ASHA’s from across Maharashtra Gather in Mumbai Demanding government's attention and better pay

14, Jun 2019 | CJP Team

Recognised as Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs), these women are suffering because despite their hard work and critical role in improving the health and hygiene of people in villages across India they are not recognized as government employees and are grossly underpaid. Barring a few states, ASHA workers do not get fixed salaries, but incentives for every job they do. They are supposed to get a combined sum of these incentives at the end of every month, but payments are delayed, sometimes by months, plus the absence of a fixed pay, lack of Provident funds,etc have brought the ASHA’s to the streets of Mumbai on June 4th to demand the respect they deserve.
