FCI employees' union demands recruitment

"There is a lot of work pressure''

LUDHIANA: A Food Corporation of India employees' union on Saturday demanded fresh recruitment citing 12,000 vacancies in the next five years due to retirement of employees in FCI.

Bhartiya Khadya Nigam Karamchari Sangh has asked the FCI management to start the process of fresh recruitment, aimed at improving the work efficiency in the organisation.

``There is a lot of work pressure due to the vacant posts in FCI. In the coming years, the situation would worsen as 12,000 more employees would retire. The management should now start recruiting new employees to ease the work pressure,'' president of the North Zone of Bhartiya Khadya Nigam Karamchari Sangh Om Pal Singh told reporters here.

As per the arrangement between management and employees union in the year 2000, at least 67,000 posts had to be filled in FCI, Mr. Singh said. ``But because of employees'' retirement and VRS (Voluntary Retirement Scheme), the strength has reduced to 44,000 at present,'' he added. Demanding a fixation of specifications for storage loss of food grains, Mr.Singh said: ``There is always a certain amount of loss of food grain during transportation.'' FCI management deducting certain portion of employees' salary for recovering any pilferage or loss of foodgrain, as there is no parameter fixed for ascertaining storage loss, was unjustified,'' he added.
