Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 18: Uncertainty is looming over the present and future of thousands of employees and officials of Power Development Department (PDD) who were sent on deputation en-masse to Jammu and Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Limited (JKPDCL), as they have not been getting timely salaries for the last over two months now.
Sources in the department informed Early Times that all the employees, officials as well as daily wagers were sent on deputation to JKPDCL from the PDD by the government.
“Tall claims were made by the government about power scenario in J&K, when they were sent on deputation to JKPDCL, which was part of the proposal to unbundle the PDD. For the first month, all employees, officials including Executive Engineers got the salary on 20th of December, while in the month of January, we got salary on 17th of the month”, the officials informed, adding that when they were part of JKPDD, they were getting salary before end of the month similar to other departments.
Moreover, sources further said that even on the eve of Lohri festival, all the employees were without salary, which was most unfortunate. “While shifting the employees and officials to JKPDCL, the government had claimed that the transmission and distribution losses will be plugged in, while 24X7 power supply will be ensured beside other claims but all have been dashed to ground”, the officials said, adding that there was every possibility that T&D losses would increase rather than decreasing due to faulty policies of the government.
The employees and officials of JKPDCL alleged that not even a single assurance has been met in the last three months. “Reshuffling in the department was done at sub-station levels, which will disturb the realization of revenue as the targets will not be achieved by the ground staff due to shifting”, the officials alleged, adding that if the government would publish a report card of last three months, it would expose the claims of the government itself.
“The daily wagers and casual workers, who are 5000 in Jammu alone are still uncertain about their future as they have not surely whether they will be regularized by government or not”, the official said, adding that at all fronts the claims of government have fall flat.
The officials further said that one could easily imagine the future of the JKPDCL and employees, who have not been getting timely salaries. “It is just beginning of bad days for employees and officials and in future more problems will arise due to faulty planning of the government to shift the employees on deputation to the JKPDCL”, the officials alleged
