JEs welcome govt decision
Srinagar, Dec 12: The Junior Engineers of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical streams have welcomed the government decision regarding their pay hike.
“We express our sincere gratitude to those involved with the pay anomaly Committee,” the JEs who met here said in a statement and hailed the State Joint Action Committee of All J&K Graduate Engineers Association for its role in highlighting the disparities before the Committee.
“The government directives to Engineering Departments to expedite the process of making amendments in the recruitment rules and looking into promotional aspects in conformity with other states is a historic decision that will not only raise the otherwise sagging morale of the engineering fraternity, but will resolve the demands of the community to a large extent,” they said.
The meeting was attended by Pirzada Hidayatullah, Shafaat Ahmad Teli, Peer Zahoor, Kaiser Ahmad, Tanveer Khan, Shuja Showkat and Aijaz Ahmad.
Meanwhile, J&K Electrical Engineering Graduates Association has also expressed gratitude to the Government for removing the pay anomaly. “The pay revision is a step in the right direction and morale booster for the fraternity,” the Association said in a statement. In a meeting presided by Association General Secretary, Basit Qadri, the members resolved to work towards the welfare of the fraternity.
