Engineer’s Day 2018: You Will Be Shocked To Know The Condition Of Engineers In Punjab

Every Indian kid desires to be an engineer right from childhood to fulfill their parent’s dreams. Well, earning a degree brings a sense of pride to every youngster in the country.

It’s 15 September and like every year, the Engineering Community across India celebrates this day as a tribute to the greatest Indian Engineer, Bharat Ratna Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya.

Unfortunately, the latest reports in relation to the condition of Engineers in the country will leave you in a state of shock. As per the reports, more than 75% of the youngsters who will start their duty on Friday as constables in the Punjab police are BTech and MTech degree-holders.
Further, they will draw a little salary of Rs. 10,000 during the probation period of 2 years.

Now after completing their 2 year probation period, these police constables will earn a monthly salary of Rs.20000.

Ashish Sharma, an MCA, who joined as an intelligence assistant said that the private sector had fewer opportunities and the government sector is way more secure.

He further said, “I have been recruited for the intelligence wing. I will be on probation for two years and get a meagre salary of Rs 10,000 per month. After two years, I will get around Rs 40,000 per month.”

After working for 2 years in the private sector, he then worked with the rural government as panchayat secretary.

“I had worked in the private sector for two years and then worked with the rural department as panchayat secretary, which was a semi-governmental post. I applied for a job with Punjab Police last year and got selected. This job is permanent, which gives me security,” Ashish added.
