The Framework on Engaging Local Tradesmen/Women is promoting minimum wage standards, indicating a new era of fair compensation and empowerment for local craftsmanship. They say this initiative will not only ensure remuneration but also foster skill development and enhance rural livelihoods.

FELT is designed to offer local tradesmen/women meaningful opportunities for engagement, skill enhancement, and contribution to rural development.

Permanent Secretary for Civil Service, Parmesh Chand says by adhering to minimum wage regulations these rural craftsmen/women will receive fair compensation for their labour, thereby uplifting their economic status and contributing to the attractiveness of rural living.

Chand says the FELT Framework not only addresses these challenges but also signifies a shift towards inclusive economic development.

Meanwhile, District Officers and Provincial Administrators are encouraged to collaborate with community leaders to improve the infrastructure of Government offices and stations in rural areas.
