2 years on FMPHWs without salary

SRINAGAR: A delegation of Female Multipurpose Health Workers (FMPHW) working in the state’s health department alleged on Monday that no salary has been paid to them from over a year, pushing them to face miseries.
“The FMPHW working in Kashmir province have not been paid their salaries for last thirteen months, which has made their plight worse. The problem is persistent for several years, no permanent solution for it has been found till date and the FMPHW continue to suffer,” said Amina Bano, FMPHW posted at central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
She along with her colleagues urged that the matter be sorted out and taken up with appropriate authorities by new government to ensure regular disbursement of salaries to them henceforth.
They said that Female Medical Health Workers were doing their services honestly in the health department but the callous approach of the department towards these health workers forced them to face miseries. They further said that we are not getting our salaries for the last 13 months due to which our families are starving. Economic situation has become so worst that has affected study, health look after and even entire kitchen budget of our families.
Despite repeated pleas and protests regarding highlighting their long pending demand of releasing pending salaries of 13 months, and to regularize the salaries month wise, our pleas are heard by deaf ears, they alleged. However, instead of giving hearing to their demands government use to turn Nelsons’ eye. “Every festival passed through charmless and even celebrated with down hearted because of unaffordable condition. However, the medical department never seemed to do the justice with us and left us as unclaimed employees without having the salaries for the last 13 months,” they miffed.
Talking to Rising Kashmir NRHM Mission Director, Dr Yashpal Sharma hung up the phone after saying that he was in meeting. Meanwhile Regional Director NRHM Dr Shazia Wafai assured to look into the matter and address it on priority.
