Employees in CIT stage sit-in

Kokrajhar, Jan. 23: Employees of the Central Institute of Technology launched an indefinite sit-in here today in protest against anomalies in appointment of employees in the institute.

The CIT Employees’ Welfare Association, which staged the sit-in in front of the institute’s administrative block, said

The association alleged that salaries were being withdrawn from three accounts opened with the Railway Bhavan branch of SBI in New Delhi in the names of Mahalingam Swami, holding the post of assistant, multi-functional, (account no. 308020712131), Sailendra Kumar Pankaj, lower division clerk, (account no. 20013001411) and Santosh Prasad, lower division clerk, (account no. 20019520703) though these persons have never visited CIT nor attended its official work.

The association alleged that the appointment of these three officials was “doubtful and illegal” as they had been appointed without any advertisement or through the proper channel. It demanded a probe and necessary action.

The employees, including teaching, non-teaching and contractual faculties, submitted a memorandum to the chairman, Board of Governors, Gautam Barua.

The association demanded regularisation of service of contractual employees, upgrade of CIT into a university, appointment of a full-time director, absorption of laboratory technicians as junior technical supervisors on a regular basis and grade pay for some employees in the post of classroom attendants in accordance with the Sixth Pay Commission.

The association’s president, Sangrang Brahma, said they would continue their agitation if their demands were not met.
