Noida: Workers’ pay stir aided by 2 good Samaritans?

NOIDA: The Noida Authority on Tuesday stated it could now not contain in any venture paintings two men who had climbed a cell tower closing November to protest in opposition to non-payment of contract workers’ dues.

Workers, then again, stated the 2 men were not known to them, but appeared to be just right Samaritans who had taken up their purpose.

The workers had been protesting for the release of 9 months’ pay, which used to be placed on hold for non-submission of Aadhaar playing cards. Rajesh Kumar Singh, officer on particular responsibility on the Noida Authority, stated mountain climbing a cell tower used to be each fallacious and hazardous. “This is why Noida Authority made up our minds not to interact them in long run. We requested the contractors to share information about them but they admitted to have now not known the ones two,” he stated.

The Authority feels that protesting workers either made some “outsiders” climb the tower or had been intentionally withholding the identities of the 2. The contractual workers arranged every other protest on Tuesday on the Noida Authority office, not easy an build up in salary and expressing dissatisfaction with the Authority’s move to offer sanitation contracts to RWAs.

Vikram Kumar, a contractual worker with Jal Division, stated four,571 contractual workers are engaged within the departments of jal, health, electrical, and many others. “We are not easy a revision of salary structure as we receive Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 per 30 days. The Authority must directly rent us as a substitute of enticing us via contractors,” he stated.

Kumar stated he used to be now not aware of the identities of the 2 persons who had climbed the tower.

In November, salaries of around 95 other people had been withheld since they'd now not submitted their Aadhaar playing cards. The two persons had come down from the tower after 12 hours, following an assurance from the Noida CEO. Ravi Kumar, every other sanitation worker, stated he used to be mindful about the incident but did not know who the 2 other people had been.
