I work as a private security guard at CSIR NML (Council Of Scientific And Industrial Research, National Metallurgical Laboratory), in Jamshedpur, for the last two years. Our salaries for October and November 2022 are yet to be paid.

Getting delayed salaries is not new to us. Every month, our salaries come with a delay of 15-20 days, sometimes even more. It has been over two months, and we have yet to be paid.

When they hired us, we were told by the agency that they were taking Rs 15,000 from us because they would provide us with a uniform kit with winter wear. Winter has arrived, and we still need to be equipped to deal with the weather.

Security guards have paid Rs 15,000 to the agency in the name of the uniform kit, but they are yet to be provided with winter clothes.

Regarding the payment of salaries, when we reached out to NML, they said that since the agency is not submitting PFs and ESIs correctly, they have put the agency's bill on hold. On the other hand, the agency says that since CSIR-NML is not clearing their bills, they cannot pay us.

In both these conditions, we suffer, and the buck is just being passed. It's very tough for us to survive in these conditions.
