Anganwadi workers' plea to release increased honorarium

The protestors said increase in the honorarium is yet to be credited to their account.The retired Anganwadi workers and helpers must be given Rs 50,000 and Rs 30,000 respectively.

Other demands

The Committee has urged the government to appoint anganwadi workers and helpers in those anganwadi centres where the post is lying vacant following the retirement of the workers. Owing to the shortage of helpers, the anganwadi workers are forced to prepare
food for the kids.

The Women and Child Welfare department should take measure to appoint the helpers.
The Committee members said those helpers who have served anganwadi for the last several years should be given the post of anganwadi worker based on seniority.

In-charge Deputy Commissioner K M Chandre Gowda appealed the anganwadi workers to cooperate in the survey of pensioners which is being carried out under social security scheme.

Committee Members T P Ramesh, K K Sharada and others said that the honorarium for the anganwadi workers for carrying out  population census, SC/ST census is yet to be released.
