Dear Blog Readers,
Thanks for reading the blogs . Also , thousands of people ( I believe that you are all NRHM employees or their friends , relatives or well wishers ! ) have asked me a few important questions like:
Will NRHM get extended after March 2012 ?
What will happen to NRHM after 2017 ?
Why are the temporary / contractual workers not being made permanent ?
Let me attempt to answer your questions based on my interactions with the relevant people ( based on informal discussions only ).
Yes , the NRHM is getting extended beyond March 2012 till 2017 .
Beyond 2012, since the program has been the flagship program , the likely hood of extension beyond 2017 is ‘Politically’ certain.
Also, the government believes that , the permanent government employees don’t work as good as contractual employees , so the likelihood of your becoming permanent till 2017 looks ‘Bureaucratically’ difficult
Since these answers are based on my informal discussions at the highest levels , you can be certain about some quotes mentioned above
All the best .
