PUNE: The Maharashtra Rajya Gharelu Kamgar Mandal, a State government board constituted for the welfare of domestic help, will begin registering names of maid servants from Monday.


Those who register their names, will be entitled to receive benefits of various schemes implemented by the board. The board has been constituted after a few decades of struggle by domestic help who had been pressing for their rights. It is estimated that there are around 15 lakh domestic help in the State and the registration will initially be taken up in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Nashik, Aurangabad, Solapur and Thane.


Three decades back, in February 1980, the servants had struck work following which they had obtained a wage hike ranging between Rs 5 to Rs 20. The domestic helps are faced with several problems including the issue of their wages and holidays.


In Pune, the office of the additional labour commissioner in Wakdewadi will begin registering such maid servants from Shivajinagar from Monday. It has been proposed to rope in the Pune Municipal Corporation’s regional ward offices to conduct the registration in other parts of the city.


Labour commissioner Sanjay Deshmukh held a meeting on Saturday to chalk out modalities for the registration. The meeting was attended by board member Sunil Shinde and additional labour commissioner T G Cholke. Deshmukh said the domestic helps will be provided identity cards.

The Maharashtra Rajya Gharelu Kamgar Mandal will work for the welfare of domestic maids but what about the welfare of the employers who are also harrassed by the maids by their unprofessional behavior and unreasonable pay demands. I would really appreciate if the Mandal can work for the benefit of both the parties and have golden middle which is in the best interest of the employer as well as the domestic maids.

It is a good activity by the Government of Maharashtra. I am from Thane. I tried to find the locations for Thane but I was not able to find. Any online information available on this. I have two maids with me who can benefit with this in turn even their friends also. Here there few self declared samajsevaks who are taking disadvantage of the nonadvertisement of the Govt. and charging these poor people money just to register their names. If anyone can provide this info it would be good. Thank You.
