‘Use 52,000cr cess fund to help labourers’

NEW DELHI: The Centre on Tuesday asked all states to dip into the Rs 52,000 crore construction cess fund and directly transfer funds through the direct benefit transfer mechanism to help labourers in the sector.
In a letter to CMs of all states, junior labour and employment minister Santosh Gangwar said state chief secretaries must ensure the protection of jobs and wages of workers in private and government firms.
He advised them “to transfer funds in the account of construction workers through DBT (direct benefit of transfer) mode from cess fund collected by the Labour Welfare Boards under the building and other construction workers (regulation of employment and condition of Services) Act”.
