Ranchi, Nov. 19: Chief Secretary Raj Bala Verma today said that a special campaign would be run from 25th November to 10th December this year to register workers of unorganized sectors. She said that the benefits from the registration should be propagated at large scale among the target workers.
“Camps should be conducted at places where workers assemble in large numbers,” the CS said while giving instructions to the officials of Labour, Employment and Training Department through video conferencing.
Verma said that workers of unorganized sectors should be categorized and that an area wise work plan should be prepared based on the list of such workers.
At the meeting, it was informed by the department officials concerned that 1,51,739 workers have been registered so far.
After registration, benefits of 10 schemes will be given to workers of unorganized sectors.
The CS asked the officials to speed up the work of observation of migrant workers who are working out of the state. She said that the women workers should be provided work in their home town.
The officials should go to migrant families and make them confident that their daughters will be trained and provided work in the state itself.
The CS was told that 36,596 migrant labourers of the five districts of Khunti, Simdega, Gumla, Dumka and Lohardaga were identified out of which 8145 are women workers working in big cities.
During the review, the CS directed officials to run a special campaign to free child labourers and take action against their employers as per law.
The rescued children should be registered so that they don’t fall prey to child labour again. School going children should be admitted in schools and girls in Kasturba schools. Parents of child labours should be connected to govt. schemes so that they don’t let their children fall in the trap again, the CS said.
Principal Secretary, Labour, Employment and Training Department S. K. G. Rahate along with other officers were present in the meeting.
