Title: Need to provide funds to Central Institute of Fisheries Education, Andheri (West), Mumbai.


SHRI GAJANAN KIRTIKAR (MUMBAI NORTH WEST): The Central Institute of Fisheries Education,  Andheri (West), Mumbai comes under my Mumbai North West constituency. Nearly 133 workers are serving in the Institute for the last 20 years only on a contract basis. In the beginning of the New Year about 20 workers were relieved from their jobs. Then, I paid a visit to the Institute on 12-1-2018 and discussed the matter with the Director and the Vice-Chancellor in my capacity as a local Member of Parliament. I came to know from them that the Institute was in need of 200 permanent workers as on date. For want of sufficient funds, the Institute is forced to hire workers on a contract basis. In fact, the contractor is gaining and hard, honest and sincere workers are losing. Presently 133 workers working in the Institute are local people and majority of them are from fishermen community only. The Institute has, therefore, requested for a financial assistance of Rs. 2.50 crore for regularising these workers.

          In view of this situation, I urge upon the Government of India to absorb all the 133 workers on a permanent basis by sanctioning the above amount on a compassionate ground.
