The Madhya Pradesh Government decision of not absorbing the Anganwadi staff in regular service as government class three and class four employee is an act of gross injustice to them and their outright exploitation.
There are rendering great social service in education health, mid-day meals, self help group at the grass root level of vital importance.
They are actually doing the government job than to the government is denying them the basic facilities of regular pay scales dearness allowances provident fund pension, transfer, medical benefits etc. There are being paid honorarium of Rs. 5000 per month to Anganwadi workers and 2500 to helpers there.
The State Government must help them by absorbing as permanent government employees with all the facilities. For all practical purposes their deserve it.
What a contrast the Modi Government has announced its intention of providing minimum salary of Rs. 18,000 to the government staff but Anganwadi staff being paid megre amount Rs. 5000 and Rs. 2500. No one can live on such a low payments.
