Jammu: National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) today appealed to the state government to take immediate decision for the release of 10 per cent DA of state government employees and pensioners due from January.
“There is a need for early release of 10 per cent DA due from January last. We appeal to the state government to take immediate decision in this regard,” NMC President Subash Shastri said while addressing a workers’ rally here today.
He said DA was part of salary and routine financial matter and so there should be no hitch in release of pending instalment.
The Centre and many state governments of had already released the instalment, he said.
Demanding early release of pending wages of daily-rated workers in various departments of the state government, he said these wagers were facing serious financial hardships as their services had not been regularised for the last many years nor were they getting their wages regularly.
Other demands like enhancement of the remuneration of daily wagers to Rs 10,000 per month, regularisation of services of the daily wagers who have completed seven years of work, increase in medical allowances and issue of regularisation orders to 180 daily wagers working in the Rural Development Department were also highlighted in the rally.
