Haryana allows officers to hire home peons

Chandigarh, Sep 7 (IANS) The Haryana government on Monday announced its decision to provide home peon facility to certain categories of officers working in the state.

“This facility would be provided to all the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers, judicial officers and heads of departments working for the state of Haryana,” a spokesman of the Haryana government said on Monday.

“Similarly, all Haryana Civil Services (HCS) officers working for the state of Haryana, who exercise the magisterial powers by virtue of their posting would also be given this facility.”

These officers would be allowed to engage a home peon at their own level at the statutory minimum wages for unskilled labour as fixed by the state government from time to time.

The officer may inform their drawing and disbursing officer (DDO) regarding the engagement of home peon, including the name and address of the person so engaged, along with his/her bank account details.
