New Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) The All India Federation of Electrical Engineers (AIPEF) has demanded the government to withdraw the Electricity Amendment Bill 2021, saying the policy of public consultation should be followed before bringing the bill.

AIPEF has also requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the matter of the Electricity Amendment Act 2021 being introduced in the upcoming winter session of Parliament.

According to a statement issued by the federation, its chairman Shailendra Dubey has written a letter to the Prime Minister in this regard. In this, the Prime Minister has been requested to direct the officers that the pre-legislative consultation policy should be followed before introducing the Bill in the Parliament.

Dubey has said that if the government does not back down from the plan to introduce this bill in Parliament, then about 15 lakh power workers and engineers across the country will be forced to launch a nationwide agitation.

A meeting of the National Electricity Employees and Engineer Coordination Committee has been called on December 3 to decide the future strategy in this regard.

The objection regarding AIPEF’s Electricity Amendment Bill is that the government has not followed the pre-legislative advisory policy issued in 2014 with respect to this bill. According to this policy, before bringing any bill, the government should bring its draft and then take public opinion on it.

The AIPEF chief said none of these procedures have been followed in the case of the Electricity Amendment Bill. He said that in such a situation this bill should not be introduced in Parliament.
