4,500 New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) employees will get regularisation appointment letters on Wednesday from Union Home Minister Amit Shah, awarding permanent status to individuals who have spent 20–25 years of their life working in the division.
On Wednesday night, the event will be held at Talkatora Stadium in the nation's capital. Four thousand five hundred Regular Muster Roll (RMR) personnel of the NDMC have been regularised, according to a letter the Home Minister sent to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier in February.
The regularisation of these RMR personnel was granted by the municipal body in 2019 under the leadership of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who also serves as the ex officio member of the NDMC as the MLA of the New Delhi assembly seat.
Kejriwal had also written to the Home Minister in February of this year to request the regularisation of the RMR staff.
Kejriwal emphasised that after being authorised by the council, the request for the approval of the recruiting guidelines for Group “C” jobs was sent to the Ministry of Home Affairs in September 2020.
The NDMC RMR staff had recently visited with the Delhi Chief Minister many times to urge that their services be regularised.
Officials claim that RMR workers, or daily wage earners, who are given precedence when there is work, have been waiting for their regularisation against the open positions in NDMC for a number of years.
People who have worked in the NDMC for 20–25 years and come from low-income families are concerned about this issue.
The NDMC is likewise experiencing a labour shortage. The regularisation of these workers will help to a great extent in resolving this problem.
