‘Maha government will give job to the heirs of scavengers’
Mumbai: Heirs of sanitation workers in Maharashtra can now succeed their kin in steady government jobs, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Sunday.
He also said that the benefit will extend to the “husband or wife, son or daughter, daughter-inlaw or son-in-law, widowed daughter, sister, divorced daughter or sister, abandoned daughter or sister, unmarried educated daughter or unmarried educated sister, grandson or granddaughter” of sweepers and manual scavengers.
In the case of an unmarried sweeper, his or her brother or sister may also be considered. If an heir is unavailable, the job will then fall open to any person who promises in writing to take care of the sanitation worker, in keeping with the Mang Lad Committee recommendations.
However, the successor has to be aged between 18 and 45 years, and will be appointed as a Class III or Class IV staffer based on their qualifications.
