Anganwadi workers seek salary hike

Mysore, Apr 4, 2012, DHNS:

21 demands put forth

Karnataka State Anganwadi Workers and Assistants Federation president H K Ramachandrappa demanded that arrears pending from April 2011 should be released immediately.

Addressing a media conference here on Wednesday, he said the honorarium given by state and central governments should be combined and credited together on fifth of every month.

Service of workers should be made permanent. Anganwadi workers should be classified as ‘C’ group and assistants as ‘D’ group employees.

They should also be paid a minimum salary of Rs 10,000 and also be given nutritious food.

There is no distinction between anganwadi workers providing their service for two decades and those who have joined recently. The government should provide additional honorarium based on the years of service.

BPL cards

Emphasis should be on working for the welfare of children. Anganwadi workers should not be used for survey of BPL cards and other such projects.

The food being supplied is of low quality. Instead, the government should use locally available foodgrains.

There should be an increase in the amount of foodgrains supplied to anganwadis.

Flexifund

Flexifund of Rs 1000 should be immediately credited into the account of anganwadi workers.
Mini anganwadi centres should be upgraded and assistants should be employed. Recruitments should be held for the vacant post of assistants immediately.

Travel allowance of Rs 200 should be given, whenever they attend meetings of the government departments. Contingency funds should be increased from Rs 50 to Rs 200.

Buildings

Anganwadis should be given own buildings. Until then, the rent being paid should be increased.

Children attending anganwadis should be given one set of quality uniforms.

Summer holidays should be increased from 15 days to one month, he added.

Association secretary N Shivanna, K Mahadevamma, M Vasantha and others were present.
