Chief Minister Jharkhand Hemant Soren allowed the Border Roads Organization (BRU) to hire more than 11,800 state employees for important national projects, including projects near the Chinese border in Ladakh, after receiving written guarantees for their welfare.
Jharkhand also plans to sign the first such memorandum of understanding with the BWA to ensure the welfare of employees in any future employment, sources in Jharkhand’s Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said.
We are committed to the welfare of our workers, and our tribesmen have served the nation for a long time and have pushed its limits. We are prepared to send our employees for national security, but we will not compromise their honour, their social security rights, their benefits and their dignity, according to Soren.
National security is our priority, and at the same time we give priority to the honour, dignity and rights of our workers in the service of the nation, he said.
The Memorandum of Understanding drawn up by the CMO and the State Ministry of Labour will create an institutional framework which will guarantee the benefits and social security of the civil servants who will work in the high mountain projects of the BRE, according to the sources of the CMO.
The 11,815 workers requested by the BWA for recruitment are needed for Operation Vijayak in Ladakh (about 8,000 workers are needed), the Shiwalik project in Uttarakhand, the Deepak project in Himachal Pradesh, the Mayak project in Jammu and Kashmir, they said.

DBRO has informed the Government of Jharkhand that it will sign the Memorandum of Understanding after the Ministry of Defence has approved it, according to sources, mentioning a letter from DBRO to the Chief Secretary of Dzharkhand, Arun Ecki.
Chief Minister Soren allowed the BRS to admit 11,815 state workers after receiving written assurances from the BRS that workers’ rights would be guaranteed, sources told the CMO.
The permit is granted on condition that the BWA registers as an employer under the Inter-State Migrant Workers Act 1979 and hires all employees directly from Jharkhand instead of via an escort system.
Tribesmen in the state of Santal Pargana have been at the forefront of nation building since the early 1970s.
The ORO has set up a system of Mates – Local Network Contact Point making it twice a year in April-May and then in October-November for the winter in difficult conditions in Lech, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh workers.
Despite the legal provisions of the BREs on the transfer of workers’ wages on the basis of fixed qualifications, miners acted as intermediaries and migrant workers always received a lower or partial amount, depending on the miners, according to the BREs’ sources, adding that there was no protection mechanism in the event of a dangerous incident or accident which would lead to the death or partial disability of a worker.
In connection with all these matters, the Prime Minister sent several letters to ORO headquarters and exchanged them. BRS then gave the employees full guarantees on important aspects such as wages, housing, rations, clothing and trauma allowances, depending on the source.
The ORO reported the revised CLA negotiation plan for all categories of employees – unskilled, low-skilled and skilled – and a wage increase of approximately 15 to 20 percent, which will apply from the 10th month of employment. The month of June comes into force, sources in the CMO.
According to a PRB report of 5. Every effort has been and is being made to ensure that the interests of migrant workers are not harmed.
The ERO will comply with the provisions of the Labour Migration Act 1979 … and the recruitment will take place in the following years after proper registration and signature of the Memorandum of Understanding, it has been reported.
The Prime Minister is also considering the possibility of instituting special health insurance at a rate of Rs.10-15 per employee in addition to what the BWA offers, according to sources at the CMO.
The approval of the BWA comes in the context of the massive operation carried out by the Jharkhand Government to facilitate the return of its workers blocked in various parts of the territory of the Union of Ladakh as a result of the blockade provoked by KOWID-19.
More than 200 labour migrants from Jharkhand will be transported in four transports from Leh to Jharkhand this week.
