New Delhi, Nov 26: The Delhi government today organised 67 camps across the city for opening bank accounts for labourers to facilitate their inclusion in the banking system and ensure timely payment of wages to them.
The Revenue Department in collaboration with Labour Department and leading banks organised these camps where accounts of workers were opened.
The district magistrates of all 11 districts of Delhi had yesterday held meetings with the district managers of banks and labour department officials in order to workout the location of these camps and other modalities.
In a statement, the government said the Revenue Department played a proactive role "in pursuance of Government of India's directions" to launch a campaign to open bank accounts in respect of those workers of organised and unorganised sectors who do not have their own bank accounts even now.
This campaign will continue for the coming few days through banks, their business correspondents and camps as required, the statement said.
