MP VIDYUT Karmachari Abhiyanta Samanvay Samiti has set March 20 deadline for implementation of wage revision report by MP State Electricity Board (MPSEB), and in the event of Board not implementing the report by then, last phase of agitation by officers and employees of the Board would start with Samanvay Samiti convener Vinay Pandey beginning an indefinite fast at MPSEB headquarters, Jabalpur, from March 25.

Talking to Hindustan Times over the phone, Samiti convener Vinay Pandey said that if there were any intervention on the part of district administration during indefinite fast, the officers and employees would proceed on lightning strike. He added that in this connection notice would be served on MPSEB secretary P K Vaishya tomorrow.

The maiden meeting between the three-member committee constituted by the Board and MP Vidyut Karmachari Sangh Federation regarding wage revision would be held tomorrow, hence the decision to defer the agitation and strike, said the convener.

Pandey asserted that the Board staff wants that the wage revision report submitted by retired Justice Verma should be implemented in true spirit. He said that the agitation and strike had been deferred since the High Court in its verdict of February 24 had quashed the order of State Government through which it had terminated the recognition of MP Vidyut Karmachari Sangh Federation. With this ruling of the High Court, recognition of the Karmachari Sangh Federation had been restored.

He further said that on February 25, a Board meeting was convened in which Chairman of the Board was present. The Board has constituted a new committee, which will have discussion with the Federation and enter into agreement regarding wage revision.

He revealed that with this new development now it has become mandatory on the part of Board administration to have agreement with the Karmachari Sangh Federation for class III and IV employees
