Kathmandu, September 21
In a bid to promote internal good governance, the Nepal Electricity Authority, the regulatory body also authorised to produce and distribute electricity across the country, has scrapped its earlier decision that waived the mandatory requirement of two-time attendance for trade union leaders of the Authority.
A staff meeting of the Authority held last week decided that all staff except metre readers have to mark their attendance at the time they join the office and leave everyday, according to the Authority’s Director Tularam Giri.
Earlier, the Authority had let union leaders mark their signature only one time everyday.
It has been learned that the Authority’s administration decided to implement the rule more strictly as trade union leaders concentrated their efforts on pressurising the leadership to transfer staff as they favour.
Staff loyal to key political parties have different unions in the Authority.
