Jammu Look For Health, Life Insurance For Journalists

New-Insurance-plan

The Press Club of Jammu requested Jammu and Kashmir government to take a few steps for welfare of the journalists.

President of PCJ, Ashwani Kumar, while lauding the steps taken by Punjab’s Information and Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, said that the Punjab government has shown the promise towards journalists and has taken a significant decision to introduce a cashless insurance scheme for the media fraternity besides making several significant provisions for the media in the Budget 2016-17.

Requesting the J&K government to take cue from this decision, Kumar said such plans will improve the working circumstances of journalists in the state.

“Journalists in Jammu and Kashmir are working in adverse conditions and need such commitments from government for their security,” he said.

He said PCJ has already submitted a representation to the state government and had given a complete plan for the working and accredited journalists like Journalist Welfare Scheme Fund, Medical Insurance Schemes, Accident Insurance and Pension Schemes for journalists however still no action has been taken from the government side.
