KUWAIT CITY, Jan 7: After the passage of 33 years, a former Indian staff member, who dedicated almost a decade of service to the Ministry of Education from 1980 to 1990, is now endeavoring to secure the rightful compensation owed to him. Sivarajan Nagapan Achari, employed as a sanitary technician assistant (plumber) under the Ministry’s sponsorship, was remunerated with a monthly salary of 70 dinars. The Iraqi invasion in 1990 compelled him to leave Kuwait and return to his homeland.

In a formal letter directed to the Ministry of Education, Achari underscores his prolonged appeal for the end-of-service gratuity (Indemnity) and vacation salary, which he failed to receive amid the tumult of wartime departure. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, referencing correspondence from the Indian embassy, amplifies Achari’s plea, urging Kuwaiti authorities to address the matter with compassion and facilitate the retrieval of his pending benefits from his former employer.

Upon scrutinizing its systems, the Ministry of Education determined that the end-of-service reward falls within the jurisdiction of the Civil Service Commission rather than the Ministry itself. Additionally, the integrated systems indicate the completion of the entity’s review phase, with no mention of Achari’s data. Nevertheless, the Ministry has identified the contract between the Indian worker and the Ministry, recognizing its responsibility to safeguard his entitlements.
