Gangtok, Dec. 12: Sikkim chief minister Pawan Chamling today announced the regularisation of the jobs of 4,300 casual workers who have been serving for more than 15 years in different government departments in the state.

“Today, I announce the regularisation of all those casual workers who have rendered their selfless service to the state government for more than 15 years,” said Chamling during the celebration of the Government Formation Day at Manan Kendra in Gangtok.

According to a source, the job regularisation will be to those workers who have been appointed on (or before) 31st January 1998. Their salaries would be given as per the government rules stipulated for their designated post.

Pema Doma Bhutia, the president of All Sikkim Muster Roll and Work Charged Association, said there are around 4,300 casual employees who fall in the category of those working for 15 years or more. These workers are mostly peons, office runners, drivers and lower division clerks. Once the employee is regularised, he/she would get all the facilities such as dearness allowance, travel allowance, medical and other leave.

P.D. Rai, the spokesperson of the Sikkim Democratic Front, said: “This is one of the initiatives of good governance. The employees who have given so much of their service to the government, deserve regularisation.”
