Rajnath Singh Approves Waiver for Casual Paid Labourers in BRO/GREF

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) and General Engineering Reserve Force (GREF) play a crucial role in constructing and maintaining roads in challenging terrains, often in remote and hazardous areas. The personnel employed in these organizations, known as Casual Paid Labourers (CPLs), work tirelessly under difficult conditions, facing risks to their lives and well-being.

In recognition of the sacrifices made by CPLs and the challenges they encounter, Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh has approved a significant measure to alleviate the burden on their families in case of unfortunate accidents resulting in fatalities. The waiver of the requirement to complete 179 working days for ex-gratia compensation will ensure that families receive financial assistance promptly, without being constrained by bureaucratic formalities.

The decision to waive the 179-day condition underscores the government’s commitment to supporting CPLs and their families during times of adversity. It acknowledges the invaluable contributions of CPLs to the nation’s infrastructure development and recognizes their service with compassion and empathy.

Furthermore, this waiver aligns with recent welfare initiatives approved by the Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh for CPLs, including a Group (Term) Insurance scheme, enhanced Funeral Assistance, and advance payment against ex-gratia compensation. These measures collectively aim to provide comprehensive support and security to CPLs and their families, ensuring their well-being and livelihoods are safeguarded.

Overall, Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh’s approval of the waiver reflects the government’s proactive approach towards addressing the needs of CPLs and underscores its commitment to their welfare and empowerment. By prioritizing the welfare of CPLs and their families, the government reaffirms its dedication to the well-being and dignity of all personnel serving in critical roles for the nation’s development and security.
