Contractual employees demand regular jobs



With the Assembly elections round the corner, the organised groups have started pushing their agenda for seeking more benefits from the state government.

Contractual employees in all departments of the state have come under a common banner and are demanding regularisation of their services after a period of three years instead of five years at present. A delegation of Himachal All Contract Teachers Federation met state youth Congress president Vikramaditya Singh in Shimla and raised the issue with him.

Suraj Chauhan, president of the federation, said in case the government accepted their demand and period for regularisation was reduced from five to three years time, around 40,000 contractual employees in the state would be benefited.

The Himachal Non-Gazetted Services Federation has also supported our demand, Chauhan said. The federation has decided to expand the executive committee by adding representatives of the left out departments to strengthen the demand of regularisation.
