SUB- REQUEST FOR GRANT OF FNANCIAL RELIEFTO DAILY RATED MAZDOOR
WHO EXPIRED DUE TO CORONA WHILE IN SERVICE
WE ARE VERY SORRY TO BRING TO YOUR NOTICE THE PATHETIC SITUATION OF THE FAMILY OF DAILY RATED MAZDOOR WHO EXPIRED DUE TO CORONA EFFECT WHILE IN SERVICE. DUE TO HIS ATTENDING TO DUTIES ONLY HE WAS AFFECTED WITH CORONA.THE DETAILS ARE MENTIONED BELOW.
In Mail Business Centre of Howrah RMS (RMS WB Division) in Kolkata, a DRM (Daily rated Mazdoor) SRI. Prasenjit Mazumdar aged about 35 had died after unsuccessful treatment for covid-19. He was declared as dead in the Bandel City Hospital ON 20.07.2020. One more life of postal fraternity is lost! But this time it is a casual labourer! That adds to the pain!
At least the Department is committed to give 10 lakhs compensation and a job to a family member if the employee is regular! Good but what about the poor family of a casual labourer? The entire family is fully dependent on the earnings of the casual labourer. Now that the young casual
labourer is gone forever. It is the responsibility of Department to compensate & help his family by taking appropriate steps.
We hope that the Department should not stand on its so called principles that DRM casual labourers are not eligible to anything which is inhuman! DoP should consider on humanitarian grounds and come to compensate to at least to a lesser degree if not on equal footing to a regular staff, by giving the family some financial compensation and assure a job to that family! After all Sri.Mazumdar laid down his sweet life working for India Post!
All of us will salute the Postal Board for its humanitarian gesture if extended to his family.
We hope that the kind secretary will respond immediately and issue orders helping his family.
Immediate positive response and a line in reply will be solicited.
Thanking you, sir.
