MUMBAI: Link workers working in the Mira-Bhayander region have every reason to rejoice.

The civic administration has raised the salary of the 130 women link workers from Rs 700 a month to a monthly Rs 3,500. Congress corporator and former leader of the house in the MBMC, Prabhat Patil had proposed an hike under rule "J" of the MBMC bylaws. It was approved unanimously in the general body meeting of the civic house.

The link workers were appointed in 2007 by the municipality on a contract basis under the government funded Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) programme, a scheme aimed to reduce the infant and maternal mortality rate.

They were paid Rs 500 each. The amount was hiked by Rs 200 in 2010. Since then link workers had been demanding a pay hike. The proposal for a hike was placed before the civic administration last year too. But it was rejected for lack of funds. The link workers assist women in pre and post pregnancy care.

They visit civic hospitals and help pregnant women to avail the benefits available to them from the municipality and government. They also conduct door-to-door survey for diseases like malaria, dengue, distribute medicines and provide polio doses to children.
