The Uttarakhand government would enter into an understanding with the common service centres (CSC) for new registrations and renewals of construction labourers. The labour minister Harak Singh Rawat said in Vidhan Sabha on Wednesday that the state government is committed for welfare of the construction workers and for it the process of registration is being simplified. He said the new arrangement would result in relieving existing pressure on labour department offices where long queues of workers are witnessed for registrations. The minister said that under the Uttarakhand building and other construction workers welfare board, a total of 3,02,600 workers have been registered and registrations of 40,357 workers have been renewed. In response to a question on the subject, the minister said that 45,000 workers were provided sanitary napkins while 65,000 sewing machines have been given to the workers. Similarly, 41,000 solar lanterns, 39,730 blankets, 54,000 umbrellas, 32,000 tool kits and 53,312 bicycles were provided to the labourers. He said that the state government levies a charge of one per cent on all construction workers. The cess is used to create a fund for welfare of the construction workers.
