regularisation and promotion of daily wagers. Not only in PDD but also in Irrigation , OHE or R&B DPCs for regularisation and promotion of field staff were not held till date with the result the fate of these hapless workers whose number has crossed over one lakh is hanging in balance.
Sources said earlier as per the data the Government had announced regularisation of about 6000 daily wagers based on the tentative lists but after the records obtained from muster rolls and biometric attendence their number swelled to over one lakh with the result the issue was put on hold by PDP, BJP Government and it had mooted a proposal to regularise these hapless workers in phases manner.
But after the dissolution of State Assembly and converting J& K State into UT the issue was put into back burner and no headway made on it till date giving rise to resentment among daily wagers and their families who have held protests and hartals besides ghearoing BJP office and taking procession to Civil Secretariat.
Demanding their early regularisation Mir Ghulam Rasool Butwani has accused the Government of playing with the future of thousands of daily rated workers among whom majority have turned over age. He said Government should frame a concrete policy on the regularisation of temporary workers and daily wagers and strictly abide by that.
Mir siad thousands of posts of executive staff is lying vacant in various engineering departments and Government should fill up them by regularising the services of daily wagers.
