TURBHE: Con­tin­u­ing with his dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against neg­li­gence in work by NMMC per­son­nel, mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe has dis­missed from ser­vice 111 driv­ers and 103 con­duc­tors who were em­ployed on lump­sum pay­ment and daily wage ba­sis.

Those re­moved from ser­vice have been pun­ished for al­legedly not re­port­ing for work for long. They have also been black­listed. The ad­min­is­tra­tion has also re­quested other pub­lic trans­port bod­ies to not re­cruit them.

Per­ma­nent em­ploy­ees who have been ab­sent for long are now fac­ing de­part­men­tal en­quiry. Th­ese in­clude 10 driv­ers and 15 con­duc tors. Em­ploy­ees who have not been present for de­part­men­tal inquiry have been is­sued no­tices of pro­ceed­ings for dis­missal through the news­pa­per. The dis­missal pro­ceed­ings against them have been ini­ti­ated.

Hence­forth, if any­one em­ployee is ab­sent for more than a month, im­me­di­ate ac­tion will be taken against him. The de­ci­sion will help curb ab­sen­teeism.

To en­sure that the su­per­vi­sors affin­ity to their work in­creases, ac­tion is be­ing taken against lethar­gic em­ploy­ees.

An as­sis­tant traf­fic in­spec­tor has been sus­pended while de­part­men­tal inquiry has been pro­posed against 3 per­son­nel. As a re­sult, changes have been ef­fected in the sched­ules of the buses thereby in­creas­ing the fre­quency of ser­vices and en­sur­ing that the res­i­dents get bus ser­vice in time.

The in­struc­tions have led to the of­fi­cials and per­son­nel in­creasar.ing their ef­fi­ciency at work. NMMT rev­enue in May this year has seen a spurt of Rs 50 lakh as com­pared to the same

month last year. In June, there is a daily in­crease of Rs 3 lakh per day in rev­enue. With the schools and col­leges open­ing, the in­crease is ex­pected to jump to Rs 6 lakh to Rs 7 lakh.
