Remuneration of self-employed mechanics in Odisha hiked by 62.5 percent

Bhubaneswar: In a significant move benefiting self-employed mechanics in Odisha, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has approved a substantial 62.5 percent increase in their remuneration.

As per a release from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), the remuneration for self-employed mechanics working in the gram panchayats of the state has been raised from Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 6,500.

Around 13,000 self-employed mechanics across the state will benefit from this move of the government.

This decision comes following requests and suggestions received from self-employed mechanics and representatives during the visit of Kartik Pandian, Chairman of 5T and Nabin Odisha, to various districts.

Self-employed mechanics play a crucial role in providing clean drinking water to villages across the state. Typically, two self-employed mechanics are deployed in each gram panchayat, diligently working on piped water supply, as well as the maintenance and repair of tube wells.
