Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Jan 30: All J&K Funds Employees’ Union today highlighted their demands and appealed the Governor to intervene them otherwise they have to resort to the path of agitation.
In a meeting of the Union held here today, State president, Qaiser Andrabi said that they have been going from pillar to post to meet out their demands since 2006 but despite repeated assurances from the higher authorities right from 2009, no heed has been paid to their demands till date by the authorities.
“The attention of the officers who are at present on the helm of affairs is invited towards the facts in 2007. They even submitted the proposals through the Directorates of Funds Organization for redressal of genuine and justified demands and last year, the then Director General Funds sent the proposals to Finance Department but the file is lingering from last two months for its final approval and further submission to SAC, resulting hue and cry among J&K Funds employees,” he added.
He said it is not understood as why discrimination is being done with this organization from last three decades. “The organization is at present over burden with the work load as against 248 sanctioned posts of Compilers only 145 are working, against 56 posts of Examiners only 36 are working and adding to more miseries on the shoulders of J&K Funds in the current year 33 employees are superannuating,” he added.
Andrabi said Government is not making fresh appointments in the organization which ultimately makes the lakhs of employees insurants/GP Fund subscribers to suffer. Besides, he said the decentralization of State Life Insurance as per the orders of Government without any creation is a matter of concern which has added excess work load on the shoulders of J&K Funds employees whose strength is decreasing day by day.
He appealed Governor SP Malik to look into their demands otherwise they will have no alternative, but to resort to strike from 20 February, 2019.
