The employees of Social Forestry department held a sit-in at Press Enclave here to push for resolving their demands.
The protestors urged authorities to fulfill their demands at an earliest. "We appeal authorities to speed up the amendment of recruitment rules of J&K Social Forestry non-Gazetted Service, awaiting approval in civil secretariat for last two years. We also demand release of Sundays' salary and risk allowances to the employees of Social Forestry department," the protesters said.
"As per agreement signed between Government and JCC in 2011, authorities had agreed for formation of regularization policy for those casual labourers who were engaged after 1994. They had also accepted removal of pay anomalies of various cadres, but that too has not been settled so far," they said.
