This morning, the Deputy Chief Minister conducted a surprise inspection at the Labour office and investigated the complaints. The complaints ranged from not following proper procedure to negligence on behalf of labour office workers who used photographs of women instead of men in the registration documents. In another case, irregularity in the registration of a worker who physically visited the office but used a previously photographed image instead of a live photograph from the visit itself.
Sisodia directed the labour officers to finish all the work related to registration, renewal and providing welfare benefits to construction workers on time. “When the Delhi government has made comprehensive plans for the welfare of city’s construction workers, then all the deserving workers should be able to avail their benefits. No negligence will be tolerated in this matter,” he said.
