As NEA starts earning profit, staff lobby for bonus

Staff of Nepal Electricity Authority, the state-owned electricity producer, manager and distributor, have demanded that they be provided with a hefty bonus as the entity began earning profit after a long time.

The official trade union of the Authority has recently submitted a letter to the Authority’s Managing Director Kul Man Ghising demanding that all the staff be provided with the bonus, equal to their one month pay, on the occasion of its 33rd anniversary being celebrated after few days.

The letter signed by the trade union’s Chairman Janardan Bhattarai argues that the staff’s role in ending the load shedding and ensuring the profit of the corporation is significant; therefore the bonus should be provided so as to keep their willpower and motivation intact.

It also reminds the management that the staff never put forth such demands when the Authority was struggling with finances; hence the demand at this time is genuine.

If the Authority decided to meet the trade union’s expectation, it has to spend around Rs 430 million. There are around 10,000 staff at the Authority now.

Meanwhile, some staff of the Authority have revealed that they are already enjoying better pays and other facilities than those of civil servants; hinting such bonus may not be necessary.

Crackdown on contractors won’t stop despite Mahaseth’s assurance: Home Ministry 4 SHARES FacebookTwitterEmail Onlinekhabar L-R: Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa and Physical Infrastructure Minister Raghubir Mahaseth Kathmandu, June 18 The Ministry of Home Affairs says it will not stop the ongoing crackdown on underperforming and nonperforming contractors just because Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Raghubir Mahaseth reportedly assured that no contractors would be arrested. Mahaseth allegedly told contractors that they could contact him if they faced any action from the Home authority so that he could protect them. But, Home Ministry’s spokesperson Ram Krishna Subedi says the ongoing action would not stop. Whereas Mahaseth has been claiming that the Home Ministry crossed its jurisdiction and entered his sector by launching the crackdown, the Home Ministry says the issue is directly associated with people’s safety and security. “Members of the public have told us that they have been facing problems, they are unsafe because of delay in infrastructure development,” Subedi says, “It is our responsibility to address people’s problems. We can take action to make concerned stakeholders responsible.” “It is not against any law. The administration has to solve people’s problems.” Published on June 18th, Monday, 2018 11:44 AM Download Onlinekhabar App. Android click here & IOS click here .
