The Delhi government has announced that it will provide a substantial bonus of Rs 7,000 to Group B (Non-Gazetted) and Group C employees. This benevolent decision, aimed at acknowledging the hard work and dedication of government staff, is set to benefit approximately 80,000 employees. The initiative will cost the Delhi government a whopping Rs 56 crore.

A Diwali Gift from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi’s Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, took to social media to share the heartwarming news. In a tweet, he expressed his sentiments, “All the employees of our government are my family. In this festive month, we are giving a bonus of Rs 7,000 to Group B and Group C employees of the Delhi Government. Happy Diwali in advance to all the employees and their families.”

The bonus is a testament to the government’s acknowledgment of the essential role played by its employees in the development and progress of the city. Arvind Kejriwal praised the relentless dedication and hard work of the government staff, recognizing that their efforts have significantly contributed to transforming Delhi into a city of dreams.

A Token of Appreciation

This bonus announcement comes as a token of appreciation and gratitude for the unwavering commitment of Group B and Group C employees. The bonus amount, totalling Rs 7,000 per employee, is a welcome addition during the festive season and reflects the government’s commitment to the welfare and well-being of its workforce.

Prior Commitments to Employee Welfare

Arvind Kejriwal’s government has consistently demonstrated its commitment to employee welfare and has recently made significant strides in this regard. On November 1, the Chief Minister announced the regularization of jobs for many employees of the Delhi Municipal Corporation. This decision brought much-needed job security to 6,494 sanitation workers in the city.

In a separate move to further employee welfare, the Municipal Corporation approved the regularization of 5,000 sanitation workers in a meeting held on November 5. These measures not only reflect the government’s dedication to its employees but also add to the festive spirit and joy during the Diwali season.

As Diwali approaches, this bonus serves as a reminder of the government’s commitment to the welfare of its employees and their families, spreading joy and goodwill during the festival of lights.
