The News Cover: Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh wants to achieve the target of 100% vaccination against the deadly COVID-19. For this the Ujjain district Collector Ashish Singh came up with a unique idea and issued an order on 22nd June. The order said salaries of government employees in Ujjain will not be disbursed if they fail to get vaccinated till 31st July. 

The decision was taken with the aim to attain 100% vaccination. The order also said that an officer has been directed to collect vaccination certificates. Once the certificates are checked only then the salaries will be released. Heads of various departments in the district were also directed to submit information about vaccination among the daily wage and contractual employees. 

The collector said such a decision was made because, it was found that many Ujjain government employees had died due to COVID-19 as they were not vaccinated. The decision to release salary only after vaccination was to encourage employees to take the jab. This will ensure many people will get vaccinated and remain safe.
