JNPT introduces transparent and people friendly PAPs policy

With a focus on recruiting Project Affected People (PAPs) to support them, JNPT has come out a transparent plan of action which will see to it that at least one member of each PAP family will get employment with JNPT and other terminals.

 A well thought out employment policy has been framed, says a press release.

With a view avoid any delay as well as misunderstanding, PAPs will be categorised as under:

•      Category A:  Priority given to candidate whose family members have not been given employment in JNPT, NSICT, GTI

•      Category B: Valid multi PAP certificates issued to one family. Once Category A is exhausted, candidate who holds PAP certificates may be considered under this catergory.

Category C: One valid PAP certificate and one job have already been provided. They would be considered only after Category A and B have been exhausted.

A draft list of PAPs has already displayed on JNPT website and the same has been communicated to all 12 local village panchayats. After getting suggestions by 26th of February, the final list would be made and it would be considered by concessionaires for employment.

Sharing the details with the media, Shri Neeraj Bansal, IRS, Chairman-in-charge said that records of 3524 award holders have been identified. Out of that 959 award holders have been allotted land by CIDCO through e-lottery system. The records of 325 award holders were missing and JNPT through continuous effort has succeeded in identifying another 197 award holders and only 128 award holders have not been traced so far despite efforts by all concerned.

 “As a responsible corporate citizen and a government undertaking, JNPT is firmly dedicated to the inclusive growth and has been encouraging the employment of local population to the maximum capacity. Our endeavour is to make sure that all eligible people from the local area who are employable are accommodated,” Shri Bansal added. He also shared the number of people employed by JNPT and its terminals over the years.

The new terminal- PSAs 4th terminal too has accorded priority to the employment of PAPs. In the first phase, out of the total recruitment of 165 employees till date, 92 are recruited from 18 local villages, out of which 52 are PAPs,” Shri Bansal added.

With a view to improve the employable abilities of the local PAPs and other local population, JNPT is in the process of developing CIDCO – JNPT Multi-Skill Development Center to provide and impart proper technical training in different disciplines to PAPs and local persons in order to  create suitable skilled labour force by improving/imparting necessary skill to cater to diverse requirements of labour for maritime logistics in Port terminals, requirements of Maritime and other industries, Port Users, Airports, Service Sector etc. in Maharashtra as per industry norms and Government Regulations, and to augment the future requirement for the skilled labour force in various disciplines, Shri Bansal further said.

The multi-purpose JNPT-SEZ that is coming up on the 277 hectare freehold land of JNPT is going to be a game changer for the local economy and its people, Shri Bansal said and added that already six companies have been allotted land through bidding process and another 15-20 plots will be allotted by February 2018. Total investment from first 6 units is expected to be around Rs 150 crore and expected to provide employment to 2150 people in the region.
