Govt staff stage protest over salary, cadre
At least 100 Delhi government employees on Tuesday staged a protest at the Delhi Secretariat, demanding clarity on the issues of their salaries and cadre restructuring, which has not happened since 1951.
“We were to get our arrears for work in <g data-gr-id="19">2006,</g> but have not got it till date,” Deepak Bharadwaj, an upper division clerk said. The employees also said there should be no discrimination in the medical facilities provided to Delhi government staff.
The employees staged a protest on the second floor of the Delhi Secretariat. Arvind Ray, secretary, Services, said the employees’ demands would be looked into and that Chief Secretary Kewal Kumar Sharma will speak to them after the cabinet meeting.
On February 3 this year, the Centre had given its approval that the salaries of Delhi government employees be brought at par with those of the Central government.
