AIPEF opposes extension to BBMB Chairman
All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) has opposed the extension to BBMB Chairman as he has failed to provide the qualities of professional leadership.

AIPEF, in a letter to J M Scindia, Minister of Power, alleged that working of BBMB management derailed in last two years. It said BBMB chairman is responsible for gross mismanagement of Pong Reservoir which resulted in opening of spillway gates, loss of energy, loss of water and a tragic man-made flood, which devastated areas near the Beas river.

Bhakra Left Bank Power House Units 2 and 5 were shut down for renovation, modernization and upgrading in 2010 and units were supposed to be re-commissioned within one year. These units are yet to be re-commissioned despite abnormal delays.

BBMB has recently made a move to create its own cadre of employees on the ground that there is a perpetual shortage of personnel from the partner states.

The claim of BBMB about failure of SEBs to send engineers to BBMB is not based on facts. Posting of Chief engineer against SE post is shocking particularly as post of CE System operation is still vacant.

The Chief Engineer Transmission System BBMB, a well-known “Astrologer & Tantrik” has been given an extension in service beyond age of superannuation at the recommendation of BBMB Chairman and extension was not approved by his parent organization UHBVN.

Earlier, Secretary BBMB, a Haryana Irrigation engineer got extension and promotion as Chief Engineer at the recommendation of BBMB Chairman. He has been retained as Chief engineer in BBMB though there is no vacant post and his pay has been charged to post of SE HQ in CE TS office.

BBMB has developed a practice of giving six monthly extensions to those officials/ workers/ technical personnel who are to retire. It has been alleged in the letter that a kickback equal to one-month salary is to be given by the concerned employee.

XEN Kurukshetra (BBMB) from Rajasthan cadre has been handpicked and given promotion as Superintending Engineer and posted at Panipat. Recently, BBMB chairman against rules stopped the pay of two superintending engineers, as one daily wager did not get his pay on time.
