Stop recruitment of daily wagers or face action: Govt to depts
New Delhi, June 14: All Central Government ministries were today asked to stop recruitment of daily wagers failing which disciplinary action would be taken against officials concerned.
They have been asked to assess the work being done by regular employees for output and productivity so that the work of casual employees could be given to them.
The move comes after it was observed that in spite of strict guidelines on engagement of casual labour, various ministries continued to engage casual workers for work of regular nature against the Government’s policies.
“It is, therefore, reiterated that all ministries or departments may ensure strict compliance of the guidelines on engagement of casual labourers.
“Negligence in the matter of implementing these guidelines should be viewed seriously and brought to the notice of the appropriate authorities for taking prompt and suitable action against the defaulters,” the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said in a directive issued to secretaries of all Central Government ministries
