New Delhi: East Delhi Municipal Corporation has taken a big decision for the labor workers. It has been decided to insure the workers and employees working on all types of construction sites, commercial or residential happening in the area. Under this, if a laborer dies due to an accident at the workplace, then his family will be given an assistance amount of Rs 3 lakh. Apart from this, an amount of Rs 1.5 lakh will be provided for mutilation and Rs 1 lakh in case of serious injury.
Giving information about this, Mayor of East Delhi Municipal Corporation Shyam Sundar Agarwal said that various types of construction work in the area is a continuous process in which most of the daily wage laborers or some are on contract. But all of them belong to the poor and backward class. The responsibility of financial help to their family is not taken by the landlord or the contractors. Keeping this in mind, the corporation has taken this decision.
Shyam Sundar Aggarwal said that this is a small effort of the corporation so that the victim’s family does not have to go through tragedy or misery after the death in the accident. So that in a way the financial security of their family can be ensured and the employee can work without any fear.
