Bahuguna assures revision of minimum wages for workers

Dehradun, June 8
Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna today assured the House that a committee would be constituted for carrying out revision of minimum wages for workers working in industrial areas and these wages would be higher than all the states.
Intervening during question hour, Labour Minister Harish Chander Durgapal failed to satisfy the BJP MLA, Surinder Jeena, who wanted to know if the minimum wages being offered in Uttarakhand were set for revision.
The member was also told that the payment to daily wagers working in Transit Hostel , Secretariat and Assembly would be paid through cheques.
The Minister for Urban Development, Pritam Singh Panwar, today accepted the suggestion made by former Speaker and BJP MLA Harbans Kapoor that a process should be initiated whereby the cow dung is collected from dairies on the pattern of door-to-door collection of household garbage under way in the state. The member said such a provision would prevent the choking of drains as almost all the cow dung is thrown in the drains.
The minister said the Urban Development Department is working at a plan to shift some of the dairies to less congested places. "The plan that was chalked out in 2010 under maha yojana could not be implemented as the selection of land in Chakrata and Jogiwala proved problematic. Most of the dairies that are functioning in the city are being asked to keep these neat and clean. As there is no objection from the people, as long as these dairies were kept clean, there was no immediate plan to move them,” informed the minister.
