Srinagar: The punitive action against two engineers of Urban Environmental Engineering department has prompted the department to make the sewage treatment plant (STP) at Pahalgam operational on Tuesday.
In December 2016, divisional commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan had suspended two assistant executive engineers and a junior engineer and sought explanation from them on negligence in rectifying the fault in STP.
Chief Executive Officer Pahalgam Development Authority Mushtaq Simnani said the STP had developed a fault and was made operational again on Tuesday.
A senior official at divisional commissioner office said the suspension of engineers has not been revoked yet. The UEED chief engineer had requested for revocation of his subordinate’s suspension, said the official.
Khan said, “Punitive action would be taken against those officials who would not perform and work by the application of mind.”
