Dimapur, June 21 (EMN): The department of Labour has informed that the government of Nagaland would provide financial assistance to construction workers who have been affected by the ongoing pandemic and the subsequent lockdown.

It said the crisis has caused huge displacement of daily wage workers and led to loss of earning, thus causing extreme hardship.

“In order to assist such workers and their families, the Central government desires that the respective governments of the states and union territories provide adequate financial assistance to such identified category of workers,” the update from DIPR stated.

“The government of Nagaland, therefore, has decided to transfer INR 2,000 (Rupees two thousand only) each to the bank accounts of all the building and other construction workers registered under the Labour Department. Till date, the Labour Department has registered 30,797 beneficiaries,” it added.

Informing that the amount could be transferred to only those eligible whose bank accounts are active, the department has appealed to all the beneficiaries with dormant bank account to immediately activate to enable seamless transaction of the benefit.

The amount will be debited from the Cess Fund, it was informed.

“The Department of Labour has worked out all technical details of the registered beneficiaries and transfer of the benefits has started successfully through DBT,” informed the update.
