The Multi-purpose Healthworkers(Male) is a designation/post in H&FW Dept. of Odisha Govt.Their association is BSS(Bahumukhi Swasthyakarmi Sangha),Odisha. There are two types of contractual post i.e. first regular contractual(means on ORV Act) and second is purely contractual(means in a mission/project).
We here discussing about the first type. These MPHW(M)s have been appointed on regular vacancy of Health & Family welfare department,Govt. of Odisha with a consolidation salary Rs.5200/- only which is the basic pay-scale of this post. The Educational Qualification of this post is Diploma IN Pharmacy.
In odisha the first phase of contractual appointment had been begun since 1st October 2005. Now there are approximately 1600 numbers of MPHW(M) are working in various health Sub-centers/PHC/CHC/Urban Health Centers with a consolidated pay of Rs.5200/- per month. Rather I want to inform you there are only a few numbers of old regular MPHW(M)(approx. 250 nos) remained. Here I would like to inform you that the MPHW(M)s who have already completed six years of contractual service, are not regularized yet.
But the other para-medical staffs like Pharmacists, Radiographers, Lab.technician,Staff nurses are being regularized after six years of contractual service in ORV Act. And also the MPHW(F)/ANM are already being appointed directly to their post with regular pay scale.So there should be equal consideration for equal work. We have been requesting the government repeatedly,but the government is responding us with poor attention/delay. So we have founded this association named as Bahumukhi Swastyakarmi (Purusha) Sangathan,Odisha to achieve our objectives mentioned in above matters and to make a strong union.
