Itagar, May 28: The Aruchal Pradesh NHM Employees Association (APNHMEA) has sought regularization of services of programme magement staff (PMS) who are working since several years under the tiol Health Mission (NHM).

Addressing media persons at Aruchal Press Club (APC) here today, association president Tadi Tadi while stating that around 784 PMS are working under different schemes of NHM under various capacities across the state since the launch of the mission. further added that unlike other technical staff of NHM like doctors, nurse, ANMs and GNMs, so far no regularization policy has been framed by the government of the PMS putting their future at stake.

“Since the launch of NHM scheme in Aruchal, the PMS have played crucial roles for success of the scheme, but in return, till date not even single staff has been regularized,” lamented Tad.

“Moreover, as most of the employees have crossed their age bar, so we urge Chief Minister Kalikho Pul to look into the matter and initiate steps to regularize/absorb the contractual PMS of NHM by creating adequate posts in the department of health,” he appealed.

Expressing resentment over the alleged non-responsive attitude of the state government despite the association having submitted several representations from time to time, APNHMEA general secretary Tade Gumja disclosed that had approached the previous government as well but got no response except assurances. “We also met MoS for Home Kiren Rijiju at New Delhi on September 8, 2014 and apprised him about the grievances of the PMS and submitted a memorandum to him,” informed Gumja

It was also informed that currently 784 PMS comprising of state consultant, district consultant, state fince mager, district fince mager etc are working under NHM and out of which 478 are engaged in RCH/NHM while 306 are under various tiol vertical programmes.
