Plumbers, electricians seek exemption from e-registration
A section of plumbers and electricians complained about difficulties with electronic registration and asked the government to grant them an exemption.
The Tiruchi District Electricians, Plumbers and Winders Society has claimed that many of the plumbers and electricians are semi-literate or illiterate and unfamiliar with computerized procedures.
According to company secretary V. Murugesan, few were able to complete the registration and appealed to the government to abolish the norm. “Only some of us were able to e-register on Sunday even though the system was slow. Many tried Monday morning and failed, ”he said.
Many are day laborers and therefore have no income during the lockdown. Therefore, district authorities must allow holders of identity cards and uniforms issued by the company to pursue their trades without restrictions, he added.
