JEs not promoted despite Govt orders
Seek Chief Minister’s Intervention To Resolve Issue
Srinagar, June 4: J&K Government is yet to promote a number of Junior Engineers (Mechanical) despite having formally agreed to their elevation in position in 2011.
While the promotion of Grade-I Junior Engineers in Civil and Electric wings has already taken place after their conversion into assistant engineers vide a government order, the JEs in the Mechanical Wing, who were included in the same order, have been left out “for unknown reasons.” With the result, at least 85 JEs are suffering for none of their fault.
“We are serving as JEs for the past 25 years. Now we are at the verge of retirement. But despite that, our conversion/promotion into Assistant Engineers is still to take place despite a clear-cut Government Order,” a group of aggrieved JEs (Mechanical) told Greater Kashmir.
The state government in its Order No. 370-pw-hyd of 2011 sanctioned conversion of junior engineer grade-I (civil/mechanical/electric) into assistant engineers.
“Sanction is herby accorded to the conversion of junior engineer grade-I (civil/mechanical/electric) into assistant engineers by corresponding reduction of equal number of posts of junior engineer grade-I in pursuance of cabinet decisions No. 165/21/2011 dated 21. 09. 2011,” the government order stated.
“An addition of 544 posts will be made to the cadre of assistant engineers in PHE/I&FC/R&B/Mechanical department by corresponding reduction of equal number of posts of JE grade-I.”
These posts of assistant engineers, according to the order, shall be filled up by the existing JE cadre-I after reduction of equal number of posts in respective cadres.
But despite the cabinet sanction and a formal order thereafter, the aggrieved JEs said the “mechanical wing candidates were not promoted to assistant engineers. Our promotion files were cleared by the concerned Departments and employees for promotion were classified on the basis of seniority. But promotions were not done for unknown reasons.”
The aggrieved engineers sought the intervention of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah into the issue. “We want the chief minister to personally intervene in the matter and resolve it,” they said.
‘Will look into it’
The Commissioner/Secretary, Public Works Department, Tanveer Jehan said she would look into the matter. “I have no information about the issue this time. However, I will look into the issue,” she told Greater Kashmir.
