He added that the increased wages would bring relief amongst the contract workers. On the other hand, Workers Union Leader Sharad Rao expressed happiness on NMMC’s decision and the efforts of the Guardian Minister. According to NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata around 3200 cleaning workers would be benefited with this decision and NMMC would have an additional cost of 7 crore every year.
And of course for the contract workers it was the day they had waited for years. While Gaurdian Minister Ganesh Naik has brought about huge relief for the contract cleaning workers on the occasion of Shahu Maharaj Jayanti, hopefully now the contractors too would do justice and ensure that the workers get the wages they sign for on paper.
