Civic workers may get permanent employment

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Saturday that the government may roll back the order for the recruitment of 4,000 permanent pourakarmikas, if those working on contract basis presently are not absorbed for these jobs.

He was speaking at the State-level Pourakarmika Convention in the City. Responding to the request by members of the Karnataka State Pourakarmika Maha Sangha to ensure regularisation of all contract employees, he said that it would not be possible to absorb all of them at once. However, he promised that the government would take necessary steps in this direction.

He said that he knew the hardships faced by pourakarmikas working on contract basis. Their salaries are meagre and not paid on time, the chief minister said.

Siddaramaiah promised to regularise the jobs of contract employees in other Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ jobs such as drivers and clerical staff. He said he would speak to the law secretary in this regard.

The chief minister said that he would ‘try’ to provide Yeshaswini cards to all pourakarmikas. He rejected the proposal by Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya and Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake to have exclusive residential schools for children of Pourakarmikas.
