Unregulated Employment Even After 35 Years, Assam Man Demands Nod to Euthanasia | Guwahati News

GUWAHATI: An employee responsible for Assam government labor, whose labor has not been regularized even after 35 years, has written to President Ram Nath Kovind, Governor and Chief Justices of the Supreme and High Court Gauhati’s court to allow him euthanasia on his retirement date of May 30.
Dulal Bora joined the state public works department in 1987 as a call-out worker in Nagaon Division. He became an assistant and is currently a section assistant in the same division but his employment has not yet been regularized.
“I am still a workload employee and if my employment is not regularized before I retire, I will not be entitled to a pension. What should I do then? to end my life and that is why I have requested euthanasia authorization at the highest levels,” Bora told TOI from his home in Nagaon.
He said he was fighting for justice and not just for himself. “There are hundreds of employees in charge of the job and if I get justice, others will get it too,” he added.
Bora said he annually submits requests to the department for regularization of his work. “I don’t remember when I submitted the first application. The last one was on October 22, 2021 and in response to that on May 11 of this year, the department informed me that my job would not be regularized,” said said Bora.
On May 11, an assistant department secretary, in a letter to Bora (a copy of which is with TOI), informed him that, pursuant to a 2017 high court order, that the appeal roll, the workload and casual workers are “not entitled to regularization of their services with consequent benefits such as retirement and since you are a workload employee, you are not entitled to any retirement benefits.”
Bora said: “The Supreme Court in February this year upheld an order from the High Court of Gujarat, ordering the government to pay the pension benefits to an ad hoc employee who retired after more than 30 years. of services (SL/2022 in State of Gujarat and others against Talsibhai Dhanjibhai Patel)”.
In 2018, the Supreme Court legally sanctioned passive euthanasia in a landmark verdict, allowing patients’ “living wills” to be withdrawn from medical support if they fall into an irreversible coma.
