Entrepreneurs, artisans, NHM employees call on LG Mishra


Leh: A delegation comprising entrepreneurs, artisans, who participated in the Maharashtra International Trade Expo (MiTEX) 2024 at Mumbai, led by Tsering Chorol, called on the Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, Brigadier (Dr) BD Mishra (Retd), at the LG Secretariat on Friday.

Secretary to LG, Ravinder Kumar, IAS and Director, Industries and Commerce, Ladakh, Shiekh Nazir, JKAS were present in the meeting.

Chorol apprised the LG that they had participated in the MiTEX 2024 at Mumbai and informed that the sale of their products at the expo was not satisfactory.

She also informed that their shops were allocated in the last section of the expo venue which led to less footfall of customers. She requested incentives to help mitigate the costs incurred by them for their participation in the expo.

The LG directed Director, Industries, Ladakh to discuss the matter with the Principal Secretary, Industries, Sanjeev Khirwar, IAS, and examine the matter.

A delegation comprising contractual employees engaged under National Health Mission (NHM) led by Mohd Hussain called on the LG at the LG Secretariat. Secretary to the LG, Ravinder Kumar, IAS and Director Health Services, Dr Motup Dorje were also in the meeting.

Hussain informed the LG about the performance-based incentive and requested him to review the performance-linked payment for various programmes to the Primary Health Care team at Health and Wellness Centers.

He apprised the LG of the committee constituted by the previous Mission Director, NHM to review the demand for the revision of performance-linked incentives for NHM workers like them.

Hussain also requested the LG’s intervention in helping them get the full loyalty bonus after the completion of three years of service in the NHM. He further requested the LG’s intervention so that they are paid the same salary as the NHM employees in Delhi.

The LG assured the delegates led by Hussain that he would look into the recommendation of the Committee constituted by the former MD NHM.

He stated that the NHM employees would be paid the loyalty bonus entitled to them. He also asked Director Health Services to look into their issues and take necessary measures.
