|NHM employees demand job regularisation|
GUWAHATI, Aug 27 - The All Assam NHM Medical and Paramedical Employees Association on Thursday sent a memorandum to the Mission Director NHM, Assam seeking regularisation of their jobs and fulfilment of other demands.
The association stated in the memorandum that since the medical and paramedical employees of NHM, Assam got their jobs under NHM after passing written as well as oral interviews as per government norms, hence the government should initiate steps for regularising the experienced staff in posts lying vacant in the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Assam.
The association also called for age relaxation since many employees serving under NHM have crossed the upper age limit required for regular government jobs. It further urged the government to take immediate steps to revise the NHM employees’ pay scale as per the Seventh Pay Commission.
