On Thursday noon, the Ministry of Manpower closed the door to registering the update of irregular employment data to obtain the “fourth stage” 500 pounds, after the update began last Saturday.
Masrawy monitors 5 messages for irregular workers whose data were recorded during the past days and until noon today, as follows:
1- The number of registered until the end of the deadline specified on the electronic portal of the Ministry of Manpower website and the Cabinet Information Center reached 6 million and 22 thousand workers over a period of 6 days.
2- Immediate data auditing by the committee formed under the chairmanship of the prime minister and membership of the ministries of manpower, social solidarity, communications, supply and other concerned parties, to determine the date of disbursement.
3- The registrants must wait for a letter with the date and place of the exchange after checking the data and selecting the names that are due.
4- Selection of the names eligible for the grant depends on choosing the groups that have already been affected by the Corona epidemic as a result of their work in irregular sectors and their lack of an insurance system, that is, they do not obtain insurance from any government or private entity.
5- The new exchange mechanism for the fourth stage, determined by the Committee to Support and Aid the Workers Affected by the Economic Repercussions of the Coronavirus.
The Egyptian government opened, for a period of 6 days, starting from Saturday 10 October until Thursday 15 October, the door to recording personal data on the presidential grant for irregular workers, through the link to the website of the Council of Ministers and the website of the Ministry of Manpower, estimated at 500 pounds per month for those affected by the Corona virus Novelty.
This comes within the framework of the great interest on the part of the political leadership represented by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, and the state’s comprehensive plan to protect irregular workers from any repercussions of the new Corona virus (Covid-19), by continuing to support this group, which the Egyptian state started with since the Corona pandemic By disbursing 500 pounds to casual workers until the end of the year.
