The state president of BJP A&N Islands Mr. Vishal Jolly has written to Lt. Governor, A&N Islands regarding enhancement of pay package to officials/staff of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). He mentioned in his letter that the present pay of MGNREGA’s officials is very low and the other staff are paid less than the pay of DRMs w.e.f. 01.01.2018 (1/30th Pay + DA). He also pointed out that, these staff spend travelling expenses from their packet to implement MGNREGA’s schemes and have helped A&N Administration to win National Award. He requested the Lt. Governor, A&N Islands for enhancement of pay package to MGNREGA’s officials/staff, considering their effort on implementing schemes at grassroot level and for them to lead a respectful life in the society.
