Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has issued directions for the release of Diwali bonus of sanitation employees of East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) soon.

The move came after a delegation of sanitation workers recently met the chief minister and apprised him about their Diwali bonus being pending since 2015. EDMC was unable to release their bonus due to funds crunch.

“The Chief Minister has directed release of Diwali bonus worth around Rs 8.5 crore of safai karamcharis of EDMC. The bonus was pending since 2015,” an official said.

Delhi Commission for Safai Karamcharis (DCSK) had last week brought this matter to the notice of the CM after receiving grievances over non-payment of salary and bonus.

Till May 26, Delhi government has released Rs 614.41 crore to the three municipal corporations in the city for the first quarter of 2016-17.

Government has released Rs 324.77 crore to NDMC, Rs 118.81 crore to SDMC and Rs 170.83 crore to EDMC.
