Swara delivers wages but not correct rate nor compensation

Shivram Sonwani from Kachnar Adivasi Vikas Sanstha in Surguja in Chhattisgarh says after we raised the issue of non payment of NREGA wages on Swara thanks to intervention of Chief Secretary the laborers have got their due wages last week after a year. But the payment has been made at the rate of Rs 100 per day whereas the rate last year was Rs 122 and no payment has been made as compensation for late payment as per the law. He requests us to try for proper wages and the compensation. For more Sonwani ji can be reached at 08120040375
