Water testing employees demand regularisation of services

We, the employees of water testing laboratories of Kashmir division, are working on contractual basis for last more than eight years and our yearly continuation of services is being extended only after submitting performance certificates from our concerned drawing officers which is very time-consuming. Pertinently, our colleagues of Jammu division & Ladakh(UT) have a one-time auto-renewal system of continuation. Also, we are being paid meagre wages annually, instead of monthly, due to which we are facing tremendous hardships. We have made several requests to concerned higher authorities to issue one time continuation order in our favour and release our wages as per NRDWP guidelines, 2013. However, no action has been taken. According to reliable sources, the J&K PHE department is not submitting utilization certificate to central Govt authorities for releasing of funds at the proper time and this is the main cause of late releasing of our wages. We now make a fervent appeal to Honourable Lt Governor to look into the matter and resolve our grievances at the earliest.


Residents of border areas demand basic facilities

We, the residents of the border area, want to draw the kind attention of the administration to the sufferings of people of our area. Residents of Balnoi, Ward 8 -9 of Tehsil Mendhar, Poonch are suffering due to the lack of basic facilities like water supply, roads, electricity and education. There are many houses which are without water pipelines in this area. Even if there are water pipelines, they are without the supply of water. Tanks and bore wells are also without water supply.

A 33 kV transformer was provided to the public in 2003, but now the number of households has increased. So, we demand a high voltage transformer for our area. Roads have not been constructed under any scheme in the village from the last 15-20 years. Only one road is available without much connectivity in the village. The construction of some roads had started a few years ago but the work hasn’t been completed yet. The education system of our area is the worst affected. School buildings have not been renovated. These buildings are without proper doors and windows. There are no washroom facilities for school-going children. Children of border areas are suffering because of this. We appeal to the authorities to look into this matter at the earliest.
