Kanpur: In the rush to beat the Chinese products, we are not as much successful as we should be. They are ahead of us simply because of their dedication to work. We are presumed to be a habitual shirker that has been proved more often.
A few grisly facts are providing a true glimpse of that picture. Just after entering through the Salman Gate of city’s Nagar Nigam office, we find a horde of lazybones acquiring an exceptional dispensation of coming late to the office. This tendency is being followed quite realistically by the NN employees.
If we have the propensity to shirk from the duty of work, the Chinese employees are devoting enough time to their respective categories of work. It has indeed cosiness; the comfort is depending upon a discomfort that surrounds it. There is nothing in which these employees are more criticised than on point of becoming popular as the late comers.
According to a reliable survey report, the Chinese workers contribute more hours in the offices than the Japanese, Americans, Dutch and Germans respectively. Their duration of work was a total of 2200 hours in a complete year; the Japanese were committed for 1719 hours, Americans for 1790 hours, Dutch for 1419 hours and Germans for 1371 hours.
We are possibly not devoting that many hours. We are whimsically late comer. We attend office hours on our correctness. All this is not commendable, neither is it particularly credible; it is typical only, but an unimportant trait.
Following a recent inspection in the Nagar Nigam head offices in Kanpur, the additional municipal commissioner Jitendra Singh found as many as 106 employees of different sections absent from their respective offices. He was shocked to observe a number of absentees in all sections of the office. This is the dereliction of duty. Worse, the whole of the Zonal-IV office staff was found absent. Their number was totalled as 31.
The official time to come to the office is 10 am but employees usually come after 11 am. They were so prudent as to manage their attendance in the register. A clarification in this regard has been sought from them within three days, though such warning was also served earlier.
Puzzled by the employees’ absence, the common people are forced to bear the brunt. Why authorities concerned do lack promptness in effective action?
