MCG to test their engineers' skills by conducting an exam
In what seems to be an embarrassing move, juniour and assistant engineers deputed with Muncipal Corporation of Gurgoan need to undergo a written exam in order to prove their competence. The question paper is going to be set by a consultant. Engineers are not happy with this MCG move.

MCG must have come to this conclusion with the way roads in Gurgaon are built. These roads does not last for long. Primarily, these roads are tested during the rainy season. The MCG Chief, Praveen Kumar wants to increase the knowledge of their engineers through this test as well.

"I feel this test will generate their interest in the work and enhance their skills. Most of them are not fully aware of the work they are supposed to do. For example, 25 factors are to be taken into account while constructing a concrete road. However they are not sure of the formula and proportion used for construction. The questions for the test will be prepared by a consultant and I will personally monitor the test which will be conducted soon," said Kumar, reported The Times of India.

But, this has not gone well with engineers of MCG. It seems that the MCG does not trust the knowledge of these engineers, hence the test. There are more than 30 such engineers, who need to undergo the test.

If these engineers fail to crack the test, Praveen Kumar may well send these engineers to their parent organisation. "We are well qualified for the job. This is just an attempt to prove us wrong and show that we are incompetent," said a junior engineer, who refrained from being named.
