Additionally, there is a centre manager, lawful personnel, a legal representative and also a counsellor (a woman police assistance police officer is likewise based at the centre). Since most workers have actually been unsettled for months in Andhra Pradesh, they are torn in between giving up and also wishing that the government will certainly pay them sooner or later. One Stop Centre at King George Hospital in Visakhapatnam  Why are the wages being postponed?
    The centre managers, that supervise of the corresponding centres in Nellore, Vizianagaram, and also Visakhapatnam, informed TNM that also after duplicated depictions to the job supervisors at the divisions, there has actually been no reaction. Shahanaz Shaikh, accountable of the Disha OSC at Nellore, claimed,“A few staff members have come to me with tears saying that they will not be able to continue at work because of the pressure at home. Women staff are coming to work, but they are being pushed back to their houses because of the delay in payment of salaries.”
    TNM attempted to call the authorities at the accounts area of the Ministry of Women and also Child Development inNew Delhi They notified that the areas have actually not sent out the endeavors and also documents list for the Single Nodal Account (SNA) based on the brand-new standards of theMinistry In September 2022, the MWCD provided brand-new guidelines for Mission Shakti, which raised the centre’s regular monthly financing from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.35 lakh while minimizing the variety of workers per centre from 18 to 13.

When some special medicines are required, we have to buy them with money from our pockets. There is a delay in not just the processing of salaries, but also these other bills.

    “The state government has several times boasted about the kind of welfare they are providing to the women of the state. There are hardly 250 female staff working at the OSC. Does the state have to wait for funds from the Union government all the time?” Mani asked, including that this is not the very first time the personnel are encountering thisproblem “When this issue first came up in 2021, we asked the centre administrators to send a representation and exert pressure on the Visakhapatnam collectorate office.
