CBD BELAPUR: The san­i­ta­tion work­ers of NMMC will be paid as per the 4th pay com­mis­sion rec­om­men­da­tions. The NMMC will spend Rs 3,08,78,640 on the wages for the next five years.

The res­o­lu­tion was unan­i­mously ap­proved by the gen­eral body meet­ing on Wed­nes­day with op­po­si­tion leader Vi­jay Chougule de­mand­ing that lift­men too be in­cluded in the cat­e­gory.

The per­son­nel at Gau­rav Kala Ken­dra, fire sta­tions, mayor bun­ga­low, cess depart­ment, prop­erty tax depart­ment and so on were ear­lier paid lump­sum.

There had been a long stand­ing de­mand that the work­ers who have been paid low amounts for years, as com­pared to their col­leagues in other de­part­ments, be paid higher wages as per the 4th pay com­mis­sion rec­om­men­da­tions.

The move will ben­e­fit 32 per­son­nel. Speak­ing on the res­o­lu­tion, Chougule said, “Though the res­o­lu­tion has come late, we sup­port it fully. We would want the lift­men work­ing in the civic body too to be in­cluded in the list.”

Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor Namdeo Bha­gat said, “Why is this res­o­lu­tion for only five years. It should be made a per­ma­nent pol­icy. It should also be en­sured that th­ese work­ers get their pay in time.”

House leader J D Su­tar said: “Why are work­ers of com­mu­nity cen­tre, health cen­tre not in­cluded. Also, why are th­ese work­ers not be­ing paid on com­mon pay for com­mon work.”

Deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Babasa­heb Ra­jale, “We have pre­sented a res­o­lu­tion for five years so that the work of the con­trac­tor can be re­viewed ev­ery year fol­low­ing which an ex­ten­sion will be given.”

Chougule said, “The ex­ten­sions are not be­fore the house. Hence­forth it should be brought to the gen­eral body ev­ery time for con­fir­ma­tion.”

Why is this res­o­lu­tion for only five years. It should be made a per­ma­nent pol­icy. It should also en­sure that th­ese work­ers get their pay in time. NAMDEO BHA­GAT, Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor
