All India power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) fully supports the Jammu and Kashmir Electrical Engineering Graduates Association (JKEEGA) decision  to go on protest leave on September 9 in support of their demands.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has been absolutely non- serious about the Issues being faced by the power employees and engineers. The recruitment   has been put on hold for the last 7 years and Transmission Corporation is  headless from almost one year now.   A mass   protest leave has been planned for September 9 , where all engineers from  Jammu and Srinagar will participate. AIPEF demands that the administration should resolve the genuine issues  of J & K employees and engineers, said V K Gupta Spokesperson.

A meeting of its apex body of Guidance Council under the chairmanship of Sachin Tickoo president JKEEGA and Peerzada Hidayatullah, general secretary was held at Jammu and Srinagar, and deliberated the inordinate delay in the filling up the vacant positions  denting  the morale of the engineering fraternity.

Tickoo  said  that the  currently there are two posts of Managing Director, three posts of Executive Director, five Chief Engineers, 14 Superintending Engineers, 61 Executive Engineers, 132 Assistant Ex- Engineers, 164 Assistant Engineers and around 350 Junior Engineers which are vacant leading to situation where every other person is having minimum two or three charge in the corporations of PDD. This clearly affects the quality of work.

Hidayatullah said that they have been continuously following the resolution of HR issues and time and again we were assured of the resolution of all issues but to no avail. The significant issues of regularization, timely promotions against vacant posts, and recruitment at the Junior Engineer level have been lingering for quite a long time now. The fact is that the entire engineer’s presently working in different Power Corporations has not been granted a single regular promotion.

The Guidance Council of both Jammu & Kashmir regions  have resolved that all the graduate engineers of J&K Power Development Department shall submit one-day protest leave to the government for Sept 9, 2023  to register one-day peaceful protest against non-seriousness of the government towards their legitimate demands.
