Haryana engineers meet HPGCL & UHVBN managements
Haryana Power Generation Engineers Association (HPGEA) and Haryana Power Engineers Association (HPEA) had a meeting with MKV Rama Rao, MD HPGCL yesterday and urged him to solve their genuine demands. HPEA also met Anil Malik MD Uttar Haryana Vidhyut Bitran Nigam (UHVBN) last week.

RS Dahiya, Chairman of Northern India Power Engineers Federation who led the engineer’s delegation in both meetings said that the recent decisions regarding proposed promotion policy, induction of outsiders as Directors of power utilities have left the senior level engineers worrying about their career prospects. Assistant Engineers/Assistant Executive Engineers are worried about their lower pay scales and allowances than their counterparts in other state power utilities adopted by utility managements.

The engineers in meetings alleged that posting of outsiders as Directors will block the promotion of senior Chief Engineers who used to get the post of Director as per seniority. The induction of outsiders as Directors in Discoms and introduction of new promotion policy for filling up the senior level posts is a ploy of government to adjust its favorites at top posts.

Ranbir Deshwal General Secretary of HPEA said that a committee was formed in June 2013 to review pay anomalies of Assistant engineers and Assistant executive engineers and the committee was suppose to give its report in two months. It is surprising that till to date not a single meeting of committee has been held so for.

Hardeep Sangwan General Secretary of HPGEA said that the management of both utilities assured the engineers that their grievances regarding pay anomalies, time scales and revision of allowances shall be put up to board of Directors in a time bound manner.

The HPGCL management also assured that the allowances such as Shift Duty, Hardship, SLODA and project allowances will also be enhanced. Further Management assured that generation incentive will be calculated on basic pay plus grade pay and increment on 5 year time scale of AE/AEE will also be released soon.

The Associated also brought in to management notice the matter regarding posting of power engineers against vacant share quota posts of power utility in BBMB and demanded that senior most engineers in a category be promoted and posted in BBMB.

Earlier a group of engineers held a meeting with Khandelwal Principal Secretary to CM who also assured all help in solving their problems and to remove irritants. The engineers have urged the Chief Minister to solve their long pending grievances.
