Hyderabad: Electricity staff seek easy hiring, promotion norms

Earlier, the certificate of ITI and Pole Climbing Test was not imposed on the Junior Linemen who are dependents of deceased employees. However, after 2009, the provision was made mandatory, making it difficult for them to get promotions in the department.

Rajendranagar: Demanding that the dependents of deceased employees should be granted exemption from producing ITI diploma and pole climbing test in promotions, the leaders of electricity employees unions urged the management to take appropriate measures in this regard.

Ahead of DISCOMs elections of TSSPDCL scheduled to be held on February 17, a meeting of union leaders held on Thursday at Division Officer, Rajendranagar Division at Shivrampally to discuss the modalities and strategies.

During the meeting, the leaders of Telangana Electricity Employees Union (1104) urged the management to ease out some provisions in awarding promotions as well as in fresh appointments to allow more number of jobless candidates to get employment in the department.

Earlier, the certificate of ITI and Pole Climbing Test was not imposed on the Junior Linemen who are dependents of deceased employees. However, after 2009, the provision was made mandatory, making it difficult for them to get promotions in the department.

Furthermore, the SSC candidates are considered eligible for the post of JLM (Junior Line Man) earlier. However, this was also abolished, and only candidates of higher grades are being considered in the appointments. This has made thousands of eligible candidates jobless in the state.

"The government should ease the provisions of promotion for JLMs who are dependents of deceased employees and also reconsider the provisions laid for the fresh appointments to pave way for the candidates to get the jobs in the department," they argued.

Alleging that the old contract labour are suffering exploitation in the hands of their contractors, the leaders said. "Payments are not made regularly to the poor labourers who are identically toiling hard along with the other employees. They are also being deprived from rudimentary benefits such as PF, ESI and Insurance," they blamed. They urged the government to appoint new artisans or engage the new labourers to help the operations runs smoothly.
