Chennai Man Knocks Door Of High Court After Working For Rs.2 Per Day For 17 Years

Published on 27 May, 2017 at 4:00 pm By

We complain about being underpaid and overburdened by work. All of us agree that with each passing year, the cost of living in any city touches new heights. In a metro city, especially, a stable source of good income is important for survival. However, this story is a nightmare for working classes in this time and age.

A man in Chennai has been working for Rs.2 per day for past 17 years. He was working as a part-time sweeper at the Vellodu sub-centre for Animal Husbandry Department of Tamil Nadu. He has now filed a petition seeking regularization of his services.

Ravi Kumar joined the Animal Husbandry Department of Tamil Nadu in June 2000. He was assured that his services would be regularized after two years. However, the promises faded away with time. He has contended that:



I was shocked when a notification was issued by the department to fill up vacancies in the post of assistants. My representation to consider my name was not taken up.

The department filed a counter affidavit blaming the employment exchange for not sponsoring his name.

Merely Rs.60 a month is nothing even when it comes to fulfilling bare minimum. And if a person is already tossing between part time jobs, then making ends meet is a struggle. Ravi says that it is “inhuman on the part of the government” to keep someone waiting for so long. Tough times end only when we take a stand, and Ravi Kumar is finally doing that.
