EJAC Supports PHE Employees Protest.. Calls it justified and logical. Dalbir Singh

Jammu:- in a press statement EJAC President Mohammad Rafiq Rather criticised the move of Government for adopting two different yard sticks while transferring part of few Departments to ULB/SMC/JMC. He said that in a recent order a portion of jal shakti (PHE) Kashmir civil/ Mechanical Divisions/Sub-division Etc was transferred to Sringar Municipal Corporation/JMC/ Urban Local Bodies vide order No.39 -JK(JSD) of 2021 dated 15.2.2021, as mandated under 74th Constitutional Amendment alongwith regular staff as well as casual Labours/DRWs to ULB, besides funds for engaging Casual Labours/DRWs and other workers who will be engaged by the Corporation as and when necessary. EJAC president said that a huge number of Regular Employees /Casual Labours/DRWs are already working in jal shakti (PHE) Kashmir for years togather and they have apprehensions that their transfer to ULB under above referred order will adversely effect their seniority, regularisation and other monitory benefits including pensionary benefits. Rather said that apprehensions are geniune and justified and urged the goverenment to remove the serious concerns and apprehensions of Jal Shakti employees by adopting analogy as has been adopted by the Government in respect of regular Employees /casual Labours/ DRWs of PDD who happens to be transferred to ULB under same law vide Order No.296-PW(R&B) 2020 dated 2.11.2020 wherein their services treated as on deputation to ULB and their cadre controlling remained with their parent department. EJAC President hailed the work of PHE employees particularly the efforts of Dailywagers who have contributed immensely during Covid-19 and during recent heavy snow fall to ensure un-interrupted water supply and added that Governement should acknowledge the contribution of these employees and their transferr to ULB/SMC should be treated as on deputation as has been done in the case of employees of other Departments including PDD. Rather reteriated the demand of EJAC to regularise services of dailywagers and other temperory employees working in jall shakti and other departments.
