Subject: Parity in Monthly Consolidated Remunerations in respect of persons engaged on contract in Different Programmes under West Bengal State Health & Family Welfare Samiti.


Disparities and anomalies in the consolidated remuneration allowed to contractual employees engaged in various health sector programmes under the WBSH&FWS have long been a matter of concern. Therefore, a committee had been constituted to remove such disparities and anomalies and bring about parity in the pattern of remuneration.

Based on the recommendations of the committee, the WBSH&FWS has decided to revisit the pattern of consolidated remuneration allowed to contractual employees engaged in different health sector programmes under the WBSH&FWS as set out in Annexure II to this order.

Annexure II will become effective only after the submission of the relevant information in the prescribed format in Annexure-I by the State Programme Officers to the WBSH&FWS, followed by specific sanctions based on such information by the Executive Director of the Samiti.

Under no circumstances should the Programme Officers grant revised remuneration as set out in Annexure II, without such specific approval.

Enclosed: As Stated

Yours faithfully
