Under UP urban planning and development act 1973, various Development authorities and special area development authorities were created (KAVAL followed by others). At the level of individual authorities recruitments of Junior and assistant engineers were made under the act. On 22nd October 1984 Govt. had issued an order indicating that the services of junior engineers to chief engineers had been made centralized under the engineering cadre. This was implemented by following the transfers from one authority to another. Junior engineer, the class 3 employee, the lowest ranked employee of the cadre had been put in the centralized services.
Inconvenience started taking place when the officers behaved with diploma engineers discriminately. They made us feel that we are inferiors. Govt had also indicated the same. The designation Junior Engineer had been translated in hindi as 'avar abhiyanta' instead of 'kanistha abhiyanta'. Individuals were making the govt aware of the facts that we do have our 50% quota in the cadre thus we are equally good but reverted with no results.
