JAMMU, Mar 17: Due to continuous official apathy and administrative callousness a large number of employees in Pollution Control Board (PCB) are stagnated on one post for last over 16 years with the result the Department has become almost all defunct and the government's claims to regulate environment are becoming hollow day by day.
Despite knocking the doors of the every successive governments justice still eludes these employees as every government turned a cold shoulder towards them. Instead of looking in their problems the authorities in the corridors of power did not even bother to look into their case and issue orders for the disposal of the file. These employees are presently not only dejected but demoralized also as the chances of their progress in the career have been halted due to the official wrangles and bureaucratic apathy. Though their genuine problem could have been redressed with a small input activity but no one at the helm of affairs shows any interest in doing the same for reasons best known to them.
Despite running from pillar to post these employees are very critical of the system though which the things move in the department and the only hope left for them is the Governor N N Vohra and his administration whom they believe can dispensate justice to these deserving employees.
According to sources these aggrieved employees have taken up their issue with every successive government till date but to no avail. It may not be out of place to mention here that posts created in 1996 have become defunct due to official apathy and bureaucratic wrangles.
Sources said the posts could have been re designated in the Department to create the new posts which are required as per the work load of the Department and it could have not involved more financial implications also.
Moreover the PCB is absent from eight newly created districts in the State. This pollution regulatory authority's absence in these newly created districts is a cause of concern for all, sources added.
However the authorities till date have not bothered to create the posts in these eight districts so that the in service employees of the department could have been promoted on newly created posts besides the avenues of could have also been generated in these districts.
Sources said that this is not only stagnated promotion and career progression of many employees of PCB but also put a question mark on the seriousness with which the government has viewed implementation of environmental regulations in the State. This Department of PCB needs to be on the pattern of Central Pollution Control Board under whose mandate J&K PCB functions, sources added.
