    More than 1000 workers have gathered at the Freedom Park

    Increase in salary is a prominent demand among others

    ASHA workers are unable to regster themselves in the RCH portal

Even as the Karnataka government is making preparations for presenting the budget, it is faced with a protest by the Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) workers. ASHA workers have a series of demands for which they have planned the protest. ASHA workers from across Karnataka will gather at the Freedom Park in Bengaluru for this purpose. The protests will last for a period of 2 days. More than 1000 workers are expected to participate in the protest. The protest will commence at 11 AM. Increase in salary is a prominent demand among others. The protestors anticipate a written statement from the government that their demands will be fulfilled by 14th February. The protestors plan to march to the Vidhana Soudha if the government does not yield to this condition. 

Their demands apart from including a demand for an increase in salary to a minimum of Rs 15,000 per month that also covers travel costs, expanded health coverage and a clearance of remaining dues that have accumulated over a period of 2 years also pertain to the procurement of the incentive from the central government. For this they are required to register themselves in the Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) portal. 

ASHA workers are however either not technically well equipped or in possession of devices required to register themselves. They want the process of registration to be carried out by their higher-ups as they are missing out on the incentives due to this.
