NPC urges KCR to regularise NIMS Contract employees

Hyderabad: National Public Council (NPC) on Saturday urged Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to take steps for the regularisation of services of the contract workers working in NIMS. It asked the CM to amend GO No.306 to regularise them.

NPC’s Telangana State Working President Advocate (High Court) Md Rahail Ahmed said some 1,350 employees were working on contract basis for the last 25 years and added that they were being paid Rs.14,700 per month. He said the employees were getting only Rs. 12,900 after deduction of EPF.

The contract employees are serving with highest dedication and sincerity with a hope that CM K Chandrasekhra Rao will regularize their employment before they attain the age of superannuation, Unfortunately nothing has been done in KCR’s alleged Golden Telangana

Stating that the State Labour Commissioner issued GO no. 306 on July 4, 2018 for contract workers of hospitals, nursing homes and clinical dispensaries for enhancement of their salaries to Rs. 20,000 per month, Rahail Ahmed said the State government did not enhance the salaries of the employees of the NIMS.

Rahail Ahmed said it was not right to pay the same amount of salary of Rs.14700 to those employees, who put in 25 years of service at the institute and to those who are working for the last four years. He urged the CM to amend the GO and pay Rs. 20,000 per month as salary to the senior employees of the institute.

Reminding the CM about his promise that there would not be any contract employee in Telangana State, Rahail Ahmed also urged the CM to regularise the salaries of the contract employees.
