By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : I have filed appeal before FAA and deputy secretary UDD as PIO failed to inform me under section 4(I) (a) (b) (c) (d) RTI Act the information and reasons under section 4(1) (d) for not taking action on as per directions issued in WP Nos 201021-022/201 to regularize the services of daily wage sweepers scavengers or purakarmikas either working on outsource or through contractors within six months from date of order in WP Nos 201021-022/2015 (S-RES) dated 5-06-20155 (S-RES) dated 5-06-2015 within 30 days. It is directed by HKHC in WP Nos 201021-022/2015 (s-res) dated 5-06-2015to all commissioners of BBMP ,city corporations of Tumkur Shivamogga , Vijayapura Mngalore Belgaum Bellary Davangere Huballi-Dharwad Kalburgi and Mysuru are directed to take appropriate and immediate steps to regularize the services of daily wade sweepers scavengers or purakarmikas either working on out sorce or through contractors wthin six months from date of order. Discussion on abolishing contract labor or temporary employment for pourakarmikas had begun after the civic body in Haliyal in Uttar Kannada district regularised the services of its pourakarmikas following a High Court order. "We should remove the word temporary from the labour force's lexicon. The pourakarmikas should be taken as regular employees from the time they join work,” The exploitation of pourakarmikas at the hands of the contractors was so rampant that immediate measures should be taken to end the contract system.

Few of the legal experts state that Uamadevi SC order is not applicable to pourakarmikas as they have completed more than 240 days of their service and in some cases they have completed more than 10 yearsof service in contract labour.The Supreme Court ruling says that daily wagers who have worked for at least 240 days in a calendar year are entitled to be regularised An earlier judgment by the Constitution Bench said that daily wage employees had no right to seek regularization.Justice A.R. Lakshmanan and Justice Loleshwar Singh Panta said that daily wagers could not claim regularization if they had not worked for at least 240 days in a calendar year. And in recent order It is directed by HKHC in WP Nos 201021-022/2015 (s-res) dated 5-06-2015to all commissioners of BBMP ,city corporations of Tumkur Shivamogga , Vijayapura Mngalore Belgaum Bellary Davangere Huballi-Dharwad Kalburgi and Mysuru are directed to take appropriate and immediate steps to regularize the services of daily wade sweepers scavengers or purakarmikas either working on out sorce or through contractors wthin six months from date of order.
