Jammu: For the first time after unbundling of the Power Development Department, Government has ordered the regularization of more than 200 PDD.
Daily Wagers in the Jammu division, who are having continuous seven years of service without any break.
The regularization has been done on the basis of decisions/recommendations of Divisional Level DPC in its meeting held on 09-02-2021 and approval conveyed by the Managing Director, JPDCL Jammu vide No.MD/JPDCL/Adm/10-1/432-33, dated 06-06-2022 and number MD/JPDCL/10-1/457-58, dated 08-06-202.
“Sanction is hereby accorded to the regularization of PDL/RDLs on probation for a period of two years against the available Class-IV posts (Executive/Ministerial) in the pay level of Rs 14800-47100 (SL-I), notionally with effect from 09-02-2021 (date of convening of 79th DPC) and monetarily from prospective date,” read the order No.CEJ/Adm/DPC/59 of 2020, dated 17-06-2022, issued by the Chief Engineer (Distribution) Jammu, Power Distribution Corporation Ltd, Er Sandeep Seth, who is also Chairman of Divisional Level DPC.
The order assumes significance in view of the fact that this was the first regularization in PDD after unbundling of the department into various Corporations in 2019.
As there was no roadmap for regularization of the daily wagers already working in the department after unbundling, future of thousands of these daily rated temporary workers was in dark.
