  2. सभी राज्‍यों के आईसीपीएस स्‍टॉफ को एकजूट होकर अपनी सेलरी इन्‍क्रीमेन्‍ट को लेकर प्रमुख सचिव आईसीपीएस नई दिल्‍ली में आवेदन देना चाहिए और अपनी बालकों के साथ आईसीपीएस स्‍टॉफ के हित में पॉलिसी को रिवाइस कराने हेतु कोशिश की जाना चाहिए । हमने राज्‍य सरकार से कई बार पहल करने की कोशिश की लेकिन हमें निराशा ही मिली
    अपनी वेतन 2014 से आज दिनांक तक एक रूपये भी नहीं बढ़ा और न ही हमें स्‍थाईकर्मी का दर्जा दिया गया । हमें इसके लिए केन्‍द्र सरकार से अपने अधिकारों और हित के लिये संघर्ष करना चाहिए ।

  3. we are working under ICPS (CWC & JJB) Assistant cum data entry operators but salaries are very low present scenario

  4. The Childline have a part of ICPS structure. But the system is not developed. The 1098 service is a 24×7 for care and protection of the children. it is a fine initiate. But sorry to say that very poor salary provide to childline staff. No vehicle facility for rescued children. Budget part is very poor. So request to Government please look after the matter then the childline service is progress. Staff is encourage and they are working properly 24 hours for the children. Childline staff is very fast for the children.

  5. Only CENTRAL PROJECT SUPPORT UNIT (CPSU) pay more than half of all the state’s salaries. The salary of all the other states will increase.

    • I am not able to understand your point..please kindly let me know if there is an increase in salary. I am from Assam.

  6. its sad that a person working under ICPS has a very heavy workload yet the pay is very very low in which a contractual wages employee salary is higher than DEO working under ICPS.

  7. All the schemes have revised including MGNREGS, MATRU BANDHAN YOJONA, DDU. But it is very sad that there is no news about ICPS as the budget already reached about 1500 cr. this fiscal 19-20. We are getting many utopian news from everywhere.
