Guards Deprived, Government Schools In Delhi At Risk

News Information

Two surveys of security guards belonging to 60 government schools in east Delhi and RTI replies regarding benefits not received by them have sent alarm bells ringing. At stake is the security of schools and over 3.3 lakh children.The security guards in these schools are allegedly being paid just 40% of the salary to which they are entitled, yet made to stay on duty beyond eight hours. They are not being given provident fund and insurance as guaranteed under the contract. And, some of them have been caught allegedly selling school property to make the extra buck.
A majority of the guards in the surveys-conducted in 2013 and 2014-claim to get just Rs 4,000 a month. Although their employers were issued contracts by the directorate of education on condition that the guards would have a provident fund and insurance scheme, these were never made available.

An NGO, Lakshya, conducted the two surveys, the last in June 2014. Around 150 guards filled questionnaires with queries on educational qualification, salaries, duty hours, permanent addresses and whether the security personnel are being provided provident fund and insurance. The security guards were also asked about mode of payment-whether electronic clearing service or cheques.
After the survey results were analyzed in 2013, the organization lodged a complaint to DoE. In response, its caretaking branch in March wrote to the contractors asking for documents related to address, contact details, EPF and ESI account numbers stating that it has come to the notice of the department that full wages, ESI and PF are not being given to the security guards.
"Following that letter, our NGO decided to do the survey again to see if there has been any improvement in the situation. We simultaneously filed RTIs to cross-check our survey findings. No action seems to have been taken. The guards continue to be deprived and in such a situation the first casualty will be the security of the schools and its students," said Sanju of Lakshya.
