Bengaluru: The State Health Department has relieved 6,463 contract workers who were hired on a contract basis after the outbreak of the Covid – 19 pandemic in the State two years ago.

These workers include Ayurveda doctors, lab technicians, swab collection personnel, etc.

Two years ago, when the State began reeling under Covid – 19 pandemic the State Government hired these staff as the government health facilities were facing an acute shortage of human resources.

Even though these staff held protests for the last few weeks demanding extension of services on humanitarian grounds, Health Department rejected their demand.

All these staff were relieved from their duty on Friday April 1 after paying their monthly honorarium.
