Its amazing, this country called INDIA.
Here the BESCOM employee gets free power, BWSSB employee gets free water, KSRTC employee gets free bus rides. The list is endless like this.
One person asked me cheekily, my father works in Mysore mints – why don’t we get free currency notes?
To my knowledge these kinds of amenities are NOT provided in most other countires to service providing employees unless they are part of pre discussed package deal.
The only answer I can think for this is in good olden days when the resources were in abundant, the companies with less number of employees were able to provide these freebees and also improve their efficiencies in some way.
But, with every resource being stretched to ends and limits, its high time people took a relook at these amenities right?
