3. If there are AE vacancies, the recruitment will be taken up by the management once
in 3 to 4 years. In AEs Recruitment 10% of the vacancies are filled with in service
graduate Sub Engineers(who has B.E/B.Tech with four years service).There is a
limitation of 10% to the Sub engineers to become A.E. But there is no limitation for
lineman to become Sub engineer (or) AAE. After acquiring Diploma by the lineman,
immediately he will be promoted to Sub Engineer. Again after 2 years, he will be
promoted to AAE. There is also a Long Jump offer. He can become AAE directly
from Lineman with sufficient service. But there is no such options to Directly
recruited sub engineers. AAE promotions are being taken by linemans by pulling us
back in the seniority list with the concept of Service weightage. Eventhough Direct
recruited sub engineer has B.E/B.Tech, there is no use. Direct recruited Sub engineer
who has joined in 2002, still working as Sub Engineer, Where as Junior lineman who
has joined in 2003, now working as AAE . The Lineman who can not read English
letter and who can not operate the Computer and who worked under my Supervision
is becoming my officer(AAE) with concept of service weightage. Todays Officers
Tomorrows Slaves
4. In the Direct recruitment of Sub Engineer cadre, Diploma qualification is necessary
condition. But now, it is removed. Diploma (or) B.E/B.Tech candidates are eligible
for Sub Engineers. So many people are stopping their education with Diploma due to
financial problems. They are not able to compete with B.E/B.Tech candidates in the
recruitment. In this way major loss to the unemployed Diploma engineers. In an other
way, all the Department Sub Engineer vacancies are being filled with in service
Diploma holders(Linemans) with out any limitation. There is no necessity for the
management to go for the recruitment. In this way unemployed Diploma holders are
loosing their chances.
5. There is a large shortage of linemans in the Electricity department. O&M Unions also
fighting with the management for the recruitment of Linemans. Day by Day work
load is increasing. To escape from the work load, all the Linemans are obtaining
degree (or) Diploma certificates and converting into LDC (or) Sub Engineers
respectively. Management not at all verifying that the university certificates has
AICTE approval. Existing little number of O&M staff are being entering into
Engineering services & Accounts wing. Then who will do the actual field work. By
the next year no body will be there to do field maintenance work and to attend

So, we D/R Sub Engineers community request you to make Justice to our
community. We have a Total Strength of 2491 all over the Andhra Pradesh in APSEB.

Thanking You,
Yours faithfully

On behalf of D/R Sub Engineers Community
