Compensate anganwadi workers uniformly: Panel 7.1.2018 DNA: Popular News
A parliamentary panel has asked the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development to bring about an uniform honorarium for Anganwadi workers (AWW) and Anganwadi helpers (AWH) across states and Union Territories. The workers in states like Delhi and Maharashtra have gone on a strike over low wages, with the Delhi government ceding to their demands by increasing their wages. A department-related standing committee of the Rajya Sabha, headed by BJP MP Satyanarayan Jatiya, in its action report of the ministry also stressed on a proactive role by the ministry with slow performing states and UTs on priority basis. "The Committee feels that AWWs and AWHs play a very important role in rendering quality services in the AWCs and the honorarium being paid to them presently is on the lower side. Further, State/UTs pay different amounts as honorarium. It is the committee's concerted opinion that AWWs and AWHs should be compensated properly," the panel noted. The committee also said that in states like Telangana, ...
