Braving intense spell of rainfall, thousands of members of Odisha Government Contractual Employees Association (OGCEA) on Sunday staged a massive demonstration in Bhubaneswar.

The OGCEA members are staging dharna at Lower PMG against the contractual appointment rule of the Odisha government. The members of the association demand that the state government should abolish the contractual appointment rules which were implemented in 2013.

Under the system, a contractual employee is appointed after clearing the necessary exam, tests conducted by OPSC. Later, they are engaged as contractual government employee for a period of six years which entitles them to a meagre salary compared to the regular counterparts, allege the employees.

“The six years of contractual service is not added to the original service period for which the promotion is delayed by six years. The contractual employees are also not getting DA, HRA and other benefits. Under such circumstances and amid the price hike of essential commodities, the contractual employees suffer the harshest,” said a demonstrator.

The Odisha Government Contractual Employees Association (OGCEA) has also demanded implementation of one rule for all the government employees.

“We are demanding equal pay for equal work as the contractual employees also work as the regular employees,” said a senior member of the association
