National Commission for Safai Karamcharis stress more on street scavengers in other States however Manipur has no street scavengers hence street sweepers are included in the list, he added.

The Chairman checked on whether they are given wages or salaries as prescribed by the Government.

He was informed that in context of Manipur, sweepers are categorized in two groups-regular employees and daily wages/ muster roll.

Regular employees are drawing monthly salaries like any other Government employees whereas daily wages/ muster roll employees are given minimum wages as prescribed by the Government.

They are also enjoying benefits of welfare schemes such as CMHT provided they fulfil the eligibility criteria along with the paid holidays during festivals.

At present, employees working under Imphal Municipal Corporation are approximately 250 and those working under 10 NGOs are 400 .

Later in the evening, DC, Imphal West organised an interaction programme for Safai Karamcharis with M Venkatesan at the lawn of DC Office Complex Lamphelpat.

During the interaction programme, he encouraged the workers to bring up any problems faced by them related to their works and to bring about solutions since it is necessary to express their grievances and problems.

The Chairman informed that the National Commission for Safai Karamacharis was established solely for them.

He stressed on the importance of services provided by them in day to day life and said that he can relate to the problems faced by them as he is also an offspring of safai karamacharis workers.
