Jammu Tawi, December 20
Jammu Kashmir Agriculture Technocrats Association JKATA today met Member parliament Shamsher Singh Manhas at his residence and appraised him the problems faced by Agri technocrats (VAEA) of Agri production department.
The delegation was led by Dr Vishal Manhas chairman of JKATA Jammu province.
The delegation explained that state government engaged agri technocrats as RED in 2007 and regularized them in three phases in 2014 2015 and 2016 but put them in NPS scheme. The technocrats render uninterrupted service as REZ but their service is not counted and denied the benefit including promotion and qualifying pension service.
Also state Government degraded the post of JAEO TO VAEA which is lower in pay scale.The grade and designation of VAEA is equivalent to Senior Field Assistant of Agriculture department which is clear cut injustice with qualified lot.
