Address the grievance of Class 10 students of PCHSS

We, the students of grade 10 of Presentation Convent Higher Secondary school, Rajbagh, would like to inform the education department that our school has notified us about the offline, internal exams next week. It is pertinent to mention that all schools across the state are closed due to the pandemic. In addition to this, we have been asked to prepare projects and viva for the internals even as our finals are just two months away. This is taking a mental toll on us, students. Preparing so many projects in these difficult circumstances is adding to our woes. We request the concerned authorities to take immediate action in this regard.

We, the residents of village MuqamShahwali, Drugmulla, appeal to JK Bank authorities to kindly provide ATM branch and banking facilities in the area. The said village has got the historical importance in the district and is a pilgrimage site as the shrine of ZayatiShahwali (RahmatullahAllhi) is situated here. A number of pilgrims visit the said shrine every year during the Urs, but due to the non-availability of ATM facilities, they suffer a lot of inconveniences. We request the authorities to establish an ATM and other banking facilities.

Redress the grievances of JalJeevan employees

We, the employees of JAL Jeevan Mission, are working on a contractual basis for more than last eight years. We have been recruited through the proper procedure of by the selection committee framed by the Jal Shakti department. We are highly qualified and have been imparted skill training before joining the department. However, we are being considered as casual workers by the Jal Shakti department and are getting meagre wages. Nobody is raising our issue. It is also pertinent to mention here that the J&K Govt has already regularised its contractual employees. They had completed continuous service of seven years under particular provision act 2010(SRO 255), which includes doctors, engineers, teachers, and other non-gazetted employees. But, we have been ignored by this provision due to unknown reasons. Also, we are receiving our wages yearly instead of monthly. We are working round

the clock in this pandemic, risking our lives for the welfare of common masses. Still our services are not being acknowledged by the Jal Shakti department, as well as the J&K Govt. We have submitted a couple of representations before concerned higher authorities, regarding the redressal of our grievances, especially enhancement of monthly wages as per protocol guidelines and for the regularisation of our services, but to no avail. The concerned higher authorities must acknowledge our services and extend SRO 255 to all JalJeevan mission employees of J&K. Most of the employees have crossed their age limit and have only this source of income.

We fervently appeal to the LT Governor, and the Chief Secretary to look into the matter and redress our grievances at an earliest.

Residents of Kandi block, Dangiwacha demand banking facility

We, the residents of the Kandi block of tehsil Dangiwacha, are facing tremendous hardships due to the non-availability of banking facilities in our area. People by and large face various problems because a bank unit is essential for all business transactions and other day to day operations. The Kandi block has more than thirty villages, and the location and terrains are tough. People have to travel 12 to 15 KM to reach the nearest possible JK Bank Branch near Dangiwacha. The Government employees and business fraternity also suffer due to the official apathy of JK Bank authorities despite their assurances regarding the opening of the Bank business unit. However, till date proposal had not been executed. We request Chairman J&K Bank and vice president North circle to open the J&K Bank branch in our area so that our sufferings are mitigated.
