JKPCC Vice Presidents Haji Abdul Rashid Dar and Mohammad Anwar Bhat have drawn the attention of the government to the regularization issue of contingent paid employees. who are working under the education department for many years, but have not been considered for regularization, so far.
They said these employees are discharging their services as sweepers, night guards etc since many years, the Govt seems not willing to regularize their services, which is reportedly defined under SRO 308.
“Despite serving Education Department to the best of their ability, they have not been paid their salaries since 2017, which is very discouraging for them, urging the Govt to release their salaries to ensure that their families do not face starvation,” PCC Vice Presidents said.
“Apart from working as night guards, sweepers, they are also undertaking the cleaning of school grounds, besides taking part in Election duties, from time to time,” they added and said the government must consider their regularization, on a priority basis.
“They (contingent paid employees) fully deserve the benefits against the services they are rendering to Education Department, the government must implement the SRO 308 service rules to ensure that these poor people are not compelled to go on strike,” PCC Vice Presidents said.
