Labour Dept proves to be a boon for construction workers if everyone works with integrity: Anmol Gagan Maan

Chandigarh, August 5, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
Cabinet Minister Ms. Anmol Gagan Maan today held a meeting with various officials of the Labor Department. This meeting was held at the Labour Bhawan of District SAS Nagar. During the meeting, the Cabinet Minister reviewed the works of the department in detail. In this meeting, the officers and inspectors working at the district level informed the Cabinet Minister about the difficulties faced in implementing the labour welfare schemes under the Punjab Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board at the ground level.

Addressing the meeting, Cabinet Minister Madam Anmol Gagan Maan said that this government is committed to the progress of every section of the people. She said that construction workers are the pillar of our progress.

Therefore, the schemes being run for the welfare of the construction workers should be fully implemented at the ground level. On this occasion, she said that during the last financial year, benefits of Rs. 35 crore were given to the workers under various schemes for the welfare of the construction workers. She said that during the first 4 months of this financial year, Rs 34 crore has been disbursed to the construction workers in their bank accounts under their welfare schemes.

Cabinet Minister Madam Maan directed the officials to settle the pending requests of the construction workers in a time-bound manner. She instructed the officials that while implementing the schemes for the welfare of the construction workers, if there is any negligence on the part of the officials, then it will be dealt with strictly.

She said that camps will be organized at the district level to give the benefits of the board’s schemes to the construction workers and to register the workers. She said that the first district level camp for registration of construction workers will be held at Kharar on 21.08.2022.

She said that a construction worker who has worked as a construction worker for 90 days in 12 months can take advantage of the board’s schemes by registering himself. During the meeting, the officials and inspectors working in the district level offices informed the Cabinet Minister about the problems they were facing, which were assured to be resolved immediately.

Secretary of Labour Department Mr. Manvesh Singh Sidhu, Labour Commissioner Mr. Arun Sekhari, Additional Labour Commissioner Mrs. Mona Puri and other officials were also present on this occasion.
