Recent directions issued by the Government of India wherein the government assured to credit certain amount for certain account holders including labour class, farmers, casual labour beside others had generated hope among these supporting staff in whose rescue comes J&K High Court.

Speaking to Early Times, the aggrieved informed that former DC Kishtwar after giving patient hearing to the concerns expressedd by the visiting MGNREGA supporting staff directed ACD Kishtwar for appropriate and necessary action beside also assuring them that he will render all possible help to them in addressing their long pending issue, but even after several months— they didn’t receiv a single penny and urged upon the government to issue clear cut directions to ACD Kishtwar to get their salaries released adding that they too suffer due to non-availability of financial support at the time when whole India is under lockdown.
It is pertinent to mention that DC Kishtwar vide letter No. ARA/K/19/022-23 Dated 8-06-2019 directed ACD Kishtwar to implement the court order Dated 11-3-2019 in SWP No. 2033/2018, 1645/2018, 1719/2018, 1945/2018, IA No. 01/2018, SWP No. 2112/2018, IA No. 1/2018 titled Yasir Arafat & others vs State of Jammu and Kashmir & others with regard to release of the salaries of hundreds of GRS including those of Kishtwar District who had been denied the salaries since last nearly one and half year on the grounds that they have not been appointed by following the proper procedure.
