PDD employees start three days pen down strike against Corporatisation
10/9/2019 10:23:39 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 9: The employees of Power development department in all districts of Jammu and Kashmir today observed 'Complete Pen Down strike' against the unilateral move of the Government to operationalise the Unbundling of the department, without involving the employees.
Acting on the call of PEECC, the employees voluntarily joined in the Pen Down call expressing resentment on the move of the government to split the Government department into companies. The pen down affected the Bill generation, distribution, redressal of consumer grievances in the revenue centers along with the hampering of the information transmission to higher authorities. The state IT centres of PDD along with the work in the Divisional offices also remained affected as employees refused to entertain the consumer grievances pertaining to the Bills and abstained from any official work in offices.
However in order to avoid inconvenience to consumers, the rapid action teams for fault resolutions/maintain of supply were allowed to continue their assignments.
The Employees while raising slogans against the move of the Government called for immediate shelving of this corporatisation as this is against the interests of employees as Government has failed to conduct DPC, resolve pay anomalies of all cadres. The daily wagers and need based employees who have served for more than 20 years to the department have been awaiting regularisation and corporatisation could lead them into severe crisis and could be retrenched by companies. Government should fill all the vacancies and give promotion opportunity to the employees before arriving at unbundling/corporatisation plans.
The PEECC resolved that this pen down shall continue for three days after which new action plan shall be given after deliberations by the committee members. It seeks involvement in committee constituted to prepare a comprehensive proposal for apportionment /reorganisation of Jammu and Kashmir Power Development department between UT of Jammu and Kashmir and UT of Ladakh, as PEECC doesn't have faith on the committee constituted as it has member chairman who has to retire in one month and majority of others retiring in six months . The immediate need is to simply apportion the assets to be transferred to Ladhakh UT and Corporatisation of PDD should be done only after detailed consultations of all stake holders after the formation of JK UT and cadres are properly assured in changed administrative setup. It is vehemently appealed to HE GovernorSatya Pal Malik that Power development department should be retained as a Government department and allow this large sector of employment opportunity to grow strongly.
