>DCs for salary hike, health cards for public servants

>DEPUTY commissioners (DCs) from across the country have strongly suggested that the government go beyond the ongoing safety net programmes to provide more support for the poor, the worst hit by the price spiral. (Read full report)
The government, in reply, said that in addition to programmes like vulnerable group feeding (VGF), vulnerable group development (VGD), test relief, food-for-work, money-for-work and open market sale (OMS), more assistance might be offered for those in abject poverty.
Discourses like this on the food crisis dominated the three-day annual conference of the DCs that concluded today.
The district administrators have been directed to ensure constant monitoring of markets, coordination between administrative wings at field level, and supervision of development work. Besides, they were asked to do everything necessary to see the farmers do not face harassment during Boro procurement.
The DCs, on the other hand, have called for re-introduction of ration, a hike in salaries and provision of medical cards for the public servants.
They have also asked the government to fill the vacancies at field level, arrange more training for local government staff and remove “irregularities and corruption” in disbursement of agri-loans.
