As Municipal Corporation Of Delhi Fails To Pay Salaries, Delhi Government Grants Aid Of Rs 1051 Crore To Pay MCD Employees

Addressing a digital press conference, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, “It has come to our notice that Municipal Corporation of Delhi, due to its in competence and corruption, has not been distributing salaries to its employees in the midst of a pandemic. It reflects very poorly on the MCD if they are unable to
even pay salaries to medical staff, doctors and nurses who are putting their lives on the line to save people in these unprecedented times. To cope and emerge from this pandemic, Delhi Government has issued assistance of ₹1051 crore for MCD, in such a manner that MCD can effectively disburse salaries to employees who have not
been able to receive it until now. We hope that MCD’s leadership will guarantee this assistance is not used for any other activities, not diverted in any way, but
used only to pay salaries of MCD employees involved in COVID-19 duty.”

Further, Dy CM Manish Sisodia added. “Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has ensured that despite the scarcity of resources Delhi is facing due to COVID-19, Delhi Government will aid and support all dedicated frontline workers who are on COVID duty, so that they are able to receive their salaries in a streamlined manner.”

Sisodia stated that total financial assistance earmarked for MCD is ₹1051 crores, out of which ₹366.9 crore will be given to East MCD, ₹432.8 crore to North MCD and ₹251.6 crore to South MCD. Reiterating statement of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Deputyy CM Manish Sisodia said, “We have to make sure that our frontline workers in
MCD are paid their due salaries on time, by any means.”
