Title: Need to open a Provident Fund Sub-Regional Office at Peddapalli town in Andhra Pradesh.
DR. (SHRIMATI) C. SUGUNA KUMARI (PEDDAPALLI): Sir, Peddapalli town is headquarter of Peddapalli Assembly and Parliament segment in Andhra Pradesh. Nearly two lakh beedi workers, construction workers and other unorganised workers are living in the constituency. These poor, helpless, innocent, ignorant workers have to go a long distance for their Provident Fund problems. They have to go to Warangal city and face a lot of problems in Provident fund Office there. Through you, I request the hon. Minister for Labour to expedite the opening up of a Provident Fund Sub-Regional Office at Peddapalli. The proposal to open an office was there; a building was also contracted for opening an office. But the process is being delayed. It will be a great help to two lakh beedi workers, construction workers and other unorganised workers if this office is opened.
