Scarcity of executives and overloading of some in view of additional charges- the defiance by some to accept responsibilty and administration remaining silent in addressing the issue. GM assured to see to the issue for uniform distribution of work. Association strongly protested against GM’s over pressurisation on field level executives for rendering day to day work. Association is not against to make executives work but then GM also should be involved and address to the genuine constraints being faced by the executives. It must be a holistic effort from all levels. Association also pointed to some actions are being kept pending giving rise to impression of bias towards some executives. GM categorically ruled out such possibility and assured to to take stock of the situation in consultation with the DGMs including implementation of long pending orders.
