PTI reported that INTUC-affiliated trade body Indian National Mineworkers’ Federation has put forth a demand before Coal India that all workers irrespective of activities they are involved in, should have an insurance cover of INR 50 lakh in case of death due to Covid-19. INMF chairman Pramod Agrawal wrote in a letter to CIL “All coal workers who are deployed for any activities including production, washing, transportation…during lockdown period and even thereafter till Covid-19 pandemic ceases, be insured for a minimum of INR 50 lakh against unfortunate death out of coronavirus.”

INMF said that it supports and endorses contribution of one-day salary to combat Covid-19 pandemic. It said “However, INMF is of strong view that at least equal or matching amount if not more be added by company for CSR Fund.”
