STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: National Mazd-oor Conference (NMC) urged upon Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti to take up the issue of implementation of Seventh Pay Commission in favour of employees and pensioners in Jammu and Kashmir.
President NMC, Subash Shastri appealed to the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti to regularise the services of 61,000 daily rated workers.
Addressing NMC workers meeting here on Sunday, Shastri said that more than eight lakh families of the State are dependent upon salary, pension and wages, therefore, the State Government should always give due attention towards various issues and problems of the employees, pensioners and daily rated workers.
Stressing on the need to enhance the wages of daily rated workers to Rs 350 working in the various departments of the State Government which have already been approved by the Central Government as Minimum Wage Rate, Shastri said that it is difficult for the daily rated workers to cope up with the hiking prices of essential commodities and enhancement of their wages at par with Centre is a need of the hour.
Several resolutions were adopted in the meeting include release of pending wages, salary and pension in favour employees, pensioners and daily rated workers well before Diwali festival besides release of pending installment of DA due from July etc.
