JAMMU: All the stagnated employees of J&K Pollution Control Board (JKPCB), in a plea to NGT and Lieutenant Governor G C Murmu, have sought their urgent intervention in the matter related to career progression of employees working in the Pollution Control Board, stagnated at a place for more than 20 years.
In a statement issued here on Monday, the aggrieved employees said that they feel dejected and demotivated, as with a small reorganisation activity their genuine problems could have been addressed. While appreciating that NGT has now recognised the services of Pollution Control Board as an essential service, the employee leaders said that no serious effort has been made by NGT and the Government of Jammu and Kashmir to boost the morale of officers by promotions or other incentives. Apart from this, no new creation was done in the eight newly carved districts of the erstwhile State of J&K, they added. The stagnated employees said that there has never been any serious effort by the officers of Forest Department, who always remained at the helm of affairs and enjoyed 3 to 4 promotions during past 20 years, reaching to the rank of Chief Conservators from DFOs.
The employees requested the government to accord promotion of all those officials, having a stagnation period ranging from 15 to 20 years urgently, as a lot of dissatisfaction is brewing amongst these employees, who are now at the verge of retirement.
