The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has decided to provide life insurance cover to all its 2500 employees working in different Gurudwara Sahibs in this time of corona crisis.
In a statement released here today, the DSGMC President Mr. Manjinder Singh Sirsa disclosed that there are 2500 employees which include Sewadars, Raagis, Security Personnel working in all the Gurudwara Sahibs of the DSGMC.
He said that all of these will be provided with a life insurance cover of Rs. 2 lakh each and it will provide cover in case of death with COVID-19, with any other cronic disease and even in case of accidental death. He said that these employees have done exemplary work for the service of humanity in this crisis period since last around two months.
Mr. Sirsa said that the DSGMC feels it is our duty to provide life insurance cover to all these employees and it will be a befitting way to say thank you to them for their service done during the pandemic period of COVID-19.
The DSGMC President said that these employees are backbone of the DSGMC and it is most important that they are provided life insurance cover so as to secure future of their families in case there is an mishappening during this period of pandemic. There are no words by which we can thank these employees who have provided langar to lakhs of people that too at their doorsteps in this period of crisis.
He said that though different governments have come forward to help their front warriors by ensuring life insurance cover for them but no one has bothered about such persons who are also front warriors and are serving langar to the people and providing essential services to all the medical staff which has been provided with stay arrangements at different Sarais (Inns) of the DSGMC keeping in view their difficulties.
He said that in such a situation the DSGMC has decided to itself provide this life insurance cover to all these front warriors.
