Minority Welfare Department will finally release salaries of Staff of Urdu Academy Computer Centre & Library. The employees of the above mentioned institutions were deprived of salaries for the past four months. However they were diligently working for various government schemes. They had to make representation on all levels for payment of salaries. They were just paid lip services for the past two months. Finally the government allocated Rs. 75 lakh for their salaries in the budget released for Urdu academy.
