Pune: The civic administration has come up with a proposal to give a one-time reward of Rs 50,000 to its employees for undergoing a vasectomy after one girl child. Earlier, the corporation had proposed to give two increments to employees in 2011. Now, the corporation wants to scrap the earlier proposal and introduce one-time reward money to employees.
The administration has tabled this proposal in the Standing Committee. As per the proposal, the corporation will give the reward under the ‘Ladki Lek’ scheme of social welfare development. Currently, the corporation deposits Rs 50,000 in a nationalised bank in the name of the girl whose family undergoes a vasectomy after having one girl child. Based on that, the corporation wants to give a one-time reward of Rs 50,000 to their employees, instead of giving two increments in their salary.
While speaking to Sakal Times, Anil Muley, Deputy Commissioner of General Administration department, said, “Earlier, there was a proposal of giving two increments to employees. Now, we have tabled a proposal to scrap the former and implement a new proposal for a one-time reward. Actually, around 20 employees were applicable for two increments but the scheme was stopped in 2011. Now, they will be applicable for a one-time reward.
In 2011, on the lines of the State government’s proposal to give increment to their own employees for undergoing a vasectomy after one girl child, the corporation had implemented the scheme in 2011. However, suddenly the corporation came to know that the scheme was not sanctioned by the State government. They issued a circular to withdraw the scheme and recover the amount from the salary of beneficial employees in 2014. According to that, the corporation recovered two increments from their employees’ salaries.
