Thermal engineers protest KRA and promotion policy
The Haryana Power Generation Engineers Association held a gate meeting yesterday at Thermal Power Station, Panipat to express their resentment against draft promotion policy and key result area (KRA) and draft promotion policy.
Hardeep Sangwan general Secretary of Association said that the  Haryana Government is trying to stress the employees with showcased performance by implementing KRA policies whereas most of the plants remains under forced outage on the pretext of no demand, as the state has made long term and short term  power purchase agreements with private parties.

The final outcome of implementing the KRA policies and draft promotion policy will definitely demoralize the engineers, which will affect the plant efficiency. HPGCL Engineers demanded that instead of imposing KRA policies management should recruit engineers timely, provide proper training and stress free atmosphere, good quality of coal, good generation incentive scheme.

Hardip Sangwan  said that draft 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 power engineers held a meeting with Chief Minister last fortnight and a high level committee committee was formed to sort out engineers' problems. The committee is yet to begin its work though it was suppose to have its first meeting within one week.

Meanwhile unit no. 2 of Khedar thermal plants was synchronized yesterday after a lapse of 8 months. The turbine rotor was sent to China for repair after high vibrations were observed in the turbine last year. At Panipat thermal plant yesterday only unit no. 7 was generating power while other seven units were shut down on no demand.

UHVBN engineers alleged that there has been no promotion of engineers to the level of Superintending Engineers against vacant posts.
