The Commissioner (FW) and Spl.Secretary, Govt of West Bengal
GN-29 Block, Sector-V, Salt Lake City,
Sub: - Prayer for enhancement of monthly remuneration of Computer Assistants
of SRI Project under RCH-II
Most respectfully we beg to state that we are the members of RCH-II (NRHM) contractual staff, we were appointed to the post of Computer Assistant vide SFWO & Jt. Director of Health Services Memo No. H/SFWB/286/2005/368(55) dated 26/10/2005, we were appointed to the post of Computer Assistant (on Contractual Basis) under the control of District Health & Family Welfare Samity, (RCH-II) of all Districts in a consolidated salary of Rs. 3500/- p.m. We joined this post almost before 2 and Half years ego and since then we have been working at District Family Welfare Bureau, in all districts with full satisfaction of our superiors.
Sir, monthly remuneration of Rs. 3500/- is very meager in these hard days and it is hardly possible to defray our family expenses. Though 2.5 years have been elapsed, no enhancement of salary has been made. In this connection it may not be out of place to mention that the remuneration of Computer Assistant was decided as 7000/- consolidated per month by the Govt. But in most of the Districts the post was split into two by the local authority and as a result the remuneration of the Computer Assistant was fixed as 3500/- per month for each Computer Assistant. Though in some of the Districts ( Murshidabad, Uttar Dinajpur, South 24 Parganas) there is One Computer Assistant in SRI (RCH/NRHM) project at DFWB Wings, getting 7000/- per month.
Sir, as the category and qualifications are same with other contractual staffs in Health Sectors, we are getting at least amount i.e. 3500/- per month. Where as the monthly contractual remuneration of 2nd A.N.M.s (Madhyamik Pass) are 7000/-, Block Accounts Managers (Graduate in Commerce) are 8000/-, Lady Counselor (Graduate with Social Science) are 6500/-, Block Data Entry Operator (Graduate with 1 Year Diploma in Computer Application ) are 4000/-. Moreover in recent past the remuneration of Block Data Entry Operator has been increased Rs.4000/- per month to Rs. 5000/- per month (order no. ………..) which may not be out of place to mention.
Hence, we would like to draw your kind attention to the fact that, in District level we two Computer Assistants do all kind of report collections and compilations of all ongoing programmes under RCH & NRHM under the close supervision of District Statistical Manager. Further, all kinds of official letters, monthly cash analysis, pay bill and related all official works of CMOH office has been prepared by us through computer, which is increasing day to day. Simultaneously the workload of us is increasing.
Sir, as the nature of job & qualifications are same with all other categories and particularly workload in the Family Welfare Bureau is heavy and also being 2.5 years senior we have been drawing Rs.3500/-p.m. The price of all consumers commodities are rising every day. It is being very hard to meet the expenditure of fuel, foodstuff and medicines.
Sir, we have prayed before for enhancement of our monthly salary and the same was forwarded by our authority (Respective CMOHs) several times to your Honour but no enhancement of our monthly contractual remuneration has been made till to date.
In view of the above, we would fervently pray to your good self to kindly consider our prayer sympathetically so that Rs. 7000/- per Computer Assistant per month may be allotted as our Salary which was mentioned previously in order memo no. H/SFWB/286/2005/368(55) dated 26/10/2005 and for this act of kindness we shall remain grateful to you.
