बिजली विभाग के किये जा रहे निगमीकरण व निजीकरण के प्रस्ताव के विरोध में यूटी पावरमैन यूनियन द्वारा संघर्ष शुरू


By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 17th July:- बिजली विभाग के किये जा रहे निगमीकरण /निजीकरण के खिलाफ चण्डीगढ़ के बिजली कर्मचारियों का संघर्ष शुरू हो चुका है। इस प्रस्ताव के विरोध में यूनियन द्वारा आज बिजली दफ्तर, सैक्टर 10 के सामने रोष रैली का आयोजन किया। रैली को यूनियन के महासचिव गोपाल दत्त जोशी, ध्यान सिंह, अमरीक सिंह, पान सिंह, गुरमीत सिंह, दलेर सिंह, रणजीत सिंह, सुरेन्द्र गोयल, लखविन्द्र सिंह आदि यूनियन के पदाधिकारियों ने सम्बोंधित किया।
रैली को सम्बोंधित करते हुए वक्ताओं ने दो दशक पहले शुरू किये गये आर्थिक सुधारों का जिक्र करते हुए कहा कि तथाकथित सुधारों का हवाला देकर तथा बिजली क्षेत्र की वित्तीय हालत सुधारने के नाम पर देश के बिजली बोर्डो को तोड़कर कारपोरेशन व कम्पनियां बना दी। जिसके लिए करोड़ो रूपये अनुदान भी दिया गया। तथा इन कम्पनियों को बिजली की दरें बढाने की खुली छुटृी भी दी गई। आज बिजली की दरों में भारी बढोतरी करने तथा जनता पर भारी टैक्स लगाने के बावजूद जनता को सहूलियत नहीं दी गई फिर भी अविघटित बिजली बोर्डो का घाटा जो कुछ करोड़ में था आज कई सौ करोड़ पहुंच चुका है। महाराष्ट्र में एनरान कम्पनी का बिजली का उत्पादन बीच में ही छोड देना, उडीसा में तुफान के बाद बिजली की आपूर्ति करने से मना कर देना, आन्ध्र प्रदेश में बिजली की दरों में भारी बढोतरी के खिलाफ संघर्ष कर रहे निर्दोष जनता पर गोली चलाकर मौत के घाट उतारना तथा बिजली की दरों में बढ़ोतरी के खिलाफ जनता का तीखा संघर्ष आदि इन नीतियों का दुषपरिणाम सामने है।
यूनियन के पदाधिकारियों ने इन नीतियों के सीधे तौर पर फेल होने का जिक्र करते हुए कहा कि बोर्डो  को तोडकर बनाये गये कार्पोरेशनों व कम्पनियों ने अपना मुनाफा बढाने के लिए अपने आप को दिवालिया तक घोषित करने में भी हिचक नहीं दिखाई। जनता की नाराजगी को देखते हुए केन्द्र सरकार को इन कम्पनियों को 1.90 लाख करोड़ का बेलआउट पैकेज देना पडा है। हालात यहां तक पहुंच गये है कि पुणे व पांडीचेरी की सरकारो ने बिजली की पॉरपोरेशनों को भंग कर इन्हें सरकार के अधीन ले लिया। इस लिये चण्डीगढ़ प्रशासन इन सच्चाईयों से सबक लेकर निगमीकरण करने का प्रस्ताव रद्द करें। क्योंकि प्राईवेट कम्पनियों का मकसद केवल और केवल मुनाफा कमाना है, बिजली बोर्डो को तोड़कर बनाए गये कारर्पोरेशनों व कम्पनियों द्वारा बिजली के दाम बढ़ाकर जनता पर भारी बोझ डालने तथ बिजली क्षेत्र को तबाह करने का हवाला देते हुए  कहा कि चण्डीगढ़ प्रशासन बिजली क्षेत्र को अपने अधीन रखते हुए/ सही मायने में सुधार लागू कर जनता को सस्ती व निर्विघ्न बिजली सप्लाई दे। यूनियन के पदोधिकारियों ने चण्डीगढ़ प्रशासन को जोर देकर कहा कि प्रशासन निगमीकरण करने की बजाये विभाग में खाली पड़ी पोस्टों को भर कर तथा स्टोर में सामान का प्रबंध कर जनता को निर्विघ्न बिजली आपूर्ति करना यकीनी बनायें। उन्होंने प्रशासन को चेतावनी दी की अगर सुचारू रूप से चल रहे बिजली विभाग को कॉरपोरेशन में तबदील कर तहस-नहस करने की कोशिश की गई तो यूनियन लड़ीवार संघर्षो की कड़ी में सभी कार्यालयों के सामने रोष प्रदर्शन कर 5 अगस्त को बिजली दफ्तर, सैक्टर 17 के सामने विशाल रोष धरना देगी जिसमें अगले संघर्षो का ऐलान करेगी जिसमें क्लोनियों, सैक्टरों व मार्किट में जत्था मार्च कर आम लोगो को जागरूक कर पर्चे वितरित किये जाएगे उसके बाद सभी राजनैतिक पार्टीयों, ट्रेड यूनियनों, रैजींडेंट वेलफेयर ऐसोसिएशनो की मीटिंग बुलाकर सम्मेलन का आयोजन किया जाएगा तथा सभी वर्गो को साथ में लेकर हड़ताल का आहवान भी किया जाएगा।

Retired Public Sector Bankers Raise Issue Of Unfair Deal Regarding Pension


By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 15th July:- Different Associations of retired officers of public sector banks held a press conference regarding their pending issues of pension anomalies and skewed policy related to medical reimbursement.
The conference was spearheaded by All India Punjab National Bank Retired Officers Association, which was represented by its Vice President-H.L. Aggarwal. Several Banks’ pensioners' association office bearers and members spoke against the unfair treatment meted out to Senior citizen (pensioners of public sector banks), by the central government.
While addressing the gathering, H.L. Aggarwal, Vice President of All India Punjab National Bank Retired Officers Association said that pension was introduced in 1995 with the assurance that the pension rules would be framed similar to Government of India or the RBI rules. This did not happen till date. Moreover, though salary kept increasing for working employees but the revision of pension never took place. This created an anomaly due to which a situation has come, where the pension of earlier retired manager is even less than that of present day retire peon.
Clarifying further he said that “Since 1995, pension revision never took place. Since then no policy has been framed for the pensioners, which has created a wide discrimination in the pensions of early retirees and those retiring at a later date.
H.L. Aggarwal, Vice President of All India Punjab National Bank Retired Officers Association said that he  wrote a letter to the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Narendra Modi over the pension issues of public sector banks’ pensioners (senior citizens), calling for further intervention in the matter at the highest level.
The pensioners of the different banks highlighted the plight of all public sector bank retired employees’ due to the non -revision of pension issue.
Kuldeep Gupta, Area President of PNB Retired Officers Association of Chandigarh said that it’s our long pending demand for the revision of pension of public sector banks. As we have been neglected for more than 25 years, so we demand that higher authorities personally look into this matter and render justice to us.
Another office bearer said that we demand an increase of the family pension from 15 percent to 30 percent for the retired officers to lead a reasonably good life.
The members demanded to stop the discrimination in the medical facility being provided to the working and nonworking employees.
They demanded to cover the retired employees by health insurance cover at the bank cost. As current premium demand is illogical and skewed. In the present policy, it is difficult for retired officers to bear abnormally high premium expenses from meager pension they received.
The members were hopeful that after formation of the new government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, their grievances would be properly attended to at the earliest.
H L Aggarwal informed that the PMO has forwarded a letter to the Secretary Department of Financial Services (Banking Division) for an early action, which has further forwarded the same to the IBA (Indian Banks’ Association). However, when the retired bankers followed up with IBA officers they simply washed their hands off the issue and turned a blind eye to the senior citizens’ problems.
Due to this type of attitude by the Finance Ministry and IBA (Indian Banks’ Association) this issue has been lingering for the last 25 years which is making the pensioners suffer.
