GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 16: The Central Coordination Committee of Self Help Group of Engineers Association today demanded that pilot project scheme 2003 introduced by the state, should also be implemented by the central government agencies/departments in J&K in their favour.
As per the scheme, the self help groups are being provided 30 per cent quota in government works for execution.
The engineers said the central government departments and central agencies carrying out different works in the state, should also allot the prescribed quota for execution to them.
State President Er Syed Parvez Safvi addressing a meeting of the engineers here today said the quota scheme should be followed by ERA, CPWD, Railways, etc.
Safvi expressed satisfaction over the release of quota by the state departments. He also hailed the government for enhancing ‘monitory limit of Rs 50 lakh.’
Safvi also urged the government to address their grievances with regard taxes, payments at treasuries.
He hailed chief minister Omar Abdullah for addressing many problems of the self help group engineers.
“The CM has said the SHGEs while forming the groups shall earn a decent living and extend expert service in execution of engineering works,” he said.
“We must give full support to the government while in execution of works,” he said, adding that there should not be any delay from “our side in the completion of the works being allotted to us.”
However, Safi said there are some officials in some works divisions who are “unnecessarily creating trouble for the SHGEs by different means.”
“I hope the Chief Minister will take a serious note of this grievance,” he said.
District Presidents at the meeting hailed chief minister for “address many of the problems of the self help group of engineers.”
They also hailed Safvi for taking the issues with the government at every forum.
