Srinagar, Dec 1, CNS: The woes of Social Welfare Department employees of Jammu and Kashmir continue to increase as the Supervisors in Kashmir division have not been paid salary for past one year.
The employees had called off their strike after an assurance from Government of addressing their problem.
“We are suffering badly as authorities are not taking any measures to pay us. We are permanent employees and yet without salaries from last one year. We are working without any pay,” the Supervisors of Social Welfare Department told news agency CNS.
“The assurance from the government was just an eyewash as the employees are still waiting for salaries. We are totally dependent on their monthly salary to run our households and due to non-release of salary, we are facing many hardships,” they said.
A top official from the Department admitted that there was a delay in release of salaries. He added that salaries will be released to Supervisors in coming days. (CNS)
