Enumerators, supervisors seek release of honorarium
Ganderbal, Aug 7: Hundreds of enumerators and supervisors who performed the duty of census for 2010-2011 have demanded immediate release of their honorarium for the 2nd phase of the process.
According to the employees of various government departments, they were asked to perform the census duty as enumerators and supervisors and had to attend a three-day training course in May last year. “We successfully completed the training course for which we were promised an honorarium at the rate of Rs 250 per day,” they said.
“We were promised that payment will be handed over to us soon after the process of enumeration will be over, but till now, we have not received a penny”, an enumerator wishing not to be named said, adding that for the first phase, they had to wait for eight months to get the honorarium, but for the second phase which they did in February, the same had not been released yet.
"Despite completing the process within stipulated time, the government has failed to give us our due” they added
The enumerators, also consisting of ReT’s and other low-wage employees are at the receiving end as the survey process had heavily tell upon their pockets. “It (duty for surveying) cost me Rs 1,600 while going to the destinations for collecting the desired data,” said another enumerator.
“We have been time and again demanding for the release of the honorarium for the duty, but to no avail”, a group of enumerators and supervisors told Greater Kashmir. “We request concerned authorities to take immediate steps for the release of the money”, they said.
Repeated attempts to contact the District Development Commissioner Ganderbal Showkat Ahmad Mir proved unsuccessful.
