Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said that her government would regularise the services of 60,000 daily wagers and casual labourers working in various departments.
The process to formulate a road map to regularise them was started this year with the state government constituting a high-level committee for the purpose.
“Our govt will be regularizing 60,000 daily wagers & casual labourers working in various departments in J&K to provide sustainable livelihoods to those who need it the most. Hard work & dedication must always be recognized & appreciated,” Mufti tweeted.
The panel headed by Chief Secretary B B Vyas submitted its report to the finance department in October, stating that the total number of workers engaged in 31 departments under 15 different categories, including casual labourers and seasonal workers, was 1,00,501.
