RESENTMENT IS brewing among the employees and officials of the state owned Madhya Pradesh State Agro Industries Development Corporation (MPSAIDC) as the Chairman of the Corporation has allegedly cancelled orders for providing the benefit of time scale promotion.
Sources in the Corporation told Hindustan Times that the former Managing Director of the Corporation Pukharaj Maroo, who has recently been shifted to Mantralaya, had fulfilled one of the long pending demands of the employees and officers of the Corporation.
He issued orders on January 31 for providing benefit of time-scale promotion to 44 employees of the corporation. When this came to the notice of Chairman of the Corporation Munshilal, he requested the management to cancel all orders on the plea that he was kept in dark while the former Managing Director took the decision. Orders for canceling the previous orders of giving the benefit of time-scale promotion to the Corporation employees were issued on Wednesday.
Talking to Hindustan Times, General Secretary of MP Agro Industries Development Corporation Employees Association Chandra Sekhar Parsai said that resentment had been brewing among the employees because of the action of Chairman. “We shall take up the issue with higher authorities and also demonstrate against withdrawal of orders,” he said.
Parsai said that employees and officials of the Corporation waited for over five years to avail benefits of time-scale promotions. It is unfortunate that these orders have been overturned, he added.
