NTPC Executives Federation of India(NEFI) to strike indefinitely from February 25

NTPC LtdThe NTPC Executives Federation of India has intensified its stir for better pay packages by submitting a 14-point memorandum to the Prime Minister. The Federation, claiming the support of 9,000 NTPC executives of the power generator's staff of 11,000, has decided to go on indefinite strike from February 25. Before this, NTPC executives will also go on token strike for a day on February 17 to demonstrate strength.

"We support the call of indefinite strike by the Oil Sector Officers Association. We gave a 14-point memorandum to the Prime Minister for better pay packages for executives and more autonomy for NTPC to take (a) call on such matters," NTPC Executive Federation of India (NEFI) Chairman Rakesh Pandey said.

When asked whether the strike call given by the NEFI is legal, Pandey replied, "We have already given notice in this regard on December 5 as per the provisions of the Trade Unions Act, 1926, which require one-month notice for such (an) act."

He said the federation is ready to speak to the authorities about this. But if the authorities pay no heed to "our demands, we would not hesitate go on strike for an indefinite period from February 25. Before doing that we would go on token strike for a day on February 17", he added.

Pandey said, "We condemn false propaganda by the Department of Pubic Enterprises that there is 200-300 per cent increase for executives. The ground reality is that the pay packages would be reduced in most of the cases."

Meanwhile, the NTPC Executives Federation of India has appealed to its management not to forcibly depute its executives to run the generating units of UP state power utilities. The appeal comes in the wake of the UPPCL requisitioning the services of the engineers and technicians of NTPC and Power Grid of India to run its power plants following the work boycott by the employees.
