6 months on, still no update on from municipal corporations on the ongoing surveillance of sanitation workers

In September 2022, the National Commission for Safai Karamcharis (“NCSK”), in a significant step, directed four municipal corporations using GPS tracking devices on sanitation workers - in Ranchi, Chandigarh, Ghaziabad and Nagpur - to furnish a factual report to them. This was in response to a joint letter signed by 18 organisations and 187 individuals. IFF and the All India Lawyers Association For Justice (“AILAJ”) were co-signatories to this letter and had raised concerns about the unconstitutional surveillance of sanitation workers. On March 28, 2023, we sent the municipal corporations follow-up letters inquiring about the status of these factual reports.
