North Andhra engineers oppose violation of zonal system
Friday, August 4, 2017
Engineers of the Irrigation Department in North Andhra are opposing the reported preparation for seniority list for promotion allegedly in violation of the zonal system.
Uttarandhra Engineers Association wants promotion as deputy executive engineer at zone-level and has opposed any move to make it a State-level post. In a letter to the CMO, they said seniority issue of 1978 and 1979 batches was settled by the Supreme Court in its judgment in February 2016.
They said that despite the judgement, a new methodology was being adopted for promotions and alleged that it was to benefit engineers of Zones II and III. They found fault with the reported recommendation that states that a senior shall be give first preference to promotion to ensure that no junior batch assistant executive engineers will be promoted to the post of the cadre of Deputy Executive Engineer until senior batch in all zones are promoted as DEEs.
