Maharashtra gives Rs 41 cr Covid relief aid to construction workers

The Maharashtra labour commission extended the monetary benefits, giving around Rs 41 crore to over 66,000 construction workers and Rs 13 lakh to about 1,118 domestic help as a pandemic aid.

According to the official sources, nearly Rs 6,000 each were given to 66,000 construction site workers in three instalments during the Covid-19 pandemic after getting their online applications. Other allowances were given to the workers during the same period who registered with their board.

Besides the construction labours, the state labour commission also gave Rs 1,150 as Covid-19 allowance to about 1,118 domestic help who registered with their board.

Rajdeep Dhurve, the assistant labour commissioner, told the media that the monetary benefits were directly transferred to their bank accounts after their applications were accepted.

He further said that the government decided to dole out the benefits to the laborers and domestic help as they are highly affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns.

He has urged the construction labourers and domestic help to register themselves with their boards through the labour commissioner's office. Many other benefits were also given by the state governments as a monetary relief for marriage, housing construction, maternity and others.
