Scrapping SRO 202 welcome step, Govt must regularise daily wagers now: Kadfeen

Srinagar, June 15 (KNS): Congress leader Kadfeen Choudhary on Monday has welcomed government decision on scrapping the anti- youth SRO-202 in Jammu and Kashmir, urging the government that regularisation of daily wagers should also be prioritised in the same manner.
Kadfeen in a statement issued to KNS, said that the government besides scrapping the SRO 202 should also provide opportunities of livelihood to the day wagers who are working on meagre wages in different departments of Jammu and Kashmir for decades. “The hardships of these people cannot be ignored by the government. Their sufferings have to be kept in consideration and cannot be left in lurch. It is high time that their services should be regularised on priority,” said Kadfeen.
He said that under the SRO 202, during the period of first five years, the government appointee was entitled to the minimum of scale of pay along with the grade pay applicable to the post against which he is appointed. And further, every appointee shall after completion of five years period on probation be entitled to fixation of pay in the time-scale of pay applicable to the post against which he was appointed.
Kadfeen said that now when the SRO is scrapped, it is high time that the government takes a holistic view on regularising the services of daily wagers in Jammu and Kashmir.
