Panaji: Drishti Lifesaving Services has terminated services of protesting lifeguards with immediate effect.

The lifeguards are protesting since October over nonpayment of their salaries by the agency.

In a statement issued, Drishti has said that the show cause notices have been issued to lifeguards over the last two weeks as they cannot consider it a strike since no notice or charter of demands has been shared with the management.

” The company is following the procedures as laid down by the law of the country and initiated disciplinary action on staff absconding from work. Termination procedures as per law have been initiated,” the statement reads. Lifeguards have been requested to return their official uniforms by November 1.

“Option to join back was offered to all lifeguards who stayed away with repeated deadlines till a day after Diwali. The company has paid all dues to its staff as well as bonus has been paid to lifeguards who are presently working. There are no dues outstanding,” it said.

The agency said that the training of new lifeguards is in progress and we expect to reach full strength to be on active duty by November 30 in time to be fully equipped for the peak tourist season.

It has further said that all beaches continue to be manned effectively by a team of highly skilled lifeguards, supervisors and trainers. In addition the company has deployed additional equipment and resources to augment any operational gaps. The beaches are well supervised and safe for visitors.
