"Safai karmacharis in Kohima are not getting benefits under Self-Employment Scheme for Rehabilitation of Manual Scavengers (SRMC). They are not able to avail microcredit facilities and insurance coverage programmes," he said. Venkatesan said he would write a letter to the state government to "enhance salary of permanent and temporary safai karmacharis". He also urged the workers to register their grievances and problems on the NCSK"s portal so that the non-statutory body can take up the issues with the authorities concerned.
