ALTHOUGH EMPLOYEES and officials of BHEL are uncertain about the anticipated ‘gift’ on its golden jubilee, outgoing Chief Medical Officer of Kasturba Hospital, Dr O P Arora seems to have got his gift.
A day before his retirement, Dr Arora was elevated as General Manager along with another nine Additional General Managers of the Bhopal unit.
When the BHEL management released the promotion list today, in the golden jubilee year 10 Additional General Managers of Bhopal were promoted as General Managers. Out of the 10 promoted, three have been transferred to other units.
Those promoted as General Managers include A K Telang, A K Dave, V P Shrivastava, Vimal Kumar, S S Gupta, Dilip Sahi, Rupak Bose, R K Malhotra, Dr Arora and N K Pandya.
Those who have been transferred are Vimal Kumar to Haridwar as General Manager (HR), Dilip Sahi as GM (MM), TBG Bhopal and R K Malhotra as GM (GIPCL), Vadodara, PSWR.
Similarly, three AGMs who were promoted as General Managers in other units have been transferred to Bhopal. Dr N C Agrawal, who has been transferred from Haridwar has been appointed as Chief Medical Officer. Dr Agrawal’s transfer to Bhopal has dashed the hopes of Dr Pushpa Talwar, who being the senior most doctor was expecting to get charge of Head of Medical Services. Two other officers who were transferred to Bhopal are T Jambunathan, GM (Finance) and P C Prasad as General Manager (HR).
‘Stop wastage in name of VVIP visit’
BHEL RETIRED Employees Association on Wednesday demanded the BHEL management to immediately stop the ongoing wastage of money in name of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and BHEL Chairman and Managing Director A K Puri’s visit. In a statement issued here, Association general secretary R N Prasad alleged that heavy expenditure was being made in the name of VVIP visit, which should be stopped because BHEL is a government property.
He also raised objection over inducting employees of all units of BHEL in golden jubilee celebrations whereas only employees of Bhopal unit are eligible for it. Prasad said retired employees of Bhopal unit of BHEL should be felicitated for their contribution.
