Demanding pay hike, the non-executive staff of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has threatened to go on a ‘complete shutdown’ on Monday.
The DMRC employees are demanding a pay hike for the staff and reservation of protest rights for the employees.
Secretary of the staff council, Anil Kumar Mahatohas said protesting non-executive staffs of the DMRC have started sit-ins at different stations, including Dwarka, Yamuna Bank, Badarpur, Shahdara, Qutub Minar and Vishwavidyalaya.
Staff members claim that their pay scale was supposed to be revised back in 2015, however, “Now, more than two years later, the salary has seen no change”.
Responding to the employees, a DMRC spokesperson said, “In the face of the fact that the recommendations of the Third Pay Commission have been accepted by the government and orders are to be issued anytime, it is not an opportune moment to press for their demand for revision of pay scales at this juncture. All pay-related issues shall be dealt with shortly after issuing of orders by the government.”
He added that the actions taken by the DMRC against its employees were “purely incidental to the individuals and the attempt… to push for their personal agenda, and to invoke others to cause disruption is uncalled for.”
Earlier, DMRC had issued a show-cause notice to some of its employees and canceled their annual increment for holding a protest against the rail corporation.
