They would now get a daily allowance of Rs 600 a day instead of Rs 450 they are presently receiving
The Uttarakhand cabinet in its meeting on Wednesday gave its nod for the proposal to increase the remuneration of home guards. The home guards would now get a daily allowance of Rs 600 per day instead of Rs 450 they are presently receiving. The state cabinet discussed 13 issues in its meeting held at Vidhan Sabha during the lunch break on the first day of winter session.
In the meeting, the cabinet gave its approval to 12 out of 13 matters placed before it. The increase of remuneration of home- guards would put an additional burden of Rs 24 crore on state exchequer. As the remuneration would be increased with retrospective effect, the government would have to shell out Rs 60 crore in arrears. The cabinet also decided to pay the benefit of the work-charge( temporary service) period in calculation of pension benefit for the workers of Public Works Department (PWD). These 3050 workers have got decisions in their favour both from High Court and Supreme Court which forced the government to pay them benefits.
The PWD would pay the arrears of Rs 235 crore to these workers in four installments spread over two years. In another decision the cabinet decided to transfer all issues related to paramilitary forces personnel from the Sainik Kalyan department to home department. It was also decided that no village would now be added in the Binsar eco-sensitive zone and a proposal in this regard was sent to government of India.
The cabinet on the day gave its nod to application of Graphic Era University to open its Kumaon campus. In one of its decisions, the cabinet exempted the MDDA from paying a sum of Rs 3.22 crore to PWD for constructing a multi level parking in Mussoorie. It was also decided to transfer 115 posts from UDRF to PWD.
