Tripura Council for Child Welfare: 30 Nannies protest as they remain unpaid for 10 Months


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 12th January 2024:  In a distressing turn of events, thirty dedicated nannies employed across three children’s homes under the Tripura Council for Child Welfare staged a protest today, expressing their frustration over not receiving their salaries for a staggering 10 months. The demonstration unfolded in front of the Tripura Council for Child Welfare office adjacent to Bihar School, drawing attention to the financial hardships faced by these essential caregivers.

Sanjit Chakraborty, the general secretary of the Tripura Council for Child Welfare, candidly admitted that the nannies have not been receiving their rightful compensation. He revealed that the three orphanages operated by the council rely on project funding from the Department of Social Welfare and Social Education, Government of India. However, a sudden cessation in payments from the Indian government has exacerbated the crisis.

In response to the unfolding crisis, the State Government has promptly submitted a report to the Government of India, aiming to address the issue. However, both entities remain perplexed about the root cause of the payment disruption. Sanjit Chakraborty stated that he engaged in discussions with the officials of the concerned department of the state government, yet the problem persists, leaving the nannies in limbo.

As the standoff continues, thirty nannies grapple with mounting financial challenges, affecting not only their well-being but also their ability to support their families. The lack of clarity surrounding the sudden stoppage of government funds adds an additional layer of uncertainty, casting a shadow over the future of these dedicated caregivers and the children under their care. The Tripura Council for Child Welfare and government authorities are under increasing pressure to expedite a resolution and provide much-needed relief to those caught in the crossfire of bureaucratic challenges.
