HPSEBL to fill 1,900 tech staff posts by Feb-end

Palampur, February 22

Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Limited (HPSEBL) will fill vacant posts of the technical staff by the end of this month. In the first phase, 1,900 posts of technical staff and 243 posts of junior engineer will be filled.

Sukh Ram Chaudhry, Power Minister, while addressing mediapersons here today, said that the government was well aware of the shortage of the field staff in the HPSEBL and the process to fill all vacant posts had been started. He added that in a phased manner, all posts would be filled. His top priority was to fill the posts of field staff such as linemen and foremen.

He said that the government had taken a major policy decision to discard wooden poles used in transmission lines in the next six months and replace these with steel poles. The minister said the recent decision of the Supreme Court granting environment clearance for power projects in the state would boost the execution of small and major hydropower projects. — OC
