Don’t let middlemen misuse labour cards: Siddaraju

Labour cards issued by the labour department in the state are getting misused due to middlemen, said members of Construction Workers Association.

Addressing a press meet here in the city on Sunday, president of Karnataka Rajya Bharathamata Kattada Karmikara Sangha, J Siddaraju said, “The construction workers are given labour cards by Department of Labour. The card holder gets various benefits from the government including Rs 50,000 for the family members of the labour if he dies while on duty. The middlemen are misusing the scheme and even after waiting for 90 days, labourers are not getting the cards.”

“The state government must take the issue seriously and ease the process of getting labour cards and put a break to fake cards and middlemen,” he added.

City president of Karnataka Rajya Bharathamata Kattada Karmikara Sangha Puttaswamy, Secretary Paramesh, Prakash, Parashuram and others were present.
